Since announcing her split from fiancé Nick Loeb, Sofia Vergara has been taking it easy – in the Big Easy, no less.

The Modern Family star, 41, wished her fans a happy Memorial Day weekend from New Orleans, sharing sweet snapshots of her family travels on WhoSay.

In another photo she posted over the weekend, Vergara flashes a little skin – hey, nothing keeps this bombshell down!

The actress even made a new friend: an alligator. Showing off pictures from her “swamp day,” Vergara faced her new reptilian companion with her picture-perfect smile.

Vergara announced her split Friday with a screenshot of a note on her WhoSay account.

“Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have [decided] to be apart,” she writes.

“We have [been] having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and [because] of my work and now his, its been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore.”
