Us weekly exclusively revealed that modern family star and Bachelor in Paradise the bartenders met in October 2017. A few months later, Hyland shared that they met on social media.
“Have you seen those “Slide Into the DM” memes? What. He slipped into my DMs,” the actress explained. Jimmy Kimmel Live! in January 2018. “I thought he was funny and he was a fan [my] show. I saw him as a bartender and I thought, “That’s really cute!”
Hyland called Adams’ decision to write to her privately the perfect balance of “sexy” but not “aggressive”.
“Of course I was lonely and I thought, ‘This is really cool. You are very persistent, ”she said then. “But very confident and sexy, and I loved that.”
The couple took the next step in their relationship in the summer of 2018 when they decided to move to Los Angeles together.
Hyland later thanked Adams for helping her deal with kidney dysplasia, a debilitating illness that once made her contemplate suicide.
“He saw me at my worst,” she told Self magazine in December 2018. “I think that’s why I feel the most beautiful in his eyes, because he still finds me beautiful after seeing all this. It was a really intimate start to a relationship, to go through those obstacles in the very, very, very beginning, when you first get to know the person.”
Adams, in turn, called his girlfriend a “real-life version” of Wonder Woman that same month.
“Imagine that you had a vital organ replaced. Imagine 16 surgeries, hundreds of doctor visits, and thousands of pills. Imagine crazy weight loss due to dialysis, medication side effects and stress. Then imagine having to do it over and over again. This time, keep it a secret while you recover, while the trolls on the Internet condemn you for your appearance,” the podcast host said. Us weekly solely about the health of the Highlands at the time. “Oh, and throw in the funniest show on TV, an executive producer, and a starring role in a movie…and never break. Never losing it. I know Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman in the movie, but Sarah is the real life version of her.”
Adams and Hyland got engaged in July 2019. “He can’t eat, he can’t sleep, he can’t reach for the stars, he can climb over the fence, the world series,” the comedian captioned a photo from the beach proposal, citing the 1995 film. He takes two.
