Listen up, Modern Family fans.

On Wednesday, March 10's all-new Daily Pop, Jesse Tyler Ferguson sounded off on those Modern Family spinoff rumors. As E! News readers well know, it's been almost a year since we said goodbye to Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill) and his blended family. Thus, fans have been eager for news about a potential spinoff, specifically, one involving Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch (Ferguson).

Thankfully, Ferguson weighed in on the possibility of a Mitch and Cam-centric series. "Nothing is official," Ferguson told Daily Pop co-host Carissa Culiner and guest host Kym Whitley. "I have not been asked to do anything yet, so you know, it's being talked about, but I haven't heard anything official."

A discussion about a spinoff is better than nothing, right? Still, the TV and Broadway actor has kept himself busy following Modern Family's end. For starters, last July, he welcomed son Beckett with husband Justin Mikita.

On Beckett's latest milestone, Ferguson shared, "Right now, he's rolling around and it's not even a crawl, but like a really aggressive scoot."

And, from what Ferguson noted on Daily Pop, it appears he's really taken to fatherhood. "I honestly, I was really well prepared," he said on becoming a dad. "Everyone gave me a lot of conflicting advice, so I was ready for anything, so nothing surprises me—as of right now."


Ferguson's other baby? His new cookbook with Julie Tanous, titled Food Between Friends: A Cookbook. For a taste of what's featured in Food Between Friends, Ferguson whipped up his Pimento Cheese and Green Chili Roll-Ups.

He quipped, "I'm from New Mexico, so I put green chili in everything."
