The Modern Family costars were chatting about the bombshell's beginnings, as Ferguson described her as "an immigrant ... who came to Miami to start a new life."

The America's Got Talent judge, 51, admitted she never could have predicted her success, quipping that when she came to America, "I thought I was just going to marry rich, but it didn't happen."

"We have made the difficult decision to divorce," their joint social media message read. "As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives."

The duo cited irreconcilable differences as the cause for the split, something the Griselda lead touched on in a recent interview.

"My marriage broke up because my husband was younger. He wanted to have kids and I didn’t want to be an old mom," she explained to El País. "I feel it’s not fair to the baby. I respect whoever does it, but that’s not for me anymore."

"I had a son at 19, who is now 32, and I’m ready to be a grandmother, not a mother," the fashion designer added, referring to her and ex-husband Joe Gonzalez's only child, Manolo.

"So, if love comes along, he has to come with [his own] children. I’m almost in menopause, it’s the natural way of things," Vergara continued. "When my son becomes a dad, let him bring the baby to me for a while and then I’ll give it back to him and go on with my life. That’s what I have to do."

In November 2023, the star sparked dating rumors with orthopedic surgeon Justin Saliman, but a source said she's enjoying dating around and isn't trying to settle down.
