Congratulations are in order for popstar Selena Gomez and her family because they welcome the birth of a baby girl today! Last month, right around Mother’s Day, Selena confirmed officially that her mother, Mandy Teefy, was pregnant and today we learn that she has given birth to a baby girl. Selena‘s BFF Demi Lavato was the one who broke the news of the baby girl’s birth when she tweeted her congratulations publicly a few hours ago … tho, it remains to be seen if she was actually supposed to say anything just yet. Nonetheless, this is happy news cuz Selena Gomez is now a big sister to a beautiful baby girl!
Selena Gomez has a new baby sister. The 20-year-old pop star’s mother Mandy Teefey gave birth on Thursday at a hospital in Northridge, Los Angeles, with her husband Brian Teefey and other family members by her side. Mandy – who divorced Selena’s father, Ricardo Gomez, when her famous daughter was just five-years-old – got re-married in 2006. The Come And Get It singer revealed the baby news in a message to her fans on Mother’s Day and was recently spotted out with her heavily pregnant mother at the ArcLight cinema in Hollywood. Selena was seen strolling arm-in-arm with Mandy with her step-father walking in front of them after the trio watched The Great Gatsby. Mandy and Brian were devastated when she tragically miscarried during her last pregnancy in December 2011 – at the time Selena cancelled her scheduled concerts in Chicago and Seattle to fly home to be with her grieving mother. But the pop star announced happier news to her fans on Mother’s Day: “Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news…My mommy’s carrying my baby brother or sister :) I’m the happiest girl in the world!”
And X Factor Judge Demi Lovato sent her friend a tweet to congratulate her on gaining a new sister: @selenagomez IS A BIG SISTER !!!!!! #CONGRATSELENA!!!!
Yay, this is really happy news! After Selena‘s mother suffered the heartbreak of losing a baby back in 2011, I am sure the successful birth of this baby girl is just the best news ever. At this point, we don’t yet know the little girl’s name … but my guess is that Demi Lovato will be spilling the beans about the baby’s name any second now ;) In all seriousness, let’s send all of our love and congrats to Selena, her mother Mandy and the entire family on the happy arrival of this baby girl.
