Sarah Hyland’s Pal Wishes Her Congrats on Engagement to Wells Adams, But…

By  | 

Well, this is awkward. It appears that one of Sarah Hyland‘s supposed friends congratulated the Modern Family actress and Wells Adams on their engagement… but they’re not even engaged!

In an Instagram post shared on May 18, celebrity photographer Yu Tsai posted a picture of himself with the 27-year-old actress, along with the caption:

“Congratulations to my sweet friend @sarahhyland @wellsadams on their engagement…. fingers crossed I get invited to the wedding.”

The photog also included emojis of fingers crossed, a kissing face and a heart.

What was questionable, though, is that the curly-haired star and the 34-year-old former Bachelorette contestant, who’ve been dating since October 2017, didn’t post any notes about plans to walk down the aisle anytime soon — and you know how much both of ’em LIVE for social media.

Things got even more questionable when the post was deleted.

After the speculation, a rep for the brunette beauty denied any sort of wedding plans, telling Gossip Cop, “They are not engaged.”

Here’s our theory: Earlier last week, Sarah posted this cute picture of herself with Wells in honor of his 34th birthday:

The caption:

“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”

The first line of the caption ends on the word “exchanged” — pretty close to “engaged,” don’t you think? So, perhaps, Sarah’s pal quickly looked at it, got excited and posted before checking? Otherwise, we really have no idea.
