Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson is about to become a father, revealing that he and lawyer husband Justin Mikita are expecting their first child.

The Modern Family star shared the happy news during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday night.

"I’m actually expecting a baby in July with my husband,” he said.

“I’m very excited but it’s like, I’m 44 now, let’s get this show going," he laughed, adding: "Tik tock.”

Thankfully, it doesn't look like we'll be getting a gender-reveal video from the new dads-to-be.

“Do you know what you’re having?” Corden asked during their chat. “A boy or a girl?”

“A human,” Ferguson replied.
