Sarah Hyland has revealed she was born with “so many health issues”.

The 24-year-old actress currently stars in Modern Family as Haley Dunphy, and is seemingly as fit as ever. But she has revealed she wasn’t always in such good shape, and has had various problems over the years.

"I was born with so many health issues that doctors told my mother I would never have a normal life," Sarah confessed to America’s Seventeen magazine. "And she said, 'You're right, she won't—but it won't be because of her health.' When my mother told me that story, it resonated with me: If I can't have an ordinary life, I might as well have an extraordinary one. If you set your mind to something, you'll achieve it.”

With her mother championing her future success, Sarah charged forward to become a superstar in the entertainment world. But she didn’t have a free ride, she assured the publication.

"Happiness, I've learned, comes from within," Sarah revealed. "I am happiest when I am doing something I love. And I love Modern Family—it's the best job I've had in my 20 years as an actress. It didn't come easily or fast or free: It took me 14 years to land a gig like this."

The brunette beauty also attributes her happiness in life to taking deliberate steps forward. She believes eternally moving leads to success.

"When you're feeling vulnerable, it can lead to doubt and second-guessing. It will steer you away from your goals and your happiness," Sarah said. "Once you have a goal, keep moving forward—even if you're taking baby steps!"
