Vanessa Hudgens couldn’t be happier than she is with her new beau, Cole Tucker. The actress, 32, has been dating the 24-year-old Pirates outfielder since 2020, and a source close to Vanessa revealed why he’s “different” to her previous boyfriends.
“Cole treats Vanessa like a queen, he adores her. People were a little skeptical of him at first. I mean, a pro athlete and he’s only in his early twenties, no one really expected it to last,” the insider dished, according to HollywoodLife.
“But he has been very serious about her from the get-go and that has not wavered. He adores her and says all the time that she is his dream girl, it’s sweet.” The High School Musical alum previously dated Zac Efron at the beginning of her career, and fellow actor Austin Butler for almost a decade.
However, another source dished that Vanessa had totally “fallen” for the athlete, and she couldn’t be happier. “Vanessa has definitely fallen for Cole and although it may seem like they might not have much in common, that’s true on some level which keeps the attraction, but they actually do and it’s why they work so well together,” the insider explained.
