Jesse Tyler Ferguson and boyfriend Justin Mikita have all the trappings of modern love: they travel together, share a home and have a dog. Is a real baby next?
"They say a dog is a starter baby," Ferguson told PEOPLE at the New Yorker party on the rooftop of Washington, D.C.'s W Hotel. "We obviously both want kids, but we're happy with the three of us for a while."
Besides, the puppy – a Morkie named Leaf, who turns 1 in July – is proving to be quite enough to handle.

It's a familiar motif of the awards season speech: The winner steps up to the podium and tells the kids at home that they should be asleep, not watching TV.
That was just the plan for Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who told Ryan Seacrest on the Golden Globes red carpet that he had a message for one of his little ones – Morkie pup, Leaf.
"You be good, Leaf, and go to bed," Ferguson said. "That's what I'm going to say when I win. Oh wait – I wasn't nominated."

It's been a big year for Jesse Tyler Ferguson: his hit show Modern Family continues to sweep award shows, he's found love, and he was just named OUT100's "Artist of the Year."
Of the honor, Ferguson joked to OUT100: "Jane Lynch must have said, 'I don't want it this year, stop showering me with praise, please give it to someone else.' And I was, like, fourth on the Someone Else list."
Ferguson, 36, may be modest, but he also realizes how lucky he is to be part of such a popular and admired series.

At Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, Modern Family fans will have their eyes on breakout star Jesse Tyler Ferguson – and his hot date, lawyer Justin Mikita. (Once they stop gawking at Sofia Vergara, of course!)
The new couple have been hitting the awards show circuit – and the town – together as of late, and releasing a steady stream of smitten photos via Twitter.
The actor, 35, brought Mikita, 25, to an Elle Women in TV event Thursday night and then to Entertainment Weekly's bash at the Chateau Marmont Saturday night, where they hung out together outside for 15 minutes before joining the party.
