Obviously, some families on the show do not seem as common as what we're used to... but Does your family not have the same little troubles as well? We sure do. And that is why we love Modern Family so much. The characters are so different but yet they often remind us of ourselves. Let`s dive inside the Modern Family and reveal what is going on in the real lives of the characters! Like her determined and family-loving character Gloria, Sofia is always surrounded by her friends, family, and most of her cast mates and crew members. She always had dozens of admirers but she chose to marry her high school boyfriend, Joe Gonzalez, right after graduation, when she was only 18. With him, Sofia became a mom for the first time. She gave birth to her son Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll. Apparently, Sofia and Joe were too young to start a family and things soon got too complicated. Unlike her character, who isn’t afraid to use violence as a solution, Sofia is much more diplomatic. And so the separation with her husband was a calculated and calm solution. Sofia was left alone. For years she struggled with the life of a working single mother. She was also fighting cancer and helping her brother quit drugs. She did not have time for her personal life, but she needed support and wanted a father for her son. And finally, almost 10 years after divorce, she found the one. They met at the White House Correspondent's Dinner in DC. It was the "Magic Mike" actor, Joe Manganiello and he says he knew that Sofia was his soulmate. “[It’s] coming to grips with the idea that someone who is not related to you could possibly love you that much,” - the actress told US Magazine. This extremely good looking pair got together in 2014 and were engaged just six months later. When Sofia is asked to comment on her personal life she replies that she 'couldn't be happier'. The two are frequently snapping photos of their romance on social media and are even planning to star in a film together. Judging by their public love, the two seem to be perfect for each other. First, we knew Ed O’Neill as the funny actor from Married with Children. Now, we love him playing the patriarch of the Dunphy family. Despite trading in his older wife for a much younger one on Modern Family, Ed O’Neill has been married to his wife Catherine for 32 years! But it took O’Neill 13 years to give in to the idea of having kids with wife: Catherine was already 42 years old, when she finally gave birth to her first child. “At the beginning, I sort of reluctantly went along with it,” he told the New York Post. “As a favor to her, I was thinking. Then when we had the first one, I was like ‘Oh, my God, I’m in love.’” Although it was not always sunny for the two of them. The couple had been separated for some time but they got back together and currently live in Los Angeles, raising two wonderful daughters, and doing just fine. It’s hard to picture Julie Bowen, as Claire, married to anyone other than her hilarious on-screen husband Phil, yet she was married to software developer and businessman Scott Phillips for 13 years. In fact, in the pilot of Modern Family, Julie was heavily pregnant with twins and the production had to strategically place her behind objects to cover her stomach. On what makes a marriage successful, Bowen joked, “Honestly I only remember up until we had the kids. Then you’re like, ‘What?’ Twelve years. We’ve had children for nine. So I remember the first three years, the rest of it is like a blackout.” Seems that the blackout was not pleasant though, since after so many years, Julie filed for divorce and the couple decided to go their separate ways. In an interview, Julie joked about her marriage to Scott, saying that the pair were simply "too tired to do anything else!" and that is why they did not break up earlier. We hope Julie will find someone who will make her feel as happy as her onscreen husband does for Claire. Phil considers himself a “cool dad”, who often engaged in ridiculous activities with Luke, much to Claire’s dismay. In real life, Ty is less child-like and more of a calm and steady husband. He chose to marry the chef Holly Burrell. Together they managed to combine the best of both of their worlds, as in 2 years the couple will celebrate 20 years of mutual love. Holly is a professional chef and a really great one, according to Ty. "My wife, Holly, is an amazing cook, so everything around what I make tastes great," he told Us Weekly. Looks like the chef found her way to her husband`s heart through his stomach. The couple had adopted a baby girl, and two years later, they decided to adopt a second daughter. Today, this modern family is living happily together with their daughters Greta and Frances in the City of Angels. Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett Like many of the plot twists on the show, Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s real-life coming out story is equally embarrassing and hilarious. When the actor was a freshman in high school, he got caught by security at a bookstore attempting to shoplift some adult gay videos. “My mom and dad saw the nature of the material I was stealing, and that’s how I came out,” he says. Today he finds it a funny story, but back then, it was incredibly traumatizing. Thankfully, all this did not affect Jesse`s personal life. 6 years ago, Jesse got engaged to a lawyer, Justin Mikita, after dating for almost two years. When we first meet Ferguson’s character, he is just embarking on fatherhood for the first time. In last year`s interviews, the actor expressed an eagerness to become a father in real life. “Justin and I are very excited to become dads in the near future,” he told E! News. There has been no announcement yet, but we are expecting it any time