Who knows Zac Efron loves Australia—he chose to move there and happened to stumble upon an Aussie girl and now his relationship may be part of what leads him to stay and live there ~forever~. People report that the Hollywood heartthrob, 33, and his new girlfriend Vanessa Valladares, 25, are now sharing a home in Byron Bay. Whew, things have really escalated, a source said.
“Zac and Vanessa are very happy,” the source started. “They celebrated Zac’s birthday with friends before the weekend. Their relationship is very serious. Vanessa lives with Zac in Byron Bay.”
As per reported by People, the couple first met in June. “Zac met Ness earlier in the summer,” the source said. “They started hanging out in July and recently took a ski trip together. You can tell that they are having fun. She spends a lot of time at this house.” Vanessa (who accidentally happened to have the same name as Zac’s ex gf, Vanessa Hudgens lol?) worked at the Byron Bay General Store & Cafe but has also done some modeling.
Last month, Zac Efron was spotted doing some house hunting in Byron Bay. “It really seems he plans on staying in Australia permanently,” the source said. However, Vanessa did not appear to share any public birthday tribute to Zac on her Instagram (she hasn’t posted anything in three weeks), nor do they follow each other on the platform—even though the two were photographed this weekend at Zac’s birthday celebration.
Australian radio personality Kyle Sandilands was among the guests at the party, and he did gab a bit about the newly lovebirds. Apparently Vanessa planned the surprise party for Zac, Sandilands shared, via Daily Mail: “Vanessa invited me. You couldn’t get a lovelier, sweeter girl. She knew everything, and she put everything together. She’s a sweetheart.”
Zac Iefron is truly happy Down Under with her, he added: “He absolutely loves Australia. “He’s in love with this girl, Vanessa. They’re a beautiful couple. They do everything together. They’re just sweet.” AHHHHH where can I order my own Zac Efron? 🙁
