Who Is Zac Efron’s Girlfriend, Vanessa Valladares? Here’s What We Know

From his high-profile romance with Vanessa Hudgens to his rumored fling with former co-star Alexandra Daddario, it's safe to say that Zac Efron's dating history includes a long list of famous faces. And if we're being completely honest, it's been pretty challenging to keep track.

Though it seems like it was only yesterday when we learned about his relationship with Halston Sage, the High School Musical alum has now been spotted with Australian model, Vanessa Valladares, on multiple occasions since July. But does this mean that they're serious? Here's what we know about Zac Efron's girlfriend.

1. Who Is Zac Efron's Girlfriend?

Valladares is a 25-year-old Australian model who has partnered with brands like Love St., Spell, Of the Sun and RVCA. Her Instagram page features a plethora of stunning fashion looks and selfies, but judging by her feed, it looks like Valladares is also a big fan of traveling. The model has enjoyed adventures in places like India and Indonesia.

2. How Did Efron And Valladares Meet?

According to Daily Mail, the Baywatch actor met Valladares while she was working as a waitress at Byron Bay's General Store café in Australia. Also, one source confirmed to People that their first encounter happened "earlier in the summer," which means they most likely met in June.

It's rumored that Valladares has since quit her waitressing job, however, and is now spending much more time with Efron. The news came shortly after reports of Efron wanting to move to Australia, due to the coronavirus and privacy concerns.

3. Are Efron And Valladares Living Together?

The Daily Mail reported that Valladares has moved into Efron's rented Belongil Beach home and, considering their many outings together, there could be some truth to the rumor.

"They started hanging out in July and recently took a ski trip together," the source told People, referring to an adventure at Thredbo village. "You can tell that they are having fun. She spends a lot of time at this house."

4. How Long Have They Been Dating?

It's unclear how long Efron and Valladares have been together. However, the two were spotted hanging out for the first time in July, which means that they've been dating publicly for about two months.

5. Are They Instagram Official?

It's worth noting that the couple are currently not following each other on Instagram. Efron boasts nearly 44 million followers while Valladares has over 21,000, but neither have interacted with the other nor dropped the slightest hint that they're officially dating on the social platform.

Efron's most recent post features a casual snap of him laying in a hammock while Valladares's post includes solo pics and videos of herself relaxing by the sea.

6. When Did Efron And Halston Sage Break Up?

After dating for about three months in 2014, Efron and his former Neighbors co-star, Sage, started dating again in January. It's unclear exactly when they split up, but since word got out about his budding relationship with Valladares in July, we can assume that they parted ways long before then.

After enjoying his ski getaway with Valladares, Efron was seen enjoying a casual brunch with Valladares in September. They may not be Instagram official (yet), but this new romance definitely seems promising.
