Ariel Winter finally feels like a normal teenager.

The 'Modern Family' star is currently in the care of her 34-year-old sister Shanelle Grey after being removed from her mother Chrisoula 'Chrystal' Workman's custody in October and Ariel admitted she has never been happier.

She told Teen Vogue magazine: ''My life is definitely more normal -- and that'll help me grow up like I'm supposed to. Like, I always wanted to be a dancer, and now I'm taking dance classes. And I didn't have many friends. It was all about work. Nowadays, my sister's like, 'You're supposed to have friends. You're supposed to go out on Friday and Saturday nights.''

Ariel, 15, also revealed she loves spending quiet Sundays at home with her sister because they didn't know each other growing up.

She explained: ''Sunday we have family dinner. It's just a different experience for me because I have more of a family life. I'm really happy.

''I didn't know my sister much growing up, and I wasn't really allowed to see her. I know now that my sister is the type of person I'd aspire to grow up to be like. It's really interesting how close you can get with somebody in such a short period.''
