American actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens gained recognition from her role as Gabriella Montez in the High School Musical film series. After rising to popularity, Hudgens consistently found herself in the spotlight, either from her on-screen charisma, melodious songs, or her high-profile dating life.

Whether it be a professional career or a love life, Vanessa seems to have really good luck. The year 2023 saw the You Are the Music in Me singer's wedding with her long-time boyfriend, Cole Tucker, marking a milestone in her romantic journey. In this article, let's take a look at Hudgens' romantic side and her boyfriend-turned-husband.

Vanessa Hudgens: She Is A Wife Now!

Yes, Hudgens is married to her professional baseball player Beau Cole Tucker. Their dream-like wedding took place in the Azulik City of Arts in Tulum, Mexico, on December 2, 2023. The Beastly actress described the planning for marriage as extremely overwhelming.

Vanessa Hudgens found this beautiful place for the wedding when suggesting her friend for a vacation. She was scrolling on Instagram and saw Azulik. Hudgens recalled saying, 'Oh go to Azulik—this place is so freakin’ beautiful,'.

An idea clicked right there in the mind of the Fit Right In singer. She told her then-boyfriend, Cole, that Azulik would be a perfect location for their marriage ceremony. Seeing her loved friends and family gather around on their big day was quite emotional for Vanessa.

Hudgens said that she’d cried off most of her makeup. Nonetheless, a quick touch-up later made her picture ready again. The American singer-cum-actress posted a picture of herself by the beach with the caption, 'She’s a wife now'.

Hudgens And Tucker's Romance Began From Zoom Meditation

Like Josh Radnor and Jordana Jacobs, the Say Ok singer Vanessa met her husband in a meditation retreat. Except it was a Zoom meditation in the lockdown of 2020, hosted by Jay Shetty, the author turned monk. Hudgens remembers asking her girlfriend who he was.

After looking at Zoom Square, the High School Musical alumnus found the name of the baseball player. The next day, she slid into his DM and made a first move saying, 'Hey, it was nice to meet you'.

The romantic couple only made things public in February 2021. And, after two years of announcing their relationship, i.e., in February 2023, Vanessa and Cole got engaged in the romantic city of Paris, in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Although it was the singer Hudgens who made the first move in their love life, Tucker was the one to take it to the next level. He dropped to one knee and proposed to Vanessa with an oval-shaped diamond ring on a thin gold band.

Who Has Vanessa Hudgens Dated?

Even before meeting her husband, Hudgens's love life was far from mundane. She had her fair share of time with some handsome dudes. As aforementioned, her love life is equally intriguing as her professional life.

Vanessa Hudgens had dated several men. Her list of ex-boyfriends includes some big names too. From Zac Efron to Kyle Kuzman, the American acting and singing sensation has dated all. 

Let's take a brief look at her personal life and ex-boyfriend before she found her happily ever after with her American baseball shortstop husband.

Zac Efron

Zac Efron is Hudgens's reel-life romance turned real. The former couple met during their time at the High School Musical. Vanessa said they began dating immediately as the pair could sense the chemistry between them since the audition phase.

The High School Musical co-stars did not make their relationship until 2007. In a 2010 interview with Glamour, Vanessa said, 'I mean, he wasn't the guy that he is today. Like, he had a gap in his teeth ... [He's] just grown-up,' However, the same year, Efron and Hudgens went separate ways. He was also romantically linked with Alexandra Daddario.

Josh Hutcherson

After breaking up with one co-star, Vanessa jumped to Journey 2: The Mysterious Island co-star Hutcherson. In February 2011 rumors swirled around that the couple dated. It seemed confirmed after Josh, Connor Hutcherson's brother, brought the singer as a date on the Independent Spirit Awards.

However, the relationship was confirmed during a 2012 interview with Today Australia. Upon asking how long the couple had been going out together, Hutcherson and Hudgens exchanged surprised looks and said, 'We're not — we were at one point, that was a while ago ... we're really good friends now.'

Austin Butler 

While the dating rumors of Vanessa and Josh were still fresh, the Beastly actress met Austin Butler in September 2011. Unlike her previous relationship, Vanessa's love life with Austin was not so private. Hudgens announced her new relationship with Butler in 2014 wishing him a birthday.

While together, the former couple shared some lovely times together and worked on their long-distance romance. Despite this, the workload and distance took a toll on their love life leading to their break up in 2020. Butler is currently dating Kaia Gerber.

Kyle Kuzma

Shortly after her breakup with Butler, Vanessa was spotted having lunch with professional basketball player Kyle Kuzma. But, the couple was not rushing on commitment but took things slow.

A source reported to People, "They're seeing each other, but taking things slow and just having fun at this stage." Apparently, things did not work out between the pair. Now, Kuzma is dating Winnie Harlow.
