Selena Gomez Wishes Benny Blanco a Happy 36th Birthday, Praises Boyfriend’s ‘Loving, Kind Heart’

Selena Gomez posted a sweet tribute to boyfriend Benny Blanco on Friday morning (March 8) in honor of the producer’s 36th birthday. “Happy birthday baby! Your emotional endurance, positive disposition, unbelievable talent (that blows me away), undeniable humor and loving, kind heart absolutely kill me,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I love you,” she added along with birthday cake and crying eye emoji. Blanco responded with a series of emoji, including kisses, hearts and a matching pair of welling-eyes. Gomez’s post also included a carousel of pictures of the happy couple hugging, snuggling, kissing, touching tongues and spinning around on the teacup ride.

The loved-up salute came two weeks after the 31-year-old singer and Only Murders in the Building co-star celebrated the release of her new single, “Love On,” by opening up about the effect Blanco has had on her heart. “Without getting into too much detail, I think it’s just really important to meet someone that respects you,” she told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe of her romance, without specifically naming Blanco. “And I think it’s really nice to also lean on someone who understands the world that I live in.”
