We’ve reached our resident troublemaker/party girl/ make-up artist/ drama queen (watch out Gloria…and Cameron!) Haley Dunphy. Whilst she may not possess even a quarter of the brains her sister Alex has, she certainly has the looks which…in a teenage girl’s world, are totally, like, more important! The eldest of the Dunphy’s, she seems to be only interested in boys and partying – though her family is constantly shaking their heads at her poor dating choices. Love is blind, okay?!
Whilst she seems to have trouble with the opposite sex on the show, in real life, Sarah Hyland doesn’t have a problem at all! The dark-haired beauty is dating reality TV-star Wells Adams. Recently, he’s been in a little hot water over being able to afford a ring for his lady, after radio hosts Bobby Bones, Lunchbox and Amy Brown claimed the 34-year-old couldn’t afford to buy her a ring, and also dissed him for living in her LA home! To be fair…she’s certainly making enough bank to cover the ring AND the wedding. Don’t worry Wells, your baby girl’s got you.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson & Justin Mikita (Married)
“I actually came out to my Dad three times before he acknowledged it. I’m not sure if maybe he was hoping he heard it wrong, like I said ‘Dad, I’m grey.’” Pretty sure you know who would’ve said this; it’s Jay’s first son, Mitchell Pritchett! Of course, we know that he makes up half of the fabulous gay couple in the series, alongside his partner in crime, Cameron Tucker. Mitchell is most definitely the calmer, more grounded partner…though he isn’t without his occasional moments! He definitely is the yin to Tucker’s flamboyant yang, though we know that whilst the pair have on-screen magic, Eric Stonestreet just isn’t the right man for Jesse.
Tyler Ferguson is married to actor and producer Justin Mikita, with whom he dated for many years before walking down the aisle in 2013! Mikita, who is also an activist and social innovator, seems to be quite the interior decorator; recently the couple were featured on Architectural Digest’s website for their stylish home. Who says you can’t have it all?! Oh, and we’re totally gaga over the fact they’re tight with John Legend and supermodel wife Chrissie Teigen!
Eric Stonestreet & Lindsay Schweitzer (Dating)
There’s certainly only room for one kween on the show – and that is of course Cameron Tucker. His temper-tantrums and antics bring so much life and comic relief to the show, he’s like the Hawaiian shirt of the family! Portrayed by Eric Stonestreet, who, to many people’s surprise is straight, it is clear that Eric has an amazing talent! Who would’ve thought a straight guy could play such a wonderfully flamboyant lead!
Outside of the show, Eric has been seen strolling the red carpet with his lady love, Lindsay Schweitzer. The pair have been dating since mid-2017, and the combination of actor and pediatric nurse seems to be well, without us sounding corny, a match made in heaven! Sources say the pair met at a charity event, and she and Stonestreet have been joined at the hip, ever since!
Adam DeVine & Chloe Bridges (Dating)
Sure, Haley Dunphy seems to chew through boyfriends like the dog does her homework, but we think she’ll always have a soft spot for Andy Bailey. Of course, now that you’re looking at his face…you can surely place him! Yep, that’s right, he’s the very sassy Bumper from Pitch Perfect! Whilst he doesn’t exactly have a singing role on Modern Family, he’s definitely made his mark on the show. In real life, he’s something of a comedic genius, what with his work on Pitch Perfect, as well as on the show Workaholics. Quite a talented guy, eh?
But whilst he may play cute and coy on the show, in real life he’s snagged himself a real diamond! His girlfriend, Chloe Bridges, is quite the stunner. The pair, dating since 2015, recently enjoyed a long romantic European holiday. There were rumors spreading he was going to pop the question, as he was booking the honeymoon suites (lucky gal!) but he’s assured the media he has no plans on getting hitched anytime soon!
Joe Mande & Kylie Augustine (Married)
A relative latecomer to the show is stand-up comedian Joe Mande. The walking funny bone portrays Ben, Alex Dunphy’s love interest in season 8 of Modern Family. Whilst he only makes a brief appearance on the show, it’s his real-life that has us interested! Quickly gaining in popularity, the actor-comedian is also a writer, and a huge animal lover!
Together with his wife Kylie Augustine, (as well as their kids!) Joe’s home has become something of a dog shelter – just check out Kylie’s Instagram! So…many…puppies! The couple tied the knot in 2015, and, refreshingly, have decided to keep their private life, well, private! Not only does it give their beautiful family a chance to grow without the pressure and the media spotlight, but also some privacy! That’s no joke! (ha…ha...)
