GMA: Sofia Vergara Boston Marathon Bombings

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara came by Good Morning America April 17 2013. The interview began on a somber note. Sofia Vergara’s son goes to school in Boston and when she heard about the bombing, she immediately panicked and wanted to make sure her son was okay. Her son had gone on the train to New York to visit his girlfriend and immediately texted her when he found out about it, so she wouldn’t worry. She said that tragedy was “heartbreaking.”

Sofia Vergara was on GMA to speak about raising awareness of thyroid disease. 30 million Americans, including Amy Robach, suffer from this disease. Vergara was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in her twenties. Vergara said she wanted to raise awareness because a lot of women go for a long time without knowing they have a problem with their thyroid. She said it can change a lot of things, including their mood and fertility. She said it’s just a little blood test to diagnose it.

For 10 years now, since Sofia Vergara’s thyroid was taken out, she has taken medication. She said that she’s never had a problem over those 10 years and has taken control of the problem. She said that being aware and being practical about it is very important.

GMA: Sofia Vergara Blonde

Sofia Vergara’s hair is now blonde. This has become a controversial topic for a lot of people. But Vergara said that she was born blonde. They even showed a picture of her as a little girl. She said that when she started working in Hollywood, everyone was confused about her heritage, because she had a Latin accent, but blonde hair. In order to end the confusion, she dyed her hair dark. She said that the second she did that, she started getting jobs. But now that she’s famous and people know who she is, she decided to let her hair go blonde.

GMA: Sofia Vergara Freezing Eggs

Sofia Vergara made headlines when she made the decision to freeze her eggs, in case she wanted a baby later. She’s 40 now and she said that she wanted to make sure that she could have a baby later if she wanted to, but right now, there isn’t any plan for one. Still, she wanted to make sure. Amy Robach asked her, “How far along are you?” causing a lot of confusion. She meant that she wanted to know how far along in the process of freezing her eggs she was, but Vergara (and probably everyone watching at home, including me) thought she meant how far along in pregnancy Vergara was. Which, of course, Vergara just said she was waiting to have a baby and she wasn’t pregnant at all. It was needlessly confusing. Anyway, once that was cleared up, Sofia Vergara charmingly responded that they were already out and in the refrigerator.
