Vanessa Hudgens has shared a proud snap of her engagement ring after her now-fiancé Cole Tucker popped the question.
The High School Musical star has been dating the Major League Baseball player since 2020 after they met on a Zoom meditation group.
Although rumours started circulating that they were engaged earlier this week, they have now made it Instagram official with the recent snap.
Alongside a photo of the pair looking happy together in Paris, Hudgens showed off her massive rock, writing: "YES. We couldn’t be happier."
The 34-year-old actress previously spoke about her relationship with Tucker, 26, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying: "Me and Cole met on a Zoom meditation group. Very random, yes. Zoom, you've got to love it...
"He's just kind of perfect for me. I am [happy]. I really am.
"I think that it's also so important to stay grateful for everything that you have in life. I've been making that a priority, and I feel like it's just been making magic happen all the more."
Friends and co-stars have been sharing their congratulations with the couple while passing their approval of Hudgens' engagement ring.
Emily in Paris star Lily Collins wrote: "Ahhh congrats mama," while Ashley Benson of Pretty Little Liars fame said: "Love you guys."
Fellow High School Musical alum Monique Coleman chimed in to say: "Congrats love! Sooooooooo happy for you!"
Fans are equally as excited for Hudgens and Tucker, with one writing: "So happy for you, you deserve this."
Another person was so excited by the news, they joked: "Just collapsed in the Walmart parking lot."
And a third added: "YES!!!! FINALLY THE POST!!!! Cole you better make this woman the happiest wife ever!"
With nearly 1.8 million likes on the post, it seems everyone is delighted to see Hudgens get her happily ever after.
Last month, the star's ex Austin Butler was slammed by the online community after referring to her as a 'friend'.
The turn of phrase came up as the 31-year-old actor, who dated Hudgens from 2011 to 2020, discussed his role as Elvis in Baz Luhrmann's biopic.
Speaking on The Hollywood Reporter's Actors Roundtable, he said: "The month before I heard that Baz [Luhrmann] was making the movie, I was looking at Christmas lights and there was an Elvis Christmas song on the radio and I was with a friend of mine.
"I was singing along and my friend looked over at me and said, 'You gotta play Elvis.' I said, 'Oh, that's such a long shot.'"
Although the actor chose to keep his 'friend' anonymous, Hudgens herself previously told the same story in 2019 when the pair were still an item.
A clip of Butler's version of events was soon shared on Twitter alongside the caption: "Him calling Vanessa Hudgens a 'friend' PLEASEEEE."
Many others commented on the situation, with one writing: "Men will tell you they love you and then pull some s**t like this."
"Imagine being with someone for so long and they proceeded to call you a FRIEND," said another.
Despite the backlash, it seems like there are no hard feelings between the pair. And now fans are just excited about Hudgens' future with her new fiancé.
