Don’t Worry, Bachelor Nation: Danielle Maltby Approves of Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland’s Relationship

Blame it on the past few months’ crazy news cycle, but I’m already viewing the past season of Bachelor in Paradise as a far more innocent time. Ironically enough, the season that kicked off with sexual misconduct allegations on set turned out to be a little dull, sans for bartender Wells Adams finally going for it with longtime friend Danielle Maltby. The two shared quite the kiss when Maltby chose to leave the show for a job opportunity, and Bachelor Nation lit up with fervent shipping of the adorable-seeming pair. 

Several months later, as the cast of Grease would say, fans’ summer dreams of Adams and Maltby pairing up IRL “are ripped at the seams.” After he and Maltby repeatedly said they could never actually date each other, Adams has gone public with his relationship with Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland, and they’re honestly pretty cute together. Although, of course anyone following the Bachelor franchise wants to know how Maltby is doing with the news. 

“I’m so happy for him,” she recently said to reporters. “I’ve met Sarah—Sarah is amazing. They bounce off each other so well. They bring out the best in each other…the smile that Wells gets on his face is unreal. It’s so cute.”

Hyland has also made an effort to get to know Adams’ friends, as Maltby even shared that the actress gets in touch with her when visiting Adams in Nashville. While anybody with great faith in Bachelor Nation’s matchmaking may be disappointed, I’m definitely thrilled that Maltby and Adams have remained great friends even after their almost-summer fling.
