Sofia Vergara's Birthday Pictures Show Star's 'Big' Celebration (PHOTOS)


Fireworks lit up the Mexican sky as Sofía Vergara and 108 of her closest friends celebrated her 40th birthday on a private island last year. This time around, however, the Colombian star kept it a little more simple to say the least.
