We were shocked when Gloria (Sofia Vergara) spilled her pregnancy news at the end of the Modern Family Season 3 finale, so imagine how the rest of the cast reacted when they learned about the Colombian beauty's bun in the oven. Speaking to Wetpaint Entertainment at the 2012 Critics' Choice Television Awards, Nolan Gould (Luke) admitted that the writers surprised them all with the end-of-season twist.
Wetpaint Entertainment: Are there any hints can you give me about what’s coming up in the next season of Modern Family?
Nolan Gould: I don’t even know. I’m out of the loop with the writers. I kind of feel betrayed by them because in the season finale none of the cast knew that was coming with the Sofia pregnancy! Actually, they didn’t put it in the script, they wrote it, took one sound guy, one camera guy, one hair & make-up person, and those were the only people that knew about it.
Wait, the entire cast was completely surprised?
I was completely surprised, I was just watching it and then I hear Sofia and I’m like freaking out, I didn’t know what was going on. Then the next day the cast was texting to each other, what’s going on? What’s going to happen? So, we’ll see.
You and Rico Rodriguez are buddies, how did he react to the news that his TV mom had a bun in the oven?
He was really surprised because that is his mom on the show! He was like what’s happening? He’s going to get a little brother or little sister or who know knows what the writers have in store, I don’t. They’re obviously not telling me any more!
