Things are really happening for Modern Family
star Sofia Vergara! First, there was a successful contract negotiation for Vergara and her adult costars, including Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson that has given all of them a significant pay raise. The stars of the hit sitcom are now making close to six figures per episode! But that's not even the most exciting thing happening in the Colombian-born actress's life: Sofia Vergara is also engaged to longtime boyfriend Nick Loeb, 36!
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, Sofia Vergara's character on her hit show, is married for the second time and is raising a precocious ten-year-old son from her first marriage. In real life, the actress, who just turned 40, has a twenty-year-old son from a previous relationship. (Compare that to the recent celebrity wedding trend of stars getting married in their early twenties and even late teens--we're looking at you, Miley Cyrus!)
The fact that Sofia Vergara is engaged will have no direct impact on her show, but the show's stars and creators have hinted that marriage will play a role in the upcoming third season of the show. Perhaps young Hailey Dunphy will want to marry her high school boyfriend, or maybe the show will even feature a marriage ceremony between Cam and Mitch. No matter who it is tying the knot, we can picture Gloria swooping in to make sure the wedding is picture perfect.

Unlike many starlets who show off their celebrity engagement rings via Facebook and Twitter, Vergara has remained quiet about her new bling. From photos, Sofia Vergara's engagement ring appears to a sizable diamond of a square shape—perhaps a cushion cut or an emerald cut. The quality and cut levels seems to be pretty high —even in photos, the diamond sparkles and gleams. All told, there is no doubt that Loeb paid a small fortune, perhaps in the six figures, for this opulent celebrity engagement ring.
No word yet on Sofia Vergara's wedding plans, but like most celebrity weddings, it will probably take place on a private estate, far from prying eyes and the paparazzi. The beautiful star often chooses dresses that emphasize her famous curves, and her wedding dress is likely to be no exception. We're predicting a Vera Wang strapless trumpet dress in ivory taffeta, with a traditional mantilla veil as a nod to Vergara's heritage. And while most celebrity wedding rings are diamond-studded and ornate, we can picture Vergara sticking to a simple, traditional gold band to accent her fabulous engagement ring.
