Eat your hearts out, men of America: the stunning Sofia Vergara is engaged. The bombshell Colombian actress allegedly said yes to boyfriend Nick Loeb when he popped the question in Mexico on July 9, the eve of her 40th birthday. Since then, the sexy siren has been spotted sporting a sizable diamond sparkler. The on again, off again couple has been dating since 2010, though they only recently reunited after going splitsville for a brief time in May. In honor of the big news, here's a look at a handful of other stars who got found love and got married as fortysomethings.
The gorgeous actress was 42 when she tied the matrimonial knot with French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault on Valentine's Day in 2009. A few months later, the pair played host to a second celebration in the form of a lavish black-tie affair in Italy. Their nuptials followed the birth of daughter Valentina Paloma, now 4 and a regular companion of her pretty mama, who most recently got her bad girl on by playing a Mexican cartel queen in Oliver Stone's "Savages."
The fiery-haired actress, who starred in the recently-finito comedy/drama "Desperate Housewives," made it official with hubby Tom Mahoney when she was 44. Soon after their 2006 wedding, the duo jumped into the baby-making game, with Cross giving birth to twin daughters Eden and Savannah in early 2007. The actress celebrated a big milestone in Vegas earlier this year when she hit the half-century mark. And man, she still looks good!
Okay, so it didn't end well, but at least it provided some seriously great media fodder when 43-year-old Demi Moore got hitched to "That's 70s Show" alum Ashton Kutcher, a dude 16 years her junior, in 2005. The former Mrs. Bruce Willis and the youngster were married for six years before the mom of three called it off in late-2011 amid rumors of her hubby's cheating ways. It's been rough-going for the "Ghost" starlet ever since, with a trip to rehab under her belt and daughters Scout, Tallulah and Rumer allegedly refusing to speak with her until she gets her act together. Oh dear!
