In the adorable snap, the Rare Beauty founder could be seen sporting a warm, tan sweater as well as cream-colored sweatpants that had a floral detail on the right side.

'Yay!' she excitedly exclaimed as she talked to Saldana and further gushed, 'I'm so excited,' before the reel ended

Her brunette locks were parted in the middle, and easily swept back into a simple up do, allowing loose strands to border the sides of her face.

Gomez opted for minimal accessories, and added a pair of oval-shaped sunglasses that offered a fashionable flare to the look.

Selena was pictured sitting at a bar inside a spacious restaurant, with Blanco sitting next to her.

He gently wrapped his arms around the Only Murders In The Building actress and laid a gentle kiss on the back of her head.

The lovebirds were confirmed to be dating late last year in December when the beauty went public with the budding relationship on Instagram.

Since then, Gomez has shared sweet moments from their romance on social media and most recently, Benny touched on the topic of marriage with the star.

He also stated that having children is his ‘next goal’ during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show.

At one point, Stern said that he predicted marriage in their future and Benny replied with, ‘You and me both…I gotta get my act together!’

Howard also asked, ‘When will you propose? You should make the announcement now. When are you going to propose to your very famous girlfriend Selena?’

While recently talking to The Hollywood Reporter after the screening, Saldana expressed, ‘We all cried. I was telling Selena that today there’s a sense of calm.’

‘Maybe because there was so much energy and adrenaline leading up to yesterday’s premiere with the positive reception, now I feel like I’m having an out of body experience.’

And during the screening, Gomez once again made jaws drop while donning a figure-hugging, black dress that contained a white, off-the-shoulder trim on top

Selena – who also joined in on the interview – added, ‘I was very nervous because this is a project that is unlike anything I’ve ever done before.’

‘Even though I have such a small part, it’s such a big and special project that I feel so lucky that I was able to be a part of it. I felt better after the premiere, less nervous.’

The day after the premiere, Gomez stunned while making an appearance during a photo call for the movie.

She was elegant in a strapless, red dress that had floral details along the neckline and also slipped into a pair of sleek, closed-toed red pumps.

Her hair was parted to the side, and effortlessly flowed down past her shoulders in light waves.

She added a pair of sparkling, silver earrings as well as a few chunky rings on each of her hands that offered a flashy flare.
