Hollywood is full of fake relationships (I WON’T BE NAMING NAMES) and PR stunts, but you know who are definitely genuinely in love? That’d be The Bachelorette’s Wells Adams and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland, who announced their engagement after two years of dating. Which is basically a lifetime, considering we live in a world where most celebs wait approximately three weeks before getting engaged and married (ahem, Mr. Bieber and Ms. Baldwin).
As Bachelor Nation prepares for Wells and Sarah’s wedding, let’s take a look back at their infectiously sweet relationship, starting from the very beginning: when Wells was one of 26 contestants vying for JoJo Fletcher’s heart.

Bachelor stan Sarah makes it clear that just because she talks about how guys on the show are hot doesn’t mean she’s crushing. (Yeah, that turned out to be a lie!)
Those who think I have a thing for any of the guys on the bachelorette? Think again and stop reading into things i say! I'm simply a fan.— Sarah Hyland (@Sarah_Hyland) July 22, 2012

Sarah watches Wells on the Men Tell All Special and tweets about how great he is. Which, by the way, he screenshots and retweets two years later:

Sarah and Wells flirt on Twitter while he’s on Bachelor in Paradise. Reading these tweets while knowing what’s coming is better than any romance novel, FACT.

Wells and Sarah make it more than clear that they’re officially a couple, or at the very least...making out with each other in dim lighting:
November 6, 2017
E! News reports that they are dating, with a source musing, “It’s true. They are a couple. She has been spending time with him in Nashville and he is showing her around and doing fun activities with her. Wells is proudly introducing her to all his friends and is really happy that they connected. They are taking it slow but are not seeing other people.”

Things move fast, because Wells and Sarah end up spending Thanksgiving together. But we don’t see pics until a full year later.

Wells and Sarah celebrate the anniversary of their first kiss while I lie in bed celebrating the anniversary of something equally important, like...IDK, the first time I ate pie or something.
October 15, 2018
Wells and Sarah celebrate their one-year anniversary with more cuteness that legit gives me FOMO even though I’m in a relationship.

Another year, another Halloween costume.
Taco Bell, get it?

Wells says his and Sarah’s parents have never met because of their differing politics. “They both fall on opposite sides of the political spectrum and I’m just sure someone’s going to get into a fight about something,” he said. “It will be liberal actors and my dad and my family, who are a bunch of conservatives. My dad’s a doctor; my brother-in-law is from oil money in Texas. It’s going to be so weird.”
