Modern Family Sarah Hyland got engaged to Wells Adams, and friends and co-stars wanted to wish the best to the couple

Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland and Bachelorette boyfriend Wells Adams revealed the big news of their engagement on social media on Tuesday, with Sarah sharing a series of snaps of the dreamy beach proposal. White sands, blue sea,and blue skies... the location – and the engagement ring! – looked as stunning as the pictures. The photographs show Sarah taken by surprise, putting her hand over her mouth in shock as Wells gets down on one knee. Alongside the cute photo gallery she wrote, "That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff," quoting 1995 Olsen Twins film It Takes Two.

 The couple started dating in 2017, when Sarah was going through major health issues and needed a kidney transplant

"I'll be Johnny, you be June. But forever," the reality TV personality captioned in his Instagram post, quoting a song by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. The 28-year-old commented, "I love you to Pluto and back FIANCE. When we get married will I automatically acquire your talent for making everyone cry with a homemade video." The pair confirmed they were dating in October 2017, but during the course of their romance they've faced some tough challenges.

They met three days before Sarah´s second kidney transplant and Wells supported her through all the recovery. "It was a really intimate start to a relationship to have to go through those hurdles at the very, very, very beginning when you’re just even getting to know a person,” the actress said in an interview for Self.

 Sealed with a kiss. After two years together, Sarah and Wells are going to walk down the aisle

Couldn't be happier if you were my own flesh and blood!". Will & Grace star Debra Messing posting, "You're going to make GORGEOUS babies!! I'm so happy for you sweetness," to what Sarah hilariously replied, "Debra Messing with the curliest head of hair EVER."
