‘Modern Family’ season 4 spoilers: Who’s not having more kids?

On the season 3 finale for “Modern Family,” we were met with a little bit of a shocker as Gloria realized that she was pregnant with Jay’s child — and the two were going to enter a part of their lives again that they long assumed would be over.

So is one of the show’s other couples going to be joining Sofia Vergara and Ed O’Neill’s characters? Don’t count on it. Speaking to TV Guide in a new interview, Ty Burrell had the following to say about an upcoming story:

“Because of Gloria’s pregnancy, Phil and Claire will be debating about him getting a vasectomy … I won’t say what they decide — it goes back and forth — but it’s very fun.”

Meanwhile, Julie Bowen also gave the following lighthearted comment on the matter:

“This subject is close to my heart. Like many women who have given birth, Claire feels like it’s time for Phil to take a hit.” 

Season 4 of “Modern Family” has been filming for several months now, and as with the two years before it there is still a pretty massive challenge that it is going to face — trying to reach the same high level of quality that we have seen from the show in years past. The show has been a consistent contender at just about every awards show on the planet, with Bowen and Burrell each being reigning champions in the Best Supporting Actor and Actress fields.
