In the new issue of Glam Belleza Latina, celebrity mom and Modern Family star Sofia Vergara makes it clear how important family is to her. She dishes on hard work, family and celebrating her fortieth birthday in style – with those closest to her!
Sofia on her bilingual appeal:
“For me, it’s so clear. There are millions of hardworking Latinos in the U.S., doing their jobs, willing to try harder to succeed, and taking good care of their kids and family. We all spend, buy, participate heavily in this economy, and support each other. So I am one of them. I made my crossover, but I am still 100 percent a Latina mom.”
Sofia on her relationship with her family:
“They are all so happy for me and supportive. I celebrated my fortieth birthday in Mexico by flying 100 of them in from Barranquilla, Bogotá, Miami, and Los Angeles, and we spent a week partying like crazy. My family is what keeps me going, is my engine, what makes me happiest. For the Emmys I invited 20 of them, and we all went together to the ceremony and the parties and had the best time. Because fame came so early in my life, they don’t read much into it.”
Sofia on what the term Latina beauty means to her:
“I see it more like an attitude. The glam and sexiness of Latinas live in the fact that most of us take great care of ourselves; we make our hair beautiful; we love perfume; we can wear high heels without complaining. I remember my mother and aunts always wearing makeup and looking beautiful even if it was just to drop us off at school.”
