Pregnant Vanessa Hudgens Shows Baby Bump With Cole Tucker on Date Night

By Michael Apr 28, 2024

Vanessa Hudgens found The One in Cole Tucker.

The pair first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted holding hands in November 2020, less than one year after Hudgens split from longtime love Austin Butler. Hudgens and Tucker went Instagram official in honor of Valentine’s Day the following year.

“Me and Cole met on a Zoom meditation group. Very random, yes,” Hudgens told Entertainment Tonight in April 2021. “Zoom, you’ve got to love it. He’s just kind of perfect for me. I am [happy]. I really am.”

One month later, Hudgens elaborated on how she made the first move when she originally met the baseball player. “I fully just slid into his DMs and was like, ‘Hey, it was nice to meet you.’ So I think there is no shame in making the first move,” she said on The Drew Barrymore Show in May 2021.

“I’ve gone to a lot of games, way more than I have in my entire life condensed into a year. I love going and supporting and cheering him on,” the actress told Entertainment Tonight in November 2021. “But for the premiere days, he’s like, ‘It’s game day, babe. It’s so nice. I get to come to your game.’ And I’m like, ‘Yes! Same thing.’ It’s great, he’s amazing.”
She added that her relationship with Tucker feels different than her past romances.
“It’s just easy. We’re like the same person, very much the same person, but with different interests,” Hudgens said. “We have the same spirit, I think. We’re both just energetic. We want to have a good time, easy, goofy. It’s cool.”

A source told Us that Hudgens and Tucker “are very in love” and “have gotten to the point of their relationship where they have gotten serious and are committed to each other.” While she was “committed to her career and not in that headspace right now where she’s focusing on marriage,” the source noted that it was possible he would “get down on one knee and propose” because he is “quite the romantic.” In the meantime, the couple viewed moving in together as their “next step.”  
Amid their busy schedules, they still found time for one another. “They are super understanding of each other’s careers and give each other space to be free and thrive,” the insider added. “They both have accepted the fact that their lives, including their relationship, are in the spotlight despite both of them being private. They really make an effort to see each other as much as they can but also miss each other when they are apart — it makes their reunions that much more special and meaningful.”

“I always thought I would be married at 25, because that’s when my mom got married, and then when that didn’t happen, I was like, ‘Oh, OK. So we’re just going to shift everything back a bit.’ I always thought that around 36, 37 is when I would want to have kids, and that still plays,” the actress told Nylon about her shifting plans. “I don’t feel panicked about it.” During the interview, Hudgens also recalled how Joe Jonas played a role in her meet-cute with Tucker. “I’m not going to call it a celebrity Zoom, but it was a Zoom meditation group that Joe Jonas put together,” she shared. “I did not expect it at all. I don’t think if I entered a meditation Zoom, I’d be like, ‘This is where I’ll meet my person.’ I just showed up and I was like, ‘Who the f–k is that?’”
