KEY POINTS

  • Vanessa Hudgens and Cole Tucker were first rumored to be dating in November 2020
  • Earlier this month, Hudgens called Tucker "all I need" in an Instagram post
  • Tucker described Hudgens as his "awesome" girlfriend

Vanessa Hudgens sent her fans into a frenzy after posting a photo of her kissing her boyfriend, Cole Tucker, on Instagram.

The “High School Musical” star took to social media Thursday to share the photo of them on what seemed to be a gondola ride. “Missing u @cotuck,” wrote Hudgens in the caption. “Breakfast sooooon,” replied Tucker to her post.

Cole is currently in Pennsylvania with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Earlier this July, he shared some snaps from a weekend he shared with Hudgens in New York City, while his team was competing against the New York Mets.  

Hudgens was first linked to the 25-year-old outfielder in November, but it wasn’t until Valentine’s Day this year they made their relationship Instagram official. In an interview with ET last April, she described Cole as her “perfect boyfriend.”

“Me and Cole met on a Zoom meditation group,” she told the outlet. “Very random, yes. Zoom, you’ve got to love it.” 

“He’s just kind of perfect for me. I am happy. I really am,” she continued. “I think that it’s also so important to stay grateful for everything that you have in life. I’ve been making that a priority, and I feel like it’s just been making magic happen all the more.”

Earlier this month, the actress also called Tucker “all I need” in an Instagram post after cheering on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Citi Field as the team went up against the Mets. One of the photos she posted showed Hudgens cozying up to Tucker in a denim jumpsuit and boots as her boyfriend wrapped his arm around her back.

Tucker has also never been shy about his relationship with Hudgens. Back in March, he described her as “awesome” and said in an interview with a local news outlet how much he adored his girl. “I got a friend and she’s cool,” he told CBS Pittsburgh. “She’s awesome. I love her, but I don’t want to be treated any differently than Mitch Keller having his wife come down, or Ke’Bryan having his girlfriend come down.”
