She revealed to the website how she broke the news to her Modern Family costars.

She said: “I told [only] Julie Bowen because I had talked to her before about my desire to have the surgery. She was really supportive and understanding. I just saw Sofia [Vergara] the other day, and she was like, ‘Oh my God! I love them! They’re great!’

The men on the show had a slightly different reaction. 

"It’s funny - it's like the guys don’t want to say anything, so they don’t and they just are [thinking], There’s a change. Which is good, I mean [laughs], but it’s funny now for them to notice and see the reactions," she said.

She added: "Everyone is really happy for me and has been super supportive. They understand I’ve been struggling with this for so many years.”
