Selena Gomez‘s mom, Amanda Cornett, gave birth last week. She’s 35-years-old, a perfectly reasonable age to have a kid (she was 16 when she had Selena), and doesn’t look a day over well, my age. (Not quite 30.)
Every time someone says Selena Gomes is hot I reach for the phone and start dialing 911 with the intention of having them put on the registered sex offenders list. Then I remind myself that she just has the face of a teenager who hasn’t yet learned about things like faulty metabolisms or lube, and is not actually underage.
Now we know where it comes from! Good genes. The woman in the photo could easily be her sister, kidnapper or polygamist foster mother, but she hardly looks old enough to have a 20-year-old daughter.
“Momma, Brian, and me are all so grateful for all your well wishes,” Gomez tweeted to her 15 million followers on Friday. “My lil sissy Gracie Elliot Teefey was born on June 12th. Luv you all XO”
