Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams are proof that Instagram can be the beginning of a beautiful love story.
Us Weekly exclusively revealed in October 2017 that Hyland and Adams were dating. Months later, Hyland shared that the twosome met via social media.
“Have you seen those memes of ‘Slide Into the DMs’? That. He slid into my DMs,” she explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in January 2018. “I thought he was funny, and he was a fan of [my] show. I saw him as the bartender and I was like, ‘That’s really cute!’”
Hyland referred to Adams’ decision to privately message her as the perfect balance of “sexy,” but not “aggressive.”
“I was single, obviously, and was like, ‘This is really awesome. You’re being very forward,” she said at the time. “But very confident and sexy, and I liked that.”
The twosome took the next step in their relationship during the summer of 2018 when they decided to move in together in Los Angeles. One year later, they got engaged.
“That can’t eat, can’t sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff,” Hyland captioned a photo from the July 2019 beach proposal, quoting the 1995 film It Takes Two.
After postponing their nuptials amid the coronavirus pandemic, Hyland and Adams finally tied the knot in August 2022.
