According to multiple reports, the "Modern Family" star said "yes" to on-and-off-again boyfriend Nick Loeb while vacationing at the posh Rosewood Mayakoba resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico, for Vergara's birthday (she turns 40 today). Loeb is said to have proposed to Vergara on Monday, while the pair were exploring the nearby archaeological ruins of Chichen Itza. The pair then celebrated their engagement news with her sitcom cast mates Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen and Sarah Hyland, who were in Mexico for the occasion.
Hyland alluded to the news via her Twitter page yesterday when she called Vergara "the most wonderful, generous, beautiful woman in the world," while sportscaster Fernando Fiore tweeted a photo that appears to capture Vergara with a new diamond sparkler on her left hand.
Vergara and Loeb, 36, have been dating since 2010, after meeting at a Golden Globes party. Loeb is the son of John Loeb Jr., who served President Reagan as ambassador to Denmark. The couple split briefly in May but were rumored to have reconciled shortly thereafter.
Who's the most wonderful, generous, beautiful woman in the world? Why @SofiaVergara, of course!

Peopleenespanol.com is reporting that Loeb did not pop the question saying, "As of today, Sofia is not engaged." Phone calls to Vergara's rep regarding the actress's engagement news were not returned.
