Ed O’Neill & His Hollywood Stars

Ed O’Neill received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during a ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard on Tuesday (August 30). Ed was joined by his wife Catherine and their two daughters Sophia and Claire. Also in attendance was Ed’s on-screen loves – his Modern Family wife, Sofia Vergara (a.k.a. Gloria Delgado-Pritchett), and his Married… with Children wife, Katey Sagal (a.k.a. the fabulous Peggy Bundy).

The 65-year-old iconic sitcom star said his daughter encouraged him to accept this great honor.

One day my manager called and said, ‘They want to give you a star,’ and I said, ‘Why? […] I almost turned it down. I never liked the idea of it. It’s bizarre – names on a sidewalk. People can spit on it. I thought it was kind of weird. But I mentioned it to my daughter, who is 11, and she said, ‘Daddy, you have to get your star. If you don’t, that means you’re crazy.’ That did it. I was actually very humbled, once I got over the initial shock and realized it’s something to be proud of.”

    Ed’s real wife is part African American and Jewish and it’s cute to see him with his two TV wives as well.

    So his real life is not too far off from his “Modern Family” life. =)
