Ed O'Neill Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Modern Family star was flanked by both of his famous TV wives as he was honored for his work

One of television's most famous curmudgeonly husbands, Ed O'Neill, received the 2,446th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Tuesday -- and he was feted by both of his famous sitcom wives.

The Emmy-nominated actor, 65, stood arm-in-arm with his current primetime wife, Sofia Vergara, and his small-screen spouse of more than 10 years, Katey Sagal. And both actresses took to the podium to celebrate (and roast!) their friend and fictional husband.

"I want to tell Eddie he's one lucky mo-fo. Here he has these two beautiful women that he's had in his life. Hopefully he'll be able to have this one as long as he had me," said Sagal, 57, who played the bouffant-topped Peggy to O'Neill's Al Bundy on Married With Children. "It's rare that you get to spend 11 years with someone -- longer than you go to school, really -- and Ed and I have remained friends throughout the years."

Vergara, 39, who plays his much-younger Colombian wife Gloria on ABC's award-winning comedy Modern Family, recounted her girlhood memories of watching her costar on TV.

"When I was in Colombia and a young very beautiful girl, I would watch Married With Children and see Ed sitting with his hand in his pants and talking in this very sexy Antonio Banderas accent, because in Colombia it was dubbed into Spanish," Vergara said. "I would never in a million years have though that I would grow up to marry Al Bundy... But to marry Al Bundy has been one of the most joyful things in my life."
