"Gloria's pregnancy has repercussions throughout the family," reveals Modern Family executive producer Christopher Lloyd of the surprise bun in the oven. "Jay [Ed O'Neill, right] is unnerved about being a dad again and briefly sees a therapist; Gloria [Sofia Vergara, center] is in a bit of denial and refuses to stop wearing her usual clothes; and Manny is concerned the parenting duties will fall to him."

As for the growing baby bump, revealed in the ABC hit's September 26 premiere, "Phil is transfixed by the changes to Gloria's physique," adds Lloyd. "And so is Claire, who secretly delights in it."
