Eric Stonestreet has found a new reason to visit Sydney each year.

The Modern Family star is in a romance with Aussie TV host, Samantha Armytage, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The pair met up last month when the actor was Down Under filming an episode of his TV show.  He also spends a few weeks there each year doing promotional work for a discount chain store called Big W.

Several eyewitnesses reported seeing the pair sharing what turned into a five hour lunch at an upscale restaurant and they’ve remained in contact since the actor returned to the U.S.

“There is definitely potential for a relationship because Eric travels here so often,” said a source.
