Is Sofia Vergara planning on having a baby?

The Modern Family actress recently split from her fiance, Nick Loeb, but according to a new report, she wants to have a baby with or without him. Radar Online reports that the actress really wants to become a mom again (her son, Manolo, is 21) and she has already taken steps to do so.

"Sofia already took fertility injections and had her eggs frozen in preparation. When Manolo was born, she was too young and scared to relax and enjoy being a mom. Now she's mature and successful enough to really appreciate the experience. Sofia has a very close friend who knew how much she wanted to be a second-time mom, so she's volunteered to carry the child."

Sofia released the following statement on her WhoSay page after her split:

"Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have decided to be apart. We have been having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and because of my work and now his, it's been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore. We are still very close but we believe it's the best thing for us right now."

Sofia Vergara wouldn't be the first celebrity to have children via a surrogate. Many decide that they want to wait a while to have kids and so they do just what Vergara did. There is always hope -- a chance for new beginnings -- and Vergara still has hope. Do you think she will have another baby post-Nick Loeb?
