EXCLUSIVE: Selena Gomez: “I Really Wish I Had a Sibling”

A few months ago, we asked Selena Gomez if it ever gets lonely being an only child. “I do have my moments where I really wish I had a sibling,” Gomez said, explaining that she longs for the kind of sisterly bond shared by her friends—the Kardashian sisters. “Kim is so sweet and the whole family is really wonderful, so whenever I’m with them, I see that they have this sisterly bond and I really wish I had a sister like that to grow up with.”

Well, Selena is going to get her wish very soon! People.com is reporting that Gomez is about to become a big sister. The 19-year-old star posted the baby news herself, along with a photo of her mother Mandy Dawn Cornett and her stepfather Brian Teefey on her Instagram account on Friday.

"Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news," she wrote in the post. "My mommys carrying my baby brother or sister :) I'm the happiest girl in the world!"

Selena must have known that her mother wanted to have another baby. Last summer, we asked Gomez if she had any siblings and she replied, "No, not yet. Winking...Winking.” 

Congratulations to Selena and her family!
