    At 13, she and her mother and sister hit hard times and were forced to accept food from a church. "The bread was crawling with ants," says Milian. "I told my mom, 'We're not moving into a homeless shelter. We're gonna make it happen here. I promise.' "

    She was true to her word. She bought a home in Woodland Hills, Calif., that she shared with her mom, sisters. "When we look at this house, we can't believe that we live in it!" she has said.
