There has been a lot of controversy surrounding 14-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter and her relationship with her 18-year-old boyfriend Cameron Palatas. However, the young star does have one Hollywood couple standing by her side.

Ariel is currently embroiled in a guardianship and child abuse lawsuit with her mother. However, the actress’s mother claims that Ariel is only seeking to leave her care because she had found Ariel in bed with her older boyfriend.

RadarOnline recently caught up with Courtney Stodden, who shot to fame when she married Lost actor Doug Hutchison when she was just 16. (Doug was 51 at the time.) Naturally, Courtney is supportive of Ariel’s older boyfriend, and she even encourages them to take their relationship to the next level!

"They should get married,” Courtney told RadarOnline. "I think it's awesome!  As long as they're in love, it's okay."
