Could there be an (on-screen) wedding in their future?

Modern Family stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, who play partners Mitchell and Cameron on the Emmy-winning ABC comedy, posted a photo of themselves on their WhoSay pages, asking, "How could you not want to see us tie the knot?" just as it appeared they may be closer to legally being able to do so.

On Tuesday, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that California's Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage in the state, was unconstitutional.



Ferguson also Tweeted: "Historic! #Prop8 is unconstitutional. @AFER & I won’t stop until ALL Americans are #free2marry."

On the show, their characters also have a daughter together, Lily, but are not officially married.

Other stars reacted to the ruling, as well.

Ellen DeGeneres Tweeted, "Today we took another step towards equality. #Prop8 was found unconstitutional again. I couldn't be happier." And Ugly Betty's Michael Urie Tweeted, "Take THAT, prop 8."
