"I haven't had the greatest year. Maybe one day I'll talk about it but for now, I'd like my privacy. I will say that this year has brought a lot of changes and with that, physical changes," Hyland wrote. "I have been told that I can't work out. Which, for me, is very upsetting. I love to be STRONG... Strength is everything. Being strong has gotten me where I am. Both mentally and physically. I am not a fan of 'being skinny.'"

The couple keeps getting closer and closer, with E! News reporting they celebrated the one-year anniversary of their first kiss recently.
