Jesse Tyler Ferguson is celebrating every bowel movement his 2-year-old son, Beckett, makes, and even throwing 'parades for poop' for himself and his husband.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, best known for his role as Mitchell Pritchett in the hit TV show “Modern Family,” has been throwing some unusual parties in his house lately. According to Page Six, the actor, who recently became a father of two, has been knee-deep in potty training his 2-year-old son Beckett, and he’s not shy about celebrating every bowel movement. “Making a big production out of a bowel movement is something we do in our house right now,” he joked. But the celebrations aren’t just limited to his son. Ferguson married to lawyer and Broadway producer Justin Mikita, revealed they have been throwing “parades for poop” for themselves too. “‘Look! It’s very exciting that we all poop so much!’ A lot of parades for poop are being thrown in our house right now,” he said.
According to Page Six, Ferguson welcomed his second son Sullivan in November last year and admitted that having “two little ones is exhausting.” “People warn you but they don’t really warn you!” he quipped. Jesse Tyler Ferguson has been keeping busy with a variety of projects since the end of his hit TV show “Modern Family.” Although there were talks of a spinoff show centered on his character, Mitchell Pritchett, and his on-screen husband, Cameron Tucker, the project seems to have fallen through. Nevertheless, Ferguson is excited about pursuing new opportunities and is open to the idea of working with the “Modern Family” cast again.
In addition to his parenting adventures, Ferguson has been busy working in the entertainment industry. He and his husband, Justin Mikita, collaborated on the documentary “Broadway Rising,” which chronicled the efforts to reopen Broadway after the COVID-19 shutdown. This project was a labor of love for Ferguson, who is a passionate theater enthusiast. Despite the end of “Modern Family,” Ferguson is grateful for the special experience the show brought him. He fondly remembers the close bonds he formed with the cast and crew and remains in touch with many of his former colleagues. While he would be open to the idea of a reunion project, he acknowledges that it wouldn’t be the same as the original show.
Ferguson recently attended the Broadway opening of “Shucked,” where he turned heads with a Stetson hat gifted to him by Eric Stonestreet, who played his on-screen husband on “Modern Family.” Although he is not typically a fan of cowboy hats, Ferguson felt that the occasion called for a special accessory, and he wore the hat proudly. Along with Ferguson, several other celebrities graced the red carpet at the “Shucked” opening, including Kacey Musgraves, Kristin Chenoweth, and Susan Sarandon. The event was a celebration of the reopening of Broadway, which has been hit hard by the pandemic.
Looking to the future, Ferguson is eager to explore new projects and opportunities. He is open to working with his former “Modern Family” castmates, but he is also excited about the prospect of branching out and trying new things. As he continues to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the entertainment industry, Ferguson remains optimistic and enthusiastic about what the future holds.
