Check Out Sofia Vergara As A Blushing Bride At 18

Sofia Vergara, 'Modern Family' star and age-defying beauty, reportedly got engaged to Joe Manganiello in late December -- and these vintage photos of the star at 18 are proof that she'll definitely be a beautiful bride.

At 18, Vergara married her childhood sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez. (Their 22-year-old son, Manolo, has appeared with his famed mom in a bunch of commercials for Head & Shoulders products.)

Though Vergara wasn't a star in 1991, she certainly looked like a celebrity. With bright red lips, dewy skin and a traditional gown covered in pearls, she was simply stunning.

Vergara and Gonzalez divorced in 1993, but she told Parade magazine that they are still close friends and devoted co-parents. "When José comes to the United States, he stays with me," she said.
