The Vergara family is big on sending each other birthday shout outs on social media. This July, when Vergara turned 51, Manolo posted a rare, throwback photo of Vergara holding Manolo, adorably dressed in a cowboy costume when he was just a toddler.

"Happy Birthday ma!!!!!! Te queiro mucho," Manolo captioned the post. How sweet!

This isn't the only time we've caught a glimpse into Vergara's early days as a mom. In April 2023, she also posted a vintage snapshot of her and Manolo all the way back in the 90s. In the cute picture, Vergara rocked some blonde streaks while she and Manolo smiled, sitting on a couch.

Manolo graduated from Emerson College in Boston in 2015, and has since followed in his mother's footsteps by pursuing a career in the entertainment 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. 

Vergara has strong opinions about her son becoming an actor. "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. Sometimes I don't ask for it, but she gives me a lot of advice," he added.

Vergara and Manolo have a very close relationship. "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."
