Vanessa Hudgens arrived at the Oscars Sunday night with a special accessory in tow. 

The actress and entrepreneur announced her pregnancy while wearing a custom Vera Wang floor length gown that showed off her baby bump. 

She’s set to host "The Oscars Red Carpet Show," the official lead-in to the 96th Oscars, airing at 6:30 p.m. EDT/3:30 p.m. PDT on ABC alongside Julianne Hough. 

This is her third consecutive year hosting the official pre-show. 

"I clearly have a lot to be excited for," she said smiling at the beginning of the show, turning sideways to show off her baby bump, "including being here at Hollywood's biggest night."
