Sofia Vergara had a son when she was super young – still a teenager, in fact. He’s all grown up now, and Sofia has always thought she might like to have some more kids one day. She’s always said she wouldn’t need a man to do it and would happily have a baby all on her own via a surrogate, but apparently, when she was with her ex-fiance Nick Loeb, they froze some embryos together for future use. That use will never happen now, of course, since they’re not together anymore, so Sofia wants them destroyed. Nick, however, is suing her for the right to keep them frozen since he’s a pro-lifer and think they’re living human beings. Uh…
From In Touch:
Court documents obtained exclusively by ‘In Touch’ reveal that just six months before their split, in November 2013, Nick and Sofía had embryos created as a result of his sperm and her eggs being fertilized.
Nick, who filed the suit under the pseudonym John Doe, “seeks to ensure that the Female Embryos are not destroyed, but Jane Doe [Sofía] refuses to agree to their preservation under all circumstances,” the document obtained by ‘In Touch’ states. (The lawsuit was originally filed in August 2014; it was amended with new information and refiled on April 1 after Nick sought new representation.)
The court papers also claim the 42-year-old actress “was physically and mentally abusive” to Nick on numerous occasions. “She punched him in the face on two occasions, kicked him, and threw her phone at his head. She also routinely bullied him, calling him a ‘loser,’ ‘worthless’ and other degrading names,” according to the papers.
‘In Touch’ has also learned, via the documents, the couple previously used a surrogate and twice unsuccessfully had their embryo implanted in her. “Nick has always wanted to be a father and will do whatever it takes to save these two remaining female embryos,” an insider close to the situation tells ‘In Touch.’ “Nick is very emotionally invested in these female embryos because he’s pro-life and believes life begins at conception.”
Yikes. First of all… I won’t even get into the ridiculousness of his “life begins at conception” nonsense when talking about cells in a labratory’s freezer. Like, here’s all I can say to that:
With that out of the way, let’s talk about the fact that he thinks he has a right to use cells (or even to own them) when it was her egg that fertilized them. Sorry, bro, both parties would need to consent to having a child together for that to be in any way legal. Dudes don’t run out of sperm, so I’m sure he can impregnate his new lady when the time comes. Destroy ‘em!
