My mom's engaged! Sofia Vergara's son shares video of the moment Nick Loeb popped the question
08:48 GMT, 2 August 2012
When Sofia Vergara celebrated her 40th birthday in Mexico last month, her son Manolo Gonzalez was there to catch the festive occasion on video.
And the Modern Family star's 19-year-old son managed to capture the moment his mother agreed to marry her longterm love Nick Loeb.
In the video, which he has just posted online,
Vergara is joined by more than 100 members of
her family and friends as they explored the Mayan ruins in Chichen Itza.

The rock: Sofia flashed this sparkler to friends and family at the bottom of the pyramid
Vergara is seen climbing a pyramid with Loeb, her boyfriend of more than two years.
Soon after, the couple descends the stairs holding hands – and Sofia is wearing a large diamond ring.
In his video commentary, Manolo
says: 'Once they were to the top of the pyramid, my mother's longtime
boyfriend, Nick, proposed to her.'
Quite a surprise: The 40-year-old bombshell certainly didn't look like she was expecting the proposal
'Let me see the ring,' Gonzalez says,
as Vergara smiles and shows off the diamonds on her ring finger – but
does not admit she's actually engaged.
The video appears to confirm rumours
of the engagement, which first surfaced last month after the actress was
photographed wearing the sparkler after her Mexico trip.
Manolo was shooting the celebrations
for his mockumentary YouTube series, Mi Vida Con Toty (which translates
to My Life With Toty, Vergara's nickname).
The Modern Family actress wasn't afraid to parade her new sparkler
before the camera at a lunch following her pyramid climb with Nick.

The next stop for Vergara's birthday was a festive lunch party, complete with a mariachi band.
Vergara sips on cocktails while mingling with the large group of friends and family, and waves her huge new rock in a cheeky gesture for the camera.
Vergara's representative would no confirm the engagement, but a source told PEOPLE magazine that the Modern Family actress's ring was just an over-the-top birthday gift.
“It was a gift from Nick. It's a beautiful gift and a special ring but never meant to be anything more than that,” the source says.
Reconciled: Sofia and Nick got back together last month after splitting in May this year
The pair got back together last month after splitting up in May.
The reconciliation comes after a recent break-up around the time that reports surfaced in the National Enquirer that the wealthy businessman was a 'sex addict who indulges
in multiple-partner cocaine-fuelled orgies'.
Sofia, meanwhile, is back filming the new season of Modern Family this week, and has been posting photos regularly from set to her Twitter account.
