Another snap gave fans a close-up of the stunning ring, which Hudgens showed off while standing in front of the Eiffel Tower, no less.

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland shared her excitement for Hudgens by commenting on the post with some lyrics from the Wicked song 'Thank Goodness'.

Emily in Paris' Lily Collins wrote: "Ahhh congrats mama!!!!!!", while Hudgens' former High School Musical co-star Bart Johnson (who played Coach Bolton) commented: "YEEEAAAAAAAHHHH!!! So stoked you ended up with such a good dude. CONGRATS!!"

The upcoming fourth season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is set to see many of the original Wildcats return to East High for a reunion, including Monique Coleman, Alyson Reed, Bart Johnson, Corbin Bleu, Kaycee Stroh and Lucas Grabeel.

While neither Hudgens nor Zac Efron have been confirmed, fans got excited when they were both sighted visiting the Salt Lake City high school just weeks apart.

However, Hudgens later admitted that she only took the nostalgic visit because she was already in Salt Lake for her boyfriend's baseball game.

"So he was at the field and I had rented a car and I was like: 'I want to go check it out and take some pictures for old time's sake,'" she said.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series streams on Disney+.
