Tisdale shares her daughter, aged two months, with Cristopher French, whom she initially met over eight years ago.

Hudgens notably served as a bridesmaid during her former castmate’s nuptials.

The two stayed strong as a couple for several years before Tisdale announced her pregnancy through a duo of photos that were shared to her Instagram account in September of last year.

The actress recently spoke at length with Yahoo, and during the sit-down, she remarked that her daughter’s name was inspired by a significant part of her childhood.  

Tisdale recalled: ‘I thought about the song my mom used to sing to me when I was younger. She used to pull up my stockings and the song goes “reach for the stars/there goes Jupiter/here comes Mars.”‘

‘Jupiter is such a powerful planet and I was just like, “It’s so beautiful, I love the name,” and my husband loved the name,’ she added.
