On Sunday Eric Stonestreet shared his weightier news yet: he and longtime girlfriend Lindsay Schweitzer are getting married!
The Modern Family star shared a series of pics of the couple post-popping the question, with Lindsay sporting an uncommonly large but still swish diamond engagement ring. Both the former Cam and his future wife looked completely elated, much to the welter of friends and co-stars.
Unfortunately, we guess not all the responses were quite so sweet. Theoretically over the past few days Eric has seen some nasty trolling comments well-nigh the age gap between him and his new fiancée.

In a new post, he blasted the criticism in two ways. First, he pointed out there isn’t much of a disparity between their month at all. He’s 49, and she’s 42. We’re not exactly talking Scott Disick numbers here. Taking to Instagram then on Wednesday evening, he wrote:
“Apparently a lot of people think I squint too old, as a 49 year old man, to be engaged to my scrutinizingly 42 year old fiancé.”
As for everyone’s perception over their looks? Well, thankfully the sitcom vet has just as much of sense of humor well-nigh himself as you’d expect! He joked:
“Look, she can’t help that she looks so unconfined at 42 and I can’t help that I theoretically squint like her grandad so, I stock-still it for everyone.”
How did he fix it? Oh, he put them through one of those old filters. Well, we should say he put her through one. The result is, well, hopefully unbearable to make people second-guess their gut reactions to seeing them together!
Ch-ch-check out the hilarious “solution” below!
Ha! Our favorite part there is the hashtag where he pointed out “she said yes to this.” So take that, haters!
BTW does anyone else think weather-beaten up Lindsay looks kind of like Beth Grant?
Ariel Winter certainly was still into Eric’s future wifey, or as she calls her “the QUEEN.” She responded to the new pic:
Others wrote on the post:
“You are both perfect the way you are. I love the way you both squint and most important. LOVE EACH OTHER Who cares what people think.”
“You squint unconfined without any filters! Congratulations,”
“Why do people finger the need to make those comments. I love your response congrats”
“Hahaha. Screw them. So happy for you both !!!
The couple met when in 2016 at the Big Slick soft-heartedness weekend in Kansas City, which Eric co-hosts with fellow comedians Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, Rob Riggle, and David Koechner. Clearly Lindsay saw how superstitious the Modern Family star is and not that he was… doing math… seven years older.
REALLY?! That’s all y’all were worried about? SEVEN YEARS?? Y’all heard of Gavin Rossdale ffs??
Anyway, congrats, Eric and Lindsay! Y’all squint unconfined at any age! Go be happy!
