'Thanks, I told him what to get,' Hyland said, as the crowd started cheering for the Modern Family star. 

Shepard then asked how their love story 'took root,' with Hyland explaining that, 'I saw him on The Bachelorette.'

'I had already seen it and I thought he was real hot and then he slid in those DM's because I tweeted about him,' Hyland added. 

Shepard then asked about the upcoming 11th and final season of her hit sitcom Modern Family, which lead Shepard to ask if she owns a yacht, which caused her to laugh.

'I wish I owned a yacht. I'm not Sofia Vergara,' Hyland said, referring to her Modern Family co-star, who has been named the highest-paid actress by Forbes for the past seven years in a row.
