Vanessa Hudgens debuts baby bump on Oscars 2024 red carpet

Vanessa Hudgens already had reason to celebrate when she walked onto the 2024 Oscars red carpet making her baby bump debut.

The “High School Musical” star was all smiles, blowing kisses to photographers while displaying her visible bump in a black long-sleeved dress.

This news comes three months after she tied the knot in Tulum, Mexico, with baseball player Cole Tucker. Her due date has not been announced.

Hudgens was co-hosting the Academy Awards’ preshow with Julianne Hough.

In a March 6 episode of the "She Pivots" podcast, Hudgens slammed pregnancy rumors that started last year, saying people should be “more mindful” of pregnancy comments.

“I literally just had a run-in with the public taking control over their opinion of me in a way that was disrespectful,” she expressed. “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.’”

“I’m sorry I don’t wear Spanx every day and am a real woman and have a real body.”

Calling the remarks “so rude,” she continued, “Don’t make assumptions in all aspects of life, but especially over other women’s bodies.”
