Actress Sofia Vergara’s ex Nick Loeb says he is committed to bringing their two frozen embryos to life after the “Modern Family” star slammed his lawsuit that alleged that she refused to preserve them.
Loeb, 39, in a statement, said he has always dreamed of being a father, reported Aceshowbiz.
“I have always strongly believed that life begins at fertilisation and that every embryo is a life on the journey towards birth. I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father.”
“I have previously offered to waive any parental or financial responsibilities or obligations on the part of my ex, and to even give her the opportunity to be involved with the child in the future, should she change her mind. I take the responsibility and obligation of being a parent very seriously.”
Lobe said if a man wants to become a father, he should have that right. “Where a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right. However life comes to be created, it should have no determination on either the rights of wanting to be or the requirements of having to be a parent.” His lawyer said that his client “made every effort to arrive at a private resolution of this very personal matter” and that “when the egg donor refused to even agree to preserve the embryos under all circumstances, he was forced to file this anonymous lawsuit, which has unfortunately now become public.”
