In celebration of Sofia Vergara's birthday, we've updated our list of "Reasons Why We Love Gloria" a few extra entries that justify our love for Modern Family's fiercest member. What are your favorite Gloria moments? Post your comments at the bottom of the page!
15. She doesn't get starstruck
When Gloria meets Billy Dee Williams, she's as smooth as he is! Not everyone can meet Lando Calrissian from the Star Wars movies and keep their cool.
14. She knows what she likes
...And that's Jay, whose gruff and curmudgeonly charms win her over every time.
13. She's the envy of all moms
Well, maybe not Claire.
12. She values family
It's not easy joining someone else's family, but Gloria will welcome you with open arms. Eventually.
11. She's a fierce competitor
She's not the best Pictionary partner, but she's game for anything.
10. She’s not afraid to get down and dirty
Gloria won’t hesitate to get on all fours if it means getting her way.
9. Her passion resonates with everyone around her
Especially in their eardrums.
8. She’s a mean, lean killing machine
Slightly disturbing, but we won’t complain if she wants to decapitate pesky rats.
7. It doesn’t bug us when she’s grammatically incorrect
While most grammar mistakes drive us crazy, it only makes Gloria more endearing.
6. She forces her children to party against their will
Whoever heard of a mom reprimanding their kids to enjoy the party?
5. She knows cooking is the way to a man’s heart
The food is good and the preparation is even better.
4. We don’t know what she’s saying half the time
And it’s still funny.
3. She can shake what her mama gave her
Thankfully, Gloria keeps her Colombian dancing traditions alive in California.
2. She doesn’t need a man to protect her
Only a loaded gun.
