Sofia Vergara's ex-fiance has broken his silence about the couple's split, revealing she didn't want to have kids and he did.

The actress, who is mum to 22 year old Manolo, and businessman Nick Loeb called off their engagement earlier this year (14) after she made it clear to him that she didn't want to become a mum again.

Loeb tells In Touch magazine he understood and accepted his former girlfriend's decision, insisting they're still good friends.

Loeb says, "We had different things we wanted to do with our lives. She’s focused on her career. The most important thing for me is to get married and have kids. That wasn’t her focus.

"I completely understood. She’s at the height of her career, and, as she says all the time, she’s taking advantage of her 15 minutes of fame because who knows how long that will last."
