Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams- Are They Dating?
Aside from her acting, Sarah’s personal life is also much talked about in the entertainment industry. Unlike her celebrities, Hyland’s life is like an open book. Back in 2010, the young star started dating Geek Charming co-star, Matt Prokop.
However, there was trouble in paradise sooner than expected. Four years into the relationship, Hyland obtained a domestic violence temporary restraining order against her boyfriend. According to her, Prokop used to physically and verbally abuse her throughout their relationship.

Sarah Hyland: Kidney Transplant and Health Issue
Sarah’s life was in no way smooth sailing or happy, as we have assumed. Other than the abusive relationship, young Sarah was also battling some major health issues.
As a young child, Hyland suffered from kidney dysplasia i.e., malformation of kidney on one’s body. Due to it, in April 2012, the American actress received a kidney transplant from her father. However, the operation failed as her body kept rejecting the new kidney.
Then again, in September of 2017, Sarah got another transplant, this time from her younger brother, Ian. Even now, the actress is under the constant steroids and anti-rejection medicines to endure that her body does not reject the kidney this time.
So far, Hyland has gone through 16 surgeries, including numerous kidney surgeries and laparoscopic surgery. Because of it, Hyland had difficulty maintaining weight and had to take bed-rest frequently.
