In real life the 41-year-old Colombian actress is mother to 21-year-old Manolo that she raised as a single mother after divorcing at age 20. 

 The show was developed by Vergara’s production company Latin World Entertainment. This is one of a series of projects Vergara and her business partner in Latin World, Luis Balaguer, have developed and successfully pitched. Most recently Fox agreed to partner with Vergara on a TV comedy ‘Speak America’ that centers around the life of a Latina teacher who helps students get rid of their accents.
