TMZ first broke the news of the couple's engagement in early February 2023, with a source close to the couple revealing that Cole proposed to the actress at the end of 2022.
The couple have since confirmed the news via Instagram, with Vanessa, sharing a photo of the ring with the caption, "YES. We couldn't be happier."
Vanessa, 34, and Cole, 27, reportedly met via zoom in November 2020, while virtually attending Joe Jonas’ meditation group.

Who has Vanessa Hudgens previously dated?
After meeting on the set of High School Musical, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens dated from 2006 to 2010.
The former couple have remained friendly, and have looked back on their time together with fond memories.
"We grew up together. It was nice to have someone to share all of those experiences with," the actress said following their split.
For nearly a decade, Vanessa Hudgens was in a relationship with Elvis star, Austin Butler, but the pair announced their split in 2020 just a month before their anniversary.
“Vanessa and Austin are officially broken up, and Vanessa has been telling those close to her about their breakup,” a source confirmed to Us Weekly at the time.
The two were speculated to be together years before Vanessa publicly debuted their relationship in a 2014 birthday post on Instagram, where she called Austin the “love of my life”.
Over the years, the former couple shared many sweet moments together, including when Austin called Vanessa his “rock” at the premiere of The Dead Don’t Die.
While the two never confirmed the reason behind their split, many fans assumed it was due to opposing film schedules and distance.
