Sofia Vergara and fiance Nick Loeb split

Sofia Vergara and her fiance, Nick Loeb, have decided to call it quits.

The "Modern Family" star announced their split in a message posted to her WhoSay page over the weekend.

"Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have [decided] to be apart," she wrote. "We have [been] having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together because of my work and now his, it's been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore."

She added, "We are still very close but we believe [this] is the best thing for us right now."

Vergara, 41, confirmed in April 2012 that she and Loeb were engaged. Already a mother to son Manolo, Vergara revealed last year that she was hoping to expand her family with her businessman fiance.

"Hormone pills, and then after that is hormone injections," the 40-year-old actress told Vogue magazine of freezing her eggs. "They want to get as many eggs as they can because usually you produce them but they're not good. They have to be perfect, perfect, perfect ones."
