'Modern Family': Gloria Goes Into Labor On Manny's Birthday (VIDEO)

It was a big day for the Delgados on "Modern Family." It was Manny's birthday, and both Gloria and Jay had set up a huge surprise party for him. Only the party didn't go as planned. Since they were pretending they had no plans, Manny actually brought a girl home and shared a kiss with her -- in front of the whole family hiding in the dark.

As if that wasn't enough, then Gloria went into labor. Determined to not force Manny to share his birthday with the new baby, she tried her best to pretend it wasn't happening, but that became hard to do when her water broke. As bizarre of a story as the birth day of the new baby will be, Luke has video evidence of everything.

At the hospital, the family rallied around Gloria and the new addition to their family. Claire wasn't too thrilled that Gloria was immediately thin and beautiful again, but no one could deny how adorable the baby was. Even crusty Jay was moved by Gloria's vulnerability in that moment. She was scared they were too old and out of practice, but he assured her they would be fine, and he would be there with her always.

That magical balance of heart and laughter that TV Fanatic loves so continues on "Modern Familiy" every Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
