Most of us know Sarah Hyland as Modern Family‘s perpetually annoyed, ever-so-slightly dim Hayley Dunphy. In real life, however, Sarah is much more than an eye-rolling brat with a heart of gold; she’s the optimistic survivor of an (until recently) secret kidney transplant. “You know that family is always going to be there for you – no matter what. My dad gave me a freakin’ kidney!,” Hyland tells the new issue of Seventeen. The actress received the transplant on April 13 after a grappling with a lifelong case of kidney dysplasia. Adding Sarah, “But it’s also the families that you create outside of your family. And you really find out what kind of people you’re friends with.” We totally agree with you, girl, but also…score in the dad department! If it had been Phil Dunphy, he’d probably have accidentally dropped his kidneys down the trash compactor. Or traded them in for a llama.
Hyland scored yet another win (besides the awesome dad and organ compatibility), this time in the boyfriend department. “He helps me with my medication and takes me to doctor appointments and all the stuff that I need to do to take care of myself,” Sarah says of actor Matt Prokop, who guest starred as a potential love interest for Hayley on last week’s episode. “Any other 21-year-old guy would not be there, I guarantee it. I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have him be there for me.” Awww! It’s like the end of every episode of Modern Family up in here, just with more invasive surgery.

Meet Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof!
Proud parents Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen introduce their bundle of joy, who was born on April 21, in the pages of UK’s Hello! magazine. Astala is the first child for the couple, who reportedly have plans to tie the knot next year.
Unlike many famous families, Thomas and Peaches say they’ve already agreed not to hire a nanny to help out at home.
“We definitely won’t have a nanny,” the 20-year-old singer recently revealed, adding, “We have already made that decision. It’ll be just us and our families looking after our baby.”
Congratulations to them again on their new son!

In some precious new pics, Pink was seen enjoying her first Mother’s Day with her adorable 11-month-old daughter Willow in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday (May 13). The Grammy Award-winner looked simply joyous as she rode her darling daughter on the front of her bike as proud papa Carey Hart rode alongside his girls.
It’s my first mothers day- and I’m just filled to the brim with gratitude. My mama bear love goes out in the form of a mama bear hug to all,” the new mom tweeted Sunday.
Pink and her motocross racer hubby welcomed their first child on June 2, 2011. After welcoming her daughter, the Family Portrait singer said, “My life was once whiskey, tears and cigarettes. Now it’s snot, tears and the color of poop. I do miss the whiskey, though!”
“ummm i just have to say that my daughter may be the most bestest amazingest stupendoustest baby ever made in the history of the planet,” Pink also gushed about her gorgeous girl via Twitter.

We have been crossing our fingers for confirmation that Demi Lovato would be taking a seat next to Britney Spears and L.A. Reid on the judges’ panel of The X Factor, and now TMZ says it’s really happening. Spears just announced her term as judge on Simon Cowell’s show last Wednesday, after months of rumors. Now, sources told the gossip site that Demi’s making an appearance with Britney at the Fox Upfront presentation for advertisers in New York today.
The outspoken “Skyscraper” star and her fellow Disney Channel alumna kind of make this the pop-starriest judging panel ever (no offense, JLo, Xtina, Paula and, er, Nicole). And at 19, Lovato is certainly the youngest judge we’ve seen on a major talent show in this country. Will Reid be able to hold his own against these ladies? We can hardly wait to see when The X Factor returns this fall. Stay tuned today for more news from the Upfronts!
