Creators Steve Levitan and Chris Lloyd unleashed a baby bomb on us by the end of the season 3 finale – that Jay and Gloria, not Mitch and Cam, will soon be expecting another little one. But how soon will Gloria’s pregnancy play into episode storylines? Steve Levitan told Entertainment Weekly that, “We will play it continuously. Everyone begins learning about it. There are a number of possibilities!”
Everyone begins learning about it, huh? But as of right now, nobody knows except for Gloria. According to Steve, hardly anybody in the cast and crew even knew about the surprise plot twist they wrote into the finale, telling only a select few of the cast and the affected actors. As for Gloria’s reaction…Steve has a “little story about that”.
“In our mind, we thought she would say it with a bit more trepidation, being scared. But the one we went with was from Sofia Vergara’s first take. It caught us so off guard. I was sitting about five feet from her and I got goosebumps and my eyes welled up. We shot five or six more but we never got anything better than that.”
