The ‘Modern Family’ actress shows her love for this very important place

Like all Latinos,  Sofia Vergara  is incredibly proud of her heritage. So it’s understandable that when it comes time to celebrate her beautiful native country of Colombia, the Modern Family actress will get super emotional when something big (like a birthday) occurs in her country. Recently, Sofia took to her social media page to share several photos and a video celebrating the birthday of her hometown in Colombia — Barranquilla. The video that Sofia shared showed the heart and liveliness of the city that gave us celebs like Sofia,  Shakira , editor-in-chief of Elle and Bravo’s Project Runway judge Nina Garcia and celebrity chef Ingrid Hoffman.
