Ariel Winter may have a new beau in her life. Although the Modern Family actress just recently proclaimed herself to be “single AF” on Instagram, it looks like the Thanksgiving holiday may have sent love Winter’s way. Ariel had apparently been enjoying the single life of late — earlier this year, she split from her boyfriend of two years, Laurent Claude Gaudette. Is 18-year-old Winter ready to begin a new relationship?
From the looks of things, that may be very likely. Over Thanksgiving weekend, Ariel was out and about with actor Levi Meaden. Various news sources have published paparazzi photos of the pair kissing and holding hands. Winter and Meaden reportedly attended a friendly “Friendsgiving” bash held by Winter’s friend, Jack Griffo. Griffo is said to have broadcast part of the Thanksgiving party on Snapchat, calling out Ariel and Levi.
As reported by Us Weekly, Ariel Winter and Levi Meaden were spotted in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 26, getting up close and personal with each other. According to Us, Winter shared clips of her time with Meaden on her Instagram story. The mag reports that neither Ariel nor Levi have yet to “officially” share that status of their budding relationship. Meaden is Winter’s senior by 11 years — the actor is currently 29-years-old.
Mere months ago, Ariel flippantly declared her relationship status as “single AF” in a humorous Twitter update, which she duly shared on Instagram. The meme re-post was apparently Winter’s response to multiple media outlets’ claim of a relationship between Ariel and her longtime friend, Sterling Beaumon. While Beaumon may have missed the boat, it appears the tweet is now obsolete among Winter and Meaden’s Turkey Day love-fest.
E! News has Saturday’s snaps of Winter kissing Meaden. Per E!, Ariel Winter posted a Snapchat video about her post-Thanksgiving weekend with Levi Meaden. The two apparently wanted to view an exhibit on filmmaker Guillermo del Toro at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, but got rained out. Accordingly, Ariel shared on Snapchat her frustration with having parked her car too far away from the the sizable art museum.
“We came to LACMA to see the Guillermo de Toro exhibit and it was closed and now it’s pouring rain and we’re stuck in it and we parked far.”
In related Ariel Winter news, the actress recently talked with The Cut magazine about the Hollywood role models who helped her to accept her body. Recounting the influence of fellow Modern Family castmate, Sofia Vergara, Ariel spoke of the positive influence the elder actress had on her personal body confidence, and Vergara’s assistance in teaching Winter to tune out the media’s unscrupulous body shaming.
“Working with Sofia Vergara and growing up with her was great, because she was, you know, a really amazing, curvy role model for me. She helped me learn to accept the way I looked and love it and dress for it, and feel good about myself”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Ariel Winter also has a close relationship with her sister, actress Shanelle Workman, as evidenced by the matching tattoos the siblings recently received. In the same The Cut interview, Winter also credited Workman for helping her to become more confident.
“My sister was also amazing for me, because she was the type of person who would go to the grocery store in sandals and socks and pajamas, and would feel great about herself.”
Ariel Winter appears completely comfortable in her body these days. With her thriving entertainment career, curvy confidence, and an ostensible new boyfriend, the sky’s the limit for the young actress. Only time will tell what the future holds for the burgeoning attachment between Ariel Winter and Levi Meaden, but Ariel’s biggest fans hope the starlet makes the best of it in her professed new relationship.