soon. Eric Stonestreet portrays the funny and adorable teddy bear Cameron Tucker. Despite playing such an emotional gay character on Modern Family, Eric has a rather different personal life. Despite the fact that everyone thinks he is openly gay, in real life, after being in a long-term relationship with actress Katherine Tokarz, last year Eric admitted that he had found love again. Stonestreet started to date a pediatric nurse Lindsay Schweitzer and is madly in love with her. “She calms my nerves. I’m a very high-strung person,” he told Ellen Degeneres on her show. We don’t know if wedding bells will ring, but for now the couple is enjoying getting to know each other more. Seems that Eric chose to shun the high-profile Hollywood lifestyle and date someone a bit more down to earth. Haley was always the pretty, ditzy and rebellious one who cared a lot more about her appearance, rather than her studies. And the one, who always had these endless problems in her personal life. The real Hyland doesn’t deal with as many boyfriend issues. She is currently dating the reality star Wells Adams. He has appeared as a contestant on both The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. Sarah admitted the two started exchanging messages on social media, and she said “I thought he was funny, and he was a fan of [my] show.” After their first date, the two became inseparable and they are often seen posting romantic pictures on their social media profiles. As she told Jimmy Kimmel about her relationship with Wells: ‘This is really awesome.' We hope it will stay this way! Winter, who plays the brainiac Dunphy daughter, Alex, was just 11 years old when she was cast on Modern Family. During the early years of the show, Ariel had to deal with family issues and was growing from a girl into a woman — no easy task, especially in the spotlight. Ariel said her mother sexualized her, starting from the age of seven and would dress her 'in the smallest miniskirts, sailor suits, low-cut things, the shortest dresses ever.' "People thought I was 24 when I was 12." - Ariel said. I went through a really rough period, a really bad chapter,' Winter revealed and admitted she hasn’t spoken to her estranged mother in five years. Luckily, with the support of her on set friends and loved ones, she managed to overcome the hard times. Ariel might play a grounded nerd on TV, but her real life is quite the contrary. She has had lots of light affairs, but 2 years ago Ariel began dating actor Levi Meaden with whom she truly fell in love. The actor is almost 10 years older and seems to be successfully develping his career. You may recognize him from his role as the young son in the family apocalyptic thriller, "Aftermath". and he also appeared in Gabrielle Union's thriller "Breaking In" this year. After a turbulent life with her estranged mother, it seems that Meaden has finally given her some stability. On their one year anniversary, Winter gushed ” I’m the luckiest girl in the entire world.” She added that she is “the happiest I could’ve ever imagined.” We are happy for you too, Ariel! The majority of Modern Family fans will always think of Luke as the curly haired and mischievous kid, but in real life, he is all grown up. 18-year-old Nolan grew up right in front of our eyes and last year, he was already spotted on a date with a blonde. It was rumored that Nolan was dating Australian model Hannah Glasby after the two were seen out holding hands. Although neither of them have confirmed nor denied the relationship, it looks pretty obvious. Nolan also has a great relationship with his onscreen sis Alex. He and the actress Ariel Winter are not only close friends on the show. On his instagram, Nolan congratulated Ariel on her Birthday and thanked her for all the years they've spent together on Modern Family. He wrote: "So lucky to have shared this crazy experience with you for the past decade." adding: "Can't wait to see what the future holds!" Hm, perhaps the future will hold a romance between these two? We would love to see that! Benjamin Bratt as Javier Delgado The passionate colombian bad boy and ex-husband of Gloria is actually an American actor, who has dated A-list actresses, like Julia Roberts. The actress told Vanity Fair that they met in a restaurant in New York: "he walked in, and I looked up at him, and it was like something hit me over the head with a bat." A high-profile romance was born, but the two ended it after four years. Insiders claimed Bratt was ready to start a family and wanted Roberts to move from New York to his hometown of San Francisco but Roberts had other plans. It is not clear what really happened between the two, but their lives took different paths. But Bratt's dreams did come true with another actress, Talisa Soto. The couple got married in San Francisco after meeting on the set of the film Pinero. Since then, Bratt has wholeheartedly devoted himself to the role of husband and father. During the New York premiere of La Mission in 2009, he gushed about his family life. "We're going on our eighth year of our marriage and it feels like six months because we're so aligned," he said. In 2008, Bratt shared some heartbreaking news with fans. His then-5-year-old daughter, Sophia, had suffered a brain injury during her birth that left her with physical disabilities. Bratt gave up his career ambitions because he wanted to be a better father. It was hard for both the parents to deal with their daughter's struggles but working with therapists helped, and according to Bratt, Sophia now "understands everything, she's quick to laugh, she's loving and a physically beautiful child." And that is the most important thing for the actor right now. Check out these other great stories from OSSA and subscribe for new videos about your favorite stars!
