It was quite a day on the sets of “Modern Family” Season 7, with all attention focus on everyone’s favorite Ariel Winter. Contrary to rumors, Ariel isn’t leaving the show, rather she was ringing in her 18th birthday with her “Modern Family” members.
As noted by EOnline, the cast and crew of “Modern Family” surprised Winter with a birthday cake. Sofia Vergara’s post on Instagram read “Happy bday @arielwinter,” with a cute picture of Ariel Winter blowing out the candles.
All her co-stars took to their social media pages to share much love and wish for the talented actress. Now who wouldn’t like to work on their 18th birthday when they are spending all the time laughing with their very adorable on-screen family.
Eric Stonestreet tweeted to Ariel Winter, “Happy birthday to the sweet, adorable and wildly talented @arielwinter. My promise to have Ed O’Neill crush anyone who hurts you remains.”

Ariel’s on-screen sister, Sarah Hyland also took to her Instagram page and shared more love with a beautiful picture and a caption, making fans realize that time has indeed flown by. It feels like it was just yesterday that the pilot episode was released. (Yes? No?)
Looks like we just agreed with “Modern Family” casting director Jeff Greenberg, who also wished the birthday girl.
