Some actors on TV shows tend to get more attention than others. Even though Cam is a beloved member of the Pritchett-Dunphy clan, the man who brings the character to life is less well-known than costars like Julie Bowen (Claire) and Sarah Hyland (Haley). Let’s fix that, shall we? So, is Eric Stonestreet married? Here’s what you need to know about real-life Cam’s relationship status.
Though Cam is married to Mitchell on the show, Eric Stonestreet is heterosexual and has joked in good humor that in real life he’s “openly straight.” His co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays his husband Mitchell on the hit sitcom, has also made light-hearted jokes about the difference between Stonestreet’s love life on- and off-screen, saying Stonestreet is “gay-for-pay.” We know it’s hard to imagine Cam with anyone else but Mitchell, but here’s what you need to know about the actor, from is Eric Stonestreet married, to who is Eric Stonestreet’s wife.
Is Eric Stonestreet married, and if so, who is his wife?
So, is Eric Stonestreet married? Sorry, there’s no Eric Stonestreet wife, yet, but the actor is dating someone. Back in 2017, the 46-year-old Emmy winner attended the Big Slick charity weekend in Kansas City. The charity isn’t the only good that came out of the event. Eric Stonestreet also met a pediatric nurse named Lindsay Schweitzer, who he started dating after the event according to a report from People.
Stonestreet later opened up about the special woman in his life. When he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September of last year, he couldn’t resist talking about the new leading lady in his life in addition to the upcoming tenth, and likely final, season of Modern Family. “She's lovely, I met her backstage and she's a nurse,” Ellen said. “That's a good thing for you as you're a hypochondriac.”
“And I'm a big baby, too,' Stonestreet quipped. “She calms me, she calms my nerves. I'm a very high-strung person, you can tell right?” You can watch the conversation in the clip below:
