Amidst a busy schedule promoting her latest film Hot Pursuit with Hollywood funny girl Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara took time out in between to mark yet another milestone in her American career – the unveiling of her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The comedian was awarded this prestigious honor for her work as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on Modern Family, which has earned her several nominations in the Screen Actors Guild Awards as well as in the Golden Globes. With her career breakout in Hollywood opening doors for her in film, television, endorsements, and even an upcoming Snapchat reality video series with her son, Manolo, we are not surprised that this hardworking woman has now become the first Colombian actress to make it to the walk of fame.
Sofia gave words of thanks to her Modern Family team, as well as to her son, stating that she could not have focused on her career as much if her son had given her problems while he was growing up. Manolo, now 21-years-old, shared kind words about her mother as well, saying that he appreciated Sofia’s success in her career because he saw her go from nothing to accepting her Hollywood star on the podium that day. Sofia accepted her star one day after her frozen embryo fiasco with former fiancé Nick Loeb.

Sofia looked every bit the part of a Hollywood golden girl in a dress by Romona Keveza, which she styled with jewelry from Neil Lane and a pearl-studded gold slingback from Nicholas Kirkwood. Sofia kept her hair in her trademark ombré beach waves, putting on a rose-colored lip and taupe eyes.
