Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson stepped out on Thursday night in L.A. and debuted his new beau Justin Mikita.
“Jesse seemed very affectionate with Justin, holding his hand to pose for photos, and chatting with him during dinner,” an onlooker tells OK! of the couple out at Elle’s Women in Television event.
The 35-year-old, who looked “very in love,” according to the eyewitness at Soho House, introduced Justin, ten years his junior, to friends at the party and sat by him throughout the evening laughing and talking.
“When cast mate Ariel Winter came over to chat with Jesse, she seemed to have already known Justin very well. They got along like good friends,” the eyewitness adds.
And, it seems like Jesse can’t wait for Valentine’s Day with his new man.
“I don’t think there is anything wrong with sending men flowers,” Jesse told OK! before sitting down for dinner.
Jesse play’s Eric Stonestreet’s partner on ABC’s Modern Family, also starring Sofia Vergara, who was honored by Elle during the event for her breakthrough role on the hit show.
