Selena Gomez Reveals Adoption Plans in Candid NY Times Interview: "I Was Going to Adopt at 35 if I Had Not Met Anyone"

In a heartfelt and revealing interview with the NY Times, pop sensation Selena Gomez shared her thoughts on family, loneliness, and her personal journey over the past few years. The interview shed light on Gomez's candid reflections about her plan to adopt a child at 35 if she had not met her current partner, Benny Blanco.

"I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone," Gomez confessed. The singer's openness about her emotional state during a period of solitude offers a rare glimpse into her personal life, beyond the glitz and glamour of stardom.

For five years, Gomez found herself alone, grappling with the fear and acceptance of solitude. "I was alone for five years, and I got really used to it," she explained. "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."

This period of introspection led Gomez to devise a plan for her future that didn't hinge on the presence of a romantic partner. "I came up with a plan to have a family, man or not," she revealed, illustrating her determination to fulfill her dreams of motherhood regardless of her relationship status.

The singer's journey from loneliness to acceptance, and eventually to finding love with Benny Blanco, is a testament to her resilience and strength. Gomez's willingness to speak openly about her struggles and plans provides inspiration to many who may find themselves in similar situations.

Gomez's interview with the NY Times not only highlights her personal growth but also her unwavering resolve to shape her own destiny. As she continues to captivate audiences with her music and acting, this candid glimpse into her life reminds fans of the human behind the celebrity—a woman with dreams, fears, and the courage to embrace whatever comes her way.
