Modern Family's Julie Bowen doesn't sugar coat it: raising three kids under 2 1/2 is hard.

"It's a nightmare," she told UsMagazine.com at the Producers Guild of America Awards Sunday. "It's nothing but tiny little penises and poop all day long. And not in a good way."

Can you guess the A-list baby bump?

Continued the actress, who is mom to Oliver, 2, and twins Gus and John, 8 months, "I always come across sounding like I hate my children. I actually love them very much."

Bowen, 39, says her mommy must-have items are "piles of cloth to wipe up the massive amounts of vomit and fluids that are constantly coming through my house.

"Otherwise, my favorite mommy must-have is an excuse to get out of the house," she went on. "My job. Get out! My doctor told me, 'Only give 70 percent. You’ll hate them if you give 100 percent of yourself.' I took that advice to heart. I run to my job. I love my job."

So how did Bowen get back in shape after having twins?

"Laxatives and vomiting," she joked. "They don’t give you any chance to eat.

"I’m not in shape. But this is soft and doughy," she added, poking herself in the stomach. "I run a lot. That’s the short answer. I run and run and run."
