Although work is important, Vergara cherishes her loved ones. The Modern Family star told Entertainment Tonight she makes an effort to balance work and family. “I think the important thing that I have learned [about balancing work and family] is that you have to learn how to delegate. You can’t do everything yourself,” she said. “You have to surround yourself with people you know can help you. To pay someone’s salary, it’s an investment so you can do more things, so you can trust people to help you do all the things you want.”
