Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara and Mom Sofia Celebrate Hollywood Star

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.

She was joined by her son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara, who was born on September 16, 1992. His father is Sofia’s high-school sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez, whom she married when she was 18. They divorced in 1993.

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, who was 21-years-old at the time, 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.
