by at . Comments

Modern Family will soon introduce a baby for Jay and Gloria. But that's not the only member of this family viewers are scheduled to meet.

The ABC sitcom announced today that Elizabeth Pena (La Bamba, Rush Hour) has been cast as Gloria's mother and Stephanie Beatriz (The Closer, The Smart One) as Sofia, Gloria’s sister.

Both relatives will appear on the 12th episode of Modern Family Season 4, making it very likely their daughter/sibling will have given birth by then and they are in town to meet the tyke. Early congratulations to all!
