Zac Efron may be getting serious in his rumoured secret relationship with an Australian waitress named Vanessa Valladares.
The 32-year-old Hollywood star is said to have fallen for the brunette beauty – with the pair spotted enjoying a skiing trip together Down Under last week.
Zac is said to be so enamoured with Vanessa that he is planning to move to Australia permanently to be with her – and would only return to the USA on work trips.
While speculation of their blossoming romance is rife amid reports the High School Musical star has tried, and failed, to snap up a dream home in Australia.
Whispers about Zac and Vanessa’s romance reached a new level over the weekend after they were spotted flying to Ballina, New South Wales, following a skiing holiday in the nearby Thredbo mountains.
Zac reportedly met Vanessa in July when she worked as a waitress in a coffee house – before she quit her job.
In August, the Daily Mail Australia claimed Zac had cancelled plans to return to Los Angeles – with Vanessa rumoured to be his reason for wishing to remain Down Under.
A source told the publication: “He was only planning to fly home if he had to. He didn’t really want to go back to America.”
The outlet went on to suggest Zac was successful in extending his tourist visa to remain in Australia.
While the Australian Daily Telegraph has reported the star has been attempting to snap up a dream home in Byron Bay.
They reported last month that the star had: “inspected and put in an offer” on a home – but was outbid by a rival buyer.
Australia has some of the tightest travel restrictions in the world due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The country has closed its borders for all travel, except only for Australian citizens and permanent residents or those with an exemption – while all arrivals to the country are to undertake a two week quarantine at a designated location upon arrival.
While Aussie citizens, including dual nationals, and permanent residents are also required to provide an exemption to leave the country unless ordinarily resident in a country outside of Australia.
