Selena Gomez is "desperately" trying to have a baby with The Weeknd. The former Disney star wants to have a child with the Starboy singer to keep their romance alive.

A source told Radar Online: "Some of Selena's family believes that she is trying to trap him into getting her pregnant."

"She is not pregnant just yet, but she has been telling her friends and family that she wants almost nothing more than to have a baby right now!" the insider added.

"She actually thinks that it is her time to have a child because it is the only thing in life that she has not yet experienced!" the source continued.

Gomez's mother, Mandy Teefey was just 16 when she gave birth to Gomez and raised her as a single parent after divorcing her father Carlos when Gomez was five. The two moved to California from Texas so she could pursue her career as a child star.

Gomez won her first role alongside Demi Lovato on Barney & Friends in 2002, when she was just nine years old. She won her big break on Disney show Wizards Of Waverly Place.

Meanwhile, Gomez and The Weeknd made their red carpet debut at the 2017 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The 27-year-old Starboy hitmaker kissed the 24-year-old singer on her cheeks while on the red carpet.
