When the America's Got Talent Judge was on The Kelly Clarkson Show on January 23, she opened up about her experience raising him

"I am so proud that he turned out amazing and super hard working. He wants to do things in life; he's excited about life. I think that's what all mothers wish for," she told Host Kelly Clarkson.  "[He's] kind to other people. I don't have anything bad to say about my son." 

Vergara then shared an adorable throwback photo of Manolo as a kid dressed in a bear costume. We also got to catch a glimpse of Vergara and Manolo at the beach in Colombia when he was just a toddler. How cute!

Vergara is no stranger to talking about how much she admires her son. "Every time people compliment me about my son, Manolo, it is very rewarding," she opened up People in 2016. "I raised him trying to set the best example and give him the best that I could. When people compliment me on him, on how well-mannered, how charming, funny, and well-behaved he is, it makes all the sacrifices worthwhile." 

Manolo has followed in his mother's footsteps and pursued a career in the acting industry. He has starred in projects such as Guilty Party, White Rabbit, and Destined to Ride. He also had a role alongside his mother in 2015 with the film Hot Pursuit, where he played a DJ. 

"She kind of wishes I wasn't in this business like at all. She like: 'It's hard, why? Get a real job. Something stable,'" Manolo told ACCESS when discussing his show Guilty Party. "She gives me a lot of advice."
