"The family has learned about Gloria's pregnancy, so there's that to deal with. We're actually shooting our fourth episode right now and we're moving very quickly, so we have some really funny stuff," Jesse explained.

Sofia's recent engagement to Nick Loeb has kept the actress extremely occupied, something her co-stars have taken note of.

"She's very, very busy, both fake Sofia and real Sofia," Jesse added.

Julie, who was on hand for the couple's July engagement in Mexico, marveled at how much fun she had celebrating with her co-star and Sofia's husband-to-be.

"It was crazy! She does nothing small. That woman knows how to go all the way out and it was quite a party," Julie told Access.
