Wowzers, That’s Quite the Ring! Did Sofia Vergara Get Engaged?
Rumor has it that Sofia Vergara’s on-again-off-again boyfriend, Nick Loeb, popped the question around her 40th birthday. But is it true?
Remember how Sofia Vergara and her boyfriend of two years, environmental businessman Nick Loeb, broke up two months ago? Well, rumor has it that they’re back on—and that they’re taking their relationship to the next level.
Sofia, you see, has been spending her 40th birthday week (happy birthday, by the way! We adore you, Sofia!) down in Mexico, living it up with her friends and family at the Rosewood Mayakoba spa resort in the Riviera Maya. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the birthday group includes Sofia’s Modern Family co-stars Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, her son Manolo, Fernando Fiore (a Hispanic television sportscaster)… and Nick, of course. The couple reconciled at the beginning of June; a source revealed to People that they still care for each other decided to try to work out their differences.
Anyhoo, on Monday, the aforementioned Fernando Fiore posted a pic of Sofia’s birthday festivities on Twitter in which she appears to be wearing quite the sparkler on her left hand:
The photo may be blurry, but naturally, it immediately prompted speculation as to where the ring had come from. It’s rumored that Nick popped the question when they visited the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza.
But is it true? Well…. We don’t really know yet. According to People, one source has said that Nick and Sofia are in fact engaged, while other sources say that they aren’t. The actress’ reps haven’t yet responded to the Hollywood Reporter, and an unnamed Mexico-based rep for her told People Espanol, “As of today, Sofia is not engaged.”
So for now, it looks like we’ll have to content ourselves with continued speculation. If it IS true, though, congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you the very best!
