‘Modern Family’ star Sofia Vergara engaged to Nick Loeb

Mrs. Carter: Sofia Vergara’s about to walk down the aisle for a second time!

After reports surfaced earlier this year that the “Modern Family” star and her boyfriend Nick Loeb had broken up, they have since done more than just get back together — they are also now engaged! Wonderwall first reported the news, and Vergara has been sporting a rather fancy new piece of jewelry on her finger.

Loeb and Vergara first met back in 2010 at a Golden Globes party, and the two have dated on and off ever since. Outside of dating Vergara, Loeb is best known courtesy of nearly dying in a car accident that led to the actress helping to nurse him back to health. As an environmental businessman, he also briefly considered a run for Florida’s state senate. It’s not often that you see celebrity and politics play out in the way it has here, but these two have found a way to make it work without a problem.

This will be Vergara’s second marriage, as she wed Joe Gonzales back when she was still a teenager, but they divorced all the way back in 1993. The couple has a 20-year old son in Manolo

The new season of “Modern Family” is going to start filming soon, and the show is set for a season 4 premiere date this fall on ABC. We’ll let you know here when some more details come out about the upcoming year — including guest stars and how Vergara’s character of Gloria further handles the pregnancy bombshell from the finale.

For now, congratulations to the happy couple! If you want to view some more “Modern Family” stories, be sure to check out the story here.
