Sofia Vergara is planning ahead. The engaged actress, who hopes to expand her family with fiance Nick Loeb, recently revealed that she froze her eggs.
“I’m 40-years-old now,” Vergara told Dr. Oz. “Things don’t happen naturally anymore so I’ve been very concerned about fertility and I wanted to take advantage of science.”
Vergara isn’t the only one. Celebs like Kim Kardashian, Janet Jackson and Jennifer Aniston have also reportedly considered putting their eggs on ice.
