sofia vergaraToday is Sofia Vergara's birthday and we would like to wish the star a big super feliz cumpleaños! At 42 years old, Vergara is looking and doing great. I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that the woman can rock a bikini like nobody's business. And speaking of business, she's rockin' her business too. For the third year in a row, Vergara is the highest paid actress on TV. She recently came in at number 54 on Forbes's list of the world's most powerful celebrities, earning 37 million dollars in the past 12 months. Oh, and on their list of most powerful women in the world, she came in at number 34. Not too shabby.

It may seem like she had it all, but let's not forget that it has taken a lot of hard work and a lot of bikini shots to get her where she is today. In honor of her cumple, let's take a walk down memory lane with her and see her transformation over the years.
