It is set into the ground next to the star of Vergara’s co-star Ed O’Neill, who plays her husband in “Modern Family”.
This honor was “just unbelievable,” said Vergara with her unmistakable accent. She is the first Colombian actress with a star on the “Walk of Fame”, said Vergara’s son Manolo. The 22-year-old gave a loving speech. She is the best mother who has worked so hard on her career. “You deserve that,” said the son, beaming. Despite her successes, she remained completely normal, emphasized the offspring. His mother would like to eat cake and watch TV.
You have the best curves and a huge heart, joked co-star Eric Stonestreet (43). “And it smells good too,” said the actor who plays the gay Cameron Tucker in “Modern Family”.
Vergara brought numerous relatives and her fiancé Joe Manganiello, 38, with her to the ceremony. According to their own statements, the actor couple is currently planning a big wedding.
For her appearance in the hit series “Modern Family”, Vergara has been nominated for an Emmy and other awards several times. In June she can be seen in the cinema alongside Reese Witherspoon in the comedy “Miss Bodyguard”.
