Wells Adams was terrified of losing the engagement ring before he proposed to Sarah Hyland.
The 34-year-old star popped the question to the "Modern Family" actress on vacation in Fiji and admitted he'd been "freaking out" at the thought of the one-of-a-kind oval cut Lorraine Schwartz sparkler going missing, either while travelling or once they'd got to their idyllic holiday spot.
He said: "Guys, for the most part, are not used to having expensive pieces of jewellery around them.
"So, it freaks us out just in general. Also, for me, we were travelling across the ocean, so that's even more stress of like, 'What happens if someone steals my bag or something?'"
"Everyone is like, 'Are you so happy?' And I was so happy but I'm also so happy I'm not in charge of that very nice ring. There's too much pressure!"
