The heart wants what it wants! Selena Gomez’s mom is finally giving her daughter’s new boyfriend The Weeknd her seal of approval.

Proving moms will be moms, Mandy wrote, “Glowing, smiling, looking health and equal love. Mama is happy,” under a photo The Weeknd uploaded on the social media platform.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the nice words and were quick to screenshot the evidence before it got lost in the comment section under a photo that has been liked over 2 million times.

However, this is a big change for Mandy, who was initially hesitant to embrace the Candian singer.

“Mandy has heard the dirty and drug-related lyrics to Abel’s songs and she doesn’t approve of Selena hanging out and partying with him,” a source told Life & Style exclusively. “Mandy has met Abel and thinks he is respectful in person, but she doesn’t think he’s a good influence on Selena.”

“I had to stop because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside,” she said on stage. “I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.”

“It’s serious, very serious,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “The Weeknd has already told Selena that he loves her and vice versa. He speaks a couple of languages and has made sure to confess his love in English, French, Spanish, and Amharic.”
