Vanessa Hudgens' boyfriend is having a big day.

For those unfamiliar with the significant other of the Hollywood star, meet Cole Tucker, an infielder/outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Tucker, a former top MLB Draft pick, has had an up-and-down career so far, but he's still young, at 25 years old.

On Sunday, Tucker hit a home run off Gerrit Cole.

Hudgens took to Instagram to react to her boyfriend's big game. She's currently at The Oscars in Los Angeles. Tucker, the 24th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft, has been with the Pirates organization for the entirety of his professional career. The Phoenix, Arizona native has a .217 career batting average with five home runs and 33 RBI. Perhaps he's in line for a breakout season in 2021. Tucker and Hudgens began dating toward the end of 2020. They met through a group meditation class on Zoom. Hudgens slid into Tucker's DMs. “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,'” she recalled during an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show” last May. “So I think there is no shame in making the first move. Why wait for someone else to give you what you want?”

Maybe both Cole and Vanessa are in line for big 2022s.
