Vanessa Hudgens’ 31st emotional birthday; Ashley Tisdale’s cute post; a surprise from sister Stella!!

Happy Birthday, Vanessa Hudgens!

Vanessa Hudgens of High school musical fame turned 31 on December 14. And it was a rather emotional birthday for the American actress who got a sweet post from her BFF Ashley Tisdale dedicated to her and was pleasantly surprised by her sister.

Ashley Tisdale took Instagram to wish Vanessa a very happy birthday by posting an old GIF of her from the High school Musical. The two have been close friends even before they starred together in the hit music series more than 10 years ago. The American actress writes that she chose the particular gif because Vanessa continues to amaze her. She is Gabriella to her Sharpay, they had met 16 years ago and rest is history. She further wrote that Vanessa is truly the person who understands a large part of Ashley’s life and she cherishes their friendship for this reason. She concludes the post saying, “I love you, Nessa, there’s no one else I’d rather be my absolute self with. Cheers.”

They might have had played foes onscreen but they have been very thick together always and this friendship has continued to blossom more with every passing year. Tisdale had spoken at lengths about their deep friendship a few months back. Earlier this year, Vanessa had sent a huge shout out to Tisdale on her birthday in July as well.

That was not all for the ‘The Princess Switch’ actress, who received an out-of-box surprise, quite literally, from her sister in a foreign country. Hudgens senior was surprised by Hudgens junior in her vanity room when she popped out of a box that was kept in her room as her birthday present. Vanessa took Instagram to post a video where we witness Stella coming out of the box leaving her gobsmacked after which the sisters shared an emotional moment. Vanessa threw her arms around her little sister, clutching her tight and getting teary-eyed over this startlingly beautiful birthday present for her. Calling it the best birthday present ever, the actress writes that she couldn’t have been more thrilled. Her sister popped out of a box in a foreign country to surprise her for her birthday. She also thanked Netflix in her post.

All in all, it was a memorable 31st for the actress. Happy Birthday, Vanessa!
