Sofia Vergara, who is on a promotional spree for Griselda, candidly opened up about her split from Joe Manganiello.

Reason behind Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello's divorce

In a new interview with El País, Sofia said that she got divorced because her husband was younger and he wanted to have kids. However, the actress didn't want to be an old mother as it wouldn't be fair to the baby. "I feel it’s not fair to the baby. I respect whoever does it, but that’s not for me anymore," the actress said.

The actress, who has a son Manolo Gonzalez Vergara from her first husband Joe Gonzalez, added that she had a son at 19, who is now 32. "I’m ready to be a grandmother, not a mother. So, if love comes along, he has to come with [his own] children. I’m almost in menopause; it’s the natural way of things. When my son becomes a dad, let him bring the baby to me for a while and then I’ll give it back to him and go on with my life; that’s what I have to do,” the actress concluded.
