Sarah Hyland said Wednesday that her “Modern Family” character Haley Dunphy is bisexual.
The 26-year-old actress responded to a fan who asked whether it was true that Haley is bisexual, writing, “I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm.”
TheWrap has reached out to ABC and Fox. Representatives for the show’s co-creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
“Modern Family” has run for 9 seasons, and Haley has had nine boyfriends, including on-again-off-again love interest Dylan (played by Reid Ewing). She has yet to date a woman.
The popular sitcom also stars Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Nolan Gould and Ariel Winter.
Also on Wednesday, the actress slammed Life & Style magazine for writing a story alleging the actress had plastic surgery. See her tweet below.
“Modern Family” airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
