Finally, a plot twist Modern Family fans can get behind.
During the most recent episode of Modern Family, which aired on Wednesday night in the United States, viewers of the long-running sitcom discovered they would be welcoming a new generation of the Dunphy family.
Haley Dunphy (played by Sarah Hyland) found out she was pregnant during a visit to the emergency room after being hit by a bumper car driven by boyfriend Dylan and getting a lipstick stuck up her nose.
The pregnancy sets up another plot twist in coming episodes, with it unknown whether Dylan or Haley’s other love interest Arvin is the father.
Hyland teased her character’s pregnancy on her social media accounts, writing on Instagram that the episode was going to be a “BUMPY ride” and tweeting: “Ooooooo BABY I’m excited!”
The unexpected plot twist was received much more warmly on Twitter then the last Modern Family surprise.
Last month, underwhelmed viewers took to social media to vent their frustrations when a much-hyped ”significant” character death turned out to be Delia ‘DeDe’ Pritchett — Jay Pritchett’s ex-wife and Claire Dunphy and Mitchell Pritchett’s mum.
The twist infuriated fans with fans left either confused by who DeDe was — she had only appeared on seven episodes of Modern Family — or furious that the minor character’s death had been hyped for months.
