Could life be imitating art? Just a few months after her Modern Family character welcomed a baby into the fold, Sofia Vergara may be doing the same. Reports have recently surfaced saying that she and fiancée Nick Loeb are expecting via a surrogate.
An anonymous source told The New York Post that Sofia has asked a close friend to carry her and Nick’s child. The baby would biologically be theirs and welcomed into their home immediately after the birth.
Having a surrogate would allow Sofia to work for the next nine months (and maintain her trademark physique). Plus at age 40, she would avoid the dangers of a high-risk pregnancy.
According to The Post, the insemination procedure has already taken place and both Loeb and Vergara are thrilled with the results.
“A baby is something they’ve both wanted for a while, particularly Nick, who has been pushing for it,” the source said. “He is a little uneasy that the surrogate is Sofia’s close friend, but is very excited about becoming a father.”
