In a statement to Us magazine, he says:

“I have always strongly believed that life begins at fertilization and that every embryo is a life on the journey towards birth. I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father.

“I have previously offered to waive any parental or financial responsibilities or obligations on the part of my ex, and to even give her the opportunity to be involved with the child in the future, should she change her mind. I take the responsibility and obligation of being a parent very seriously,” his statement continues. “Creating an embryo in the natural way can lead to parenthood obligations, even where a man doesn’t want to become a father. Where a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right. However life comes to be created, it should have no determination on either the rights of wanting to be or the requirements of having to be a parent.”

For their part, Sofia's camp has said:

"The claims made against Sofia Vergara by Nick Loeb are uncredible and hold no merit,” her attorney 
Fred Silberberg told Us at the time. "Vergara has never wanted to destroy her embryos…and has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed…she has always maintained that they be kept frozen, a fact of which Loeb and his counsel have always been aware, despite Loeb's statements to the contrary.”
