Ferguson, 44, and Mikita welcomed Beckett, their first child together, on Tuesday, a rep for Ferguson confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE.

"Jesse and Justin welcomed their little bundle of joy Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita on July 7, 2020," the rep said. "The new parents are overjoyed and excited for this new journey as a family of three."

In January, Ferguson shared that he and Mikita were expecting during a The Late Late Show appearance, telling host James Corden and fellow guest Charlie Hunnam, "This is something I haven't even mentioned to anyone, if we could just keep it between the three of us and you all, but I'm actually expecting a baby in July with my husband."

Ferguson — who recently wrapped the final season of his long-running comedy series Modern Family — did not reveal the sex of his child, only jokingly confirming that the baby would be "human."

"I'm very excited, but it feels like I'm 44 now, let's get this show going," he added. "Tick tock."

In February, Ferguson and Mikita celebrated their little one on the way at an epic baby shower that included lavish poolside decorations and a performance by the Aquawillies — a group of male synchronized swimmers.

Modern Family stars Sarah Hyland and Sofía Vergara were part of the star-studded guest list, which also included Betty Who, Jen Atkin, Lisa Rinna and Broadway actress Shoshana Bean, who serenaded the happy couple. The theme of the bash was "S— Just Got Real."
