Meet my man! Vanessa Hudgens kissed and cuddled new boyfriend Austin Butler as they stopped for a milkshake on Saturday night
They had been rumoured to be dating earlier this week after he was spotted leaving her house.
But now Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler have officially confirmed their relationship, by indulging in a passionate display of affection over a milkshake.
The new couple struggled to keep their hands off each other as they popped in to Bob's Big Boy diner in Burbank to grab a sweet treat in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Looking smitten with her new beau, Vanessa leaned in for a kiss and cuddle before the couple left the diner arm in arm.
But a source close to the High School Musical actress, who split from Zac Efron earlier this year, said she isn't taking her new relationship too seriously.
The insider told Hollywoodlife.com: 'It isn’t a serious thing at all. She’s having fun hooking up with him but no official relationship has flourished yet.
'It’s a friends with benefits situation.'

Yesterday, Butler, a 20-year-old Disney actor, was spotted leaving Vanessa's home in Los Angeles.
Wearing black jeans, black trainers and a printed white t-shirt, the blonde star walked out of the 22-year-old High School Musical star's house to a car parked nearby.
Austin, who once played Jamie Lynn Spears's love interest on Zoey 101, recently co-starred in the Disney movie Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure, alongside Vanessa's best friend Ashley Tisdale.
