Selena Gomez, Benny Blanco Hang Out With ‘Only Murders’ Costars Martin Short & Steve Martin

Selena Gomez brought Benny Blanco along for a hangout with her Only Murders in the Building costars.

In a photo posted to the singer-actress’ Instagram Story Thursday (May 9), she and the producer — who will have been dating for a year come June — pose in front of a colorful piece of wall art with Steve Martin and Martin Short, who lead the Hulu series alongside Gomez. Also in the photo are filmmaker Judd Apatow and director Steven Spielberg, as well as several other friends.

In the snap, Gomez puts an arm around Blanco’s shoulders, the “Eastside” musician wearing a colorful sweater. Earlier that day, the Rare Beauty founder had also posted a photo of her and her beau’s clasped hands.

The get-together isn’t the first time Blanco has hung out with Gomez, Short and Martin. When the Wizards of Waverly Place alum brought the hitmaker as her date to the 2024 Primetime Emmys, they sat by the two actors during the ceremony. Only Murders had been in the running for best comedy series, which ended up going to FX’s The Bear, and Short had been nominated for best actor in a comedy series, but Jeremy Allen White took the prize.

The post comes a little over a week after the couple celebrated the release of Blanco’s cookbook, Open Wide, with an intimate party together. Gomez posted photos from the gathering — including a couple of the newly minted author’s cake replica of his book — and wrote that she was “so proud.”

“life is better when i’m w u,” Blanco responded in the comments.

The same day, Blanco had made an appearance on TODAY With Hoda & Jenna to talk about Open Wide. He also gushed about his romance with the “Single Soon” singer on the show, telling hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, “I wake up every day, and I look in the mirror, and I’m like, ‘How did this happen?’ But until anyone figures it out, whee!”
