'Modern Family': New Lily Loves Sofia Vergara's Chest, Jesse Tyler Ferguson Tells Ellen (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

When the producers of "Modern Family" gave the two little twins that portrayed Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet's baby Lily the pink slip after last season, the company line was that they were looking for an actress that was happy to be on set, and a whole lot more enthusiastic on camera.

Looks like they got just what they wanted.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, in his Friday appearance on "The Ellen Show," dished all about Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, his new on-screen daughter, saying that she was a bit existentially overwhelmed on her first day on set -- and quite intrigued by one of her co-stars.

"First of all, she's obsessed with Sofia's... area," Ferguson laughed, pointing at his own chest. "And she was basically just manhandling her, just poking. She was just like, poking, prodding... All the stagehands were like, 'You're so lucky.'"

Somewhere, Ed O'Neil was getting jealous.

Speaking of that existential crisis, Ferguson brought a clip of Lily being confused -- preciously -- in a scene, unsure what was real life and what was television. Watch it above!
