The
former "High School Musical" actress has given birth to her first child with husband Cole Tucker, a source told E! News.



The
couple's little one has been up to speed on Hollywood happenings since Vanessa previously announced her pregnancy on the 2024 Oscars red carpet. Then, wearing a black Vera Wang turtleneck dress, the former Disney Channel star happily cradled her growing belly in front of photographers before hosting ABC's "Oscars Red Carpet Show." Later that night, Vanessa was at the annual Oscars afterparty, Vanity Fair, again baring her belly, this time in a black sheer dress by Alberta Ferretti. The 35-year-old shared a photo of herself on Oscars night, writing on Instagram, "One for the books."



And
just like the golden pregnancy reveal, Vanessa and Cole's love story is far from the status quo. The pair ultimately met during the COVID-19 pandemic, at a meditation group call led by Jay Shetty.



"I
was literally on Zoom with my girlfriend and I started talking to her and asking her who he was, and she'd never met him before," Vanessa told Vogue in a December interview. "So I searched his name on Zoom Square and I found him on Instagram, and the next day he DM'd me."



The
Sucker Punch actress, who dated Austin Butler for nearly nine years before splitting in early 2020, was soon looking to start something new. "After our first weekend together, I called my sister and said, 'I think I've just found my future husband,'" Vanessa recalled on Today with Hoda & Jenna in April 2023.



Cole
was all in from early on in their relationship; he publicly dropped the L-word shortly after the couple went Instagram official on Valentine's Day 2021.



That
same month, the baseball player told KDKA, "I have a girlfriend. She's cool." "She's gorgeous." I love her."



Vanessa
and Cole's relationship reached the next level two years later when they got engaged during a romantic trip to Paris.



"It's
the most romantic city in the world," Vanessa told Vogue about the proposal. "I was so surprised. He dropped hints that this was the perfect place, but somehow I forgot because I didn't want to have any expectations from the trip. I just wanted to enjoy it as it was, and he totally surprised me."
