Sofia Vergara’s ex-fiance Nick Loeb continues his quest for his frozen embryos created with Sofia Vergara. He is defending his lawsuit against Vergara with a Op-Ed in The NYTimes writing that he is a child of divorce and longs for a family.
He has an answer for those who ask him why he hasn’t moved on, ” Why not just move on and have a family of your own? I have every intention of doing so. But that doesn’t mean I should let the two lives I have already created be destroyed or sit in a freezer until the end of time.”
He goes on to say his college girlfriend had an abortion and then he was unsuccessful having children with his ex-wife. He did attempt to have children with ex-Vergara via a surrogate. “The first embryo we implanted didn’t take. The second time, the surrogate miscarried, and I felt crushed.” The couple later created two embryos which are currently frozen and the cause of the lawsuit.
A year later, we tried again, creating two more embryos, both female. But as we began to discuss other potential surrogates, it became clear once more that parenthood was much less urgent for her than it was for me. We had been together for over four years. As I was coming on 40, I gave her an ultimatum. When she refused, we split up.
A few months later, I asked her to let me have the embryos, offering to pay for all expenses to carry our girls to term and raise them. If she did not wish to share custody, I would take on full parenting responsibilities and agree to have her declared an egg donor. She has refused. Her lawyer, Fred Silberberg, has told reporters that she wants to keep the embryos “frozen indefinitely.” In my view, keeping them frozen forever is tantamount to killing them.
I take the responsibility and obligation of being a parent very seriously. This is not just about saving lives; it is also about being pro-parent.
Kinda creepy and just really sad, get over it! Sofia is already with another guy…what’s going on? YOU SIGNED the paperwork…move on!
