Ty Burrell has expanded his own modern family.

The Emmy winner and wife Holly have adopted a baby girl, their second child, Burrell's rep confirmed Monday to E! News.

The little one joins sister Frances, who mom and dad adopted in 2010.

So, has life been reflecting his art in any way since becoming a real-life father?

"I guess if Phil can raise kids, so can I!" Burrell told us after welcoming his first child aboard.

And while his perpetually clueless yet super-caring dad on Modern Family continues to bumble his way through the punches, Burrell's got years before his own daughters start rolling their eyes at him.

"I do love how much he tries, you know what I mean?" Burrell said. "I hope I can try as hard as Phil. Maybe not quite as hard as Phil, but I hope I can try."
