Vanessa Hudgens Started Dating Her BF After Meeting on Zoom and Sliding Into His DMs


Vanessa Hudgens teased a new relationship back in November 2020, but she waited until Valentine’s Day to go Instagram official with Major League Baseball player Cole Tucker. “It’s you, it’s me, it’s us. @cotuck,” she wrote alongside a pic of the pair kissing (her in a bucket hat I really want). 

While Hudgens later revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she met her man on Zoom, she just gave Drew Barrymore all the details about how it went down. It all started after her breakup from Austin Butler in January 2020, just a few months before the COVID-19 lockdown began.

“I remember in quarantine I was like, Cool, I’m single now and I can’t meet anybody, so I guess I’ll go on a dating app,” she said during her appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show. “But I always said I would never go on a dating app, and then I found myself on a dating app and I was like, ‘I hate myself!’” So Hudgens stopped using the app and “gave up for a minute.” That may have been the right move, considering all the celebs supposedly being exposed on Raya and other apps. 

While Vanessa Hudgens’s quarantine was off to a bad start after that COVID-19 scandal, things turned around for her love life, at least, when a friend invited her to join their weekly Zoom meditation group.

“Everyone’s sending, like, GIFs of themselves,” she told Barrymore regarding their group chat, which apparently included Joe Jonas and Wilmer Valderrama. “Then there’s, like, a GIF in the group chat of a baseball player, and he’s slamming onto a base and I thought it was a joke. So I just responded, ‘hot.’” But when she got on the Zoom, Cole Tucker was actually there.  

Barrymore then asked Hudgens who made the first move. “I’m such a go-getter. If I want something or someone, I’m going after him,” she replied. “I fully just slid into his DMs and was like, ‘Hey it was nice to meet you.’ I think there’s no shame in making the first move. If you want it, why wait for someone else to give you what you want?”

Great advice.
