Sofia Vergara’s Ex Is Taking Her to Court Over Her Embryos

Anything is up for grabs after a bad breakup.

Sofia Vergara’s ex-fiancé Nick Loeb is suing her to ensure she can’t destroy embryos the two conceived while still together. The female embryos, which were made with his sperm and her eggs, were made and preserved while the two were engaged. After breaking up (Vergara is now engaged to Joe Manganiello and allegedly undergoing IVF with him) Loeb filed a lawsuit to protect the embryos.

According to court docs, this is because he’s deeply “pro-life” and believes life begins at conception, but The Gossip Table posits a darker possibility: that this is his way of staying in his famous ex’s life. Either way, this is one ugly egg situation.
