It is not always a good thing to see a familiar face.

Sofia Vergara was all smiles while walking the red carpet at The Angel Ball in New York City on Monday night – until she got a tap on the shoulder from her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb.

Vergara and Loeb announced they were breaking off their engagement in May, but the entrepreneur walked right up to the Modern Family actress while she was in the middle of talking on-camera to Extra about visiting her current boyfriend Joe Manganiello on the set of his new film Magic Mike XXL.

"It was very interesting ... because they were rehearsing the dances," Vergara begins telling Extra before Loeb approaches and whispers something in her ear.

Vergara is visibly caught off guard by Loeb's presence but remains the consummate professional and doesn't miss a beat in continuing to gush about visiting her new man: "It was really great."

"Obviously, she wasn't jubilant and turning around and hugging him," a source tells PEOPLE. "It was more like she brushed him off and just tossed her hair and kept her cool. I wouldn't say she was overly happy [to see him]."

Vergara rushed off the carpet shortly after, but not before mustering up a smile when asked if Manganiello practices his Magic Mike stripper moves on her at home.

"I'm not going to tell you that. Are you crazy?" laughed the actress, who was not spotted conversing with Loeb inside the event. "[But] maybe. Maybe. I'm a good choreographer."
