Who says manifestations have a time limit? After all, Cole Tucker may have been on to something.

After photos surfaced of the MLB outfielder on a date with Vanessa Hudgens, fans did a deep dive and discovered he may have predicted their romance all along.

As the 24-year-old tweeted in January 2012, "In search of: A girl who's down to watch High School Musical with me and scratch my back."

Well, maybe wishes do come true. After all, Vanessa played Gabriella Montez in the beloved Disney franchise. And perhaps the only thing better than a girl who's down to watch HSM, is a girl who starred in HSM.

On Nov. 22, paparazzi spotted the couple at Pace in Laurel Canyon, Calif. An eyewitness told E! News, "They had a romantic dinner outside under the stars."

"They shared wine and food and had a great two-hour meal," the insider added. "Vanessa was giddy with laughter. She was looking over at Cole and couldn't contain her smile."

Earlier that night, the 31-year-old took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with a pink rose. Alongside a red heart emoji, she captioned the shot, "Date night."

Her outing with Cole comes 11 months after her rumored romance with L.A. Lakers star Kyle Kuzma. In January of this year, she split from boyfriend of nine years, Austin Butler.

"They're just shooting on two different continents and it's a matter of distance," a source told E! at the time. "There is no bad blood at all, and they have a lot of respect for each other."
