Hollywood couple fights over frozen embryos



Popular Hollywood actress, Sofia Vergara, is embroiled in a court battle with her ex-fiance, Nick Loeb, over frozen embryos they made together while they were still together.

Six months before they split, Vergara and her fiance decided to have embryos created from Vergara’s eggs and Nick’s sperm and cryopreserved.

After they went their separate ways, Vergara met another man and moved on. Now, Nick filed a lawsuit to demand that the frozen female embryos not to be destroyed. But Vergara refused to their preservation.

This is like arguing over abortion. Vergara does not want to keep the embryos, her ex wants them preserved. Nick’s desire to keep the embryos is because during his courtship with Vergara, they tried to have children, even using a surrogate, but they failed. According to a source, this may be his only chance to be a father, by preserving the last two female embryos.

“Nick has always wanted to be a father and will do whatever it takes to save these two remaining female embryos. Nick is very emotionally invested in these female embryos because he’s pro-life and believes life begins at conception,” the source commented.

Nick and Vergara’s relationship had been tumultuous as they had broken up and reconciled more than once before their final split and they said it was because they were too busy to concentrate on their relationship. This is how Vergara put it on their final breakup

“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. We have been having too many problems with having to figure out how to spend time together and because of my work and now his, it’s been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore. We are still very close but we believe this is the best thing for us right now.”

The way it is now, they are not that close.
