As Nick Loeb battles to protect the frozen embryos he created with Sofia Vergara, another piece to the puzzle reveals that the Vergara had allegedly "insisted" that their 44-year-old assistant serve as a surrogate for their would-be baby.
In August 2014, Loeb filed a complaint against Vergara and the ART Reproductive Center in an effort to preserve the frozen embryos fertilized in 2013.
Now, as an attempt to prevent destruction of the embryos, Loeb has alleged that Vergara insisted her "44-year-old friend and employee" serve as surrogate despite "Loeb's objections as well as the recommendations of the parties' doctor."
Loeb claims that Vergara spent $200,000 in mortgage payments and gifts for the employee, though her lawyer advised otherwise.
A source told PageSix: "Sofía insisted on it. She said the assistant was the only person she could trust."
After implantation efforts failed to take, Loeb says Vergara finally became willing to look into surrogate agencies. But plans came to a halt when the couple broke up soon after.
According to reports, Loeb hopes to raise the children himself, and has promised that they will "be very well taken care of" and she "would have no parental responsibility."
But another source claims that Vergara and Loeb "both decided, months ago, that the embryos would stay where they are. That is what they agreed upon. This is all nonsense of him trying to get attention during a big moment for her."
