While she tends to have a "now or never" mentality about having a baby in her 40s, she's tells The Editthat she's not opposed to the idea. "I became a mother very young -- at 20 -- so I feel like I've been a mother my whole life, but I love that," the Modern Family actress said, referring to her son Manolo, who she shares with first husband Joe Gonzalez. "Now that I'm 43 and my son is 23. It's funny to see some of my girlfriends raising young kids. In the US, women postpone motherhood, but in Latin America most of my friends have kids my son's age."
Vergara says Manganiello, 39, would like a family of his own. "My husband is younger than me and he wants kids so we're trying to figure out what we're going to do," she explained. "The idea of doing it all again doesn't scare me but, hey, it's not like it's going to happen naturally, is it?"
The gorgeous TV star added that getting older isn't so fun for her. "Watching myself age on screen is awful! There is nothing more disturbing than watching an episode of Modern Family from the first season, then one from seven years later. It just makes me want to kill myself, but what can I do?" she told the magazine. "I'll be sad when the wolf whistles stop. I'm already sad that men have started calling me 'Señora.' I get really p***ed off: 'What? It's Señorita!'"
When ET chatted with Vergara's handsome hubby, he admitted that he can be "very protective" of his spouse -- and we're sure he'd be the same with any children they may have. "I was a bouncer and a bodyguard all the way through college and then into living in L.A. for a little while, and I go into that mode," he said. "So everyone will wind up loving her, and they'll hate me, because I'm protecting her."
