Selena Gomez attended the Emmys with her boyfriend Benny Blanco, and took the opportunity to introduce him to some other important men in her life, her Only Murders in the Building co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short. TMZ shared pics of Gomez walking the music producer up to Martin and Short for a handshake and a chat behind-the-scenes.
An eyewitness told the outlet that “everyone got along great” and it looked from the outside like the first meet up for the Hulu stars and Blanco. They then all headed to the event space for their seats together. Blanco did not pose on the red carpet with Gomez, but she did stop to pose with Martin and Short.
Blanco and Gomez have reportedly been dating since last summer, but they debuted their romance in early December. In several Instagram comments, Gomez called Blanco her “absolute everything” and stated that he “has treated [her] better than any human being on this planet.”
At the time, a source told Entertainment Tonight, “Selena and Benny have been casually seeing each other for a while and more recently, it became more official. Things have been going really well between them and Selena is happy. She thinks Benny is very funny and of course, extremely talented. Selena is in a great place in her life and feels content and relaxed. She is enjoying where things are going.”
Things have only gotten deeper since then, with another insider telling ET last week, “[She] feels very at home and at ease with Benny. Their friends, family and loved ones on both sides are all supportive and happy to see what they think could be an amazing and long-lasting relationship between the two of them.”
They went on, “Benny finds Selena to be brilliant beyond belief. He thinks she is extremely talented, genuine, sweet and intelligent. He respects everything that she stands for and admires her ability to speak her personal truths and share what she’s gone through with the world.“
“Selena appreciates Benny’s intellect, overall passion in life, his art, dedication, and values,” the source continued. “He’s very respectful and meshes well with everyone in her inner circle.”
