New court documents released in the battle over frozen embryos created by actress Sofia Vergara and her businessman ex-fiance Nick Loeb reveal that the reproductive center is on the actress' side.
The papers obtained exclusively by InTouch Weekly show that the facility where the former couple froze the two female embryos is asking the court to drop the case and get Loeb to pay for their attorney's fees.

Loeb, 40, is trying to stop the Modern Family star from destroying the embryos, created through in vitro fertilization before the couple's breakup in 2014, an insider previously revealed to InTouch.
"Nick is committed to saving and bringing these embryos to term via surrogate. He’s going to see this thing through until the end," the source said. "Sofia is devastated. She’s just praying that her legal team finds a way to persuade the judge that this can’t go through without her blessing.”
ART Reproductive Center in Beverly Hills, where Vergara and Loeb went through with the procedure and were storing the cryopreserved embryos, says the law is on their side in the case and Loeb signed waivers clearly stating that nothing can be done with the embryos without both of their consent.
Vergara, 43, married Joe Manganiello on November 22. The last thing she wants is for her ex to go through with having her babies now.
Vergara tried twice to get the court to dismiss the case, but her motions were denied. She is "terrified" of going to trial, the insider said.

If Loeb's claims against Vergara and the center are dismissed, the ultimate fate of the two embryos isn't clear.
