Selena Gomez, 31, hinted at an intimate encounter with Benny Blanco, 35, when she took to Instagram on Friday with a sweet photo, straight from her bed. In the pic, which she shared to Instagram Stories on February 2, she leaned forward in bed, her bare shoulders visible, and pulled a lush furry gray and white blanket around her. Selena’s gorgeous hair fell down around her, and one of her eyes, closed, was visible. In the background, a small table with a lamp and a window could be seen. “Mornings with you,” she captioned the lovely photo in cursive script. Tellingly, she tagged Benny in tiny, barely visible script as well, indicating the possibility that he’d taken the shot.
Fans in the comments thread of a fan account repost couldn’t contain themselves. “Love them together can’t wait for the wedding,” predicted a follower, with another writing, “You guys are so great together! Perfect match.” Still others, thrilled with the romantic seeming glimpse in the new couple’s relationship, simply weighed in with entire rows of heart emojis. Five days prior to the photo, Selena shared gorgeous, makeup-free selfies while relaxing at a cabin in an undisclosed location.
Selena and Benny have been linked since December of 2023, when the Only Murders in the Building star confirmed they were dating by liking and commenting on a photo of the duo shared to PopCrave’s Twitter (X) account. “He is my absolute everything in my heart,” she wrote. Replying to another fan remark, she gushed, “then why has he been the best thing that’s ever happened to me. The end.”
And doubling down with an apparent diss on exes including Justin Bieber, she responded to a fan with, “lol yeah and he’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts.” In a lengthy retort to yet another comment, she also claimed to be the “happiest” she’s ever been. “I don’t understand. 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.”
The duo was previously seen at Nicola Peltz’s surprise sleepover birthday party in January, sweetly wearing matching pajamas with the rest of the guests.
