Sofía Vergara revealed there were several reasons she didn't want to have a second child.

"There’s things in life that might sound like good ideas, but they’re not. I was a mother already," the stunning TV star, 51, explained. "I know what it means to be a good mother or to try to be the best mother that you can, and that takes a lot of sacrifices, takes a lot of energy."

Vergara — who shares son Manolo, 32, with ex-husband Joe Gonzalez — admitted her age played a factor in not wanting to have a second child.

At the same time, the Modern Family scene-stealer acknowledged that "thanks to science, women can actually have babies older."

"Before, nature for some reason tells your body at 50 you are in menopause, it’s time for you to be done with that. There is a reason why nature is doing that. But that’s for me, and I totally respect where anyone wants to be a mom after 50," she shared.

"I didn’t think because of my career, the way I live my life, the way my marriage was, that it was fair to bring a kid to this world, and I’m not going to be able to give 100 percent," she explained of other factors that lead to her stance.

The fashion designer added she sees both pros and cons to having a child at an early age.

"It is great that I had him young, because now I’m going to be 52, and he’s 32," Vergara explained.

"I wish I was older sometimes, because I would’ve been more mature, more prepared to be a mother, but that was what I got and what happened," the brunette bombshell spilled. "So I just kept going and try not to look back at it, because it is what it is. But it is fun because I kind of grew up together with my son."

Last month, the latter couple marked a new level of PDA when the Griselda lead posted a photo of Saliman taking care of her after she underwent surgery on her leg.

"He checks all the boxes," a source told a news outlet of her man. "He’s handsome, independent, smart, makes her feel safe, and he’s not an actor."
