Modern Family star Jesse Tyler took to Instagram on Thursday to wish his "fake sister", actress Julie Bowen, a happy birthday with a tribute on social media. The 46-year-old actor shared an image with his 3.3 million Instagram followers which showed him posing with his on-screen sister "Claire Dunphy".

"Happy birthday to my beautiful friend and fake sister," the Modern Family alum wrote on Instagram and tagged his long-time pal. Julie Bowen turned 52 on March 3, having been born in 1970 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

Julie's on-screen daughter Sarah Hyland also took to her Instagram Stories to share a sweet image with the actress. She wrote, "Happy Birthday Mama" and added "I love you" and tagged Julie in the post.

While her co-stars celebrated her birthday on Instagram, the now 52-year-old actress seemed to keep things low key, choosing to use her platform to share information about the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia, instead.
