Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may keep saying their “just friends,” but Selena’s Wizards of Waverly Place TV mom seems to approve if they were to be having a “budding romance.”
“He’s very sweet,” Maria Canals-Barerra told E! News of Justin. “I’ve met him a few times. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be for two superstars like that to actually have a budding romance, but I wish them the very best.”
“From what I have seen so far he’s a nice young man,” she shared.
And their friendship or relationship or whatever you want to call it doesn’t surprise Maria one bit!
“They probably have a lot in common because they come from a regular life and were discovered young to have special talent and passion for singing and acting,” she said of her 18-year-old co-star and 16-year-old Justin. “And they became superstars at a very young age, both of them. And I think they have the goods. Some people are kind of like pushed into this business.
“I don’t think they were pushed in the business,” she added. “They were genuinely discovered based on real talent.”
So is it possible Selena will bring the Biebs onto her Disney show?
“There hasn’t been any official word on that,” Maria said, “but that would be a fantastic idea.”
