Earlier this week, Wells Adams revealed the adorably modern way in which he and Sarah Hyland first connected — via social media. Now, fellow Bachelor Nation alum Ashley Iaconetti is offering a little more backstory about the relationship that has everyone buzzing, revealing that Hyland was the one who “initiated” the romance.

Iaconetti addressed the new coupling on her Almost Famous podcast with Ben Higgins. “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,” she said, alluding to the Insta pics that clued us in to the unexpected match.

She added that the 26-year-old actress made the first move with the 33-year-old reality TV contestant: “It was Sarah. Sarah [initiated it].”

Co-host Ben Higgins pointed out, though, that the feeling was certainly mutual. Breaking down the chain of events, he explained, “Sarah saw interest in Wells, reached out to Wells, and Wells showed interest back.” It sounds pretty straightforward, but Higgins couldn’t help adding, “What a beautiful story.” And while it may not be a fairy tale, we’re loving this modern romance.

Higgins (who is now dating again after going through his own romantic rollercoaster) is just happy that they’re happy. “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 [with Danielle Maltby] — so if their journey leads them together through whatever means, we should celebrate that.”

We totally agree!
