Eric Stonestreet: ‘Modern Family’ Is Showing America ‘You Don’t Have To Be A Man And A Woman To Give A Child A Home’

Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet — who plays one half of the gay couple Cam and Mitchell — told the ladies of The View this morning that he receives overwhelmingly positive feedback for the way the gay relationship is portrayed on the show. “Slowly but surely, I think Modern Family — and Cam and Mitch specifically — are having some impact on showing people that you don’t have to be a man and a woman to give a child a beautiful, wonderful, loving home,” he said. Stonestreet also thanked the hosts for allowing him to come out as straight and meet his girlfriend. Watch it:
