Selena Gomez, the multifaceted artist known for her music, acting, and entrepreneurial ventures, recently opened up about a significant shift in her life plans that occurred after meeting her current boyfriend, music producer Benny Blanco.

The 31-year-old Rare Beauty founder shared her thoughts in an interview with TIME, shedding light on how her relationship with Blanco, 36, altered the trajectory she had envisioned for herself.

Gomez revealed that prior to meeting Blanco, she had spent five years embracing solitude, a period marked by self-discovery and personal growth. “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,” Gomez reflected.

During this time, she devised a plan for her future that included adopting a child by the age of 35 if she had not found a romantic partner.

This plan was borne out of a deep acceptance of her single status and a desire to build a family on her own terms. “I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone,” Gomez explained. However, fate had other plans, and her friendship with Blanco soon blossomed into a romantic relationship.

Gomez and Blanco’s paths crossed in June 2023, and by December of that year, their romance was confirmed publicly.

The couple made their debut appearance together at the 2024 Emmys, capturing the public’s attention and sparking widespread interest in their relationship.

Gomez expressed how unexpectedly their love story unfolded, stating, “It just happens when you least expect it.”

Blanco, known for his work behind the scenes in the music industry, has been open about his feelings for Gomez. He shared his hopes for their future, expressing a desire to marry and have children with her. Despite these aspirations, Gomez remains cautious, mindful of the intense scrutiny that comes with her fame.

Gomez candidly discussed the challenges of living under the public eye and how it affects her personal relationships. “I know what people can do to people I love. 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,” she said.

Despite these concerns, she admires Blanco’s resilience. “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.”

Her relationship with Blanco has brought a sense of stability and joy, yet she remains uncertain about what the future holds. “I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that he’s not going anywhere any time soon,” Gomez remarked, indicating her cautious optimism about their relationship’s longevity.

The couple’s romance has been marked by thoughtful gestures and significant milestones. For their first Valentine’s Day together, Blanco went above and beyond, renting out an entire movie theater and arranging all of Gomez’s favorite foods.

This grand romantic gesture was praised by many, including radio host Howard Stern, who remarked, “You are some boyfriend, you’re knocking it out the park. I see love here, I’m predicting marriage.”


Blanco’s response to Stern’s prediction was equally optimistic. “You and me both,” he replied, hinting at a future proposal. During the same interview, Blanco shared his deep affection for Gomez, saying, “When I look at her … I’m always just like, I don’t know a world where it could be better than this.”

Looking ahead, Blanco mentioned that their first anniversary is approaching, coinciding with Gomez’s birthday on July 22. He hinted at having “some really good stuff” planned for the occasion, further fueling anticipation and excitement among fans and followers of the couple.

Selena Gomez’s journey from planning to adopt a child on her own to finding unexpected love with Benny Blanco illustrates the unpredictable nature of life and relationships.

While Gomez’s cautious approach to their future is understandable given her experiences with public scrutiny, her admiration for Blanco’s strength and their shared happiness is evident.

As the couple continues to navigate their relationship in the spotlight, fans eagerly await what the future holds for Gomez and Blanco, hopeful for more milestones and joyous moments in their love story.
