Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is glad she had her son when she was young because they are ‘friends’ now that he is grown up. The 43-year-old beauty is close ‘friends’ with 23-year-old Manolo - who she had with high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez when she was just 20 years old.
She said having a baby when she did was ideal because she had so much energy to keep up with the demands of parenthood, reported Daily Mirror. “I think it helps when he grows up and you are like friends, as well as mother and son. It’s fantastic to have your kids <g data-gr-id="13" style="color: #3b3b3b; font-size: 11px;">young,</g> because you have so much energy,” Vergara said.
