Jesse Tyler Ferguson Jokes He's Raising Son Beckett Gay 'Until He Decides He's Straight'

Jesse Tyler Ferguson is opening up about life as a dad!

The 45-year-old Modern Family actor appeared for a virtual interview with Ellen DeGeneres, which aired on Tuesday (March 9).

During their interview, Jesse chatted about raising his son Beckett, 8 months, with husband Justin Mikita.

“It’s a lot of show tunes because that’s what I like. We’re raising him gay until he decides he’s straight,” Jesse joked. “On the way back from the hospital, we played Britney Spears because that is what Justin demanded he listen to. That was his first exposure to music. It’s a lot of singing. I’m writing lots of songs for him. Everything has a song.”

Jesse added, “He’s going to be like such a straight kid. Who knows. I’ll let him do whatever he wants. But I just have a feeling you’re going to want to play football. I have to learn how to do all of those things.”

Jesse and Justin, 35, welcomed Beckett back in July 2020. He is the first child for the couple who have been married since 2013.

If you missed it, Jesse jokingly tried to mom-shame one of his famous friends!
