Modern Family Stars Reunited To Celebrate Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s Birthday

The Modern Family cast

ABC looks a little different this fall now that veteran comedy series Modern Family is no longer part of its programming lineup. The long-running sitcom finished its eleven-season run earlier this year with an emotional send-off for Jay Pritchett and his family. The cameras may no longer be rolling, but that doesn’t mean the cast doesn’t take the time to hang out and catch up. The was the case when a few Modern Family alums reunited for Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s birthday celebration.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson recently tweeted about his 45th birthday bash, relishing that he was spending it with some of his former co-stars and friends. The intimate gathering was attended by fellow Modern Family stars Julie Bowen, Sarah Hyland and Sofia Vergara, with Joe Manganiello, Vergara’s husband also in attendance. You can check out Ferguson’s sweet post down below:

One can’t help but smile at the sight of some of the Modern Family cast back together again. And the co-stars seemed to enjoy their time together celebrating Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s day. Sofia Vergara shared the same group photo on her own Instagram account, making note of it being the “first Modern Fam reunion”:

Thank u @jessetyler @justinmikita for our first Modern Fam reunion!! missing half of the gang!!! But so much fun!!!

Likewise, Julie Bowen also shared an Instagram post in which she expressed her joy in being with her castmates once more:

So amazing to see these people again. And, yes, I’ll get a new mask tomorrow...

The birthday party posts didn’t stop there, either. Sarah Hyland posted to her own account with a short and sweet caption:

J’adore ma famille

After working with a group of people for over a decade, it’s understandable that you would miss your friends, and it’s nice to see the Modern Family stars had some time to link up. This is even more special given the unusual times we’re living in and the fact that the cast has been quite busy since the show wrapped.

Sofia Vergara has entered the realm of reality competition TV as a judge on America’s Got Talent. Earlier this year, Julie Bowen was tapped to star in a CBS pilot for a mutli-camera comedy called Raised By Wolves. As of right now, it’s unclear if the pilot has been ordered to series. Meanwhile, Sarah Hyland has also remained in her comedy roots and is set to headline ABC comedy Yours, Mine & Paul’s, which is coincidentally being executive produced by her Modern Family dad, Ty Burrell.

With such busy schedules, one has to wonder how the Modern Family group is even able to find the time to get together. Still, as close as they are, they likely make spending time together a priority, and they seem to have plenty of fun whenever they’re in each other’s company.
