Who is Gloria Delgado-Pritchett?
Gloria Pritchett, (née Delgado), is Jay's wife and Manny's mother. She is a Colombian native from a small village, which also happens to be the murder capital of the country. She is much younger than Jay which does not matter to her; she is a very loving wife and mother despite the age difference between her and her husband. Her voluptuous figure and overall beauty is often remarked or noticed by other characters on the show. One of her most distinctive traits is her very thick Colombian accent, which sometimes leads her to mispronounce English words, such as "ultimatum" as "old-tomato" and "earrings" as "hair-rings". She often supports Manny when Jay tries to tell him to be less sensitive or hide his cultural background. She is a horrible driver, though she is oblivious to this. She is also very comfortable with death (on one occasion killing a rat with a shovel right before she left for church), on account of a couple of her relatives being butchers. She claims that, because she is from Colombia, the "murder capital of the world", she can instantly spot a fake crime scene, and tends to view murders as common occurrences, even claiming that the judge who presided over her marriage to her ex-husband Javier was assassinated during the ceremony. She has a very high tolerance for spicy food, and has perhaps the strongest religious views of any member of the family.
Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara (born July 10, 1972) is a Colombian actress, television host, model, and entrepreneur. She had been widely known for co-hosting two TV shows for Univisión in the late 1990s. Her TV career opened up for her a window of exposure to North American audiences prior to her first notable acting job in English, the 2003 film Chasing Papi. Subsequently, she appeared in films, including two Tyler Perry films, Meet the Browns (2008) and Madea Goes to Jail (2009), receiving an ALMA Award nomination for the latter.
Sofia currently stars on the critically acclaimed ABC series Modern Family as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.
" I thought one of the advantages of marrying an older guy would be that I would get to relax. But with the swimming and running and rowing... it's how some of my relatives came to this country."
"I'm a great chess player, but I'm a better wife."
