Romance rumors are swirling about “Modern Family” star Ariel Winter!
Earlier this week, Winter, 21, was photographed cozying up to “Dumplin’” actor Luke Benward, 24, who was seen wrapping his arm around her waist after spending a night at celeb hotspot Delilah in West Hollywood.
That same night, Ariel showed her support for Luke at his reading of “Really Really” at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute.
A source told E! News, “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. They took pictures together with his phone and posed with their faces together."
The eyewitness continued, “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.”
To fuel more rumors, Ariel and Luke posed together on the red carpet at the Lancôme x Vogue L’Absolu Ruby Holiday Event at Raspoutine last week.
In October, Us Weekly reported that Ariel and Levi Meaden called it quits after three years of dating. Around that time, Winter was seen having dinner with Luke in Studio City.
Months before their split, Winter gushed about Meaden, telling the outlet, “He’s a wonderful person. He’s always there for me… all the time. He’s always trying to make me feel good about myself, but also just to be there for me as a person, you know? Just as me, as Ariel. That’s hard to find, is people who just take you for you. The good, the bad, the ugly — everything.”
They were last seen together in August.
