Sarah Hyland has revealed a long speculated-upon secret concerning her ‘Modern Family’ character Haley Dunphy – she’s bisexual.

The 26 year old star, who has held down the role of Haley on the ABC comedy since it debuted way back in 2009, had an impromptu question and answer session with her Twitter followers yesterday evening.

Over the nine seasons of ‘Modern Family’ thusfar, Haley Dunphy has not yet dated a girl – but her love life has always been a recurring theme of the series and its plot lines. She dated a boy named Dylan for a bit at the start of the series, but then for multiple seasons, she and a character named Andy were in a will they/won’t they storyline before finally getting together in season seven. With a tenth series of 15 episodes in the offing, however, that all might yet change.

“I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm,” Hyland wrote during a Twitter conversation on Wednesday night (November 1st) when a fan asked her straight-up whether Haley is bisexual.

The writers of the show haven’t yet responded to Hyland’s tweet, but plenty of fans waded in to praise her for the revelation.

“Yay! Go Sarah! I’m bi and proud,” one fan tweeted. “Thank you so much, you’re a real sweetheart (this literally made my day),” another said.

In real life, Hyland is widely reported to be dating former star of ‘The Bachelor’ Wells Adam, and they were spotted earlier this week dressing up as ‘Stranger Things’ characters Eleven and Dustin for Halloween.

“They’ve been friends for a while and now they’ve been hanging out and spending more time together,” a source told People earlier this week, adding, “They’re flirty.”
