Julie Bowen's concern when auditioning for Modern Family is one no woman should ever have.

Luckily for Julie Bowen and for every Modern Family fan – the popular television show doesn’t discriminate against pregnant women when hiring their cast.

Something that every business in every industry should take note of because can you imagine the show without Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy?

No. The world would not be right.

Bowen, 45, admits that she was really worried when she auditioned for Modern Family because she was pregnant with twins at the time and didn't think the producers of the show would hire her.

"They kept bringing me in over and over and sort of staring at my humongous belly, and I thought, 'I'm never getting this job'," she told PEOPLE.

The now mum of three admitted that at the time she was absolutely distraught.

"[It was] the best script I'd read in pilot season in years," she told the publication. "I went home and cried and cried and cried."

Bowen (obviously) had nothing to worry about, because she got the role and has been nailing it ever since. She has won two Emmy Awards since starring as Claire Dunphy. She is also married to 42-year-old real-estate investor, Scott Phillips and is a mum to three boys - Oliver, 8 and Gus and John, both 6.

The actress admits that her boys keep her extremely busy.

She told PEOPLE"If we're going to the park, I'm going to be mud-splattered so I'm not thinking about how I'm going to have to physically present myself."

But the high achiever admits that she enjoys challenges, explaining that Modern Family has become a safe space and she may look at doing something more challenging soon - behind the camera.

Bowen is just proof that employers should not discriminate against pregnant women. They are hard working and they know how to use their time efficiently.

Bowen has really succeeded since she began her time on Modern Family and has proven that women - with four males in their household - can conquer anything.

Have you ever worried you wouldn't get hired because of something in your personal life?
