If Jesse Tyler Ferguson has his way, Gabourey Sidibe will be headed to the Pritchett/Tucker household. In a new interview with‘s PopWrap, the “Modern Family” star reveals that he’s actively approached the Oscar nominee about playing Lily’s nanny in an upcoming episode!

“The one person I actually have gone after — because she’d be so brilliant — is Gabourey Sidibe. I think she would be fantastic as a nanny we hire. She’s just so bubbly and sweet and a fan of the show. I think this would be a seamless fit for her,” Jesse tells PopWrap.

And that’s not all Jesse spilled — from Fred Williard’s return to an upcoming bird attack plotline — spoilers were abundant!
