Vergara filming "Modern Family" (Splash News)
The 40-year-old "Modern Family" star channels famed comedian Lucille Ball in a new photo posted to her WhoSay page. Vergara is virtually unrecognizable as she recreates a classic Ball look. She has on a curly red wig and polka-dot dress as she hams it up, posing with her mouth slightly open as if she's about to yell, "Ricky!" Her makeup is also spot on, including the overarched eyebrows, and she is wearing a pearl necklace and earrings.
She captioned the photo, "Lucyyyyy, I'm hooome."
Pretty soon we'll be hearing more "Jayyyyy" and "Mannyyyyy" from the actress, who had been hard at work on the set of her ABC family comedy. In the upcoming season, which premieres September 26, Gloria is pregnant. Vergara — who has a college-age son, Manolo — has been seen on the set with a stunt bump. In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter she was asked if she is excited for Gloria to be pregnant in Season 4. "Not really," Vergara laughed. "It's easier when there aren't babies on set. Rico [Rodriguez] and Ed [O'Neill] and I work so fast together; we know one another so well that a baby will change that."

Recently named the top-earning actress on TV, Vergara, who pulled in an estimated $19 million from May 2011 to May 2012, also said she's been surprised by her success. "I never thought I could make money and support my family by being funny," she said.
Meanwhile, things seem to be equally good in her personal life. Vergara and her on-again beau Nick Loeb have been practically inseparable since he popped the question during her 40th-birthday extravaganza in Mexico last month. Recently, they were shopping in Beverly Hills, and Vergara happy flashed her engagement ring. A few days earlier, they enjoyed a romantic dinner at Bagatelle, a French bistro in West Hollywood.
It seems she truly is having a ball.
