Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita Will Welcome Second Baby Into Their Family

It looks like one modern family is about to get a little bit bigger this fall! Jesse Tyler Ferguson (aka Mitchell Pritchett from Modern Family) just took to Instagram to announce that he and his husband, Justin Mikita, are expecting a new baby.

The 46-year-old actor posted a video to reveal the major update, writing, “@justinmikita and I have some exciting news, we’re expecting number 2! Our growing family will be a family of four later this fall! We are so excited for Beckett to have a sibling.”

Ferguson also added, “We are so excited to have a little one joining our growing family—and so proud to support the choice to do it...A special thanks to @drshahinghadir & @scrcivf, who [have] provided us the possibility to expand our family not once, but twice. We wouldn’t be here without you!”

He followed up this video with a snap of him and Mikita standing with their reproductive specialist, Dr. Shahin Ghadir.

But the news didn't stop there. In addition to the growth of their family, Ferguson also revealed that he and Mikita are partnering with a small business.

“We are so proud to be partnering with @shopmilimili, a female (mommy) owned small business made in L.A., on a gorgeous custom collection of sleep sacks, crib sheets, eye masks & robes designed by queer artist @katiekaapcke with 100% of the proceeds going to PRONOUN,” he wrote. “We will be using these resources to target states where reproductive health and transgender rights are currently under constant attack, starting today with a $25,000 donation each to @aclu_nationwide, @nationalabortionfederation & @everytown.”

Ferguson and Mikita's non-profit, PRONOUN, helps to raise funds for grassroots organizations and fight for LGBTQ+ equality.

The pair previously welcomed their first child, Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita, back in July of 2020.

Talk about an exciting day. Congrats to the whole family!
