Jesse Tyler Ferguson portrayed a doting dad for 11 seasons on “Modern Family,” and now that the show has wrapped, the actor is living the real deal with husband Justin Mikita. The couple tied the knot in New York City back in 2013, and nearly a decade later, they’re dads to two sweet boys.
Ferguson and Mikita welcomed their first child, Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita, in 2020 and were “overjoyed and excited” about their newly minted parent status, a rep for Ferguson told Entertainment Weekly at the time. Two weeks after the little one entered the world, Ferguson raved over Mikita in an anniversary post on Instagram, writing, “7 years ago today I married you. Two weeks ago I got to see you become a dad. We are entering a whole new chapter and I couldn’t be happier to be doing it with you. Happy anniversary @justinmikita. Beckett is so lucky to have you and so am I.”
From then on, it was clear that both Ferguson and Mikita were enjoying every second of their life as a family of three, often showing off their son on Instagram and sharing sweet family photos. In November 2022, the couple were blessed with another sweet baby boy: Sullivan Louis Ferguson-Mikita, whom they welcomed via surrogate.
“We are overjoyed to be a family of four,” Ferguson wrote in an announcement post, also thanking infertility and reproductive endocrinology specialist Shahin Ghadir, MD, FACOG; their surrogate; and all the nurses and doctors who helped bring their baby into the world safely.
