Colombian model turned Hollywood bombshell Sofia Vergara turned 52-years-old on Wednesday.

And her 32-year-old son Manolo shared a sweet flashback photo from when he was a young boy to recognize her special day.

‘Happy birthday, Ma! I love you,’ wrote Manolo over the black-and-white image of his mom, who was a bikini model at the time.

She had on a leopard print top with a dark skirt and high heels as she looked to be in her twenties. 

He then joked about why he was so well dressed in a little tuxedo: ‘Went to a kindergarten with a very strict dress code.’

Another post was from her 48-year-old Modern Family costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson who said, ‘I miss you.’

She also received a dozen more happy birthday wishes which she posted to her Insta Stories.

The actress has been doing very well.

She has been starring on America’s Got Talent. Sofia also has a line at Walmart, which recently debuted her swimsuit collection.

And dating Dr Justin Saliman for the past several months.

This comes after Sofia said she doesn’t think it would be ‘fair’ for her to have another baby.

The actress turns 52 in July, and Sofia – who split from Joe Manganiello last year – has revealed that she isn’t interested in having another child.

The Hollywood star – who already has a son with her first husband, Joe Gonzalez – told PEOPLE: ‘There’s things in life that might sound like good ideas, but they’re not.

‘I was a mother already. I know what it means to be a good mother or to try to be the best mother that you can, and that takes a lot of sacrifices, takes a lot of energy.’

The decision not to have another child actually influenced Sofia’s split from Joe, 47.

Despite this, the actress respects anyone who wishes to have a child in their 50s.

She explained: ‘Nowadays, thanks to science, women can actually have babies older. Before, nature for some reason tells your body at 50 you are in menopause, it’s time for you to be done with that. There is a reason why nature is doing that.

‘But that’s for me, and I totally respect where anyone wants to be a mom after 50.

‘I didn’t think because of my career, the way I live my life, the way my marriage was, that it was fair to bring a kid to this world, and I’m not going to be able to give 100 percent.’

Sofia is also glad that she had her son when she was younger.

The actress shared: ‘It is great that I had him young, because now I’m going to be 52, and he’s 32.

‘I wish I was older sometimes, because I would’ve been more mature, more prepared to be a mother, but that was what I got and what happened. So I just kept going and try not to look back at it, because it is what it is. But it is fun because I kind of grew up together with my son.’
