Keep reading to see who Ariel Winters has dated and if she’s dating anyone right now.
Callan McAuliffe (2011)
Early in her Modern Family career, 13-year-old Ariel Winter was rumored to be hooking up with 16-year-old Australian actor Callan McAuliffe from I Am Number Four. The two were spotted at several red carpet events together and even arm-in-arm at the 2011 Primetime Emmy Writers Nominee Reception. Although it was never confirmed the two were officially dating.
Cameron Palatas (2012-2013)
In the midst of a court battle with her mother, 14-year-old Ariel dated 18-year-old Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous actor Cameron Palatas. At the peak of her career, Ariel was dealing with allegations of her mother being abusive and was removed from her home. Court documents had surfaced that her mother, Chrisoula Workman, provided a stable home and that Cameron was the problem. Workman filed a police report against Palatas before the breakup stating she “walked in the guest bedroom of her home and found her daughter, Ariel Winter Workman, in bed with boyfriend, Cameron Lewis Palatas.” Chrisoula attempted to break them up due to the age difference.
Laurent Gaudette (2013-2016)
In 2013, Ariel met Laurent Gaudette while in high school, making the first move. It was as if it was true love. After honoring their first anniversary in October 2014, Laurent recalled the day he asked Ariel to be his girlfriend, with the story being something straight out of a movie. Just a couple of months later, the pair rang in 2015 at Disney World. The week after Ariel’s 17th birthday that February, the pair went to the winter formal together, taking pictures in the photo booth. In August 2015, Ariel and Laurent made their first official red carpet debut at a party hosted by the website Just Jared. Laurent supported Ariel at the Emmys the following month when Modern Family was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series. Celebrating two years together just a few weeks later, Ariel wrote a long and heartfelt note, expressing her feelings for Laurent. Every fairytale must come to an end when Ariel and Laurent split in December 2015. She jokingly confirmed the news with a “Single Ladies” meme on Instagram and later posted an inspiring post about moving forward in a healthy way.
It didn’t last long when the two were spotted together after the New Year running errands. In March, Ariel talked to reporters about her relationship with Laurent and said, “We love each other, so we are obviously meant to be together.” However, in May, Ariel attended prom solo, posting an Instagram flipping off cameras, captioning it with a Beyoncé lyric about a no-good guy. Us Weekly reported the two unfollowed each other on Instagram in June and Laurent was absent from Ariel’s graduation party. Weeks later, Ariel confirmed she was single, posting a Kim Kardashian gif on Twitter, with the caption “I’m like dropping hints that I’m single.”
Levi Meaden (2016-Present)
Despite the big age difference, 21-year-old Ariel Winter is currently dating 31-year-old Breaking In actor Levi Meaden. First meeting at Catch LA in October 2016, the two moved in together in 2017. Ariel defended herself when the move happened, saying she’s happy and doesn’t care what people say. Recently, they celebrated Ariel’s 21st birthday at a bash in Las Vegas. Ariel is constantly defending the fact she’s with someone who is 10 years older than her, but they both seem happy and in love.
