Sofia Vergara let slip that she’s freezing her eggs! The actress, at a lunch for an interview with Vogue, apparently said, “I have to be careful what I eat because they’re freezing my eggs!”

Not sure if this was a slip up or totally intentional — but regardless, the cats out of the bag, Sof!

While speaking candidly to the magazine about the entire process, Sofia shared that she’s on, “Hormone pills, and then after that it is hormone injections.” She noted that doctors “want to get as many eggs as they can because usually you produce them but they’re not good. They have to be perfect, perfect, perfect ones.”

The actress apparently told the mag that she decided to freeze her eggs because her fiancé, Nick Loeb , is “37, younger than me, never had kids.” The star of Modern Family is already mom to a 21-year-old son, Manolo, from a previous marriage.

And big brother Manolo can’t wait for a sibling! Vergara told Vogue,“Sometimes he [Manolo] used to scream at me when he was younger: ‘Why can’t you have another baby, so you can stop focusing on me?’” Looks like he finally got his wish!

Regardless of whether or not you agree with Sofia’s decision to freeze her eggs, you’ve got to give her credit for thinking ahead to her future — and planning for a baby just in case she and her partner decide to make that decision together. It might not be a decision that everyone agrees with, but it sounds like it works for Sofia and Nick.

Do you consider freezing your eggs?
