Gomez and Blanco have frequently shared their light-hearted and romantic moments via Instagram in the early days of their relationship.
Blanco last week took to Instagram with a shot in which he held a publicity photo of Gomez, while the actress was was seen holding her head in the background.
In the photo – which she signed, ‘Rock on!’ with the inscription ‘XO’ – Gomez was pictured in character as Alex Russo on the Disney series Wizards of Waverly Place.

Gomez is an executive producer on a recently-announced sequel series, which will star David Henrie, who starred alongside Gomez on the original series.
The superstar entertainer is slated to make a cameo on the upcoming sequel show. In January, Gomez and Henrie were pictured with the actors who played their parents on the series, Maria Canals-Barrera and David DeLuise.
Gomez and Blanco were seen taking in Grammys proceedings earlier this month, as they were spotted at Gucci’s Grammys afterparty at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.
Gomez on December 7 confirmed the romance when she liked an Instagram post from the account @popfactions that reported the ‘rumored’ romance; after the account published another post that read, ‘Selena Gomez Seemingly Confirms That She Is In A Relationship,’ Gomez wrote, ‘Facts.’
Gomez subsequently took to Instagram Stories with a black-and-white image of herself in which she appeared to be cuddling with Blanco, and later tangled with fans who said he had spoken negatively of her more than three years ago.
Blanco has been involved in the industry for more than 15 years as a musical artist, producer, and songwriter.
He has collaborated with a bevy of big name artists – including Gomez herself, on tracks such as 2023’s Single Soon, and his 2019 song I Can’t Get Enough.
Blanco has also worked with Gomez’s ex Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Lizzo, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, SZA, Ed Sheeran and Keith Urban, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Blanco established himself earlier in his career working for Dr. Luke’s Kasz Money Productions.

As a solo artist, he released his first album Friends Keep Secrets in December of 2018. The record, which topped out at 41 on the Billboard 200, included contributions from Bieber, Halsey, Calvin Harris, Omar Apollo and Gracie Abrams.
He has had six singles hit the Billboard Hot 100 over the last five years, including 2018’s Eastside (with Halsey & Khalid); as well as 2019’s Roses (with the late Juice WRLD and Brendon Urie) and I Can’t Get Enough (with Gomez, Tainy and J Balvin).
In recent years, he’s charted with the 2020 tracks Lonely (with Bieber) and Real S*** (with Juice WRLD) and 2022’s Bad Decisions (with BTS & Snoop Dogg).
Blanco chat with The New York Times in 2018 about his skillset when it comes to making music.
‘I couldn’t sit down and play a concert for you or really wow you on any instrument,’ he said. ‘What I can do is meet an artist, know what type of song I think we should make and be their therapist, make everyone feel comfortable.’
Gomez has past been in high-profile relationships with stars such as Bieber, The Weeknd, Zedd, Nick Jonas, and Taylor Lautner.
Blanco was past rumored to be in a romance with Elsie Hewitt, a 27-year-old model-actress from London (who has since been linked with Jason Sudeikis, 48).

Aside from his musical endeavors, Blanco has also taken in interest in culinary arts, as he’s set to release a cookbook in April titled Open Wide
Aside from his musical endeavors, Blanco has also taken in interest in culinary arts, as he’s set to release a cookbook in April titled Open Wide.
He announced the forthcoming project in an Instagram post in November, saying he’s been into cooking since he was 13, when a friend of his got a George Foreman grill.
‘We would invite friends over, get high and make the most elaborate sandwiches our prepubescent minds could fathom,’ Blanco said. ‘I know what you are going to say… cooking is scary. You don’t know where to begin. It can be overwhelming.
‘And cooking for a group of people, f*** that.. but i’m telling u, once you get into it, it’ll be ur new addiction, it’s like meditating. Slicing an onion is like taking a Xanax to me.’
Gomez commented on the post ‘Finally’ with an emoji of raised hands.
