The “High School Musical” star, 34, and the MLB athlete, 26, have reportedly been in a relationship since 2020

Vanessa Hudgens is now engaged to professional baseball player Cole Tucker, according to reports.
On Thursday, celebrity tabloid TMZ reported that Tucker, 26, proposed to Hudgens, 34, near the end of 2022.
The couple traveled to Paris in November last year, which is where the MLB athlete might have popped the question.
Hudgens and Tucker have reportedly been in a relationship since 2020.
In May 2021, the “High School Musical” star shared on “The Drew Barrymore Show that she first met her now-fiancé, who made his MLB debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2019 and currently plays for the Colorado Rockies, during a Zoom meditation group call.

I get on the Zoom, and I’m like, ‘Who is that?’ I found him, and we started talking. If I want something or someone, I’m going after them. 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.
