This 6-Step Routine is Called “The Miracle Morning” Because It Creates Your Dream Life

No matter how positive you are or how much you love mornings, there will always be days when you wake up...

Hollywood is full of PR stunts and fake relationship rumors, but you know two people who are definitely genuinely in love? That’d be The Bachelorette’s Wells Adams and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland, who had a tear-jerker of a fairytale wedding.

It took DMs, text messages, voice memos (dayum), calls, and FaceTime calls before Sarah and Wells actually met in person and went on an actual date, and it’s pretty much been nonstop cuteness ever since. 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.

July 21, 2012

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 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:

August 15, 2017

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.

September 2017

Sarah confirmed with Self that she underwent her second kidney transplant (where her younger brother donated his organ, FYI) during this time. And as our May 2020 cover star, she explains that she and Wells had gone on only two dates just before her second major medical procedure. He even flew from Nashville to L.A. on the weekends just to be with her during her recovery KNOWING her family was going to be there too.

Meeting the fam before anything’s official? A lot! But if this ain’t true love???

Late October 2017

Wells and Sarah are clearly hanging out at the same place, at least according to Instagram Stories.

And she even spilled to us that they were already telling each other that they were falling in love and talking about what kind of weddings they wanted. Yeah, I’m wondering how in TF this is real life too.

October 29, 2017

They wear a couples costume for Halloween, which causes the entire internet to spiral with rUmORS and SpeCULatiOn.

November 5, 2017

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.”

November 23, 2017

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

November 24, 2017

Wells puts all other boyfriends/humans to shame by posting the most romantic birthday post that has ever been written.

Excuse me while I go get mad at my significant other for not writing me this exact post on my b-day.

December 30, 2017

Wells and Sarah spend Christmas together with Wells’s family in Nashville—a pretty big step considering they’d been dating only a few months!

January 1, 2018

Naturally, they share a New Year’s Eve kiss. As if they’d pass up on posting content that cute on social.

January 20, 2018

Wells and Sarah hit up their first major event together (Entertainment Weekly’s SAG Awards nominees party) and, naturally, PDA all over the place.

Sarah rivals Wells’s “happy birthday” posting skills with this cuteness. And FYI, the picture was taken shortly after they said “I love you” for the first time:

August 3, 2018

People reports that Wells has moved into Sarah’s Los Angeles home. EEEEEK, it’s all happening.

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.

October 29, 2018

Another year, another Halloween costume.

Taco Bell, get it?

November 24, 2018

Oh, and another year, another insanely cute birthday post from Wells. Damn, he’s good at this.

December 22, 2018

Wells and Sarah get caught on a kiss cam and handle it in the most Wells and Sarah way possible.

January 1, 2019

More New Year’s Eve Kiss Kontent!!!

February 14, 2019

The pair gives us a glimpse at what their Valentine’s Day is like. Answer: predictably adorable.

February 25, 2019

Sarah and Wells hit up the Vanity Fair Oscars party and take a series of truly incredible red carpet photos.

May 30, 2019

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.”

July 4, 2019

Patriotism, but make it romantic.

July 7, 2019

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! (If you are still reading this timeline, bless you.) Sarah and Wells get engaged on a beach and it’s freakin’ cute as hell:

August 8, 2020

Behold, the day Sarah and Wells were supposed to get married. Till the pandemic changed their plans, sigh.

October 15, 2020

Three years of dating definitely calls for a cute Insta post, no?

January 7, 2021

Wells teases that he and Sarah might have a courthouse wedding, explaining that Sarah is immunocompromised due to being a kidney transplant recipient. “We have to be super careful about the pandemic, more so than most people our age. We had to push it the first time around, that was tough. The thought was to push it to this year. If this thing continues and we’re not able to do it, we’ll do a courthouse,” he said. “I’m really pushing for Vegas—powder blue suits, Elvis officiant.”

February 14, 2021

Just some fake wedding pics to hold everyone over till the real thing, you’re welcome!

October 15, 2021

Another year, another sweet dating anniversary!

November 21, 2021

No words, just this.

January 1, 2022

Sarah and Wells reveal this is officially THE year they’re getting married.

