What a way to celebrate! 19-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter adorably shared a moment from her anniversary celebration with boyfriend Levi Meaden on Instagram. The couple not only spent their time together, but also with a giraffe named Stanley! “[Nine] months starting off on a night shoot with Stanley,” Ariel captioned the photo of herself and her 29-year-old actor beau.
Fans were shocked back in May when the teen revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she was living with her boyfriend in her $1.5 million house in Los Angeles. The Modern Family star, who has been outspoken about getting a breast reduction, even said that she splits responsibilities with Levi around the house.
“My boyfriend and I live together and he cooks,” she revealed. “I can’t cook at all. He takes care of all that handy stuff. He’s great. He does all that. I can bake pies occasionally, pumpkin and apple.”
But living with her boyfriend who is 10 years older than her doesn’t seem like such a big deal to the actress. Back in April, she explained why it makes sense for her to be dating older men in an interview with Maxim.
“I grew up a lot earlier than I should have, and I’m only 19 but it feels like I’m a lot older,” she said. “I needed somebody who had a lot of life experience and who was at a point in their lives that they could take care of another person, but where I didn’t have to take care of them.”
