Sofia Vergara will ''always care'' about her ex-fiancé.

The 'Modern Family' beauty, who is now dating 'Magic Mike' star Joe Manganiello, is reportedly still close friends with Nick Loeb, following their split in May.

A source close to the former couple, who were spotted catching up in New York City last month, told America's OK!: ''Sofia was in New York for a scheduled appearance on 'Live! With Kelly and Michael,' and Nick happened to be in town as well, which is rare. She had some free time, so they decided to say hello and catch up.''

The duo's break-up was rumoured to have been very bitter, but the insider said: ''The fact is, it was a bicoastal relationship between two very busy people. The scheduling became to challenging to make it work. But Sofia will always care for Nick.''

The 39-year-old businessman recently insisted he wished the actress ''the best''.

He said: ''The relationship didn't work, but we both went ahead. People should not believe every rumour, we are still good friends.

''She is a very special woman and she deserves all the best.''
