According to PEOPLE, the actress and sports star actually met in a Zoom meditation class. But, it was Vanessa who made the first move and “slid into his DMs.” They were first linked in November 2020 via the media outlet, but didn’t actually confirm their relationship until Valentine’s Day 2021. Since then, neither has been shy about sharing their romance on social media or to the press.

“He’s just kind of perfect for me,” Vanessa gushed to ET; she also revealed to Glamour UK that “He’s his own person. Our interests are very different, but our fundamentals are the same. He’s goofy and I’m very goofy. None of us take ourselves too seriously.”

Cole raved about how “awesome” Vanessa is, saying “she’s great” and that he’s “got a girlfriend and she’s cool,” via KDKA. He may have an awesome girlfriend, but his accomplishments speak for themselves. Cole’s a shortstop with the Pittsburgh Pirates and made his MLB debut in 2019. If you’ve followed Vanessa’s career for a while, then you know of her early success on Disney Channel; or, perhaps you know her from her Netflix work. Vanessa and Cole actually made their red carpet debut at the premiere of her latest Netflix film tick, tick… BOOM!

Their lively nature is definitely seen on social media, with their cute comments and fun captions. The pair celebrated Christmas together this season, and of course, rang in the New Year. They also like to post about each other in everyday life too. See some photos below!

Speaking of Instagram, Vanessa shared a lovely post to her account to celebrate their one year anniversary. She wrote: “1 year down @cotuck ❤️love👏🏽you👏🏽🤟🏽” and Cole actually replied: “The best 🤟🏽🤟🏽🤟🏽🤟🏽🤟🏽” If the duo’s emoji usage is any indication, they’re definitely in sync, and in love.
