Sofia Vergara on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Sofia Vergara has been engaged to fiancé Nick Loeb since July 2012, but don't let that year and a half engagement fool you-her wedding isn't happening anytime soon.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, the Modern Family bombshell talked wedding plans, and addressed rumors that she has three wedding celebrations in the works.
When DeGeneres asked her to confirm the blowout wedding stories, Vergara replied, "No! It's been awful because since that news came out, all of my family is so excited. They are already planning outfits! It's like 'What are we going to do?' 'How are you going to get us there?' And, I'm like it's horrible and disappointing to have to tell them that that is not true."
In fact, Vergara continued, she hasn't even planned one wedding. "I haven't even planned anything!" she said.
Her hesitation isn't because of cold feet, but rather due to her enormous family. "It's either I do something really big, or I do something really small with Nick and I and my son, and then my mom, and then my cousins, and then it's impossible," she explained.
We totally get it; when brides and grooms have large extended families, the "small wedding" idea becomes tricky. No one wants to leave out cousins and other close relations just to keep a guest list small!
Whatever size wedding she has, she does have one thing taken care of: The bachelorette party. In true Ellen DeGeneres form, the talk show host continued her streak of hilarious wedding stunts by surprising Vergara with a male stripper.
During the segment, a "barista" arrived on stage to deliver one of Vergara's favorite coffee drinks, but as she took a sip, DeGeneres gave her a "bachelorette" sash, and he took off his shirt and danced-dollar bills and all! Naturally, she went along with it, though she did jokingly say a prayer.
With that, she can check "hen night" off her to-do list, along with wedding dress designer. Back in October, she announced that she'd chosen Vera Wang to make her gown.
"Her dresses are amazing...they are perfect," she said at her Kmart fall and holiday clothing line preview. "She knows my body so well. I want something modern and elegant. I've been married before so nothing too traditional or crazy."
Picking the dress, she revealed, "will be the one easy thing to do. The rest is going to take lots of time."
The actress also revealed that she and Loeb already act and feel like husband and wife.
"I don't see a difference from what I'm living right now. I feel like we are already married," she said. "We live together, and we travel together. We know each other's family. So really it's just a huge party to plan. That's the only difference."
