Vanessa Hudgens's dating life seems as beautiful as she is. After sparking rumors with Los Angeles Lakers player Kyle Kuzma, the 31-year-old star seems to have moved on to a new man.

Sources have revealed that Hudgens' latest romance is blooming with MLB player Cole Tucker and the couple was reportedly seen having dinner together on Sunday, November 22, at Laurel Canyon in California. "They had a romantic dinner outside under the stars," an eyewitness shared with E! News. "They shared wine and food and had a great two-hour meal. Vanessa was giddy with laughter. She was looking over at Cole and couldn't contain her smile." The source added said that the couple was holding hands. Vanessa was seen donning a black dress and a fuzzy grey coat and Cole rocked Nike sneakers, denim jeans and a matching sweater and a beanie.

"Date night," Vanessa cryptically wrote with a picture of her holding a pink rose on Instagram last weekend. However, last week the actress herself said that she was taking a break from dating given the Covid-19 pandemic. Contrary to what she had said, her social media pictures demonstrate the bubbling romance between the couple. "I just finished another movie yesterday and, you know, it's taken very seriously and to keep everyone safe there are precautions And at times it feels extravagant, but it's what you have to do to keep everyone on the production safe, so yeah, definitely no dating for me," she told ET Online.

Born on July 3, 1996, in Phoenix Arizona, Tucker is a professional baseball shortstop and outfielder for the Pittsburg Pirates of MLB. He made his MLB debut in 2019. The Pittsburgh Pirates picked Tucker in the first round, with the 24th overall selection, of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft. On June 12, 2014, he signed up for a signing bonus worth $1,800,000 and spent 2014 with the Gulf Coast League Pirates, where he batted .267 with a .724 OPS. He has spent 2015 with the West Virginia Power where he posted a .293 batting average along with 25 stolen bases and 13 doubles.

As soon as the pictures of Hudgens with her new beau made its way to social media, people started reacting to it. A user said, "Cole Tucker really cuffed Vanessa Hudgens.... chase your dreams kids." Another wrote, "Wait. As in Cole Tucker, the luscious-locked Pittsburgh Pirates player?"



 

 



 

 

A fan said, "Cole Tucker going on a date with Vanessa Hudgens is the greatest accomplishment of any Pirates player in 20 years." Another commented, "Every boy growing up in the early 2000s had dreams of dating Vanessa Hudgens. Cole Tucker is at that age where he was probably the same way. He’s actually living it out now. GOAT."
