Sofia Vergara is currently caught in a nasty battle with ex Nick Loeb over frozen embryos the couple made during their relationship. But that drama hasn't stalled her plans to start a family with fiancé Joe Manganiello: RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the 42-year-old Modern Family actress has been undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments in the hopes of having a child with the True Blood hunk.
Despite how her last round of IVF with Loeb ended in heartache, the source insisted, "This is a totally different and much healthier relationship than what she had with Nick. Sofia and Joe are equals, and Joe doesn't ever ask anything from her, whereas Nick was always trying to promote products using Sofia. Joe is extremely attentive and loving to Sofia."

"Sofia is very secure and comfortable with Joe. It's just easy. They hope to have a child together, but will adopt if IVF doesn't work. Their baby will be loved, and they are excited to start a family," the source said.
For now, "Sofia will let the legal battle with Nick play out in court," the source said. "She has a great lawyer, and knows everything will work out for the best. She is looking forward, and not back."
