Selena Gomez announced her relationship with Benny Blanco in December 2023.

"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, and then I kind of accepted it," the Rare Beauty founder, 31, shared.

"Then I came up with my plan, which was I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone," the actress — who debuted her relationship with the music producer, 36, in December 2023 — revealed. "It just happens when you least expect it."

Although Blanco has shared publicly that he wants to marry and have kids with Gomez, the Wizards of Waverly Place alum was tight-lipped on next steps for the couple.

"I know what people can do to people I love. My own fans, who I adore and feel like have shaped who I am, will say the most hurtful things to me about how I live my life," Gomez gushed. "But he has the strength in him that none of that noise fazes him."
