Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara is involved in a bit of a pickle with her ex-fiance Nick Loeb. When they were engaged, the duo planned to have children together and thus froze some fertilized embryos so that they could utilize the services of a surrogate. When they broke up, one would think that the embryos would be destroyed, but apparently Loeb doesn’t want that to happen – and for other reasons, neither does Vergara.
It’s a completely strange situation. Loeb wants to actually use the embryos in order to become a father – while Vergara doesn’t want them destroyed, but never used to create children. He took her to court in order to get the embryos released so that he could have them as his children, but it appears to be quite the stalemate.
Her lawyer has issued a statement saying that she is “content to leave the embryos frozen indefinitely as she has no desire to have children with her ex. She has always maintained that they be kept frozen, a fact of which Loeb and his counsel have always been aware, despite Loeb’s statements to the contrary.”
Sofia Vergara and True Blood actor Joe Manganiello are engaged and looking to the future with babies on the brain. He definitely wants children and she wants to make him happy. She revealed, “My son, Manolo, is 23-years-old, which is going to be really weird if I have another baby. But, you know, Joe wants babies and if it’s going to make him super happy, then…”
Despite having a four year age difference between them, Vergara says that she is very happy with Manganiello. She added, “There’s nothing about him I’d change other than the fact that he’s four years younger than me.”
Do you find it strange that Nick Loeb is still trying to hold on to this one big piece of his life with Sofia Vergara? Perhaps he should just stop insisting that he get the embryos, because both parties have to agree on their fate – otherwise nothing happens. Thoughts?
