Scroll for the photos. Ariel, first linked to Benward in late 2019 following her split from Levi Meaden, is now all loved-up with her new indie movie co-star. The girl behind Alex Dunphy, sharing a photo-heavy batch of images on Wednesday, opened with a hugging snap amid teak wood greenery. Winter was stunning, showing off the 30 pounds she dropped in 2019, plus her 2020-debuted blonde hair, with fans seeing her slender frame in a floral pattern sundress as she snuggled with her beau.

"Happy 26th to the most special man that gives me alllllllll the feels allllllllllll the time😍 I love you. I am beyond grateful for you," she opened, adding that she felt so "grateful" to have Luke.

The blonde added that working through the "tough days" was as much a part of her relationship as enjoying easier times, continuing: "You’ve been my safe space and guiding light through all of the tough days this past year— thankful doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel❤."

"Obviously you are ridiculously handsome, but how ridiculously caring, smart, funny, empathetic, kind, talented and devoted you are to who and what you love is the most attractive."

'Thank You For Being You'

Ariel, who tends to keep her captions shot and went with only "Vaccinated vibes" in her last post, closed: "Thank you for being YOU— the amazing man you are to me + 🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶❤️ Poohexers for life!" 

The star has been enjoying working alongside her boyfriend in quarantine-set movie Don't Log Off, the actress' first major project since the ABC sitcom she grew up on ended last year. April 2020 marked Modern Family wrapping up after 11 years on air. Ariel today snagged over 100,000 likes in under 45 minutes.
