Jesse Tyler Ferguson is preparing for the biggest role in his life: dad.

The “Modern Family” star revealed on Wednesday night’s episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” that he and husband Justin Mikita are expecting a baby.

Ferguson and Corden were giving Charlie Hunnam advice on turning forty when Ferguson broke the news. 

“It’s when you finally become an adult, I feel. Like, ‘I need to start getting serious about things.’” Ferguson said before making his announcement. 

“Actually, this is something I haven’t even mentioned to anyone, if we could just keep it between the three of us and you all, but I’m actually expecting a baby in July with my husband,” he said. 

“I’m very excited, but it feels like I’m 44 now, let’s get this show going,” he added. “Tick tock.”

When Corden asked if he’s expecting a boy or a girl, Ferguson answered, “A human.”

While Ferguson prepares for his new arrival, he is wrapping the final season of his long-running comedy series. 

This will be the first baby for the couple who have been married since 2013.
