“Modern Family” bombshell Sofia Vergara, now 39, had her handsome son Manolo when she was just 19, and the Colombian actress tells Redbook magazine that the teenage pregnancy had its benefits. “When I had Manolo, I was 19, and I had the energy for everything,” she says. Vergara married Manolo’s dad, her childhood sweetheart Joe Gonzalez, when she was just 18. The couple divorced two years later.
But the Emmy-nominated star, who is currently dating Florida politician Nick Loeb, can’t imagine getting pregnant again. “My boyfriend now wants to have kids, and I don’t even want to think about it,” she says. “I would have to get into that mindset again, the waking up early.”
I can understand wanting to have a child while young and growing with your child. I was married young and had a child young and there are certainly benefits to having children earlier than later. In fact, my daughter Kaelani is now five months pregnant and this is my first time announcing it. While I would have loved for her to start off life going to college, I know two things for certain, that God doesn’t make mistakes and that she WILL eventually go to college and earn her degree. And I will help her and guide her like a mother should. So in four months, I will be the CincoGRANDMOMMA!
