The 26-year-old actress confirmed fan theories on Wednesday that Haley is bisexual, responding to one who asked if it was indeed true by writing on Twitter, “I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm.”
On Thursday, she clarified that the theory is just her “personal opinion.”
Those Modern Family writers, including co-creator Steve Levitan, haven’t responded to Hyland’s tweet. But that didn’t stop Hyland’s followers from praising her for the scoop.
“Yay! Go Sarah! I’m bi and proud 💪,” wrote one user.
“This made me tear up a lil,” another said. “thank you love💖💖.”
Over Modern Family‘s 9 seasons, Haley’s dating life has been a recurring storyline. All of her nine boyfriends on the show have been men, beginning with her on-again off-again boyfriend Dylan (played by openly gay actor Reid Ewing). Aside from Dylan, her most significant relationship on the show was with former manny Andy (Adam DeVine), with whom she was in a “will they or won’t they” arch until they finally started dating in season 7.
She’s yet to date a woman, but with 15 episodes still coming this season, anything is possible.
