‘Single mom soon’

The Love On singer said, "I was alone for five years, and I got really used to it. A lot of people are afraid of being alone and I probably tortured myself in my head for like two years being alone, and then I kind of accepted it. Then I came up with my plan, which was I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone.” When Selena Gomez met music producer Benny Blanco, she thought of him as a friend but gradually developed feelings. “It just happens when you least expect it,” she recollected.

My own fans, who I adore and feel like have shaped who I am, will say the most hurtful things to me about how I live my life. But he has the strength in him that none of that noise fazes him. It’s really impressive, and I just cherish every moment with him. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that he’s not going anywhere any time soon.” Selena Gomez is happy with her boyfriend Benny Blanco, and wants to see where life takes them.
