Sofia Vergara and Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara

When Sofia Vergara showed up to Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, she wasn’t on the arm Joe Manganiello — instead, she brought her 25-year-old son Manolo, who said he’s often invited to red carpets when Manganiello (who’s currently filming a movie in New York) is busy.

Sofia Vergara brought her son as her Emmys date

Instead of walking the 2017 Emmys red carpet with her husband Joe Manganiello, Sofia Vergara brought along a much younger man as her date — her son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara.

The 25-year-old looked dapper in a black tux while his mom stunned in a curve-hugging white gown.

So where was Manganiello? Vergara said he’s unfortunately shooting a movie in New York, so she turned to her son to keep her company on the red carpet. Cute!
