“Modern Family” superstar Sofía Vergara will be standing by her man, Nick Loeb, as he announces his candidacy for the U.S. Senate on Thursday in Miami.
The newspaper said Loeb appreciates Vergara’s support and that they endured a rough time after he experienced a near-death car accident.
"Sofia was wonderful. She took care of me," The Miami Herald quoted Loeb saying.
"During the Emmys, after she was nominated, she didn’t go out to the parties,” he added. “She came right back to the hospital and stayed with me and she stayed on a green plastic bench thing for several days. She’s been great."
Vergara, Rico Rodríguez and their “Modern Family” crew took home the Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy Series.”
This is the second year that the cast has dominated the best comedy category.
Loeb’s press conference comes just as Vergara’s new movie “Happy Feet Two” is set to hit theaters on Friday.
In the film, Vergara does the voice for Carmen, a sensual penguin with a strong personality.
Oh yeah, and Loeb, he's a businessman and grandson of one of the Lehman Brothers.
