Sofia Vergara shares inside details of 'fairy tale' wedding

Sofia Vergara has just returned from her honeymoon with new husband Joe Manganiello, and of course her nuptials were still very much on her mind as she stopped by Ellen DeGeneres' chat show this week. The Modern Family star, 43, opened up about her "fairy tale" wedding to Joe, which took place in Miami on 21 November, and spoke about her son Manolo, 23, giving her away.


Ellen began by apologising for not making it to the star-studded wedding. "You're not really sorry," Sofia teased. "Why didn't you make a little more effort to go, it's not like they not holding the production for you for one day."
