‘Modern Family’: A look back at Gloria Delgado-Pritchett

Sofía Vergara premiered as the Columbian firecracker, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, on Modern Family in 2009. The show was a hit, and Gloria quickly became a fan-favorite character.

Gloria gained a plethora of experiences as a single mother living in Columbia and continued to take on new challenges after moving to the United States and marrying Jay. The character keeps getting more interesting right up to the very end. Hot sauce chef, mover, and real estate professional are just a few of Gloria’s skills that we’ve seen on the show.

Over the years, Gloria has let slip a few details about her colorful — dare we say checkered — past before joining the Pritchett-Dunphy clan. While Gloria’s formative years and young adulthood are still a bit of a mystery, the actress who plays her has given fans a glimpse of her younger self.

Vergara’s totally tubular throwback pics hint that there’s real value in remembering your roots. In a series of snapshots from the 1980s, the adolescent future-star is shown posing with her posse. Her caption reads: “Finding pictures from the ‘80’s in Barranquilla [Columbia] with my girlfriends!!”

Based on the comments, fans seem to be loving the ‘80s vibe. One fan commented, “Is that you, Sofia posing in the leopard? Too cute!”

Another fan said, “You haven’t changed one bit Sofia.”

In a separate post, Vergara shared a set of snaps from the 1990s with the caption, “Senior year. Seniors 90’ Barranquilla.” Her Instagram followers posted comments of adoration like this one: “Oh my God, you are the prettiest and most gorgeous.”

Vergara has also shared plenty of memories from the set of Modern Family, but with the show wrapping up, images she has posted from her new gig have caught our attention. In a recent post, Vergara revealed photos from the set of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, where she will serve as a judge. Vergara’s latest Instagram shares from the 80s, the 90s, and today hint that it is cool to look back, even while moving forward.

Leaving ‘Modern Family’ behind

On April 8, after 11 seasons on ABC, Modern Family will say goodbye. The cast and crew will look back at some of the show’s highlights in A Modern Farewell, a documentary-style special reflecting on the show. Then, the Modern Family series finale will signal the end of an era.

As we inch closer to the finale, a sense of sentimentality has started to creep in. Social media has been buzzing with heartfelt posts from the Modern Family cast and the fans of the show. And perhaps that nostalgia has taken on a life of its own, considering Vergara’s recent glimpse into her past that she shared on Instagram.

A Modern Farewell airs on Wednesday, April 8 at 8 p.m., followed by the Modern Family series finale at 9 p.m. on ABC. Fans can relive the series by streaming anytime on Hulu. America’s Got Talent Season 15 is scheduled to premiere this summer on NBC.
