Vanessa Hudgens Responds to those Austin Butler Engagement Rumors
Vanessa Hudgens fueled engagement rumors over the weekend after she shared two photos on Instagram that feature her wearing a diamond ring on her left hand. Fans immediately thought the High School Musical alum had gotten engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Austin Butler, and that this was her way of announcing the happy news!
Do we blame them? Did you see the post! We all thought the same, especially because of the cryptic caption she included with the pic. “And then this happened,” she wrote. It's not uncommon for people to announce their engagements this way, hence why we all assume that's what happened.
That's quite a ring! No wonder people were shook. Considering how long she and the actor have been together, we wouldn't be that surprised if they get engaged anytime soon.
The two have been together since 2011, one year after Vanessa split from Zac Efron. She and Zac dated from 2006 to 2010, and although fans were disappointed when they broke up, her relationship with Austin made up for it. They're literally the cutest couple ever.
If they ever break up, we'll give up on love. Fans seem to agree since they were quick to comment on the photo and even congratulated the actress on her engagement. “Hope that’s an engagement ring on your hand,” one fan commented on the pic. “You & Austin are beyond cute together.”
“Is that an engagement ring????” another fan inquired. However, our favorite comment goes a fan named Jeffray, who teased Austin about taking so long to pop the question. “AT LAST!! Seems like your bf took the best decision ever…to propose to you,” he wrote. “Well I would have done that long time ago because women like you are pretty much one in a billion!!!”
Vanessa later took to Twitter to address the engagement rumors. She did so by reposting the same photo and explaining that she was just trying to show off her new haircut. She also explained why she decided to sport her ring on her left hand.
Guysssss. I’m not engaged! I️ posted a pic. Not to show off my ring that I️ happened to throw on that finger after a long day of filming but to show off my haircut Lol 🤦🏻♀️💁🏻 pic.twitter.com/xfgqcFddHt

Well, that definitely set the record straight. We might have all jumped the gun on this one, but it's hard not to when she's wearing a flashy diamond ring on that finger. Now that we know she isn't engaged, we noticed that she wore that same ring on other occasions.
The diamond can also be spotted in this video with Jennifer Lopez:
Oops! Look, we're just excited to see Vanessa and Austin walk down the aisle!
