JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Sofia Vergara is paying more attention to what she eats.

The reason behind that, as she told Vogue magazine, is because she's freezing her eggs.

The 40-year-old "Modern Family" star, who's engaged to 37-year old Nick Loeb, said that she's embarked on a process of hormone pills, to be followed by hormone injections.

Forbes named Vergara the highest-paid actress on TV in 20-12.

She already has a 21-year-old son named Manolo.
