Vanessa Hudgens married baseball player Cole Tucker in Mexico after meeting on Zoom.

In December 2023, Vanessa said "I do" to Cole Tucker, a professional baseball player.

Their meet-cute was so pandemic! The would-be couple both attended an online meditation in 2020, per Vogue, with the star telling the outlet, “I was literally on the Zoom with my girlfriend, and I started hitting her asking who he was, and she had never seen him before."

"So I proceeded to look on the Zoom square to find out his name and found him on Instagram — and he sent a DM the next day," the entrepreneur continued. The rest was history.

"Finding a venue was the hardest part," she confided to Vogue. "I knew I didn’t want to do it at a beach, at a ballroom, or at a barn — these were all things I didn’t want. Instead, I wanted to be surrounded by nature, greenery, and foliage.”

Thus, Tulum, Mexico made sense.

The wedding itself was "magical," with the actor confessing about her walk down the aisle, "I literally keeled over when I saw Cole and had to take a big breath and had to force myself to keep walking because I could have dropped to the floor.”

After the wedding, things only got more exciting, as Vanessa and Cole soon shared they were expecting a baby.
