The battle over Sofia Vergara's embryos took a strange turn in court this week when a "right-to-live" lawsuit was filed on behalf of the fertilised eggs.
The female embryos listed as plaintiffs "Emma" and "Isabella" in the court papers are part of a lawsuit that contends that by not being born, they have been deprived of an inheritance from a trust created for them.
Sofia's former fiance Nick Loeb is already suing the actress over the custody of the embryos which they created in 2013.
The new lawsuit asks that the frozen embryos be given to Nick and inserted in a surrogate so they can receive the trust set up for them.
It also contended that a former agreement between Nick and Sofia saying neither party could use the embryos without the consent of the other should be voided.pt
Sofia is now married to husband Joe Manginello and wants the embryos kept frozen.
