Watch: What Are Sofia Vergara's Mother's Day Plans?

Sofia Vergara never worries about having too many cooks in the kitchen.

It's not that the Modern Family star can't take the heat—it's just that she already has a 21-year-old guy whipping up some yummy meals back at home. But since fiancé Nick Loeb is 38, you might be asking: Who's the one stirring the pot?

Sofia's only child, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara, that's who! "My son cooks," the 41-year-old actress told E! News Tuesday at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her upcoming movie Chef. She also made sure to clarify, "I don't cook!"

But Sofia and Manolo "bond by eating, definitely," she said. "It's like the one activity we always do!'

One thing the actress's son doesn't always like about spending time with his mom, though, is when strangers mistake her for his girlfriend! "He gets so mad!" mama Vergara said laughingly on Chelsea Lately last year, adding, "He hates it, but I love it!"

So, will Manolo get some payback for Mother's Day this year, or will he stick to the sweet son script? Watch the video above to hear what Sofia says about their plans for the holiday!
