The Weeknd and Selena Gomez are so cute together, it’d be annoying if we weren’t genuinely happy for them. (Seriously, just looking at their Met Gala pics will make you weak.) Granted, the couple hasn’t really talked openly about their relationship—but they have filled their social media accounts with plenty of sweet moments. We even lost it just last month after The Weeknd posted a photo of Gomez’s new Coach campaign to his Instagram Stories. Fans can’t get enough of them.
And, of course, they were on high alert this weekend with Gomez’s birthday. The pop star turned 25 on Saturday (July 22), which is a pretty big deal—so big that fans started wondering what grand romantic gesture The Weeknd would do to acknowledge it. Release a new song? Shower Gomez with dozens of Olive Garden gift cards? Serenade her over Snapchat?
Nope. The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) did something even better: He flew 11.5 hours from France to Los Angeles to spend time with Gomez IRL for her birthday. (He was in Paris for a concert.) Gomez told her fans this exciting news during an Instagram Live chat on Saturday .
“Abel’s on his way home,” she said with a smile. (One of her friends in the background celebrated by singing The Weeknd’s hit “I Feel It Coming,” naturally.) See it for yourself, below:
The Weeknd confirmed this himself on Instagram Stories, posting a video of a winding highway with the caption, “On my way to you.” (It’s safe to assume this was about SelGo even though he didn’t formally say it.) Check it out:
The couple didn’t post about their reunion, which took place on Sunday, but the paparazzi did catch them leaving lunch and later at the SoHo House in Malibu:
S.O. of the year, am I right? Let the swooning begin.
