"I was single, obviously, and was like, 'this is really awesome. You're being very forward but confident and sexy, and I like that," Hyland recalled on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The duo's Instagram-born romance came to light in October 2017, and it was a matter of days before insiders confirmed the two had indeed taken their relationship up a notch from the digital platform. Adams ultimately became Instagram's poster boy for the most supportive boyfriend, with his consistent posts about Hyland and his utmost support for the actress throughout her health scare in 2018, when she received her first kidney transplant, and years following as Sarah's struggle with her health continued.

The twosome announced their engagement on July 16, 2019, and everyone saw it coming. "We just moved in together, so I think we're still kind of, like, feeling each other out, but it's gonna happen eventually," Adams had said while dishing on his plans on proposing to the Modern Family actress. Everything was going perfectly to their plans, and then Covid happened. Like many awaiting betrothed couples around the world, Hyland and Adams' dream for a swift wedding was also put on hold.
"All of my family is mostly on the East Coast, so for them to fly out, just ages and, of course, with my health risks, we want to be as safe as possible," Hyland said while announcing their wedding delay. While many resumed their nuptial plans when the Covid fear started to die down, the duo remained extra cautious. Citing Sarah's health problems, Wells said, "Sarah is immunocompromised. She's a transplant recipient, so she takes pills so that she doesn't reject this new kidney in her body. We have to be super careful about the pandemic."
