Jesse Tyler Ferguson's Childhood Photo Will Make You Go 'Aww'

Yep, that adorable smile and trademark red hair could only belong to Jesse Tyler Ferguson of "Modern Family" fame. The 37-year-old actor posted the childhood photo on his Twitter page Thursday, with the caption: "You guys, #ThrowbackThursday."

The Albuquerque, N.M., native began acting in children's theater before getting summer jobs as a "song and dance man" at a local amusement park as a teen.

"I also had side duties, one of which was circling around the amusement park in a golf cart making sure the bathrooms were clean." Ferguson told Alibi recently of the experience. "It wasn't the most glamorous job, but it was something I loved doing because I had the opportunity to be a swing dancer in the show."
