Selena Gomez Reveals Long-Held Adoption Plans

Selena Gomez Reveals Long-Held Adoption Plans

In a recent exclusive interview with Times Magazine, American singer and actress Selena Gomez shared that her plans for adoption were in place long before she began her current relationship with boyfriend Benny Blanco.

The revelation provides a rare glimpse into Gomez’s personal aspirations and her journey through solitude and self-discovery.

Gomez, known for her candidness about her mental health struggles and personal life, discussed how the idea of adoption came to her during a particularly lonely period. “I was alone for five years, and I got really used to it. A lot of people are afraid of being alone and I probably tortured myself in my head for like two years being alone. Then I kind of accepted it,” Gomez told Times Magazine.

The former Disney star explained that this acceptance of solitude led her to formulate a significant life plan. “Then I came up with my plan, which was I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone,” she added. This decision, Gomez revealed, was a means to combat the loneliness she had felt and to find fulfillment in a different way.

Now 31, Gomez’s personal life has taken a new turn with her relationship with music producer Benny Blanco. Speaking about Blanco, the singer expressed deep affection and appreciation for their bond. “I just cherish every moment with him. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that he’s not going anywhere any time soon,” she shared, highlighting the stability and joy he has brought into her life.

Despite the happiness in her current relationship, Gomez emphasized the importance of keeping her romance discreet. “It’s important for me to keep certain aspects of my life private, even when I’m happy,” she noted, stressing the value of maintaining a balance between her public and private life.

Gomez’s openness about her past struggles and her thoughtful approach to future plans resonate with many of her fans who admire her resilience and authenticity. Her story of contemplating adoption as a single woman reflects a broader societal shift towards diverse family structures and the acceptance of different paths to personal fulfillment.

As Gomez continues to navigate her career and personal life, her willingness to share such intimate details offers inspiration and relatability to those facing similar life decisions and challenges. Whether or not she follows through with her adoption plans, Gomez’s journey underscores the importance of self-acceptance and the various forms love and companionship can take.
