Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his longtime boyfriend Justin Mikita are getting married! The "Modern Family" star announced Wednesday that the two are engaged.
"It's true -- I popped the big Q!" Ferguson, 36, says in a new video for Tie the Knot, the couple's new line of bow ties benefiting gay rights organizations.
Mikita, 27, pops into the vid to exclaim, "I said yes!"
Tie the Knot will feature a collection of bow ties designed by the husbands-to-be.
"The definition of marriage cannot be disputed. It's right there in black and white and it's been the same since the start of Wikipedia," Ferguson says, smiling. "We want our interpersonal relationship to be acknowledged in a union formalized via a wedding ceremony.
"But we're just like millions of Americans who are denied the basic civil rights to marry the person that we love," he said.
Ferguson and Mikita, an attorney, have been together for two years.
Ferguson told us in March that they had already been talking about getting hitched. "I'm all about something very simple with a small select group of people," he said, before cracking, "I think Justin has different ideas. He's more of a Kardashian-size wedding."
