Sarah Hyland has sparked rumors she’s dating reality star Wells Adams after they attended a Halloween party together on Sunday night (29Oct17).
The Modern Family actress split from her boyfriend of two years, Dominic Sherwood, in August (17). But now it seems she has moved on from the break-up, attending a spooky bash in coordinating Stranger Things ensembles with Bachelorette hunk Wells.
While Sarah dressed as Dustin from the hit Netflix show, Wells opted to don a pink dress to go as Eleven. Sarah shared a picture of the pair attending the party with the caption: “Stranger things have happened #happyhalloween”, while Wells posted a snap of him and Sarah with some other partygoers with the caption: “11 hangin’ out with a 10.”
Following the images, a source close to the 26-year-old actress told Us Weekly that the pair are casually dating and have been “seeing each other for months”.
Another insider told People.com: “They’ve been friends for a while and now they’ve been hanging out and spending more time together. They’re flirty.”
Their decision to go public and attend an event together came after Wells admitted during a recent episode of his podcast that he was “talking to” someone who lived in Los Angeles, and had been spending an increasing amount of time there.
And the pair’s online flirting had sparked rumours among fans that he might have been referring to Sarah with the remark.
Wells first appeared on JoJo Fletcher’s season of TV show The Bachelorette, before being voted off. He then tried his luck on season three of the spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise, without success. He returned to the Mexican TV show earlier this year, but as a bartender rather than looking for love.
However, despite there being a rule in place forbidding him from dating any of the contestants, he shared a passionate kiss with long-term friend Danielle Maltby when she left after failing to find love.
He later played coy when asked about a potential romance with Danielle.
Judging by pictures on Instagram, Danielle also attended the same party as Wells and Sarah on Sunday night, with images on all three accounts featuring the stars posing in front of a blood-spattered background.
