Your favorite gay dad from Modern Family, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, just underwent a serious operation for skin cancer on his face, but seems to be in good spirits about it.

Check out Season 7's promo for Modern Family below:

Yesterday, Jesse Tyler, who plays lawyer Mitch on the ABC show, posted a photo on Instagram with his face bandaged up after doctors removed skin cancer from his face.

The 40-year-old joked in his caption that his latest surgery might prove a small problem for the hair and makeup staff on the Modern Family set, which is now in its 7th season.

His Instagram followers rushed in with hundreds of get-well wishes:

A few recognized the similarity between Jesse's post and Van Gogh's 'Self Portrait With Bandaged Ear.'

Considering Jesse's light hearted approach with the post anyway, we're sure he'd respond positively to the harmless teasing as it's clear people are just happy to see that he is okay.

What do you think?

Seriously though, it is good to hear that Jesse is on the road to a full recovery and will be able to continue with filming for Modern Family.
