“Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson is engaged to Justin Mikita. The actor announced the news in a video with Tie the Knot on September 19.
Ferguson popped the question around the same time his co-star Sofia Vergara got engaged to Nick Loeb.
“It happened in Mexico, ironically a few days before Sofia got engaged,” Ferguson tells People.com. (The future spouses were visiting the country to help Vergara celebrate her 40th birthday in July.) “I told Sofia the day before she got engaged. Very quietly, I said, ‘Justin and I got engaged, but we don’t want to tell a lot of people and we don’t want to upstage you on your big birthday weekend’ — and then the next day she gets engaged on a Tulum ruin!” Ferguson laughed. “So, she has upstaged us.”
Ferguson and Mikita have been together since January 2011.
As for wedding plans he says, “We don’t know yet. Don’t hold your breath.”
