Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have gone ahead and made things official. Well, Instagram official that is. The new couple is currently in Italy having a lovely vacation and during their time visiting the beautiful country, they've gone ahead and confirmed the world they're happier than ever together.
It began when The Weeknd shared a photo on his Instagram story of Sel standing in front of the Sandro Botticelli masterpiece painting, The Birth of Venus, in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
Looks like they're taking some time to appreciate all the lovely art Italy as to offer! The Weeknd really captured a stunning photo of the "Same Old Love" singer as she admired the painting and then it was her turn to celebrate their love on her account. That's right, Sel then posted — and quickly deleted — a video of the "Starboy" singer while they were chilling on a boat together. But since she's the most followed person on IG, naturally fans were able to save this cute moment.
Can we talk about how she put that heart-eyes emoji as her caption?! Clearly she is totally smitten. It really seems like this couple came out of nowhere, although they have known each other since they both performed at the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
It's unclear as to when sparks started flying between them, since The Weeknd was dating Bella Hadid up until their split in November of 2016, but these two really seem to be having the best time together. Who knows, maybe we'll be treated to some epic new music from the pair too. Abelena is clearly here to stay. (Fun fact: The Weeknd's actual first name is Abel, hence the ship name!)
