LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Shhhh! Don’t tell Cam — Mitchell’s found himself a new man!
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett on ABC’s hit comedy “Modern Family,” made his first public appearance with his new boyfriend, Justin Mikita, on Thursday at the ELLE Women in TV event in Hollywood.
The happy pair hit the red carpet hand-in-hand, before Jesse jokingly introduced his man to Access, saying, “This is Justin — I don’t even know his last name.”
With Valentine’s Day coming up, the 35-year-old actor seized the opportunity to hint at what he’d like from Justin, 25, when February 14 rolls around.
“You know I always like getting flowers,” Jesse told Access of his favorite Valentine’s Day gift ideas. “I don’t know what’s wrong with flowers.
“Also maybe like a nice watch,” he hinted, with a wink toward Justin.
Though Jesse has yet to officially comment on his new relationship, the actor announced Justin as his date for the evening via Twitter, writing, “So @justinmikita and I are at the Elle Women in TV party,” he wrote, adding a picture of two nameplates that read “Jesse Tyler Ferguson” and “Guest of Jesse Tyler Ferguson.”
According to Us Weekly, Justin may be on Jesse’s arm at Sunday’s SAG Awards as well, as he was reportedly overheard telling guests he’ll “be there in the background.”
