Sofia Vergara's Ex Nick Loeb Pens Intense Op-Ed About Their Frozen Embryos: Keeping Them Frozen is 'Killing Them'

Nick Loeb has written an op-ed piece in the New York Times detailing his court case, his beliefs about the frozen embryos he created with ex fiancee Sofia Vergara, and their relationship together.

The 39-year-old businessman also goes into detail about his reason for splitting with the 42-year-old Modern Family star.

“In my view, keeping them frozen forever is tantamount to killing them,” Nick writes in the op-ed. “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.”

“Many have asked me: 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,” Nick continues.

Sofia Vergara's Ex Nick Loeb Releases Statement On Frozen Embryo Battle

Sofia Vergara‘s ex fiance Nick Loeb is defending his lawsuit to prevent her from destroying their two frozen embryos!

“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.

Sofia Vergara Responds to Ex-Fiance Nick Loeb's Frozen Embryos Claims

Sofia Vergara has shut down rumors that she wanted to get rid of frozen embryos she created with ex-fiance Nick Loeb!

“The claims made against Sofia Vergara by Nick Loeb are uncredible and hold no merit,” the 42-year-old actress’ lawyer Fred Silberberg shared to People. “Vergara has never wanted to destroy her embryos.”

He added, “Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed. She has always maintained that they be kept frozen, a fact of which Loeb and his counsel have always been aware, despite Loeb‘s statements to the contrary. Vergara, who has happily moved on with her life, is content to leave the embryos frozen indefinitely as she has no desire to have children with her ex, which should be understandable given the circumstances.”
