Hyland has had quite the eventful season on the ABC comedy series, as it as revealed in a recent episode that her character, Haley Dunphy, is pregnant with twins.

In a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Hyland opened up about having to wear the pregnancy baby bump while filming the show, revealing it gels like a "really big leotard with a bowling ball in it."

"I feel pregnant when I’m in the belly," she said. "Today at work I went into crafting and I was like, 'Oh, that donut looks really good.' And then I had four donuts. I was like, 'It's fine! I'm eating for three.'"

The latest episode of Modern Family also featured a hilarious misunderstanding for Alex (Winter), as she thought her boyfriend was trying to ask her parents for her hand in marriage.


After freaking out to Claire (Julie Bowen), it is revealed that he was just trying to pitch an investment opportunity to his girlfriend's parents. Though she was disappointed by the turn of events at first, Alex and her beau admitted they weren't ready to get engaged yet, but they might be made for each other.

Modern Family airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