February 14, 2022

Some predictably adorable V-Day posts coming up:

June 2, 2022

Wells is asked about his wedding plans and says, “Hopefully this year, but Covid has postponed that a couple times. So, fingers crossed it’s this year. We’ve been full force into planning for three years, so everything’s done. We just need to actually have it.”

June 15, 2022

Sarah has her bridal shower at long last!

July 16, 2022

And then her bach party! After which Sarah tells E! News that the “wildest thing that happened was that we were dancing on tables singing musical theater. I did the entire Chicago soundtrack by myself. Is that sad or is that everything? I think it’s everything.”

Which means, yep…their wedding is literally right around the corner.

That’s it for now, but don’t worry, we’ll be updating this timeline with new super-sweet details as they emerge.

August 20, 2022

It’s official! Wells and Sarah are married. A source confirms to E! News that they tied the knot on August 20 during an outdoor ceremony at Sunstone Winery. Gorge pic incoming:

September 13, 2022

In an interview with Us Weekly to promote his pizza-making reality competition show (because, sure) Best in Dough, Wells revealed that he fully cried when he watched Sarah walk down the aisle on their big day (per her request/quasi-demand).

“Sarah said before the wedding, ‘If you don’t cry when you see me for the first time walking down the aisle, I’m gonna be really upset,'” he explained. “And I was like, ‘That’s a lot of pressure. I’m not an actor.’ Luckily enough, I was crying like a baby when she turned the corner with her dad and then I was hugging her dad and I was crying with him, then reading the vows, I was crying and you know what … she didn’t really cry at all. And I was like, ‘What the heck, what’s going on!'”

October 16, 2022

Sarah celebrated her 5-year dating anniversary with Wells by posting a stunning sunset photo from their wedding on Instagram. “5 years of I love you’s today 💕 Happy half a decade baby 💋,” the Modern Family star captioned the shot. Wells also playfully commented on his cheeky hand placement in the pic, writing, “✋ on butt. 😏”

That same day, Wells revealed he and Sarah were celebrating their honeymoon in the Maldives. “Honeymoon Happy,” he wrote in his caption, where he also gave Sarah photo creds.

October 22, 2022

Sarah and Wells wished her Modern Family co-star (and wedding officiant!) Jesse Tyler Ferguson a happy birthday with a sweet Instagram Reel from the ceremony.

“To be married by @jessetyler was a dream and a privilege,” Sarah said. “Jesse, you have been such an amazing friend, mentor, and an integral part of our lives. So happy birthday to the best officiant of all time! Our wedding truly would not have been as special without you 💕🧙🏼‍♂️.”

October 27, 2022

Sarah and Wells weren’t shy when it came to snapping pics on their honeymoon. The couple each posted photos on their respective Instagram profiles. Of course, we kept track of the tropical vibes they enjoyed in the Maldives— including Wells’ first shot as an “Instagram husband.”

October 31, 2022

Even after their honeymoon, Sarah and Wells found the energy (and spirit) to dress up for Halloween. Of course, they killed it as Gomez and Morticia Addams from the beloved Addams Family cinematic universe—which also acted as a clever play as their first Halloween as Mr. and Mrs. Wells Adams. Kinda genius, if you ask me.

November 24, 2022

Wells posted an adorable tribute to Sarah for her birthday, which happened to fall on Thanksgiving.

“I’m thankful for so much in my life. But I’m most thankful that this woman was born on this day. Happy birthday @sarahhyland!” he wrote. “I’m not sure what I did in a past life to deserve something as perfect as you, but I thank the stars every day that I found you. Love you +1 anything you say.”

These two!!! 🥹

November 28, 2022

During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Sarah pretty much confirmed she was going to leave Wells at the altar if he didn’t cry when she walked down the aisle (and, honestly, she’s real for that).

This content is imported from youTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

When Kelly asked the actress if it was “true that you threatened your husband if he didn’t cry” during their wedding, Sarah immediately said, “Yes.”

“I actually, specifically, verbatim said: ‘If I don’t see you crying when I walk down the aisle, I’m turning around,'” she explained.

Whew, it’s a good thing Wells brought on the waterworks.

December 6, 2022

Wells and Sarah brought on the PDA at the People’s Choice Awards as they posed on the red carpet. Just look at the cuteness:

Wells also told E! News, “By the way, she thinks she’s a full-blown pop star after a couple glasses of wine,” referring to his wife’s major singing chops.

