The role of Manny Delgado is played by Rico Rodriguez II.
Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez II), Gloria's son from her first marriage, is very outgoing and not the least bit self-conscious. He is very mature and intuitive for his age and is often shown doing adult-like things, such as having conversations with Claire about her marriage and kids, and drinking coffee. He has inherited his mother's passion for life which causes him to be very romantic. His support is mainly channeled through his mother Gloria and almost nonexistent in his stepfather Jay. Manny is not afraid to take chances, leading him to ask out older girls, and develop somewhat of a crush on Haley. He idolizes his absentee father, often speaking about him in a positive light, even after being repeatedly flaked on. He plays for a soccer team and fences.
