Jesse Tyler Ferguson‘s Modern Family is expanding!
On May 27, the actor shared the exciting news that he and husband Justin Mikita would be welcoming another child in a video on Instagram adding that he is “so excited” for his 22-month-old son, Beckett, to have a sibling.
In a lengthy caption, Jesse announced, “Our growing family will be a family of four later this fall!”
The actor used the moment to discuss the current political climate amid the devastating school shooting in Uvalde, Texas on May 24 and the threats to reproductive rights and trans rights across the country.
Jesse wrote, “Like the majority of people in this country right now, we are heartbroken at the attacks all over the country — from senseless gun violence to state by state attacks on our transgender family and an onslaught of attacks on women’s reproductive health.”
The Modern Family star went on to note that the non-profit he created alongside Justin, Pronoun, is continuing to “raise funds for the incredible organizations on the ground fighting for LGBTQIA+ equality.”
