It's Been Almost 13 Years Since "Modern Family" Came Out, So Here's A Look At The Cast Then Vs. Now

·3 min read

Over the weekend, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet — who famously played Mitch and Cam on Modern Family for 11 seasons — reunited, and I didn't expect for it to warm my heart as much as it did?

It got me thinking about what the rest of the cast has been up to, so I decided to look back on their very first red carpets compared to their most recent ones. Where the heck does the time go?! Let's start with the kids:
