Sofia Vergara makes move in embryo battle with ex Nick Loeb

Right-to-live lawsuit filed behalf of actress and former fiancé's fertilized eggs

 

Sofia Vergara has filed papers to prevent her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb from bringing the former couple’s two frozen embryos to term.

As Page Six first reported, a suit was filed against Vergara on behalf of the embryos — which were named “Emma” and “Isabella” in the suit — in December.

TMZ reports that, on Tuesday, Vergara responded by filing court documents in LA arguing that any suit is invalid because Loeb already signed paperwork agreeing that he cannot bring the embryos to term without her consent.

The site says that the “Modern Family” actress is seeking a court order quashing Loeb’s suit, as well as money, presumably to compensate her for the legal costs she has racked up during the long debacle.
