"It's not hard to love her. She's gorgeous and beautiful and smart and talented," Adams said of Hyland on ET Live in January. "With her health issues and stuff, everyone goes through things in their lives, it just so happened that when we started dating she was going through a very big thing. But as our lives unfold together, there's going to be things that happen to me when I'm going to lean on her. Every relationship's a give and take."
