Last night, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland and The Bachelorette alum Wells Adams got engaged. The couple shared a heartwarming video of their proposal followed by a slideshow of some of their momentous pictures with one another. If you aren’t familiar with Sarah and Wells’ relationship, they share quite the modern love story.
So, how did Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams meet?
The two met on Twitter during the summer of 2017 while Wells was the bartender on Bachelor in Paradise. Fans quickly took note of the two flirting publicly with each other. However, in 2016 during Wells’ participation on The Bachelor with JoJo Fletcher, Sarah took no shame in expressing her crush toward her now fiancé.
But it wasn’t until October 2017 that the couple sparked serious speculation after sharing their Halloween costumes on Instagram. The two went as Dustin and Eleven from Stranger Things coupled with the caption “11 hangin’ out with a 10 #strangerthings.” In November 2017, the couple officially confirmed the rumors to be true on E! News. Though Sarah was the first to show interest, it was Wells who slid into Sarah’s DMs.
With less than a year of dating, in August 2018, the two moved in together.
This move only allowed their relationship to grow even further. However, Wells did have a concern about their dogs. In an episode of his podcast Your Favorite Thing, Wells said “I’m most concerned about my dog and her dogs…Carl sleeps on my bed. And her dog Boo sleeps on her bed. What’s going to happen?"
Luckily, everything worked out and both dogs equally share the bed with their parents. Since their relationship, Sarah and Wells have spent time with both of their families. Wells is super supportive toward Sarah, who’s gone through multiple kidney transplants and dialysis and has endometriosis. Talk about the perfect man.
Fast forward to today, the couple is engaged.
The couple took their news to social media with the most heartfelt captions. Sarah shared their announcement with photos of their engagement coupled with a caption that read, “That can’t eat, can’t sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff.”
Wells shared an equally romantic caption saying, “I’ll be Johnny, you be June. But forever.” This caption followed a video showing their romantic proposal with "I Like To Be Me When I'm With You" by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors playing in the background. It seems like the stars are in their favor because Sarah and Wells seem to be each other’s soulmates.
Sarah’s engagement ring is absolutely gorgeous!
To be fair, this is way better than a flimsy rose. In their engagement pictures, Sarah shows everyone just how gorgeous, and might we say big, the ring is. Though this is a small token of their love and it’s quite beautiful, it seems they don’t need the ring to express how meant for each other they are.
Congrats to both Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams. Thank you for showing hopeless romantics across the globe that sliding into your crushes DMs can work.
