Did Modern Family’s Ariel Winter break up with her boyfriend, Laurent Gaudette?
Winter hinted on a possible break-up with Gaudette in a series of Instagram posts earlier this week.
“Start of a new week, start of a new chapter #dancinglikebeyoncemood,” she wrote alongside a photo from Beyoncé's “Single Ladies” music video.
In another Instagram post, the 17-year-old actress shared a photo of herself in a black dress with the caption: “Love doesn't die, it simply evolves. We grow up, we realize what we truly want,” she wrote, adding that she is looking forward to the next chapter of her love life. “I'm excited for this new chapter in my love life – love is all around.. Family, friends, pizza... The old and the new.”
Last Thursday, Ariel Winter shared an Abraham Maslow quote about moving forward with her 1.3 million Instagram followers.
Fans were surprised to learn that the actress had broken with Lauren, who just celebrated his 18th birthday with the Modern Family star this past summer. Winter wrote a sweet birthday message for Gaudette, whom she used to call her “Shmoo,” saying she hopes to keep him forever.
