Every member of 'Modern family' is dear to the diehard fans, especially the children. Ariel Winter, for example, grew up from being a smart, geeky younger sister to a smart, sexy woman right on our TV screens.
Winter will be celebrating her birthday on 28 January and this year she is turning 17. Lest anyone forgot, she reminded with a tweet on 21 January 2015: "My birthday is exactly a week away!"
Birthday wishes have been pouring in from her 'Modern Family' members. Both her T V brother and sister posted a photo of the would-be 17-year-old next to a huge chocolate cake on their Instagram profiles.
Nolan Gould, who plays Luke Dunphy, brother of Winter's character Alex posted, "I want to wish a very happy seventeenth birthday to a close friend, fellow castmate, and my big TV sister @arielwinter. It's been an amazing experience spending these six seasons with you. I hope you have a wonderful birthday. Love ya :)"
Sarah Hyland, who plays her sister Haley Dunphy, wished, "Happy "early" 17th birthday to my fake little sister @arielwinter. It's been 6 years now and I love you with all my heart. You're old now so it's like whatever ;)"
The love between the cast-mates is quite evident from their interaction on social networks. Two months ago, when Hyland had turned 24, Winter had wished her, "Happy 24th birthday to this beautiful TV sister of mine! I'm so grateful to be lucky enough to have you to work and share these past 6 years with. I love you and I hope you have a day as amazing as you are " along with a photo of the duo in scuba diving costumes.
