There’s hope yet for those of us looking for love in the time of COVID. Who knows, that random online yoga class may lead to true love. At least that is what happened for Vanessa Hudgens and her new beau, Pittsburgh Pirates’s shortstop, Cole Tucker. Supposedly, Vanessa and Tucker got the googly eyes for each other in a Zoom meditation group last year. I guess they connected over their love of meditation and the rest is history. Their romance started in November but Vanessa and Tucker didn’t make their relationship Instagram official until Valentine’s Day. Vanessa told Entertainment Tonight about her random “hookup”:

In a new interview with ET, the 32-year-old actress reveals she and her new boyfriend actually first connected over Zoom. The two were first spotted together last November, and went Instagram official on Valentine’s Day.

“Me and Cole met on a Zoom meditation group. Very random, yes,” Hudgens tells ET’s Katie Krause. “Zoom, you’ve got to love it.”

“He’s just kind of perfect for me. I am [happy]. I really am,” she continues. “I think that it’s also so important to stay grateful for everything that you have in life. I’ve been making that a priority, and I feel like it’s just been making magic happen all the more.”

Listen, Vanessa has a penchant for dating super hot men (Zac Efron, Austin Butler) and Tucker Cole is not bad on the eyes at all. Anyways, I need to know how these women manifest these men in the most random ways. I literally teach an online yoga and meditation class and a man showing up for the class is the rarest of occasions. Not to be thirsty but perhaps Vanessa’s luck will extend to those of us who lost a year of dating and smutting all over town (it was a rough year for some of us singletons).

Scrolling through their Instagram feeds, they seem to be really into each other. I personally love to celebrate love. Despite the side eye I have been giving Vanessa since last year’s COVID meltdown, I wish her luck with her new fella. Speaking of COVID, hopefully the two stuck to protocols while getting to know each other and didn’t take unnecessary risks. But then again, this is Vanessa “some of us will die” Hudgens. I do like that the two took their time before officially confirming their relationship. It is nice to hold something close to your vest before telling others about it. Perhaps keeping their relationship secret for several months gave them the time to build a strong foundation.

Vanessa has also become a business owner and she has launched her water brand, CaliWater. There is more on the inspiration behind the brand at ET.

    Honestly the first 6-8 months of the pandemic I enjoyed being single. Now I’m starting to get twitchy. I realllllly hope it’s safe enough for a hot girl summer…or hot girl autumn.

      I am doing a hot vaccinated summer and writing about it. I think it’s on a lot of our minds. Those of us who were single when we first shut down anyway.

    Wait— when did she and austin butler break up?

  3. Pix says:

    I think he’s one tall drink of water and also very young at 24. I loved her and Austin Butler and I get why they broke up – he’s off filming the Elvis movie that will make or break his career. I just want her to be happy. Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat. (High School Musical reference. Anyone?)
