Sofia Vergara talks wardrobe malfunction, being pregnant on 'Modern Family' (Video)
Sofia Vergara recently appeared on the ABC talk show "Katie," where she talked about her Emmys wardrobe malfunction and about how she feels about being pregnant on "Modern Family."
The 40-year-old Colombian actress had worn a tight, sequined teal Zuhair Murad mermaid gown with front and back cut-outs to the 2012 Emmys ceremony on Sunday, September 23. At one point, the dress ripped, exposing her underwear. She joked about it and posted photos of the damage online and explained to Katie Couric how the highly-publicized embarrassing moment went down.
"We were like in the middle of the show... Well, not even the middle, almost at the end," Vergara explained on the September 26 episode. "Julie [Bowen] was coming back from doing press from winning the Emmy, and it was like in the intermission or in the commercial, and I see her, and she was sitting behind me so I got up - I wanted to take a picture with her and her Emmy and whatever, and I see my friend ... and my boyfriend Nick like running behind me, like, 'No!'"
"I didn't pay attention to them and then everyone saw my booty in that area," Vergara continued. "I had thought it was something small."
She said co-star Ed O'Neill, who plays her husband in "Modern Family," told her "it was bad."
"I sat through a whole segment, and I wanted to fix it or do something because I had a feeling we were going to win. And I didn't want to miss the opportunity to go up there. How many times in my life am I gonna have? I mean, I've already have three times."
Several women she didn't know then took her backstage and sewed her up.
"Modern Family" won its third Emmy for "Outstanding Comedy Series" at the 2012 Emmys ceremony, meaning that it has earned the top prize every year since its 2009 debut. Vergara was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series but lost to Bowen. The show won four awards this year, bringing its total wins to 12.
Vergara became a global sex symbol thanks to the success of "Modern Family." During her interview on "Katie," she also talked about her curvy figure - and 32 F bra cup size, which she had revelled to Allure magazine earlier this year.
"I don't have anything to hide," she told Couric. "I'm very proud of my body. I thank God for what he has given me and I take advantage of it."
As seen in recent TV promos, her "Modern Family" character, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, is pregnant in season 4, which kicks off on Wednesday, September 26 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
"It's going to change for me, because then, actually my hours of shooting with Ed and Rico [Rodriguez], they're very fast, because we come prepared," Vergara explained. "We do it fast - Ed is very professional, and Rico too, he's like an adult. And now, with a baby, it's going to be double because they cry, and then, 'Bring the other one, bring the new one, the diaper' - so we're dreading it."
In real life, the actress is a mother to a 22-year-old man. She told Couric she is "so busy" nowadays and is not currently planning to have a baby in real life.
"Maybe next year I could think about it," she said.
