While we are all stuck at home bored amid the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, celebrities have buckled down with us and some have been up to some hilarious activities. Sarah Hyland and fiancé Wells Adams took trust to a whole new level as Hyland gave Adams a buzz cut — if you haven't seen it, it actually does not look half bad. 

The adorable couple met when Hyland with her bold self tweeted about her crush on Adams in 2016 and as the flirting continued back and forth, the rest was history. Their tweets to each other are just plain cute! In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Hyland had spoken about how the duo went on two dates before the 'Bachelor' contestant made a grand gesture.

In October 2017, the couple confirmed the dating rumors as they dressed up in a couples costume for Halloween — they dressed up as Eleven and Dustin from 'Stranger Things.' But it wasn't until the next month that the couple made things Instagram official with Hyland posting a picture captioning it, "Our thanksgiving was so amazing we forgot to take pictures. So here’s one from a year ago. I love and am very grateful for my turkey."

In January 2018, the couple attended the Entertainment Weekly SAG Awards nominees party together marking their first major public event as a couple. Hyland also let her fans in on when the couple exchanged their 'I love you's' in May 2018 saying,  "this picture was taken three days after three words were exchanged. My smile has only grown, my heart has only deepened, and my world has only gotten better ever since. @wellsadams? You are the most phenomenal man I have ever met and I am the luckiest woman in the world to have you by my side. Thank you for calling me baby even when I’m acting crazy. Happy Birthday Llama! Hey... #toplutoandback #myperson."

Hyland also jokingly revealed she's the 'child in the relationship' describing Adams as a communicator saying, “This is the first time I’ve been in a relationship where I’m like, ‘How am I the child in the relationship?’ I’ve always been the adult.”

Hyland, who's never shied away from speaking about her health concerns, had undergone a second kidney transplant in September 2017. Adams, being the supportive partner that he is, used to fly from Nashville to LA to spend time with Hyland as she recovered. But, Hyland was the one that made the first move you could say! She revealed in the interview, "I asked him when he was going to ask me to be his girlfriend. I’m impatient."

In that moment you took my heart. You then gave me my last first kiss. And in that moment you took my breath away. I love you to Pluto and back @wellsadams ❤️ *YES PLUTO IS A PLANET. IT WILL ALWAYS BE*"

In July 2019, Adam proposed to Hyland and the beach engagement was so sweet! Hyland posted the proposal picture on her Instagram, captioning it, "That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff. @wellsadams." Anyone else teared up because we did!

In August 2019, the Wells told Entertainment Weekly that marriage isn't a rush, and the duo want to live in the moment. "I've said it before, everyone is so invested in the next thing. Like when we were dating, everyone was like, 'When are you moving in?' And when we moved in, everyone was like, 'When are you going to get engaged?' ...It's like, hold on, don't forget that the destination isn't what it's about. The journey is what's fun. We're, like, a month into being engaged and I've never been engaged before and I assume I'm never going to be again, so I kind of want to just enjoy this little time," Wells said.
