Selena Gomez planned her path to motherhood even before her budding romance with Benny Blanco.

The Only murders in the building The 31-year-old actress revealed that she had made plans to adopt a baby at 35 while she was still single.

“I was alone for five years and I really got used to it,” she told Time.

“Many people are afraid of being alone. I probably struggled with being alone in my mind for two years and then I just kind of accepted it.”

Gomez said she had “developed my plan,” which was that she would adopt a child by the time she was 35, when she had “not met anyone.”

However, when her friendship with the 36-year-old music producer turned into a romantic relationship, her plans changed.

“It just happens when you least expect it,” she said.

Gomez said her new boyfriend, who she has been dating since 2023, has blocked out the “noise” when it comes to the “hurtful” things people, including her own fans, say about her.

“I know what people can do to people I love. My own fans, who I adore and who I believe have shaped me, tell me the most hurtful things about the way I live my life. But he has the strength not to be bothered by all that noise,” she told the magazine.

“It’s really impressive and I’m just enjoying every moment with him. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.”

Blanco, born Benjamin Levine, is also open to starting a family with the Wizards of Waverly Place Star.

Earlier this month, the award-winning songwriter said his “next goal” was to have children with Gomez.

“That’s my next goal, to tick the box,” he admitted on The Howard Stern Show.

“I have lots of godchildren and lots of nephews. I love being around children.”

In December 2023, Gomez confirmed that she had been dating Blanco for six months.

According to reports, close friends of the singer believe that she and Blanco will stay together for the long haul.

“[She] feels very comfortable and at home with Benny,” said an insider Entertainment tonight in January.

“Their friends, families and loved ones on both sides are supportive and excited about what they believe could be a wonderful and long-term relationship between the two.”
