Why Sofia Vergara Is Rushing to Have Another Baby

Actress Sofia Vergara says she will have a baby with her fiance Joe Manganiello from Magic Mike XXL, and it may be sooner than we think! Her reason? He's never had kids, and she wants to make him happy. Now that's love!


"Joe is younger than me," the 42-year-old explained in a recent Redbook interview. "He's 38. He's never had kids. How am I going to say no? I tell him if we're going to do this, we have to do it, like, now, because I don't want to be 50 with a baby."

Given Sofia has a son from her previous marriage who just graduated college, I hafta say that her willingness to plunge back into mommyhood for her husband's sake is amazingly generous of her. Because I do think it's hard for couples where one has a child already and the other doesn't, and wants to. As they always say, you can't have half a child! I think many divorces who've had a child are adamant they don't want another. So, hats off to Sofia for being flexible.

I also think her decision is amazing because no matter how much her husband-to-be says he'll help out, I still think motherhood takes a greater toll on the mom in terms of her time and energy. Sofia, you're a saint -- and Joe is a very lucky man.

Would you have another child if your husband wanted to but you didn't?
