Actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens shared exciting news on the red carpet at the 2024 Oscars.  

She is expecting her first child with professional baseball player Cole Tucker. Vanessa, who hosted ABC's pre-Oscar show, walked the red carpet in a figure-hugging, long-sleeved black dress. 

The dress showed off her growing baby bump.

"Oscar’s 2024! One for the books," the 35-year-old wrote on Instagram after her big announcement. 

Her comment section was flooded with messages of congratulations.

"Aaaaah!! Congrats!!! Gorg as always," Brenda Song, who has two children with Macaulay Culkin, said. 

Soon-to-be mom of three, Jenna Dewan said: "Gorgeous mama!"

Ashley Benson, who gave birth to her first child with billionaire heir Brandon Davis in February, wrote: "I love you, my sweet mama."

Vanessa and Cole tied the knot in December. They held a destination wedding for close family and friends in Tulum, Mexico. 

The pair met during a Zoom meditation group in 2020. After the meditation, Vanessa made the first move when she sent him a message.

"I’m such a go-getter. If I want something or someone, I’m going after them. I fully just slid into his DMs and was like, ‘Hey, it was nice to meet you.’ So I think there is no shame in making the first move. If you want it, why wait for someone else to give you what you want?” she revealed in an interview on 'The Drew Barrymore Show'. 

And now they are married with a baby on the way!
