Sofia Vergara Stars In Head & Shoulders Campaign With Her Son, Manolo Gonzalez Vergara
Sofia Vergara may be dating True Blood hunk Joe Manganiello, but it’s her son, Manolo Gonzalez Vergara, who appears by her side in her new Head & Shoulders commercial.
Who Is Manolo Gonzalez Vergara?
Since Vergara, 42, has been photographed traveling the world with her son, Manolo, 21, by her side since she shot to superstardom on Modern Family. Vergara gave birth to her son when she was just 19-years-old and married to her high school sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez. Vergara and Gonzalez divorced in 1993 when Manolo was two, but remain friends.
“The divorce between my mom and dad is atypical… because they get along very well, they are still best friends. When he visits me in LA he stays with us at our home,” Manolo said in a 2012 Father’s Day video.
When he was younger, Manolo would travel with his mother and documented their adventures in a webseries called Mi Vida Con Toty.
Vergara frequently spoke about their travels, joking that she loved when strangers assumed her son was actually her younger boyfriend. Manolo, however, was less than thrilled by the misunderstandings. “He hates it, I love it…I only date guys that are at least 10 years older than him, because or else, I feel bad,” Vergara told Chelsea Handler during an appearance on Chelsea Lately.
Manolo currently attends college in Boston.
