Eric Stonestreet is engaged to fiancée Lindsay Schweitzer, the “Modern Family” star announced in an Instagram post over the weekend.
The couple posed in a series of pictures with Schweitzer showing a stunning ring. Stonestreet captioned the pictures: “She said, ‘She’d have her people call my people.’
“The couple’s famous friends weighed in, with Stonestreet’s “Modern Family” costar Julie Bowen writing,” I honestly don’t know who is luckier (lie: I do).” Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Stonestreet’s husband on the show wrote, “Jesus Christ. Finally.”
“She said, ‘She’d have her people call my people,'” Stonestreet wrote.
The “Modern Family” star and two-time Emmy winner shared a trio of photos of him mugging for the camera as Schweitzer showed off her ring.
Stonestreet, 49, has been dating Schweitzer, a pediatric nurse, since meeting her at a charity event in his hometown of Kansas City in 2016.
The couple received an outpouring of congratulations on Instagram from former “Modern Family” co-stars Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as well as Bethenny Frankel, Gwyneth Paltrow, Michael Bublé, Howie Mandel, Alyssa Milano and Rob Riggle.
“Your girlfriend is lovely — I met her backstage,” DeGeneres said. “She’s a nurse. That’s a good thing for you, because you’re a hypochondriac.”
“I’m a big baby, too,” Stonestreet said. “She calms me — she calms my nerves. I’m a very high-strung person.”
