However, Jesse does credit his “Modern Family” co-star Julie Bowen, who played his sister on the show, with helping him navigate the early days of parenting. He told JHud that Julie gave him lots of guidance about juggling work and kids.
“I’m a new dad, and she has kids who are teenagers now,” he said. “She’s been doing this a lot longer than I have, so I just take whatever advice she gives me.”
Julie happened to be Jesse’s first guest on his new podcast “Dinner’s On Me,” which features long conversations between Jesse and a celebrity guest chatting about anything and everything over dinner.
Besides Julie, the podcast’s debut season features conversations with Kristen Bell, Jesse Williams, Fred Armisen, and Niecy Nash-Betts.
“It’s basically me taking friends of mine out to dinner,” he explained. “You really let your guard down when you’re sitting at a meal. That’s what I really wanted to do — have more nuanced long-form conversations with people I already adore so much.”
