Trolls Said That "Modern Family" Star Eric Stonestreet Was Too Old For His Fiancé, And He Had A Hilarious Response
"She can’t help that she looks so great at 42 and I can’t help that I apparently look like her granddad."
Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet just got engaged!
Eric and his fiancé, nurse Lindsay Schweitzer, have been together for over five years and met at the Big Slick charity weekend in Kansas City, Missouri. Isn't that nice?
Although the comments were largely full of congratulations (including from some familiar faces), a couple of people made comments accusing Lindsay of being too young for Eric.
However, there's just one thing: Eric is 49 and Lindsay is 41, meaning that there's only an eight-year age gap between the two.
So Eric returned to Instagram to address the comments — by editing the original pics to make Lindsay look a touch older.
"Apparently a lot of people think I look too old, as a 49 year old man, to be engaged to my almost 42 year old fiancé," Eric wrote in the caption.
"Look, she can’t help that she looks so great at 42 and I can’t help that I apparently look like her grandad [sic] so, I fixed it for everyone."
Well played, Eric. Well played.
Congrats again to the happy couple!
