Vanessa Hudgens is not afraid to tell about her love. In an interview, she added that-
“It’s so weird, believe me, I still cannot get over the fact that it happened,” Hudgens, 32, told Barrymore. “I remember in quarantine I was like, ‘Cool, so I’m single now and I can’t meet anybody.’ I was like, ‘I guess I’ll go on a dating app,’ but I always said I would never go on a dating app and then I find myself on a dating app. I was like, ‘I hate myself, I’ve got to get off of that’ and then I kind of just gave up for a minute.'”
During an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” the former “High School Musical” actress revealed how she met her current boyfriend, Cole Tucker, during quarantine. Hudgens previously dated Austin Butler for nine years before breaking up last year.
“They added me to a group text and everyone is sending gifs of themselves and it’s like Joe Jonas, Wilmer Valderrama,” said Hudgens. “So I send a gif of myself and then there is a gif in the group chat of a baseball player sliding into a base. I thought it was a joke, so I just responded, ‘Hot.'”
Hudgens added that she had a zoom video call with Tucker and then both decided to chat via messages.
“I mean, I’m such a go-getter. If I want something or someone, I’m going after them,” the actress said. “I fully just slid into his DM and was like, ‘Hey, it was nice to meet you.’ I think there is no shame in making the first move. If you want it, why wait for someone else to give you what you want?”
The couple confirmed their relationship on Valentine’s Day with a photo of them kissing on Instagram.
According to the reports, it is revealed that Tucker told about her relationship in an interview KDKA.
“I got a girlfriend and she’s cool,” Tucker, a shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates, told the outlet in March. At the time, Tucker said Hudgens could visit him during spring training.
“She’s awesome. I love her, but I don’t want to be treated any differently than Mitch [Keller] having his wife come down, or Ke’Bryan [Hayes] having his girlfriend come down,” Tucker said, adding, “She’s great. She’ll be around.”
