Forget a birthday cake for her 40th birthday. Sofia Vergara got something much sweeter from her on-again beau Nick Loeb: a diamond ring. Although her rep denies the rock is an actual engagement ring "as of today," multiple reports are claiming Loeb, a Florida-based politician and businessman, popped the question while celebrating her milestone birthday in Mexico on Monday. One source tells omg! that he got down on one knee at the Mayan archaeological ruins of Chichen Itza in front of her friends and family who were also on the trip.
After the supposed proposal, everyone headed back to the Rosewood Mayakoba resort, where they continued the revelry with Vergara’s “Modern Family” castmates Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, and Sarah Hyland. In fact, the secret engagement was first blabbed when her friend Fernando Fiore, who once starred with her on “Fuera de Serie,” tweeted a photo from her party – and everyone zeroed in on the huge diamond ring on her left hand. Just before, he made another Twitter boo-boo when he hinted that she was in for a surprise.
Vergara and Loeb, 36, first broke up in May after just over two years of dating amid reports that the two had very different personalities (she’s fiery; he’s controlling) and were constantly bickering. But three weeks later, the exes were spotted meeting up for a cozy and romantic dinner in New York City. The actress, who has a son Manolo, 19, from her first marriage to Joe Gonzalez, was by Loeb’s side in August 2010 when he suffered a pelvis fracture after crashing his car off a cliff in Los Angeles.
Do you think they'll get married or break up again?