If she recreates iconic T. Swift performances in her living room after one too many Cab Savs, then Sarah Hyland really is just like me. 🍷🍷🍷

December 26, 2022

The couple jokingly wished their followers a “Merry Chrysler” with sweet snaps featuring their pup and some family friends.

December 31, 2022

To close out 2022, Sarah shared an Instagram photo dump featuring tons of fun memories with Wells.

“2022. We got married, welcomed babies, lost our precious @carlthebloodhound , worked in Berlin, honeymooned in Big Sur & the Maldives, helped islanders find love, made art out of @playdoh , sang at the thanksgiving parade, and it all went by in a blink. I’m so grateful for friends, family, and whatever the future holds for @wellsadams and myself in this new chapter as Mr. & Mrs. ✨,” she wrote in her caption.

January 4, 2023

The couple celebrated New Year’s on Lake Tahoe with friends, including Falling For Christmas star Chord Overstreet. Of course, Sarah shared some of the mems on Instagram with two posts. The first being some 🔥🔥🔥 shots in front of the fireplace:

And the second being a photo dump with adorable pics of her and Wells in the snow.

February 14, 2023

This year marked Sarah and Wells’ first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, and of course, they shared adorable snaps from their wedding to celebrate the romantic AF holiday.

“Each day is Valentine’s Day with you. You’re my person, my lobster, my best friend. I love you to Pluto and back ✨,” she wrote, referencing Rachel and Ross’ iconic lines from Friends.

Wells also dropped a sweet comment, writing, “I love you more. Plus 1 anything you say.”

The Bachelorette alum posted his own pics to commemorate the occasion. “Happy Valentine’s Day to my soulmate. I love you most @sarahhyland. 🥰,” he wrote alongside another gorgeous pic from their wedding day.

May 16, 2023

It’s Taurus szn, which means it’s Wells’ birthday. Sarah celebrated her hubby with—you guessed it—a super cute Insta post.

She shared a clip of Wells playfully running along a beach and wrote, “Happy Birthday to my favorite person in the entire world! I wake up… EVERY morning…and thank my lucky stars that I get to be married to you. I love being able to fall more in love with you every single day.”

August 11, 2023

The pair shared a romantic sunset dinner in paradise, and Wells shared a shot on his Insta with a joke referencing his stint on Bachelor in Paradise and Sarah’s Love Island USA hosting gig. “Filming Paradise or Love Island? You decide. Dinner with a view. The sunset was nice too,” he captioned the shot.

August 13, 2023

In case you were wondering how Sarah and Wells’ first date went down, the couple spilled the deets on the latest episode of Shondaland’s The Flaky Biscuit podcast.

“When we first started dating, I remember I would fly out from Nashville to Los Angeles, and I cooked for her and made… shrimp tacos one night and my famous skirt steak recipe tacos,” Wells dished. Okay, a man who cooks? Sarah stays winning in the romance department.

Sarah added they had “a wonderful night” together, saying, “I never had a man cook for me before, so it was really special. And obviously, I love tacos, and he was just so good at making them.”

August 20, 2023

It has officially been a year since the couple tied the knot during their beautiful Santa Barbara ceremony, and we’re already swooning at the hilarious pics they shared to celebrate the milestone in their fairytale relationship.

First, Sarah posted at 4 a.m. (talk about dedication!) while traveling in Fiji. “One year married to you flew by in a blink of an eye. You’re my HUSBAND. My best friend. My true north,” she wrote in her tribute. “I love you more than words can say and every day is the best day when I’m with you. Marriage is most fun I’ve ever had because I get to be married to you 💋.”

Wells even commented on her swiftness, writing, “How did you beat me to this?!? It’s 4am in Fiji!!!!! But I love you more. So there’s that.”

He posted his own pic from their wedding, where Sarah made a silly face at the altar:

“Happy first anniversary to my perfect wife. I love you more. Plus one. Anything you say,” he wrote.

While I’d personally beg my partner to delete a silly photo, Sarah left a cute comment with an equally funny nickname. “Best day of my LIFE. I love you to Pluto and back sugar nuts 💋🥰,” she said.

Aaaaand that’s everything you need to know about these two (for now). Come back for more updates on Sarah and Wells’ rom-com-worthy relationship.
