Sofia Vergara: I "Don't Want to Wait Forever" to Have a Baby Via Surrogate With Fiance Nick Loeb
Sofia Vergara has a non-plan plan. The 40-year-old Modern Family actress hopes to have a baby some day with fiance Nick Loeb, but for now, she's leaving it up in the air. In the June issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, Vergara opens up about her career, wedding and baby plans.
"I've never had a plan for anything. I know I'm not going to get any more shows like Modern Family. If it ends in five years, it would be great to do movies and focus on things like my Kmart line," the actress and fashion designer says. "Maybe have a kid. But I am going to be working my whole life. I love making money. I really love it!"
TV's highest-paid actress of 2012 became engaged to entrepreneur Loeb, 37, in July 2012, but the couple isn't in a rush to walk down the aisle. "He was already married with a big wedding and I was already married with a big wedding," she explains, "so we're going to do something but not right now."

In the meantime, however, Vergara is freezing her eggs in the hopes of one day having a baby with Loeb using a surrogate.
"My doctor had told me, 'We have a small window.' I said, 'That's so rude!' I already have a kid, so I never thought I would need to do that," says the mom to son Manolo Gonzalez, 21. "But I will have to use a surrogate, because I had thyroid cancer and lots of radiation. I don't want to wait forever, but not yet, because I'm working like an animal."
Getting even more personal, Vergara also shares with Cosmopolitan whether or not she's high-maintenance in bed.
"No one can be a sex kitten every day, and anyone who tells you that is lying," the Colombian actress says. "But I do wear negligees and Japanese silk robes. For a long time, I lived alone with my son and only saw my boyfriends in a hotel. So at home, I slept in old T-shirts. I realized when I moved in with Nick that I couldn't do that. Now, I only keep nice pajamas around, because whatever is there, I'm going to wear."
