Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello had a special family celebration at the weekend when they attended her son's college graduation. The Modern Family beauty was very much the proud mama as her son Manolo Gonzalez Vergara graduated from Emerson College with a degree in film production. She published several photos of the event on Instagram, labelling them simply: "Bravo" and "So happy".

Manolo, 23, is from her short-lived marriage to her childhood sweetheart Joe Gonzalez when she was 18. A huge family group was with them during the weekend of festivities in Boston, which Sofia described as "Team Manolo".

It's a happy time for the Colombian stunner, who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the start of May.

Later in the autumn she is expected to marry her 38-year-old fiancé. The couple got engaged on Christmas Day after a six-month courtship. Joe has worked hard to win Sofia over.

Two days after she announced the end of her previous engagement to businessman Nick Loeb, the Magic Mike star asked a mutual friend Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Mitchell in Modern Family, for her number. At first she refused on the grounds that the 6ft 5in hunk was "too handsome".

TA DAH! #HollywoodWalkOfFame #SofiaVergaraDay

Luckily, he was undeterred and the duo have been inseparable ever since. They were last seen together on US Mother's Day when they joined their two families together for a joint celebration. Sofia told Vanity Fair: "There’s nothing about him I’d change other than the fact that he’s four years younger than me."

The couple may well add to their family. The actress has said: "My son, Manolo, is 23 years old, which is going to be really weird if I have another baby. But, you know, Joe wants babies and if it’s going to make him super-happy, then...."
