'Modern Family' cast re-creates group photo 10 years later for show's final season
The cast of "Modern Family" has grown up so much over the years, and now we have photographic evidence!
In an official Instagram post on Wednesday, the cast of the long-running ABC sitcom, which says goodbye after 11 seasons later this year, shared a side-by-side image of two group photos, one taken during the show's first table read in 2009, and another during their most recent table read this week.
"From the first table read 10 years ago to the last first table read. We love our #ModernFamily," the photo's caption reads.

Nolan Gould joined in on his castmates' reflections, expressing gratitude towards his on-screen family. "Spot the differences. The top photo was taken on the day of our first table read, 11 years ago. Today was the last of our first table reads. Excited to be spending one more season with the best TV family and crew," he wrote.
The most striking differences from the first image to the second are among the show's child stars. Gould is unmistakably taller, skyrocketing from one of the cast's shortest members to one of the tallest, while Rico Rodriguez, Sarah Hyland, and Ariel Winter have also aged gracefully into young adulthood.

"Seven years ago today. Almost nothing has changed," Anderson-Emmons captioned the post, adding a father-daughter emoji.
