Modern Family had a winning Emmys night. The sitcom took home its fifth award for outstanding comedy series – and gave fans a scandalous photobomb.

The Oscars had Benedict Cumberbatch, the Emmys had Kerry Washington. The Scandal star executed a picture-perfect prank, popping up in the back of Modern Family’s candid cast photo.

Sofia Vergara posted the shot, which also included cast mates Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O’Neill, on her Instagram with the caption: “Modern Family in da house!!!” Wonder if she noticed that her Emmys portrait included an extra member?

Briefly joining this beloved TV family should be great practice for the new mom, who welcomed her first child, daughter Isabelle Amarachi, in April.
