The 'Modern Family' actress couldn't wait to take to Snapchat to share a picture of her posing with the 'I Am Cait' star, who was known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing a gender transition.
Captioning the picture, she wrote: ''Met Caitlyn and she called me her second daughter. She was so sweet!''
Meanwhile, the 18-year-old star also looks up to her co-star Sofia Vergara and praised her for being a ''wonderful role model''.
She gushed: ''I really had the greatest opportunity to have some wonderful role models, especially Sofia Vergara. Working with a curvy beautiful woman that everybody looked up to and loved the way she looked ... that was my inspiration to move forward and accept myself because that's what matters.''
Ariel has been heavily criticised for posting sexy snaps on her Instagram account but she doesn't see what the problem is.
She added: ''I don't really think I'm telling myself, 'You should post this, you shouldn't post that,' I feel like I'm just having fun. I like my fans to see what I'm doing. Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt's out. It's a butt. Everyone has a butt. I don't think it's crazy.
''It's like, 'Let me live! I'm enjoying my life, you're enjoying your life, you should be posting your butt if you like it, too!' I'm not going to fight with someone on my Instagram that tells me they don't like my outfit or I should put my butt away. I'm sorry you think I should put my butt away, but just unfollow me.''
