Vanessa Hudgens and baseball player Cole Tucker have officially tied the knot.

The High School Musical alum, 34, and her fiancé, professional baseball player Cole Tucker, wed Saturday in Tulum, Mexico sources confirm to What’s Trending.

Over the weekend, posts popped up on X of Hudgens posting on the beach in a white dress. More speculation came up when the fellow HSM costar Monique Coleman posted a video on her Instagram Story showing a tropical background of Tulum.

The pair sparked dating rumors in November 2020, when the two were seen holding hands in Los Angeles. The two shared the news of their engagement in February.

The two met on a Zoom meditation call and had been infatuated with each other since.

“I get on the Zoom, and I’m like, ‘Who is that?’ ” Hudgens shared on The Drew Barrymore Show in May 2021. “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,” she noted.

The actress and professional baseball player made their first red carpet debut back in November 2021 at the premiere of the film Tick … Tick … Boom! 

In an interview, Tucker even bragged about his “cool” girlfriend, telling reporters at the event of Hudgens, “She’s awesome. I love her.”

Previous to their marriage, Hudgens and Tucker shared moments online including a wholesome Earth Day and even rubbing their feet together and exchanging a Valentine’s Day kiss.

“Real magnetic love is out there,” Hudgens wrote on Instagram earlier this year. “What a journey it was to get here but so worth it to get to my forever @cotuck 🥰. Happy Valentine’s Day.”

The singer and actress previously noted that wedding planning for the big day was “hard” in a conversation with Drew Barrymore.


Hudgens admitted at the time that she was struggling to figure out where to hold the ceremony. “I don’t know, finding a venue is tough,” she said, adding, “I kind of just want to elope. I really, I’m lost.”

When asked about Tucker’s thoughts, Hudgens replied, “I mean, he just wants to get married to me. He’s like, ‘Whatever you want, babe.’ ”

Hudgens previously told PEOPLE back in March that the engagement left her surprised although she knew the moment would eventually come along.

“I was extremely surprised,” she said of Tucker’s proposal. “We had definitely talked about it, but I did not expect it to happen the way that it happened and the moment that it happened. It definitely caught me off guard and I was bawling my eyes out.”

Hudgens got candid about her feelings over getting engaged at an appearance on Today. 

“It feels amazing. It’s so funny, I was talking about this with Cole. … People are always like, ‘Does it feel different? [Do] things feel different [getting engaged]?’ ” she shared. “That was always my question normally, but now I get to be asked it.”

“And you know what, it actually does,” the Knight Before Christmas star continued. “There’s a sense of security. You feel so safe. It’s the best thing ever. I love being a fiancée.”

Hudgens added that she knew Tucker was “the one” very early on. “After our first weekend together, I called my sister and was like, ‘I think I just found my future husband,’ ” she said, noting that she was immediately drawn in by “who he is.”

In October, Hudgens celebrated ahead of her wedding with a bachelorette weekend in Aspen, Colorado, which was attended by pals including Sarah Hyland.

“The most iconic bachelorette weekend in Aspen thanks to my GIRLS and @airbnb. Couldn’t ask for a more perfect home base 🥰,” Hudgens wrote in her Instagram caption, as she posted a video of her pre-wedding celebrations.
