The Strange Way Vanessa Hudgens Met Her New Boyfriend

Vanessa Hudgens has been sporting this glow — and it has nothing to do with a new skin regimen. The Princess Switch actor has a new man in her life and he is drop-dead delectable. Hudgens hinted that she may be dating in an Instagram post in November 2020, and that very night the Daily Mail spotted her cozying up to Cole Tucker, an MLB athlete. The two remained private about their relationship status until Hudgens revealed that they were dating in a Valentine's Day social media share where they locked lips and effectively staked their claim on each other.

Who is the lucky guy? This time around, Hudgens is dating a hunk who's eight years younger than her. People got the scoop on the baseball player and dished that he was from Phoenix, Arizona. He made his baseball debut as a shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates in April 2019. However, there's so much more fans want to know about the couple, who are not afraid to pack on the PDA. For instance, where did they meet? Was it love at first sight? Here's what we know about Hudgens and Tucker's sweet romance so far.
