Vanessa Hudgens wraps her arms around hunky new man… 10 months after her split from Austin Butler

Vanessa Hudgens seems to have finally moved on since her split from ex Austin Butler earlier this year.

Tucker, 24, is an American professional baseball shortstop and outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball, having made his MLB debut in 2019. 

She beamed as she wrapped her arms around Tucker, while they waited at a valet stand to get their car after a romantic dinner date at the Canyon Country Store in Los Angeles.
