Fans of High School Musical (2006) fell in love with Vanessa Hudgens in her role as Gabriella Montez. As Gabriella struggled with her relationship with Troy and being true to herself, viewers loved following the story in all three movies. Now, Hudgens has found her real happily ever after.

Married in Mexico

This weekend, Vanessa Hudgens, 34, and her fiance, professional baseball player Cole Tucker, tied the night in Tulum, Mexico.

A picture of Hudgens in a casual white dress barefoot on the beach surfaced, causing speculation that the two made it official on Saturday.

Hudgens’ fellow High School Musical star and friend Monique Coleman also posted that she was in Tulum, Mexico, over the weekend enjoying “paradise.” This added to the speculation that Coleman was there to support her friend during her big day.

More posts have surfaced in the past few days, proving that the two love birds tied the knot over the weekend.

The two began their relationship in 2020 through a Zoom meditation group call. The couple made their red carpet debut together in November 2021 during the premiere of Hudgens’ film Tick… Tick… Boom! (2021).

In February, the couple announced their engagement. Hudgens quickly commented on how much she enjoyed the security of being a fiance. “There’s a sense of security. You feel so safe. It’s the best thing ever. I love being a fiancĂ©e.”

Although Tucker is quiet about their relationship, Hudgens has been open in interviews and on social media. “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.”

Planning for the Wedding

During an interview, Hudgens was also vocal about the difficulties of planning the wedding, stating, “I kind of just want to elope. I really, I’m lost.”

Hudgens and friends celebrated with a bachelorette weekend in Aspen, Colorado, to prepare for the wedding.

Although she seemed concerned about where to have the wedding, Hudgens and Tucker seemed to find the perfect location to tie the knot this weekend.

Hudgens Dating Life

Dating wasn’t always easy for Hudgens. She dated Costar Zac Efron from 2006 to 2010. Following their breakup, Hudgens was tied to dating actor Austin Butler from 2011-2020. Finally, she found her happily ever after in 2020 when she met MLB player Cole Tucker.

We wish the two of them all the happiness and joy as they begin their married life together.




About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
