Selena Gomez had some life plans all laid out before she met boyfriend Benny Blanco.

In a new interview with Time, the Only Murders in the Building star opened up about how she’d been planning on becoming a mother by the age of 35. “I was alone for five years, and I got really used to it,” she told the outlet. “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 she met Blanco—a romance she said happened very organically. The Rare Beauty founder recounted that Blanco brought her to a birthday party to meet a friend of his, and that she quickly realized she liked him. “It just happens when you least expect it,” she said.

Back in December 2023, Gomez confirmed her relationship with the music producer when she left a string of Instagram comments that authenticated rumors they were in a relationship. Since then, she has posted many cuddly photos of herself and Blanco on the social media platform.

And while her plans might have changed since entering into a relationship, it’s no secret that Blanco is excited to have kids, too. During a visit to The Howard Stern Show earlier this month, Blanco was asked about the prospect of children, to which he replied, “That’s like my next goal on the box. I have a lot of godkids; I’ve got a ton of nephews. It’s my thing—I love being around kids!” He also admitted that he hopes to marry Gomez.

Gomez responded to those comments in her Time interview with a laugh. “He can’t lie to save his life,” she said. “If he’s asked a question, he’ll answer it.”
