Next week, ABC will bring Modern Family back for more Pritchett (and Dunphy) family antics! The cast photo for Season 4 has the whole family camped out in a waiting room, and one of the characters is looking very pregnant! Check it out ahead!
When Season 3 left off, it was revealed that Gloria (Sofia Vergara) was pregnant. The cast photo below, which has the Pritchetts in a family therapy waiting room, shows Gloria looking pretty far along…
It's likely that her baby bump is just there to emphasize one of the arcs we should be expecting this season, and not an indication that the series will return with Gloria much closer to her due date than she was at the end of Season 3. From the episode photo below, which has her chatting with Dylan (Reid Ewing), you can't even tell she's pregnant.
Just a random theory based on the above photo: what if Dylan knows?! He's not the brightest bulb in the room, but I could see him picking up on some strange behavior that might lead him to astutely guess Gloria's condition. We'll have to wait and see. What we do know is that season premiere is titled "Bringing Up Baby," and it'll have Gloria trying to figure out how to break the news of her pregnancy to Jay. It also happens to be Jay's birthday. The focus Jay's birthday will likely put an emphasis on his age. Jay may be married to a younger woman, but he's well within his grandpa years, so something tells me he won't be expecting this. We definitely won't want to miss the reaction, and I can see the show having a lot of fun focusing on Jay dealing with being a father again.
Modern Family returns for Season 4 on Wednesday, September 26 at 9:00 p.m. on ABC.
