Selena Gomez and producer Benny Blanco officially announced their relationship via Instagram in December 2023.

“He is my absolute everything in my heart,” the “Wolves” singer wrote in an Instagram comment at the time. “He has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Hints of the couple’s relationship were dropped on the Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays TV special when the pop star revealed she had a date right after filming the December 21 episode. Gomez’s best friend and costar, Raquelle Stevens, proclaimed that Gomez will have a new man in time for 2024 to which Gomez responded, “Let’s hope!”

She later confirmed that the two had been dating for “six months” and has openly shared many moments with the producer since.

During an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show,” host Howard Stern said he is “predicting marriage” in Blanco and Gomez’s future. “You and me both,” Blanco candidly replied.

When asked if he has a ring ready to go, Blanco joked, “I don’t have anything. I got no shoes on! I gotta get my act together.”

Earlier in the interview, Blanco noted that his “next goal” in life is to become a father. “I have a ton of godkids. I’ve got a ton of nephews. I love being around kids,” he shared before going on to gush about his and Gomez’s romance.

“When I look at her, I do say, I’m always just like, ‘I don’t know a world where it could be better than this,” he stated.
