Luke Benward, a Disney star, and Ariel Winter, his girlfriend, have been together for almost two years, and their union is the definition of “couple goals.”
But the romance didn’t begin until a few weeks after Winter split from her longtime partner and Modern Family co-star Levi Meaden. After that, she was seen kissing her current love, and since since, the two have appeared to be inseparable.
Similar to how Benward romanced Cruel Summer actress Olivia Holt before dating Winter, the two met while Benward was filming Disney’s Girl Vs. Monster. Before their separation in late 2017, the ex-couple was referred to in some circles as Disney couples.
