Sofia Vergara and her fiancé, Nick Loeb, are getting ready to have a baby via a close pal who’s acting as a surrogate mother and suffered a recent scare when the woman was rushed to the hospital with fears she'd miscarried.
“Sofia’s surrogate had developed pain and went to the hospital, fearing that she was going to have a miscarriage,” a source told The Enquirer of the Feb. 22 incident. “Sofia thanked God that everything was OK.
“After several hours, it was determined that the baby was fine, and so was the surrogate mom.”
Sofia hand-picked the surrogate mom, the magazine reported, because she's "one of her healthiest and closest friends."
Loeb, who's been dating the Colombian beauty for three years had long pressured Vergara to have children with him, and “after much soul searching,” she finally gave in to his request, according to The Enquirer.
The source told The Enquirer that Loeb, 37, "has been on edge throughout the whole process.
"He’s hot-headed and becoming a dad is testing him.
"But Sofia would not have gone through all this if she wasn’t sure of her love and desire to marry Nick,” the source told the magazine. “Now, the only question is whether her wedding will come first -- or the baby.”
