Vanessa Hudgens met Cole Tucker during a virtual meditation group.
The ‘High School Musical’ star, who recently went Instagram official with her new boyfriend on Valentine’s Day (02:14:21), has announced that they first connected on Zoom during the pandemic.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said, “Me and Cole met in a zoom meditation group.
“Very random, yes. Zoom, you have to love it.”
The 32-year-old actress described her new boyfriend as “perfect” for her and insisted that she make it her priority to remain “grateful for anything”.
She added, “He’s just perfect for me. It’s me [happy]. I’m really.
“I think it’s just as important to remain grateful for everything you have in life.
“I’ve made this a priority, and I feel like only magic makes it all the more possible.”
Last month, the 24-year-old shortstop and outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates reported on his “great” girlfriend.
He said, “I have a girlfriend and she’s cool. She’s great, I love her.
“I don’t want it to be like, ‘Oh, Cole is with Vanessa…’ I don’t want to be treated any differently than Mitch [Keller] with his wife or Ke’Bryan [Hayes] to let his girlfriend come down. She’s gorgeous. She will be there. You’ll see it, but you’ve seen the headline, it is what it is. “
After the couple first bonded late last year, a source reported that they officially became boyfriends and girlfriends shortly before the start of 2021.
The insider said, “You are a boyfriend and girlfriend. They rang the doorbell together in the new year. “
Vanessa and Cole were originally spotted having “romantic dinner” together, and sources at the time said Vanessa was “giddy with laughter” and “couldn’t hold back her smile.”
A source said, “They had a romantic dinner outside under the stars. They shared wine and food and had a great two hour meal. Vanessa was dizzy with laughter. She looked over at Cole and couldn’t suppress her smile. “
