Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, most notably known for his role as Mitch Pritchett on the TV series Modern Family, has grown his family! Jesse and his husband Justin Mikita have announced the arrival of their second child! “We are overjoyed to be a family of four.”

Jesse, who is currently starring in the Broadway play Take Me Out, appropriately dressed his newborn in a onesie featuring the team of his baseball-themed play. “Sad to be away from my @takemeoutbway fam tonight,” he began in his announcement post, “but we ran off to welcome our newest little one.” The couple has named their newborn Sullivan Louis Ferguson Mikita.

In their joint announcement post, the couple expressed their gratitude to the team that helped make their new family member possible. “A special thanks to @drshahinghadir for helping us grow our family & our incredible surrogate and all of the nurses and doctors.” Sullivan joins the family with an older brother. Jesse and Justin welcomed their first child, a son named Beckett Mercer, in July 2020, three months after the series finale of Modern Family.

Jesse dated the lawyer and producer for two years before the couple became engaged in September 2012. They tied the knot on July 30, 2013 in Manhattan. To celebrate their 9th wedding anniversary, the actor shared a picture of the couple in Italy and expressed his gratitude for his partner. “Grateful that I get to be your husband. I love you & the family we are creating together!”

Congratulations to Jesse and Justin on the arrival of their second child! We wish them lots of love as they welcome Sullivan into their family.
