Actress debuts baby bump on Oscars’ red carpet


Months after addressing pregnancy speculation, Vanessa Hudgens has finally put the rumors to rest.

The High School Musical alum is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Cole Tucker!

Keep reading to see how she announced the news.

Vanessa Hudgens made the announcement in a subtle way as the host of ABC’s The Oscars Red Carpet Show walked the red carpet dress in a long-sleeved black dress that hugged every curve.

The exciting news comes just three months after Hudgens married baseball player Cole Tucker in Tulum, Mexico.

Just recently, Hudgens slammed pregnancy rumors that first began in October when fans speculated she was expecting.

“I literally just had a run-in with the public taking control over their opinion of me in a way that was disrespectful,” she said on the March 6 episode of the She Pivots podcast. “I went out on my bachelorette party in October and I posted video of me, and there are all these comments that are like, ‘Oh my god, you’re pregnant.’”

In late October, Hudgens shared an Instagram video recapping her bachelorette weekend, but rather than focus on her and her upcoming nuptials, fans honed in on what they thought was a baby bump.

“Why does she look pregnant to me or like she’s trying to hide a bump,” one fan asked.

While another flat out asked if Hudgens was pregnant.

Others were more confident with their comments.

“Pregnant for sure 😍

Hudgens eventually responded to one writing, “Not pregnant so y’all can stop,” followed by an eye rolling emoji.

Remembering the remarks she received on her Instagram video, the actress apologized for not wearing Spanx every day and being a “real woman” with a “real body.”

“Don’t make assumptions in all aspects of life, but especially over other women’s bodies.”

Vanessa Hudgens is right. It’s incredibly rude to make assumptions about a person’s life based on the shape of their body.

That being said, now that she’s officially announced she’s expecting, we’re so happy for her and her husband! Please share to congratulate Vanessa!
