BIOGRAPHY:

Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara (born July 10, 1972) is a Colombian actress, television hostess, and model.

Born in Barranquilla, Colombia. Her mother, Margarita Vergara Dávila de Vergara, is a housewife, and her father, Julio Enrique Vergara Robayo, produced cattle for the meat industry. "Toti" was the nickname given to Vergara by her five brothers and sisters and many cousins. She grew up in Barranquilla, and was raised as a devout Catholic in a well-off family, attending a private bilingual Spanish/English school, known as Marymount School Barranquilla.

After a marriage at 18 and divorce two years later, Vergara studied pre-dentistry at a university in Colombia for three years. Then, many opportunities arose for her to work in modeling and in show business, and Vergara decided to pursue them, leaving her undergraduate studies two semesters shy of her undergraduate degree. Soon after, she decided to move to Miami to take advantage of opportunities and to move away from unrest in Colombia (her older brother was murdered in 1998 during an attempt to kidnap him). She brought her son, mother and sister with her. Her cousin and adopted sister, Sandra, is also a television actress in the United States.

Vergara had been widely known for co-hosting two television shows for Spanish-language television network Univisión in the late 1990s. Her first notable acting job in English was in the 2003 film Chasing Papi. Subsequently, she appeared in films, including twoTyler Perry films, Meet the Browns (2008) and Madea Goes to Jail (2009), receiving an ALMA Award nomination for the latter. Vergara's success on television has earned her roles in recent films, The Smurfs (2011), New Year's Eve (2011), Happy Feet Two (2011) The Three Stooges (2012), and Escape From Planet Earth (2013). In 2012 and 2013, she was the top-earning actress on US television.

Vergara stars on the ABC series Modern Family as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, for which she was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, four Primetime Emmy Awards, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In 2011, Vergara was named the new face of CoverGirl, with the first advertisements appearing in January 2012. In April 2011, Vergara appeared in a Diet Pepsi commercial with David Beckham, and another in January 2012. In 2011, it was announced that Vergara is designing a clothing line for K-Mart targeting soccer moms, and appeared in a number of commercials for Comcast's Xfinity brand and State Farm.

In 2013, she signed endorsement contracts with Diet Pepsi, Rooms To Go and medicine Synthroid.

Vergara was married at the age of 18 to her childhood sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez. She gave birth to their son Manolo (b. September 1992). They divorced in (1993).

In 1998, Vergara's older brother, Rafael, was murdered in Bogota. On May 9, 2011, Vergara's younger brother, Julio, was deported from the United States to Colombia after being arrested in April; Julio also had a longtime drug addiction and previous brushes with the law. "To see somebody dying over 10 years, little by little, that's the worst punishment," Vergara told Parade magazine. "Now he's like another person".

Vergara was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2000. She had her thyroid removed, underwent iodine radiation therapy and made a full recovery. She takes medication daily to control the symptoms of hypothyroidism.

On July 10, 2012, it was reported that Vergara and her businessman boyfriend Nick Loeb were engaged.
