'Modern Family's' Julie Bowen on the 'crazy, drunken people' in her home

“Modern Family’s” Julie Bowen has three kids on- and off-screen, so she knows what she’s talking about when she says, “Children are like crazy, drunken people in your house.”

Bowen, who plays Claire Dunphy, on the ABC sitcom, chatted with More about her three kids with husband Scott Phillips – Oliver, 4, and 2-year-old twins Gustav and John.

“I did not want twins as a second go-around,” she told the magazine. “I should have been much more cautious. I should have had . . . half sex?”

Bowen added that, when people found out she had two on the way, they assumed she’d turned to in vitro fertilization, which wasn’t the case.

“Everybody asked me, ‘How many did you put in?’ And I’d be like, ‘Just one penis. Thanks!’ ” she said.

And Bowen’s pregnancy didn’t just result in her baby boys. It also spawned a “Modern Family” drinking game for her family to enjoy. Because her pregnancy wasn’t written in to the show, producers were forced to hide Bowen’s baby bump behind props and doorways.

“Every time you realize that Julie was doing something to hide her pregnancy, you had to drink,” Bowen’s sister said.
