Selena Gomez shared that she had initial plans to adopt and be a single mom before she fell in love with her current beau, Benny Blanco, who recently hinted at his desire to marry and have kids with the singer-actress.

In a new interview with TIME magazine, Gomez was asked about the previous statement of his boyfriend on marrying and settling down with her, to which she responded, “He can’t lie to save his life. If he’s asked a question, he’ll answer it.”


When asked if having a partner is helpful or irrelevant to dealing with feelings, the “Who Says” singer remarked that Blanco is not her only source of happiness as she has mastered the art of being alone.


“It’s a little irrelevant, only because he isn’t my only source of happiness,” said Gomez. “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 that I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone,” she said, adding that she met Blanco at a time when she least expected.

The 31-year-old singer-actress expressed her admiration for Blanco’s ability to not care about the hurtful things people around them say and said she’s certain her boyfriend is here to stay.

“He has such 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,” she explained.

Four years after they first collaborated on a song, Blanco and Gomez officially confirmed their relationship in December 2023.
