Is The Modern Family Star Eric Stonestreet A Gay In Real Life?

Although Eric Stonestreet portrays a role of gay character with conviction in Modern Family, in real life, he prefers woman to romance with, and he shared his sexual preference as,

‘I kind of always felt like I had to dig myself out of a bit of a hole and let girls know that I'm actually straight.'

Eric, who is yet to lead a married life with a wife, has moved on from a relationship to another in search of a perfect life partner. 

People recently confirmed that Eric was dating a pediatric nurse Lindsay Schweitzer in August this year. The actor began dating his new girlfriend after meeting her during the Big Slick charity weekend in Kansas City.

A month later after the revelation, Eric also gushed over Lindsay and told that she is the one who calms him. It was during his appearance on Wednesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show that the star opened about his blossoming romance.

In the interview, Eric confessed and said,

“I’m a big baby, too. She calms me — she calms my nerves. I’m a very high-strung person.”

Besides Lindsay, Eric was previously linked with Bethenny Frankel in 2015, who is best known for The Real Housewives of New York and her brand Skinnygirl.

However, the couple's denial of a romantic relationship suggested that there was nothing in between them, although they made several public appearances in New York.

Further before, Eric had been in a relationship with Broadway star Katherine Tokarz, whom he met in 2009 while Katherine was performing at Rock of Ages. But the relationship could not survive beyond three years and suffered a split in 2012.
