Love and basketball!

Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams took their romance courtside on Tuesday, cheering on the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Modern Family star, 26, sported a purple baseball cap to show her support for the Lakers — who pulled out the win over the Chicago Bulls — as the couple took full advantage of the arena concessions. Adams, 33, was seen spotted sipping a beer, and both chowed down on pizza while watching the game.

Hyland also documented the night on her Instagram story, sharing selfies with her beau, who joked, “I thought hanging out with Sarah would mean I’d get better seats,” before the actress panned to show them practically on the court.

The duo first flirted on Twitter in 2016 but didn’t get together until recently. After dressing up in a couple’s Stranger Things costume for Halloween, they’ve been spending time together in his home base of Nashville, documenting their adventures on Snapchat and Instagram.

After the Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise alum admitted that he first met Hyland on social media, fellow Bachelor star Ashley Iaconetti has now revealed that it was the actress who made the first move.

“They’ve made it Instagram official and I think that’s the new Facebook official. So I would say, you’re not going to post multiple pictures on both ends without them actually being girlfriend and boyfriend,” Iaconetti said during the Nov. 8 episode of her Almost Famous podcast. “It was Sarah, Sarah [initiated it].”

Iaconetti’s cohost Ben Higgins went on to reveal that the interest was mutual.

“Sarah saw interest in Wells, reached out to Wells, and Wells showed interest back. What a beautiful story,” the former Bachelor star said. “And the fact that they’re having fun — I know Sarah just got out of a relationship, Wells has kind of been dating and also going on Bachelor in Paradise and kind of had his romantic interest — so if their journey leads them together through whatever means, we should celebrate that.”

Hyland also posted an intimate Instagram of the couple cuddling in bed earlier this month.

“[Spoon]ing,” she captioned a selfie of herself wrapped in Adams’ arms, with his beloved (and Snapchat-famous) bloodhound Carl snuggling alongside them in the sheets.
