Personal Photos of "Modern Family" Star Sofia Vergara Up for Sale

ABC/BOB D'AMICO(NEW YORK) -- Private photos of Modern Family star Sofia Vergara that were stolen from her fiancé’s BlackBerry several months ago have been put up for sale, the New York Post reports.

Sources tell the newspaper the photos are not nude images, but are personal in nature.  One source says “The photos show Sofia in her bathroom and the bedroom, and, while they are personal, they are not fully revealing.”

The Post cites a source as saying the snapshots were put up for sale by an individual in Delray Beach, Fla.

One insider says Vergara’s legal and management team are taking aggressive steps to make sure the photos do not become public.  The Post says reps for Vergara and fiancé Nick Loeb could not be reached for comment.

Sofia Vergara Dishes on "Modern Family" and Emmys

ABC/BOB D'AMICO(NEW YORK) -- After winning five awards and almost sweeping the comedy category at this year’s Emmys, there’s no denying Modern Family is one of the biggest shows on television right now.

While other shows have reports of offstage fights among cast members, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara insists that isn’t the case on the ABC hit.

“I don’t think anyone has ever had a fight in the three seasons that we’ve been together,” Vergara told Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer. “We’re always together. It’s been amazing. The kids love each other. It’s been like a dream. I get along with Julie, I love Julie.”

At the Emmys on Sept. 23, Julie Bowen, who plays Claire on the ABC hit, won the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, beating Vergara. It was Bowen’s second Emmy win. During her acceptance speech, Bowen said, “Sofia, man, I know you’re younger than me but I wanna be you when I grow up.”

“I keep telling her. Why does she need two, give me one at least,” Vergara told Spencer, laughing. “But she’s amazing and she deserves it. I mean she’s an important part of the show as we all are. So if she wins, it’s like I win.”

But Vergara didn’t leave the Emmys without honors. During the award show’s red carpet, fans voted for People magazine’s “TV’s Sexiest Woman.” Not surprisingly, she won.

VIDEO: Sofia Vergara’s Epic Engagement

ABC/BOB D'AMICO(LOS ANGELES) -- Sofia Vergara’s engagement was quite the affair. Vergara’s son, Manolo Gonzalez, uploaded a video Wednesday recapping the Modern Family star’s epic 40th birthday weekend in Mexico that featured her longtime boyfriend, Nick Loeb, popping the question.

Gonzalez, 19, chronicled the craziness that ensues when “107 of your family and friends” try to navigate the Mayan ruins in Chichen Itza. One of those friends included Vergara’s Modern Family co-star, Julie Bowen.

Vergara’s family obtained special access so the actress could climb to the top of the ancient pyramid.

“Once they went to the top,” Gonzalez says, “my mother’s longtime boyfriend proposed.”

Vergara’s reps have yet to confirm the engagement.

On their way down, the couple ran into authorities who questioned why they jumped the ropes to get to the top. One suggested Vergara “surrender.” She laughed it off.

“It would’ve been funny, sad, but hilarious, if she had gone to a Mexican prison,” Gonzalez says.

Cut to the party, which is a post -pyramid lunch to celebrate the engagement. Vergara sways, sips, and shows off her ring finger Beyonce-style. Gonzalez says he’s looking forward to his mom turning 50.

“Who knows where we’ll go?,” he says. “I’m thinking Cleveland.”

Vergara is a cover girl and a businesswoman who owns her own production company. She also has a clothing line at Kmart, and has snagged multiple endorsement deals – in English and Spanish – for Burger King, Pepsi and other companies.

Sofia Vergara Rep Denies Reported Engagement

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A representative for Sofia Vergara has denied a report that the Colombian actress got an early birthday present with an engagement to her longtime businessman boyfriend, Nick Loeb.

“As of today, Sofia is not engaged,” the rep told

The couple had reportedly split up two months ago. Loeb has been in Mexico with Vergara and her friends and family for the past week celebrating her 40th birthday (July 10) at the Rosewood Mayakoba spa resort in the Riviera Maya.

Loeb popped the question while the group was touring the Mayan archeological ruins of Chichen Itza, a source told Wonderwall.

One of the Modern Family star’s friends Monday posted a photo on Twitter of the actress wearing a big diamond on her ring finger in Mexico.

This would be the second marriage for Vergara. At age 18, she married childhood sweetheart Jose Gonzales, and gave birth to son Manolo in 1992. The pair divorced a year later, in 1993.

"Modern Family" Star Sofia Vergara Wants To Freeze Her Eggs

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Modern Family's Sofia Vergara is approaching her 40th birthday with an eye on family matters of her own.

In an interview in the April issue of InStyle, the Colombian actress says that although she has no firm plans to have children with her boyfriend Nick Loeb, she might have a stand-by idea: “I guess I am going to think about freezing my eggs,” says Vergara, who plays Gloria on the ABC comedy.

Speaking about her relationship with businessman Loeb, Vergara says at the start, “The most important thing was that he was very handsome.”  She soon discovered he was also "very funny, talking s**t to me like a normal person.”

The former model also opens up about a tragedy that hit her hard in 1998, when her brother Rafael was kidnapped and killed.  She tells how her family -- in particular her 19-year-old son Manolo -- kept her going through tough times.

“You can’t just sit in your house and think about the tragedy,” she says.  “That’s when people get depressed and their lives stop.”
