For a couple who met as teenagers, this one lasted longer than many probably expected! Sarah Hyland’s rep confirmed that the actress and her boyfriend, Matt Prokop, have amicably broken up after five years together.

The Modern Family star normally brings her man to big red carpet events, but tellingly showed up alone to Monday night’s Emmy Awards. Still, she seemed to be in good spirits. “This sums up the #emmys2014 for me,” she wrote on Instagram, with a photo of herself beaming. “Thank you to those who voted for us!!! I can’t believe we won!!!! #emmys #modernfamily.”

Her ex, however, doesn’t look like he’s taking things too well. The actor recently made his Instagram account private, noting that he’s “taking a break from insta,” and has been sending cryptic tweets over the last several days, including, “The word sorry means nothing to me” and “Wake me up when it’s over.”


Matt celebrated his 24th birthday on July 29, less than one month ago, and at that time, the couple was still going strong. In fact, Sarah shared a romantic picture of the pair on the beach with the caption, “Happy birthday to my great love @mattpro13! So happy to celebrate another year of your life!!! You’re my everything ❤️️.”

A video from the same night on Instagram is the last time Matt appears on her social media page.
