Selena Gomez reveals adoption plans if she hadn’t met boyfriend Benny Blanco

Selena Gomez reveals adoption plans if she hadn’t met boyfriend Benny Blanco

'Who Says' singer Selena Gomez has been dating the record producer for just over a year

It's been just over a year since musical power-couple Selena Gomez and Benny Blanco struck up a romance, and by the looks of things, their relationship has been going from strength to strength.

The singer-songwriter and actor first publicly confirmed her the status of her love-life with the music producer back in December 2023, with an Instagram snap that showed her wearing a ring with the initial 'B'.

It turned out, however, that the relationship had been going for a while longer, with Selena making it known in response to a social media troll that it had already 'been six months bb.'

And ever since, the couple have shared several glimpses into what makes their relationship special, often uploading sweet snaps together on social media.

This week, however, in a surprise revelation, 'Who Says' hitmaker Selena has that she actually had a back-up plan in place incase she was unable to meet someone she could envisage welcoming a family with.

In fact, the news - which comes just days after long-term ex Justin Bieber announced that he and wife Hailey are expecting their first child together - saw the former Wizards of Waverley Place star admit she'd considered adoption in cases where she hadn't met someone special by the age of 35.

Speaking to press at the Time 100 Most Influential Companies event earlier this week, the star explained: "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."

Selena continued: "Then I came up with my plan, which was I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone."

As it would have it, however, the stars thankfully aligned for Selena, who earlier this year claimed she can see herself settling down with her current beau.

Speaking on Instagram recently, she described Benny as 'the best thing that's ever happened' to her.

She added: "If you actually care about me. This is my happiest. If you don't feel free to say whatever you want. But I will never allow your words to guide my life. Ever. I'm done. If you can't accept me at my happiest then don't be in [m]y life at all."

And Benny's latest interview on The Howard Stern Show shows he's just as crazy about her - as he should be.

Chatting about the prospect of having children with Selena, he revealed: "That's like my next goal on the box. I have a lot of God kids, I've got a ton of nephews. It's my thing, I love being around kids!"

He also shared that he can't believe his luck with Selena, and mused some more about how much he loves her.

He said: "'I don't know a world where it could be better than this.

"She's the coolest, the nicest, the sweetest, like, everything."
