Speaking to the Spanish publication El País, the 51-year-old star revealed that her ex-husband wanted kids and she did not.

The Colombian-bred beauty said: ‘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 the outlet, ‘I feel it’s not fair to the baby. I respect whoever does it, but that’s not for me anymore.’

Mentioning her son Manolo from her first marriage to high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez, she noted, ‘I had a son at 19, who is now 32, and I’m ready to be a grandmother, not a mother. 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,’ she added. 

‘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,’ Vergara emphasized.

She and Joe announced their divorce in a joint statement shared last July.

They said: ‘We have made the difficult decision to divorce. 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.’

Only two days after announcing their split, the True Blood actor filed for divorce and listed their date of separation as July 2.

The reason for the end of their marriage was cited as ‘irreconcilable differences.’ 

In the wake of their separation, Sofia has busied herself with new love interest Justin Saliman, an orthopedic surgeon.
