Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson welcomes first child, Beckett Mercer, with husband Justin Mikita – The Sun

MODERN Family star Jesse Tyle Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita have become parents.

The pair welcomed their son via surrogacy and reps for the pair confirmed the news, revealing their baby boy Beckett was born on July 7.

In a statement given to People magazine, the spokesperson said: "Jesse and Justin welcomed their little bundle of joy Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita on July 7, 2020.

"The new parents are overjoyed and excited for this new journey as a family of three."

The 44-year-old actor, who played lawyer Mitchell Pritchett on the hit ABC sitcom, confirmed in January that he and Justin were going to become fathers.

Speaking about life in his 40s, he said on The Late Late Show with James Corden: "It’s when you finally become an adult, I feel. Like, ‘I need to start getting serious about things.’

“Actually, this is something I haven’t even mentioned to anyone so if we could just keep it between the three of us and you all, but I’m actually expecting a baby in July with my husband."

Justin, 34 and a lawyer, and Jesse married in July 2013 in New York City after two years together.

In February, the pair celebrated the baby news with an epic baby shower that featured insanely lavish poolside decorations, and a performance by the Aquawillies — a group of male synchronized swimmers.

Jesse's Modern Family co-stars Sarah Hyland and Sofía Vergara were on the guest list, along with the likes of Betty Who, Jen Atkin, Lisa Rinna and Broadway actress Shoshana Bean.

The hit comedy aired its final episode in April after first introducing the Pritchards, the Dunpheys and the Tuckers.
