Eric Stonestreet Hilariously Responds to Comments That He’s “Too Old” to Be Engaged to Fiancée Lindsay Schweitzer

Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet recently announced his engagement to Lindsay Schweitzer.  The actor shared a series of photos on Instagram saying, “She said, “She’d have her people call my people.”

After fans left comments saying that he looked “too old” to be her fiancé, Eric responded by sharing new versions of the same photos…but this time he added wrinkles to his fiancé! He captioned the post, “Apparently a lot of people think I look too old, as a 49 year old man, to be engaged to my almost 42 year old fiancé. Look, she can’t help that she looks so great at 42 and I can’t help that I apparently look like her grandad so, I fixed it for everyone.”

Eric’s on-screen spouse and co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson commented on the post saying, “I assume these are the same people who love Jay & Gloria’s relationship…Which is where YOU got the idea of having a younger spouse right?”

Eric and Lindsay, a pediatric nurse, started dating after meeting at a Kansas City charity event in June 2016, according to People.
