There is no better way to build a relationship than to be friends with someone first. This is the case for Ariel Winter and Luke Benward . The 21-year-old Modern Family star broke up with his three-year-old friend Levi Meaden four months ago. Now she was seen on the PDA on the date with the handsome 24-year-old Dumplin star. The two were friends and now it has become a romance between the two.
“Ariel had never expected Luke to develop romantic feelings, but things have unexpectedly changed very slowly between them in the past few months. Ariel had been so close friends with Luke for years and never considered him anything other than a friend, ”says a source HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVE.
“But after she broke up with Levi, Luke was really there for Ariel and she could lean on him to get support. Things just shifted and it happened very organically. Neither of them had expected it, but it was just like that. Ariel still has very good relationships with Levi, but she is open to seeing where things are going with Luke, ”the insider continues.

She loves spending time with him and is very interested to see where everything is going, ”a second source tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “She takes things the way they come and looks forward to spending the holidays with him and seeing what could become of them. As far as it seems, everything will work between the two. All of her friends can see that she is pretty happy with everything that makes her happy. "
