Sofia Vergara, 51, confirmed she’s “single”, and possibly ready to mingle, following her split from her husband Joe Manganiello, 46, The actress revealed her relationship status when stand-up comedian Ahren Belisle flirted with her on the August 29 episode of America’s Got Talent. Ahren, who has cerebral palsy and can’t speak, used his text-to-speech app to talk to his dog and hit on Sofia. “Go fetch Sofía Viagra,” Ahren said, intentionally butchering Sofia’s last name. The Modern Family star laughed and put her arms up at the judges table, saying, “I’m here! I’m single.”
After Ahren acknowledged he messed up Sofia’s last name, he flirted with her, again. “Make funny jokes — check. Hit on Sofia — check. Brought dog out for bonus votes — check,” he said. When the judges reacted to his performance, Sofia told Ahren that she loves “the way you look at life” and how self-deprecating he is.
Then, Heidi Klum asked Sofia if she’s ever been called “Sofia Viagra” before. “No, they have called me like that before, but I’m single,” the Columbian star said with a smile, as the audience cheered. Ahren looked down and smiled as Sofia threw up a peace sign to end the flirtatious exchange. Sofia wore a zebra-print outfit with a matching ring from EFFY.
