Selena Gomez says she wants to quit acting to get married, be a mom

Selena Gomez is ready to wave goodbye to Hollywood.

The singer/actress revealed she eventually wants to get married and become a mom — and she’s prepared to step away from acting to focus on her personal life.

The “Only Murders in the Building” star made the revelation on Friday’s episode of the TaTaTu video podcast “Giving Back Generation.”

“I hope to be married and to be a mom,” the 30-year-old told hosts Raquelle Stevens and Ashley Cook, who also happen to be her longtime friends.

“Eventually, I’m going to be tired of all of this, so I’m probably just going to devote most of my life to philanthropy before I peace out.”

The “Same Old Love” hitmaker went on to reveal how watching her 8-year-old half-sister Gracie Teefey grow made her confident she wants to be a parent.

“She puts things in perspective,” Gomez said of her sister. “I have to basically watch this little person grow into a human being. There’s no better feeling in the world. I kind of feel like a parent in a way, even though I’m not.”

“It’s so rewarding to just see that life was so simple at one point,” she added. “I want to enjoy life the way she enjoys life.”

It’s not the first time the “Ice Cream” singer spoke about plans of having a family.

During an appearance in June on The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast “Awards Chatter,” Gomez said her move from Texas to Hollywood made her put having kids on the back burner.

“I would have four kids, for sure,” she said. “Maybe not planned, maybe planned, maybe both. And there’s nothing wrong with the life I would have led.”

“I just know that that’s not my path, and I’m really grateful I had my mom to give me that opportunity to be what I want to be,” she added.

Though she’s currently single, romance might be on the horizon for Gomez after she was spotted getting flirty with Italian movie producer Andrea Iervolino while yachting in Positano, Italy on Wednesday.
