Hudgens announces engagement on Instagram


Congratula­tions are in order for Vanessa Hudgens and Cole Tucker!

Hudgens took to Instagram last week to reveal that she and the profession­al baseball player are officially engaged.

“YES. We couldn’t be happier,” Hudgens wrote, along with two photos: one of Tucker holding her and and other a close-up of her engagement ring, with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

According to Us Weekly and E! News, Hudgens and Tucker went Instagram-official on Valentine’s Day 2021. Since then, Tucker has been a regular fixture of Hudgens’

Instagram, where the former “High School Musical” star has posted photos of them celebratin­g holidays like Halloween, Thanksgivi­ng and Christmas.

Tucker has shared photos of Hudgens on his Instagram too, including photos of the two hugging on a baseball field and posting together on Valentine’s Day last year.

Celebritie­s flooded Hudgens’ comments to congratula­te her on the engagement.

“Ahhh congrats mama !!!!!! ” wrote “Emily in Paris” star Lily Collins.

“Love you guys,” wrote Ashley Benson.

Sarah Hyland commented lyrics from the musical “Wicked”: Couldn’t be happier, / Right here / Look what we’ve got / A fairy-tale plot, / Our very own happy ending”

“MY GOSHHHH congrats my love !!!! ” wrote “Emily in Paris” star Ashley Park

“CONGRATS v!!!” wrote Brittany Snow. “Love love love”

Hudgens previously dated Oscar nominee Austin Butler. Following their split, Hudgens told Entertainm­ent Tonight in November 2020 that her next partner didn’t necessaril­y need to work in entertainm­ent.

“Your girl’s open,” she said. “I feel like at the end of the day, it’s just about having similar fundamenta­ls and wanting the same things. Like, I am not picky, really . ... I know what I want and I’m like, if someone comes into the picture and can give me all those things, then great, it doesn’t matter if they’re in the public eye or not — if anything I prefer them not to be but we’ll see, we’ll see.”
