Jesse Tyler Ferguson recently became engaged to Justin Mikita and Access Hollywood caught up with the “Modern Family” funnyman to get the details on the romantic proposal!
“[Our engagement] happened in Mexico, ironically a few days before Sofia [Vergara] got engaged,” Jesse revealed to Access guest correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi on the red carpet at the 64th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, referencing his “Modern Family” co-star who also recently got engaged to longtime love Nick Loeb.
Jesse — who was in Mexico with Sofia as part of her 40th birthday celebration weekend in July — tried to keep news of his engagement quiet (so as not to draw attention away from Sofia), but his plan quickly went awry.
“I told Sofia the day before she got engaged, very quietly I said, ‘Justin and I got engaged, but we don’t want to tell a lot of people and we don’t want to upstage you on your big birthday weekend,’ and then the next day she gets engaged on a Tulum ruin!!” he said with a laugh. “So, she has upstaged us.”
As for when Jesse and Justin will tie the knot, the actor said they haven’t officially begun planning just yet.
“We don’t know yet,” he said, when asked when the couple’s nuptials will take place. “Don’t hold your breath.”
