Sofia Vergara, 48, looks youthful in a sweatshirt and ripped jeans while stopping at a gourmet grocery store in Los Angeles
Sofia Vergara has been at war with her ex-fiance Nick Loeb over frozen embryos from the now defunct relationship since 2017.
Though the legal battle continues to wage on this month, the 48-year-old Modern Family star took a breather from it all as she hit up gourmet grocery store Eataly in Los Angeles.
Looking stylish for a very exciting culinary jaunt, Vergara dressed up her laidback look with wedges and a pink face mask.

The Colombian born beauty made her way in the parking structure in ripped jeans and a stylishly distressed crew neck.
She added height to her already statuesque figure in cork soled wedges, carrying a black designer handbag.
While walking from her vehicle she secured a pink face covering over her rouge colored lips, which matched her manicure.
She made her way out of the store with a shopping bag of goodies, before heading home.

Vergara is currently gearing up for a new season of the hit show America’s Got Talent, with final casting calls about to take place virtually.
She admitted last week that she missed her Modern Family cast, as she reminisced over the her 11-year role on the longstanding sitcom which ended this time last year.
Despite some exciting career opportunities, Vergara has been struggling to finalize aspects of the relationship with her ex-fiance, in what is proving to be a painful part of her life.

She and Loeb called off their engagement of two years in 2014, but they have been fighting for custody over frozen embryos from a 2013 IVF treatment.
In 2017 Vergara filed a lawsuit against him in California, seeking ‘a permanent injunction to prevent Mr. Loeb from bringing the pre-embryos to term without Ms. Vergara’s express written consent,’ per the documents.
Loeb then tried to bring the case to the state of Louisiana in 2018 — where he alleged he took up residence — in an effort to have the state recognize the unborn embryos rights.
The case bounced around but was eventually dismissed ‘with prejudice’ in October 2019, though Loeb and his lawyers appealed the court’s decision on the basis that the embryos ‘are human beings’ and have a ‘right to be born.’
At the end of January he lost the appeal and the court ruled that he made a ‘mockery of the Louisiana legal system.’

They ruled that he and his lawyer ‘engaged in forum shopping,’ by filing the suit in a state where he was never a resident.
This month Vergara is hoping to bed it all, filing to ask a Louisiana court to remove his lawyer’s (Jalesia McQueen) ability to practice in the state, after knowingly making ‘false statements’ about her client’s non-existent residential ties.
Despite the negativity from her past, Vergara has been happily married to Magic Mike actor Joe Manganiello, 44, since 2015.
She had said in a 2016 interview that she would be open to more kids (she has one from a previous marriage and he has none) but cited her age as a factor.
‘I wouldn’t mind another child. The idea of doing it all again doesn’t scare me. But, hey, it’s not like it’s going to happen naturally, is it?,’ she said.
