Modern Family star Julie Bowen graces the September cover of More magazine. She appears to be totally delightful, funny and beautiful!
The actress married real estate investor Scott Phillips in 2004. They have a 4-year-old son Oliver and 2-year-old twins, John and Gus.
Julie joked, “I did not want twins as a second go-around. I should have been much more cautious. I should have had … half sex?”
She seems to have a fabulous sense of humor. Addressing the speculation that she underwent in vitro fertilization, “Everybody asked me, ‘How many did you put in?’ and I’d be like, ‘Just one penis. Thanks!’”
Knowing that the challenges of having twins could be difficult, going from one child to three, she heard lots of ramblings about how wonderful having twins would be, “And I was like, ‘Who the f— are you talking to?!’ If you could see me naked, you would weep. Children are like crazy, drunken small people in your house.”
So how does the mother of three juggle that and being on one of America’s favorite prime-time sitcoms? During the week Julie and Scott have help with the kids, but when it comes to the weekend they are nanny-free and on their own.
Julie takes her mothering seriously and said that she surprised herself by how committed she is to her children, “I’m constantly shocked that I am successfully taking care of this family and that I’m capable of putting their needs in front of mine. I don’t think I could have done it in my twenties.”
Fun fact about Julie…her water broke while her television character gave birth on Boston Legal.
