During the candid exchange on the podcast, Adams revealed that their relationship was once kept a "secret" due to Hyland's health challenges, including a kidney transplant. 

"I was in quarantine, so I couldn't leave the house because my immune system was so, so very low," Hyland explained.

With limited visitors allowed, the "Modern Family" alum highlighted the unconventional start of their romance. She said, "When we first started dating, it's not like we could go out to restaurants, and it's not like we had a first date at a restaurant. Our first meal together was at my house in Studio City. He came and visited and made us shrimp tacos."

To this, Adams recalled an amusing incident involving his sister and his famous shrimp tacos. "It was funny because I lived in Nashville for 12 years, and there were a couple of years when I lived with my sister ... and I remember we did the shrimp tacos and my sister texted me, 'You're not that slick. I know what you're doing. You made your shrimp tacos.'" 

"Sarah had posted, 'This is what I'm eating tonight,'" he added.

Hyland fondly remembered their delightful evening, saying, "He had cooked for me, and I never had a man cook for me before, so it was really special. And obviously, I love tacos, and he was just so good at making them."
