Sofia Vergara talks about her pending nuptials to actor and director Joe Manganiello — and whether she might become a mom again — in the October issue of InStyle. The magazine, out on newsstands September 18, shows Vergara in a gorgeous, navy blue, belted Jason Wu dress with a deep V-neck on the cover.
Vergara candidly acknowledges in the interview that she's no spring chicken anymore. At 43, with a son who is 22, she told the magazine that she's "really borderline" at her age and that she's willing to be a new mom again, but that she'd probably need a surrogate.
The actress plays Gloria, mom of two, on "Modern Family" and although she said she'll need help with having another baby at her age, she also said, "I don't mind it; it's fine." Her littlest co-star must keep her young!
What kind of husband (and possible dad) will Manganiello be? Vergara revealed that he'll be a great partner because he's "very serious, very straightforward, very easy," and that he can hang with her family at the dinner table for hours. "He talks s--- and drinks Colombian coffee," she said.
But she wasn't always so sure that he would be a good fit for her and her family, and before they began dating she actually thought he was too good-looking. She told the magazine she thought: "It's too much work, and I'm older. I'm 43 years old. I don't want to deal with a guy that every girl is after, you know?" But Vergara says he's not vain, and also doesn't like to drink or party.
As the couple heads toward the aisle, things look perfectly happy.
In a behind-the-scenes video on InStyle's website, she said the advice she'd give her 20-year-old self would be to wear only what looks good on her and not be a slave to fashion trends. As for any clues to what she might wear on her wedding day, Vergara said her bridal gown will likely be a strapless mermaid dress — a style she often wears, and even sometimes receives criticism for on Twitter, asking why she always wears the cut. Her simple answer: She's had a long career and has figured out what looks best on her, so she sticks to it.
