‘Modern Family’ Star Rico Rodriguez on Sofia Vergara: ‘She Treats Me Like One of Her Kids’ (VIDEO)
“She [Vergara] treats me like one of her kids. She’s definitely like my second mother,” gushed Rico Rodriguez, 14, who plays Sofia Vergara’s son on the set of Modern Family.
Celebuzz caught up with the actor at the NCLR Alma Awards on Sunday, and he wasn’t shy about putting in his two cents about Vergara baby talk.
What did Rodriguez add to conversation?
The 40-year-old actress — who currently has a 20-year-old son and recently got engaged to fiance Nick Loeb — told Celebuzz exclusively that she hasn’t ruled out the thought of another pregnancy.
Of course, Rodriguez is thrilled at the idea of Vergara possibly expanding her family.
“That would be awesome!” he raved to Celebuzz.
Rodriguez is a big family man himself — arriving at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium with his sister by his side — whom he claimed to be his lucky charm.
Well, her and the rest of his family.
What did he need the luck for?
The young star was nominated for an Alma Award — Favorite TV Actor for a Supporting Role in a Comedy — for his role as Manny in Modern Family.
And guess what?
He definitely chose the right arm candy on Sunday — reeling in the award for his outstanding achievement.
His real mama and faux mama Vergara must be very proud.
