We're LOL-ing

Sarah Hyland is understandably over the moon after getting engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Wells Adams, earlier this week.

There are a few however, that would rain on her parade. One commenter in particular left a rather unkind note on the Modern Family star’s Instagram page after she gave her fans an up-close-and-personal look at her breathtaking oval-cut engagement ring.

“Blinded by the 🌞 or the 💍?” she captioned a video of herself on Instagram on Thursday, July 18, that showed her shielding her eyes from the elements with her newly adorned hand as she laid on the beach with her fiancé. “It’s so sunny!” she said in the first clip.

A second video zoomed in on the piece even closer as the Bachelorette alum, 35, is heard saying, “It’s shining.”

“Yeah it is,” Hyland, 28, responded.

While the clips garnered plenty of adoration from pals such as Bachelor alum Carly Waddell (“💍 IS 🔥🔥🔥🔥”) and The Office’s Angela Kinsey (“Gurrrl!!”), one woman criticized the actress’s decision to show off her new bling.

“Most obnoxious engaged dipsh*t award goes to you!!!!” the woman wrote.

Rather than stay mum or respond with a low blow, Hyland responded with humor. “Omg!” she wrote. “I AM going for the most obnoxious!!!!! How’d you know??”

E! News reported that her stunning rock appears to be roughly 5-carats and would likely cost between $175,000-200,000, according to WP Diamonds CEO Andrew Brown.

The couple took to Instagram to share their happy news on Tuesday, July 16, after Adams popped the question to the See You in Valhalla star with a romantic beachside proposal.

“I’ll be Johnny, you be June. But forever,” Adams captioned a sweet video from his big moment.

Hyland also posted a gallery of photos that showed her groom-to-be on one knee. “That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff,” she gushed.

The following day, she shared a snap of the shirtless “Your Favorite Thing” podcast cohost hugging her from behind, writing, “My fiancé ... my FIANCÉ .... MYYYY FIAAANCÉÉÉÉÉ!!!!”

Haters aside, the duo has plenty of support from their family and friends. Everyone from Modern Family’s Julie Bowen to The Bachelor’s Chris Harrison, Hannah Brown, Jason Tartick, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Raven Nicole Gates congratulated the twosome on their engagement.

No one was more excited than Ben Higgins, however: "I'm sobbing,” he wrote. “Dang I love these two. You should also. If you don't love @Sarah_Hyland and @WellsAdams you aren't someone I want to be friends with. Holy moly I'm jacked. Congrats! Also, @WellsAdams and @Sarah_Hyland I am your biggest fan."
