Sofia Vergara's Ex Nick Loeb Releases Statement On Frozen Embryo Battle
“I have always strongly believed that life begins at fertilization and that every embryo is a life on the journey towards birth. I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father,” the 39-year-old businessman shared in a statement to Us Weekly.
He added, “I have previously offered to waive any parental or financial responsibilities or obligations on the part of my ex, and to even give her the opportunity to be involved with the child in the future, should she change her mind. I take the responsibility and obligation of being a parent very seriously. Creating an embryo in the natural way can lead to parenthood obligations, even where a man doesn’t want to become a father.”
“Where a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right. However life comes to be created, it should have no determination on either the rights of wanting to be or the requirements of having to be a parent,” Nick said.
This statement comes after Sofia‘s lawyer shut down rumors that she wanted to get rid of the embryos they created.
