Sofía Vergara Is Only 14 Years Old in These Fabulous Instagram Throwbacks

If you follow Sofía Vergara on Instagram, then you're probably well aware that the Modern Family alum loves to shares throwbacks from her past. From beachside modeling shoots to Pepsi commercials, the 50-year-old star has no shortage of time capsule content in her back pocket. Yet, her latest post is one that can't be missed, because we've never seen Vergara quite like this.

Early yesterday, the America's Got Talent judge decided to dust off a pair of photos that were taken in her home city of Barranquilla, Colombia, and according to her caption, she was only 14 years old when these pics were taken.

“#tbt Barranquilla the 80’s,” Vergara wrote in the caption, along with a palm tree emoji. She also added a hashtag that said, “#14yrsold,” along with a heart emoji.

In the first photo, teenage Vergara is seen posing in what appears to be a lime green, one-piece swimsuit, with hot pink laces tying up the bust. She rocks long, dirty blonde locks, with bangs in the front, and she appears to be looking at something off camera. While the location is unclear, it looks as if she's standing in the doorway of someone's house (her childhood home, perhaps?). Behind her, we see a painting of sunflowers on the wall.

The second photo is a close-up shot of Vergara's face, where her profile fills the entire frame, and we see that she accessorized with a pair of small, golden hoop earrings.

Vergara has been on a throwback kick lately. Just last week, she shared a modeling shot, where she wore a green-and-yellow, two-tone bikini, with a sheer wrap draped over her arms. “Summer #tb,” she said in the caption.

We loved this rare glimpse of teenage Sofía.
