On Sunday, Ferguson's husband Justin Mikita shared a sweet snap on Instagram of the Modern Family actor, 44, gently burping the couple's new baby, Beckett Mercer.

In the photo, Ferguson smiled to the camera while tending to his 7-week-old son, whose face was turned away from the camera.

"The new normal 👶🏻 🍼 💩," Mikita, 34, captioned the father-son shot.

Several days after Beckett's birth, Mikita shared a photo of a onesie from the Las Vegas hospital where their son was born, writing on Instagram, "It’s Beckett, B----! “Thanks to the incredible team at Summerlin hospital - especially Collette. Thanks for taking care of us. Welcome to the world, Beckett Mercer. We love you more than I could’ve ever dreamed of.”

"Thanks for all the messages and congratulations,” the lawyer added. “We are over the moon.”

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 did not reveal the sex of his child at the time, 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."
