Ariel Winter has come a long way since she started on Modern Family back in 2009, but she’s not forgetting her roots. The 18-year-old took to Instagram on Monday to wish her TV dad Ty Burrell a happy birthday with the cutest throwback from set.

In the sweet 'gram, Burrell, who plays Phil Dunphy, hugs Winter, who portrays Phil's daughter Alex on the hit ABC sitcom. The adorable brunette teen cuddles up to Burrell while holding a doll in her hand. “Major #tb for Ty Burrell’s birthday! Happy birthday Ty, thank you for being an amazing tv dad,” she wrote. “Love you! Xo.”

This isn’t the first time she’s shown her TV family some IRL love. Last week, she attended an event with her on-screen brother Nolan Gould, who plays Luke Dunphy on Modern Family, and gave her co-star a kiss on the cheek while he looked unenthused. “Nolan’s sooooo over our friendship/siblingship,” she joked.

Nolan's sooooo over our friendship/siblingship 🙄😋
