Modern Family's Ed O'Neill receives Hollywood star

Wednesday August 31, 2011

US actor Ed O'Neill's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is appropriately placed: in front of a shoe shop on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Ed earned his fame playing shoe salesman Al Bundy on the long-running sitcom Married With Children.

The actor, 65, was joined by Katey Sagal, who portrayed his obnoxious wife, Peg, on the comedy Married ... With Children.

He was also joined by Sofia Vergara, his spouse, Gloria, on his current series, Modern Family, for the late-morning ceremony.

He called the honour overwhelming and thanked fans, quipping: "Just think, somewhere in this world a baby girl is being born and she is going to be my next wife."

The actor's fictional wives Sofia and Katey are 26 and 11 years his junior respectively.
