There’s a very short list of things we love more than love, that’s why we are so glad to be beginning with somewhat of a love story. We are ready to dish all there is to know on Vanessa Hudgens boyfriend and if there’s time we may also take a trip down memory lane with the ghost of relationships past.
Do not be mistaken, that is not all we have for you today, since we are meeting the boyfriend we might as well meet the family. So without beating around the bush too much, here’s all you need to know about Vanessa Hudgens’s boyfriend(s).
Vanessa Hudgens Boyfriend
With great fame comes maximum scrutiny, so it’s no surprise that today we have our noses poked in Vanessa Hudgens relationships, past and present. The star is presently dating Austin Butler, the star of The Shannara Chronicles, but before that, she had been linked to a couple of other people in Hollywood.
In the beginning, there was Drake Bell. Yes, people, the same Drake Bell from the Nickelodeon show Drake and Josh. Their Disney- Nickelodeon relationship caused quite a stir, it was their very own,
on/off-screen Romeo and Juliet story.
OK, it never got that deep, but their relationship was tagged scandalous, partially because it was alleged that her leaked nudes were actually meant for his eyes only. Theirs was a relationship that caused quite a buzz, but it could not hold a torch up to the next relationship on the list.
We would not be surprised if some people still think that Zach Efron is still Vanessa Hudgens’s boyfriend, sometimes we forget that the two are no longer together. They met on the set of Disney Channel’s High School Musical and decided to take their on-screen romance off screen.
Theirs was a very public relationship that got a lot of media coverage and perhaps that was a contributing factor to their break up. Nevertheless, the relationship lasted 5 long years and in a recent interview, the actress revealed that along with the good times came some pretty hard times too.
On the topic, she shared this tidbit of information, ‘ I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up. Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares, then I realized that’s not what that’s about. Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice.’
Though she overcame her irrationality, their relationship could not overcome the cold clutches of distance. That brings us to her next love interest, Josh Hutcherson, her co-star in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. After filming the movie together, they hit a couple of red carpets together too.
If there really was anything, it was a short-lived fling, as it fizzed off not too long after it started. Just as we mentioned earlier, these days, the actress has got herself a new Beau and his name is Austin Butler. They have been together for five years now and the romance does not seem to be fizzing out, hopefully, there are wedding bells in their future.
Vanessa Hudgens’s Sister
Yes, people, Vanessa is not the only ‘Hudgens’ in town, she has a little sister who is following closely in her footsteps. Her name is Stella Hudgens and she was born on November 13, 1995. She has come a long way from when she just used to accompany her sister to A-list events, now the younger Hudgens has a spotlight of her own.
She starred in the movies, 16 and Missing (2015), The Memory Thief (2007), and Single with Parents (2008). She is 7 years younger than Vanessa but these days they are practically twins, is anyone else hoping for an on-screen collaboration?
Vanessa Hudgens’s Parents
It’s time to meet her Vanessa Hudgens mom and dad; her mother, Gina (née Guangco), held a succession of office jobs, and her father, Gregory Hudgens, was a firefighter, their names are an indicator that they have some sort of mixed descent.
Vanessa’s dad was of Irish and Native American descent, and her mother, a native of Manila, Philippines, is of Filipino descent. Sadly, her father who passed away on January 30, 2016, after battling stage 4 cancer, it was a trying time for the whole family.
This is what she told People on the subject of her dad’s demise, ‘There are highs and there are lows, it sucks, but death happens. It never makes it easier but it happens to all of us. It’s just something we have to get through until we all meet again in heaven.’ Our hearts go out to their family.
