Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet Engaged To Lindsay Schweitzer

Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet is engaged to his now-fiancée Lindsay Schweitzer!

“She said, ‘She’d have her people call my people,'” the Modern Family star, 49, captioned a series of photos boasting her ring after over five years of dating.

The two-time Emmy-winning actor began dating the pediatric nurse in 2017 after the two met at the Big Slick charity weekend in Kansas City in 2016.

And in a 2017 appearance on her talk show, Stonestreet praised his then-girlfriend Schweitzer to Ellen DeGeneres.

“Your girlfriend is lovely — I met her backstage,” said DeGeneres. “She’s a nurse. That’s a good thing for you, because you’re a hypochondriac.”

“I’m a big baby, too. She calms me — she calms my nerves. I’m a very high-strung person,” admitted Stonestreet.

“You can tell, right? What are you looking at, ma’am?!” he jokingly shouted at a woman in the audience before adding: “My nurse girlfriend will take care of you.”

“They are very happy to have met each other,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “They’re enjoying spending time together.”

Modern Family won a total of 22 Emmy awards for its first 10 seasons, from 75 nominations. It also won Outstanding Comedy Series five times, for its first five seasons. The series has also taken home Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series four times, twice each for Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell; Additionally, Julie Bowen has won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series twice. 

Since the comedy was wrapped with an hour-long documentary retrospective, followed by their two-part finale episode on April 8, many fans and crew members were sad to see the season come to an end.

Sofia Vergara opened up in a March interview with ET on how she and the rest of the Pritchett-Delgado-Dunphy-Tucker family said farewell the show, each other and all the beautiful stories they have made along th eway.

“Everybody was like, you know, either in a bad mood or we were, like, super sad crying,” she recalled. “It was about the family we created for 11 years, and I’m never gonna see them again like that. Some are people that are never gonna see again in my life, you know, crew members that we saw every day for 11 years. So that’s the sad part, the separation from those people.”
