Ariel Winter, 22, and Luke Benward, 25, are enjoying their time in quarantine because they’re together and Ariel is especially counting her lucky stars when it comes to her beau. Like many others, the Modern Family actress is awaiting the self-isolation that was brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic to be over but her boyfriend has been making her time at home so much better and doing “nothing” has turned out to be great for them.
“Ariel doesn’t know how she could have handled all this [COVID-19} without Luke,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “He’s her rock, any time she is down he knows exactly how to make her feel better. He’s so much more than just a boyfriend to her, he really is her best friend. They can spend hours just doing nothing and it’s fun because they’re together. And she loves hanging out with his family too, she’s very close to them too. Of course, just like everyone else, Ariel is getting antsy. She and Luke had a lot of travel plans that had to be put on hold. They both really want to go somewhere amazing with all their friends as soon as they can.”
Although Ariel and Ben have been staying home for the most part, they are also making sure to get some fresh air whenever they can on various outings such as trips to the grocery store or other essential places. They were most recently spotted out while going to the post office together and they were all smiles while walking beside each other. At one point, they even leaned in for a sweet kiss.
In addition to public sightings, the lovebirds have been sharing some memorable quarantine moments on social media either through friends’ posts or their own. Luke celebrated his 25th birthday on May 12th by standing outside with Ariel as many of his friends drove by to wish him well since the coronavirus has stopped gatherings of 10 people or more in the state of California, where Luke lives. One of Luke’s friends shared a cute video that showed the birthday boy and his lady love cheering with all smiles as the friend drove up to greet him.
