Vanessa Hudgens and her husband, baseball player Cole Tucker, have welcomed their first child together.

The 'High School Musical' star was pictured leaving a hospital in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, on Wednesday. A nurse pushed her in a wheelchair while she held her newborn. Cole carried out their hospital bags. 

The couple has not shared any details about their bundle of joy, including their gender and sex. They also haven't revealed the baby's name. 

TMZ shared snaps of the moment Vanessa left the hospital. 

UPDATE: Vanessa has slammed the paps for disrespecting and exploiting her family's privacy "during this very special time".

Vanessa Hudgens Wedding 

Vanessa and Cole married in an intimate ceremony at Azulik City of Arts in Tulum, Mexico. The actress and singer always knew that she wanted her wedding to be warm and spiritual. 

"Our window for getting married was so small because Cole’s [baseball] season is very long. I felt like ‘Mexico it is!’ I also wanted somewhere very spiritual. So I went to the hotel and got a really long tour, where I myself was not doing well, I was so hot and felt like I was going to faint. At the end of this very long tour, I was like ‘Where would we have our ceremony?’ and they were like ‘Oh, that would be at our museum’ and they said, ‘It’s 45 minutes into the jungle.’ I was thinking, ‘Okay, that sounds aggressive, but I guess I’ll give it a try.’” she told Vogue magazine. 

The museum ended up being the wedding venue of her dreams.

"I knew that it was our place. I felt like I was transported to some kind of utopia, unlike anything I had ever been to before. It was whimsical and magical, and I just fell in love," she told the publication.

Popular life coach Jay Shetty officiated the wedding ceremony. The couple met during one of Jay's online group meditations in October 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Nearly four years later, the are married with a baby!
