The Word: Is Sofia Vergara hiring a surrogate?
In June’s Cosmopolitan, Sofia Vergara chats about plans for possibly starting a family with fiance Nick Loeb. Rumors have been swirling that the “Modern Family” actress and Loeb are hiring a surrogate. But Vergara says that rumor stems from the fact she froze her eggs. “I had to go to my doctor’s office a hundred million times to do injections. The [rumor] probably came from that,” the 40-year-old says. “My doctor had told me ‘We have a small window.’ I said, ‘That’s so rude!’ I already have a kid, so I never thought I would need to do that. But I will have to use a surrogate, because I had thyroid cancer and lots of radiation. I don’t want to wait forever, but not yet, because I’m working like an animal.”
Vergara knows now is the time to work her butt off. “I’ve never had a plan for anything. I know I’m not going to get any more shows like Modern Family. If it ends in five years, it would be great to do movies and focus on things like my Kmart line. Maybe have a kid. But I am going to be working my whole life. I love making money. I really love it!”
But even though a baby might be on the horizon, a giant wedding for the two divorcees definitely isn’t. “He was already married with a big wedding and I was already married with a big wedding, so we’re going to something but not right now,” she says. “When he proposed, it was my birthday, and I’d flown more than 100 family and friends to Mexico for six days of partying. It took me forever to arrange the logistics! If I had known I was going to get engaged, I don’t do this stupid birthday.”
