Sofia Vergara, star of Modern Family, and her fiance, True Blood star Joe Manganiello may have found a surrogate to carry their biological child. The Christian Post reports that Vergara and the Magic Mike actor are have found a surrogate and will soon be contracting with her to have their baby.
The couple publicly announced their engagement in December last year after six months of dating. They have reportedly been looking for a surrogate for the last two months, and have only recently found a match meeting their requirements.
“It was hard, because Sofía wanted to make sure that the woman was someone she could trust,” a source recently told InTouch Weekly.
No one is releasing the likely surrogate’s name out of privacy for her and for Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello and their families. It is said, however, that the surrogate-to-be works closely with Vergara and is her friend.

“Sofía is friends with this woman and spends a lot of time with her,” the source continued, “so she can watch the pregnancy firsthand as if it were her own.”
Sofia Vergara is already the mother of a 23-year-old son. She was married to her high school sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez, when she was just 18. The reason she won’t carry this baby herself is said to be a “closely guarded secret.”
Hopefully everything works out between Sofia Vergara, Joe Manganiello, and this as yet unnamed surrogate. Maybe by the time the couple ties the knot, their baby will be well on his or her way.
