They are now suing the fertility centre along with Anni and Ashot Manukyan, one of the other couples embroiled in the debacle, news.com.au reports.
The Manukyans said they were thankful to the NY woman who gave birth to their son.
The Asian couple, identified in the lawsuit as A.P and Y.Z., say that they first consulted CHA Fertility Center in January 2018, and that a first attempt at in vitro fertilization in July failed.
"I'm eternally grateful to her for carrying my baby and taking care of him even after birth", Anni Manukyan said. "It was heartbreaking. It was awful", Anni Manukyan said.
"Due to the extreme misconduct of CHA Fertility Center, the number of things that went wrong here is just plain staggering", Wolf said on Wednesday announcing the lawsuit.
Their lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, accuses CHA Fertility of medical malpractice, negligence and a bevy of other charges. "You have a son now.' And I just lashed out", Anni said.
The Manukyans, of Glendale, California, endured a court fight before being granted custody of their son, according to the court filing.
The couple said Wednesday that their baby boy was thriving and bonding with the family but Ashot Manukyan said that his family had suffered mentally.
But Dr. Joshua Berger and Simon Hong, co-owners of CHA Fertility Center, allegedly told the couple that the sonogram was "not a definitive test", with Berger reportedly relaying a similar story involving his own wife to the expectant parents, The New York Post reported.

In vitro fertilisation is a series of procedures in which an egg is fertilised in a lab and then transferred to a uterus, according to the Mayo Clinic.
CHA declined to comment after the first lawsuit was filed, and could not be reached for comment on the Manukyans' suit.
The Manukyans told reporters yesterday that they were unaware they had a son until the clinic, located in the Los Angeles area, contacted them out of the blue to obtain their DNA so that it could determine whether the child born to the NY couple was theirs.
The Manukyans, who were married in 2007, said that in March 2011, an embryo transfer had resulted in the birth of their daughter.
The next several weeks were a "non-stop nightmare" as they tried to get more information on their genetic son, the lawsuit states.
The Manukyans said that following a protracted legal battle they finally gained custody of their son in May, when he was six weeks old. "It is clearly one of the worst fertility-center tragedies in USA history". "Nobody should meet their baby in the lobby of a hotel". "It was heartbreaking. It was awful".
"Anni and Ashot did not know of their son's existence until he was almost two weeks old". "We just cried all day because we didn't know if we ever were going to see him".
The "heartbreaking" mix-up over a bungled IVF treatment given to a Queens woman - which led her to give birth to two strangers' babies - was worse than previously known. "I didn't get to feel him kick", Anni said. "She's a wonderful woman and I pray for her every day", she said. "She's a wonderful woman and I pray for her every day, and God will give her own lovely babies one day. Without our knowledge, CHA implanted our embryo into another woman who lived halfway around the world", she added.
CHA Fertility Center on Wilshire Boulevard implanted the couple's embryo through IVF in a woman who gave birth to the two babies in NY, and implanted the Glendale woman with an embryo from a third couple, lawyers from Peiffer Wolf Carr and Kane allege.
