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 Emmy-nominated star of Modern Family received his honour n a ceremony featuring his two TV wives, Sofia Vergara from Modern and Katey Sagal from Married.

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

Sofia is 26 years his junior, and Katey 11.

The 65-year-old actor taught social studies before his acting career.
