Nick Loeb Says Sofia Vergara is 'Killing' Their Frozen Embryos

Sofia Vergara's ex, Nick Loeb, is defending his battle for custody of the two embryos they created together.

In a New York Times op-ed titled, "Our Frozen Embryos Have a Right to Live," Loeb says he desperately wants to be a father - but Vergara is just focused on her career.

"It became clear that parenthood was much less urgent for her than it was for me. I gave her an ultimatum. When she refused, we split up," he said.
