“Modern Family” star Ariel Winter seems to have officially found a new man. She has been dating actor Luke Benward since last month, according to Us Weekly. The new relationship comes just a few months after her split from Levi Meaden.
“Ariel is really happy with Luke and thinks he is a great match for her,” a source told the outlet. “She loves his energy and charisma and feels very comfortable around him. Ariel is trying to keep her relationship with Luke somewhat private and isn’t telling a ton of people that they’re dating, but they are.”
The couple were first spotted out together in December at Delilah in West Hollywood.
“It was very clear they are a couple and they were affectionate all night long. They had their arms wrapped around each other and he put his hand on her waist,” a source told E! News at the time. “They took pictures together with his phone and posed with their faces together. They came out [of Delilah] around 1:45 a.m. and stood rubbing each other’s backs as they waited for their car. They never took their hands off of each other.”
The two were also spotted together at the Golden Globes afterparty on Sunday, according to Entertainment Tonight:
Ariel Winter attended the event in a neon green gown with her rumored new boyfriend, Luke Benward. She was spotted introducing him to three of her female friends. Luke seemed a bit shy, but according to the eyewitness, Winter “seems really happy” in this new relationship.
On Sunday, Winter posted a series of photos on her Instagram account of herself. “Felt cute today ☺️? NOT as cute as baby yoda but that’s okay because that amount of cute is UNOBTAINABLE,” she wrote.
Benward chimed in, saying, “Told ya, you wayyyyyy cuter.”
Aside from commenting on each other’s posts, neither party has made things official on social media.
