The pop star and producer have been in a relationship since last year, and Selena Gomez and Benny Blanco are navigating their long-distance phase with love and creativity. Gomez shared a heartwarming handwritten message from Blanco on her Instagram Stories on Wednesday (March 20), ahead of one of their virtual hangouts.

The Rare Beauty founder snapped a photo holding up a pink handmade card from Blanco, featuring a cute flower sketch and the words, “Happy first virtual date! – Benny.” The couple went public with their romance in December, and Gomez confirmed via Instagram comments in January that they had been dating for six months at that point. They’ve been spotted together at various events, from courtside at an L.A. Lakers game to the Emmys.

In February, Gomez posted a Valentine’s Day selfie with Blanco, expressing her love for him. She also celebrated his birthday earlier in the month on Instagram, praising his emotional endurance, talent, humor, and kind heart.

In an interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe in February, Gomez spoke fondly of Blanco, emphasizing the importance of mutual respect and understanding in their relationship. She described feeling safe and experiencing growth through their connection.
