Okay, we’re fangirling. Again. But with a smile like James Marsden’s, it’s impossible not to fall in love. He’s popped up here and there and has made quite the name for himself; you would’ve seen him most recently starring in the futuristic-western drama series, Westworld. On Modern Family however, he certainly has a more light-hearted role; possibly you’ve forgotten his not-so-grand entrance when he attempted to sleep in Mitch and Cam’s backyard…in a princess castle…
Marsden was married to Lisa Linde for 11 years, with whom he has three children. The pair, however, decided to split up. Since then, he found British singer Edei, whom he has been dating for two years. The pair aren’t shy of sharing their personal life on social media, however, they do their best to not appear too frequently in the spotlight!
Stephanie Beatriz & Brad Hoss (Married)
You probably know Stephanie Beatriz as the tough, leather-jacket wearing bad-ass on sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but once upon a time she made an appearance on Modern Family as Gloria’s sister! You may also remember that it was SHE who was in fact supposed to marry Jay initially! Sure, on the show she’s not exactly portrayed as the most bubbly, fun person to be around, but it’s definitely the opposite in real life!
Actor boyfriend Brad Hoss knew she was the one and popped the question in October 2017. The pair got married in secret, in 2018. We wish them all the best!
Leslie Mann & Judd Apatow (Married)
What we love about these celebrity cameos is that they may be small, but they certainly add a bit of pizzazz! In a hilariously funny twist, Cameron tried to prove that he still had the wit and charm to make a woman fall for him! Enter Leslie Mann. Are you surprised that it worked? We’re not! Cam’s still got it, ladies and gents!
In the real world, we’re sure she’s swatting away men, but she’s only got her eyes for one man; Judd Apatow. An American TV producer, writer, director, actor and stand-up comedian, he’s even founded his own production company! The pair have been married for almost 22 years and have two beautiful girls.
Judy Greer & Dean E. Johnson (Married)
When it comes to Claire Dunphy, being the mother hen…you notice that as a mom, she’s got that mysterious mother’s intuition. Is she ever wrong!? As per usual, Claire smelt a rat when Denise came into the picture. Her gut feeling was proven right when it became apparent that Judy Greer’s character was sneaking around, and her messaging Phil on social media wasn’t exactly innocent. What a homewrecker! But most certainly not on Claire’s watch!
While she, like many other actors who've had brief stints on the show, Judy has created quite the career for herself; you probably recognize her face from The Wedding Planner, The Descendants, Love happens, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses and Love and Other Drugs. While she was clearly willing to be unfaithful in the episode, with her real-life husband, TV producer Dean E. Johnsen, things are of course the total opposite! The pair married in 2011 following a blind date. Funnily enough, the couple have been in the media recently due to the fact that they are finally moving in together! Only took them 7 years!
Matt Dillon & Roberta Mastromichele (Dating)
We may have seen how Gloria’s ex stirred up a little trouble earlier on our list, and it seems the wrath of the exes continues. Enter Robbie Sullivan, portrayed by Matt Dillon. Robbie was Claire Dunphy’s high school boyfriend, but there was a twist; he had some fantasies about Claire’s mommy dearest, Dede. The plot thickens when Claire finds out that Robbie and Dede were actually romantically involved! This sounds exactly like that song…oh yes…Stacey’s Mom, has got it going on…she’s all I want and I’ve waited for sooo long…STACEY CAN’T YOU – okay, we’re done. We promise.
Though Robbie didn’t quite get the girl he came for on Modern Family – or did he? In real life, he’s snagged himself a beautiful Italian actress. The pair have been dating since 2014, however, have kept their relationship under a veil of secrecy.
