Jesse revealed the news that he and Justin were expecting back in January of this year during his guest appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. While Jesse was discussing with James what it was like to be in his 40’s, he shared, “I’m actually expecting a baby in July with my husband.”
In February, the couple was treated to a beautiful baby shower to celebrate for the arrival of their newborn. Fellow Modern Family co-stars Sofia Vergara and Sarah Hyland were in attendance. In lieu of gifts, guests made donations to No Kid Hungry, a charitable organization whose mission is to end childhood hunger in the United States.

Justin and I did NOT want a baby shower but we are so glad we gave in! Thank you to all of our friends who showed up to celebrate our growing family. @toddhawk & @c.c.monroedesign raised the baby shower bar to wild heights. One moment I was squealing with glee (the @aquawillies) and the next I was in tears (@shobean). And thanks to @wheelhousegroup for hosting! In lieu of gifts we asked our guests to make donations to @nokidhungry. They do amazing work getting meals to hungry children. If you feel inclined, check out their page to learn more about them! Can’t wait to go on this adventure with you @justinmikita! 👶🏽
We wish all the best to Jesse and Justin as they welcome Beckett into their family!
