Ariel Winter is getting her backside squeezed while turning 23 in tight pants. The “Modern Family” actress, who turned 22 in a headline-making cowgirl look last year, updated her Instagram ahead of the weekend to mark her birthday, revealing everything from her low-key home celebration and ongoing romance with boyfriend Luke Benward, to the fact that her Christmas tree is still up at the end of January. Ariel’s photos came with the ABC face looking drop-dead gorgeous, and it looked like the boyfriend agreed. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. The above one marked Winter turning 22 and showing off the 30 pounds she’d dropped. Last night, the “Don’t Log Off” star posted with her “Game of Thrones”-inspired blonde hair and from her L.A. home, opening holding a giant set of pink and blue balloons spelling out “23.”
Ariel, who did seem to be clinging onto Christmas with her festive tree behind her, sent out casual birthday vibes in tight gray yoga pants, a simple black hoodie, plus, with a swipe to the right, cozy socks.
A swipe to the right took things outdoors, where it looked like boyfriend Luke had prepared an impromptu picnic for his girlfriend. It was more smooching than food, though, with the couple throwing out a massive kiss and actor Luke cheekily grabbing Ariel’s peach. The picnic spread, meanwhile, flew the flag for basic with bread and Cheetos, plus what looked like a pretty abandoned and open ham sandwich.
“23 and felling loved and grateful,” Ariel wrote for a total 340,000+ likes overnight.
Ariel’s final photo, a stunning couch selfie, showed her with one of her many dogs. The photos come shortly after Winter made headlines for flaunting her massive Yodas in an unzipped PJ onesie while basically calling 2021 a sh-tshow.
“What we dreamed 2021 would be vs. the sh-tshow 2021 turned out to be ? and somehow my freckles are really out here even though I literally haven’t been in the sun for what feels like forever sooooooo ??♀️?? #2021,” the actress wrote. More photos below!
Ariel made headlines in early 2019 for revealing she was down 30 pounds, but not how you’d think. The girl behind Alex Dunphy dropped the weight by switching her anti-depressant medication, last year telling Teen Vogue:
“A lot of people commented on my post like, ‘No, she changed her antidepressant because she wanted to lose weight,’” adding:“No! I thought every medication I was on, I was going to stay at that weight, and that was fine. It had nothing to do with that.”
