KEY POINTS

  • Wells Adams said he hopes the "third time's the charm" after the pandemic forced him and Sarah Hyland to postpone their wedding
  • He joked that they'll get married in Las Vegas if their plans fall through again
  • Adams suggested that Hyland's "Modern Family" co-stars Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen would be among those who would give "good" gifts

Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland are eager to finally tie the knot this year — and receive gifts off their registry from their celebrity pals.

Adams, 37, shared an update on his upcoming wedding to Hyland during a recent joint interview with former "Bachelor" star Ben Higgins ahead of their participation in the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, Us Weekly reported.

Adams said he's hoping the "third time's the charm" after the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials two years in a row.

The "Bachelor in Paradise" star then joked that if their plans fall through again, they're "getting a limo and it's some bad suits and we're going to Vegas and we're just knocking this thing out cause eventually, we need to get married."

Adams proposed to the "Modern Family" alum, 31, in summer 2019 after almost two years of dating. The couple originally had plans to wed in August 2020, but the pandemic has caused them to delay their wedding multiple times. They marked the occasion by taking "fake wedding pictures for fun," Hyland said on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in October last year.

Adams noted that he and Hyland have been engaged "longer" than they were dating and already feel like a married couple as they've bought a home and have two dogs together.

The former radio host said that what they're looking forward to now is to have a "big celebration" and get "amazing" gifts from their friends. As for the gifts Adams hopes to receive, he shared that he wants Le Creuset cast-iron cookware and a stand mixer for "all the things I'm going to cook."

During the conversation, he and Higgins, who married Jessica Clarke in November 2021, also joked that Adams and Hyland would likely get better wedding gifts from the actress' "Modern Family" co-stars than their pals from the "Bachelor" franchise. 

"We don't offer a lot, let’s be honest. We're going from the Target," Higgins quipped. "We're going on the other side. And those other alums can go, you know, for the new car."

Adams suggested that Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, who played Phil and Claire Dunphy, the parents of Hyland's character Hayley Dunphy in the sitcom, would be among those who would give "good" gifts.

"I'm not sure if Ben's hooking [us] up with some amazing stand mixer," Adams joked, to which Higgins replied, "I do love Wells. I care about him."

In August last year, Adams told People that he and Hyland were "hoping" to get married in 2022 — but he also teased that they were "gonna go to Vegas or the courthouse" to wed if another setback occurred.

"I don't know — well, we're not going to do those last two things, but I don't know. 2022 has got to be our year, right?" he said. "We're going to do it all over again, we're going to go on a nice vacation to where we got engaged, we're going to re-plan the entire engagement party again, we're going to re-plan our bachelor and bachelorette parties, we're going to kind of like, start a new one doing the wedding stuff."

The couple recently celebrated their four-year anniversary together in October 2021. At the time, Hyland noted in her Instagram tribute that she "cannot wait" for the day that they finally get married.

"But for now… posing with canned seltzers is more than enough," she wrote. "I'm so grateful to be able to call you my life partner and best friend. I love you +1 anything you say @wellsadams I am the luckiest."
