Cape Town – Sofia Vergara is reportedly being sued on behalf of her frozen embryos.

There has been an ongoing battle between Vergara and her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb, who filed a lawsuit in August 2014 seeking to take two frozen embryos the couple created before separating.

Now, according to Page Six, a right-to-live lawsuit was filed on behalf of the fertilized eggs in Louisiana.

The plaintiffs are reportedly listed as two females named Emma and Isabella. James Carbonnet is listed as the embryos’ trustee.

The lawsuit claims that by not being given the right to live, the embryos are being deprived of inheriting a trust that Loeb created for them. It also states that Loeb should be given full custody of the embryos and that all Vergara’s parental rights be removed.

It comes as no surprise that the lawsuit was filed in Louisiana as the state is known to be pro-life and offers special legal protection of frozen embryos.

While Loeb spends his time moving between New York and Florida, he is still very much involved with Louisiana. 

The Daily Mail reported Loeb graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans and is still a reserve police officer in the state.
