Now that she’s gotten it all out in the open, the Modern Family star is getting some serious support from her sister on the show, Sarah Hyland.
The 24-year-old is commending the actress’ decision to go under the knife to reduce her size, saying:
“It’s something we’ve been talking about for a long time. I’m super proud of her. I’m super happy for her.”
The 17-year-old gave a whole bunch of legitimate reasons for having the procedure, including over-sexualization and some pretty bad back problems.
Sarah says she has no idea what that must have been like for her co-star, since they have similar statures:
“She’s a tiny girl. We’re practically the same size. I’m about a half of an inch or an inch taller than her, and I can’t imagine carrying that weight.”
But, the brunette beauty says she’s so glad that Ariel finally seems comfortable with herself and her body:
“She’s happy and most of all, she is healthy. She’s glowing. As long as she’s healthy and happy, that’s all that matters to me. She’s always been a very happy little girl ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ oh, God, I will still see her as an 11-year-old in my eyes. She’s really like my little sister.”
Awwww! We’re so glad the love and support between these two ladies exists just as much off the set as it does on! We’re really happy that Ariel seems to be enjoying herself!
