Selena Gomez is concluding the year 2023 in the company of her new partner. The 31-year-old singer, who recently disclosed her relationship with Benny Blanco, shared an affectionate photo of herself and the music producer on her Instagram Story last Saturday.
The snapshot captures the couple standing on what appears to be a wooden deck, with a picturesque body of water in the background. Gomez, dressed in a dark oversized sweater, beams at the camera while Blanco, 35, embraces her from behind, wearing a vibrant printed hoodie and planting a kiss on the neck of the “Rare” songstress.
Gomez seemingly confirmed her relationship with Blanco, with whom she has been romantically involved for over six months, in early December. The confirmation came when a fan account posted a black-and-white image of them together, subsequently shared by Pop Crave. Responding to comments on the fan post, Gomez expressed her feelings about Blanco, stating, “He is my absolute everything in my heart,” and in another response, she emphasized, “Then why has he been the best thing that’s ever happened to me? The end.”
Hints about Gomez’s relationship status and her new partner’s identity emerged on December 3 when she replied with a simple “Facts” to a post on a now-deleted fan account that proclaimed, “Selena Gomez Seemingly Confirms That She Is In a Relationship.” She further fueled speculation by sharing a black and white selfie on her Instagram Story, leaning against what appeared to be Blanco’s chest.
Since making their relationship public, Gomez has shared numerous endearing snapshots of herself and Blanco, including cozy selfies, a picture of them sharing a kiss, and playful photos from an art date. Notably, Gomez has been seen wearing a diamond “B” ring, a clear nod to her boyfriend.
