Modern Family star Ariel Winter (17) puts family drama behind her with sweet prom photos
Modern Family star Ariel Winter might be on the biggest comedy on air, but she's still a normal teenager at heart.
The actress, who plays Alex Dunphy on the hit American series, has two SAG Awards under her belt, but relished her time away from the spotlight
at her prom this week.
The 17-year-old brought boyfriend Laurent Claude Gaudette as her date, while her father Glenn Workman was on hand to send her off for the evening.
Ariel found her private family life in the public forum in 2012 when her sister Shanelle Grey (35) was awarded custody of her little sister, over her mother Chrisoula Workman.
"My sister is who I look up to the absolute most in my life — she’s extremely powerful and intelligent. She’s been through a lot in her life, as have I, and she’s smart, giving, caring, and loving," Ariel said in 2014.
While her father was said to support the decision, he expressed no desire to fight for custody of his teenage daughter and the two have clearly buried the hatchet.
It looks like her family drama is in the past though and she was beaming in the photos, where she opted for a black lace fitted dress, saying she was looking forward to "normal" teenage activities away from Hollywood.
"I've always wanted to go to a school dance...I hope I get asked," she said in 2013.
