“Modern Family” broke family sitcom molds by featuring a gay couple — and another leading character may be part of the LGBT community, too.

Sarah Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that while she’s unsure of the official stance of the show’s writers, she believes her character is bisexual.

“I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm,” Hyland tweeted to a fan who asked if the theory was true.

Haley has had nine boyfriends throughout the course of the show and has never expressed an interest in dating women, but Hyland is clearly confident in her assessment! No “Modern Family” writers have weighed in as of yet.
