Jesse Tyler Ferguson is marrying boyfriend Scott Makita
While his Modern Family significant other Eric Stonestreet was busy getting escorted out of a Dodgers game for arguing with a Cardinals fan over the weekend, Jesse Tyler Ferguson was busy getting engaged and selling bow ties. Wait, what was that first part?
Ferguson, 36, announced the news in a video posted on TieTheKnot.org (a group working for marriage equality) that he was marrying lawyer boyfriend Justin Mikita, 27. "It's true, I popped the big Q," Ferguson says. Makita joins him onscreen, noting, "I said yes!" Watch the video above. The pair have been dating for almost two years.
Mikita and Ferguson have also been working with Tie Bar to sell bowties to help gay rights groups. That would explain the neckwear in the video, then. We initially thought they were just being fashionable.
