Vanessa Hudgens is thrilled to be a new mom, though she wishes she had more control over how the news was shared.

The "Bad Boys: Ride or Die" star expressed her disappointment on Instagram Thursday, writing, "We’re disappointed that our family’s privacy was disrespected and exploited during this very special time due to the greed of a long lens camera feeding the media. Despite all of that, mom, dad, and baby are happy and healthy."

Hudgens was referring to recent reports that included pictures of her leaving a hospital with her newborn. While the circumstances of the announcement were not ideal, her Instagram post served as her first public confirmation that she had given birth to her first child with spouse Cole Tucker.

Waza News has reached out to Hudgens’ representatives for any additional comments.

Back in March, on Oscars night, Hudgens revealed that she and the Major League Baseball outfielder were expecting their first child. The couple reportedly wed in December in Tulum, Mexico, after announcing their engagement earlier last year.

Hudgens and Tucker were first linked in 2020 when she posted a photo captioned "date night" and was later photographed holding hands with Tucker that evening.
