On Sunday, August 22, the actor took to the 'gram to share his engagement to girlfriend Lindsay Schweitzer. "She said, 'She'd have her people call my people,'" Stonestreet joked as he channeled his best Cameron Tucker in 3 different shots. Which, well, would we expect anything else?

In case you forgot, the happy couple has actually been going steady for about 3 years now. According to the Daily Mail, Stonestreet first linked up with the pediatric nurse at a place very near and dear to his heart: his Big Slick Celebrity Weekend fundraiser in Kansas City. But Lindsay's not the only one to win over his heart over the years...

But before crossing paths with the love of his life, the Modern Family star was busy getting cozy with another lucky lady – someone whose family you’ve also been following for years now: Bethenny Frankel. Yes, really. The Real Housewives Of New York star was allegedly dating Stonestreet back in 2015. Never saw that one coming, huh?

Of course, though, we all know how that story ends. "I mean, we met and I think we both decided that we make much better friends," the actor eventually came clean in an interview with Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. But that's not all he said. "She's a wonderful kisser," he slyly added. Consider us intrigued...

And while we can't quite imagine the 2 locking lips, we're happy to see that Eric's since found his perfect match. "She calms me, she calms my nerves," the star revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show of his bride-to-be. "I'm a very high-strung person, you can tell right?" Safe to say, these two were practically made for each other (sorry, Mitchell). And we can't wait to tag along on their next chapter.

Until then, stay tuned. And congratulations to the happy couple!
