Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of the just-wrapped hit series "Modern Family") and Justin Mikita are not only celebrating their seventh wedding anniversary, but also recently becoming parents The Daily Mail reports. The couple's son, Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita, was born on July 7 this year.

Ferguson first announced the couple's impending parenthood back in January, when he appeared on "The Late Late Show" with James Corden. A representative for Ferguson recently shared a statement with people that concluded, "the new parents are overjoyed and excited for this new journey as a family-of-three."

Ferguson wittily replied by exploring the Instagram user's own account, " 'If we could all just get along as one nation.' -you four posts ago. Sending love to you sire from us and Beckett."
