‘Modern Family‘ star Julie Bowen is mom to three boys – sons Oliver, 4, and twins John and Gus, 2. The celebrity mom opened up to this month’s issue of More magazine about the utter shock of expecting twins when she was only aiming for “one more” baby. She handles her life much like her Modern Family character Claire Dunphy – with a whole lot of humor!
“I did not want twins as a second go-around. I should have been much more cautious. I should have had … half sex?
At the time I only had one kid, but with two on the way I was always hearing talk about golden mystical baby things and precious time. 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.”
Julie and her husband, Scott Phillips, keep their home nanny-free on weekends, she joked:
I have three kids. I should know how to take care of them. We’d be like, ‘Here comes Saturday. It’s going to be a long-ass weekend.’ All we did was poop patrol for 48 hours. When Monday would come, we’d be like, ‘Thank God.’”
She says that she doesn’t think she could’ve been such a dedicated mom in her twenties:
“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.
