Selena Gomez Reveals She Planned To Adopt A Baby At 35 If She'd Stayed Single!

Selena Gomez Says She Planned To Adopt A Baby At 35 If She Stayed Single

Selena Gomez wants to become a mother one day — one day soon! And she was dead set on it whether she had a man in her life or not!

In an interview published with TIME on Wednesday, the actress opened up about how she eventually got so used to being alone after not dating for five years that she made alternative plans for motherhood. She says she planned to adopt if she “had not met anyone” by the time she turned 35! Selena shared:

“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.”

But then Benny Blanco came along…

Selena worked with the music producer several times since 2015. She told the outlet she thought of him as only a friend for the longest time. The Only Murders in the Building star even asked him to play matchmaker and set her up with someone he knew at one point! But things changed when Benny took her to meet his friend at a birthday party. It suddenly clicked for her, and she realized she liked him! She said:

“It just happens when you least expect it.”

After six months of secretly dating last year, Selena confirmed their relationship in December. And as for where they stand on starting a family almost a year into their relationship? The couple seem to be on the same page about having kids in the future! Benny said on The Howard Stern Show earlier this month that he wants to marry and have children with Selena, not necessarily in that order! He noted that having a child is his “next goal!” Wow!

Good thing, too, since Selly is 31 now. So she’s pretty close to the point where she was just going to break that emergency glass! LOLz!

Whether they agree on the same timeline is unknown! But Selly was set on 35 for starting a family before dating Benny, so we doubt she’s going to extend that. If anything, we’re guessing she’ll want to start sooner! When asked about her boyfriend’s interview, she said:

“He can’t lie to save his life. If he’s asked a question, he’ll answer it. 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. 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.”

Aww! Selena can’t know for sure what will happen in the long run with Benny. Only time will tell! However, she does know one thing — the man is staying in her life for the foreseeable future! She said:

“I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that he’s not going anywhere any time soon.”

Benny is here to stay for now, Selena fans! Reactions, Perezcious readers? Do you think they’ll end up staying together and having kids? Let us know in the comments!
