23 July 2017: Selena wears secret message on her pyjama top for her boyfriend

A day after celebrating her birthday with friends and family at a pyjama party at her Lose Angeles home, we noticed the 25-year-old sent a secret message to her boyfriend who was flying back to spend the weekend with her.

On closer inspection of her Instagram posts from her birthday, we spotted Selena wore a sweatshirt designed by Dream Scene Clothing with the word 'loved' emblazoned on the front, which pretty much sums up how she must be feeling right not.

22 July 2017: The Weeknd rushes home to celebrate Selena's 25th birthday

There's nothing quite like the feeling of guilt at the thought of missing a loved one's birthday.

So, that's probably why The Weeknd jetted home following his headlining performance at Headlining Lollapalooza Paris to spend the weekend with his girlfriend Selena Gomez to celebrate her turning 25.

Having celebrated her birthday with close family and friends at her Los Angeles home on Friday night, Selena then welcomed her boyfriend home after he posted the most adorable video to his Instagram Stories of him driving along to his song 'I Feel It Coming'.

23 May: Selena and Abel take their relationship slowly as they separately buy homes

The pair are taking each day as it comes with regards to their relatively new romance as both Selena and The Weeknd have just bought mansions in Los Angeles – separately.

Following the release of her single, Bad Liar, last week and the success of her Netflix series 13 Reasons Why on which she works as executive producer, Gomez has reportedly bought herself a £1.7 million new house in Los Angeles, according to the Observer.

Meanwhile, her 27-year-old boyfriend has also reportedly dropped a staggering £13.8 million mansion in Hidden Hills, California featuring a whopping nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a resort style saltwater pool (because, of course), a wine cellar, 8-stall barn, a guesthouse and five-car garage, according to the Daily Mail.

We're just happy to see the pair celebrating their independence.

22 May: Selena and The Weeknd might be collaborating on new music together

It's like our prayers have been answered.

The Wikipedia page of songwriter/producer Max Martin – who has collaborated on tunes for the likes of Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Usher and Taylor Swift – has given a clue as to Gomez's number one choice when it came to collaborating on her up-coming single, 'In Her Element'.

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

The page lists Nicki Minaj, Ryan Tedder (of One Republic fame) and Selena Gomez as songwriters on the track but also named – yeah, that's right – The Weeknd as a co-artist.

'In Her Element' (featuring The Weeknd)' reads the caption.

The 24-year-old shared three photos of a mirror, each with the words 'Bad Liar' written on them in what appears to be in purple and red lipstick.

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

From the looks of Selena and The Weeknd (real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye) at the Met Gala, we have a feeling the words 'Bad Liar' won't refer to her 27-year-old beau, although, there is one person she might be sending a subtle/not-so-subtle message to (*cough* Justin Bieber).

7 May 2017: Selena takes her family to The Weeknd's concert

Having received the stamp of approval from her mother with a comment on Instagram, the 'It Ain't Me' singer invited her family and friends to watch her boyfriend's concert in Dallas, Texas over the weekend.

The 24-year-old attended the 'Starboy: Legend of the Fall' gig with her cousin, Priscilla DeLeon, and nephew, Aiden.

Priscilla later shared photos of her famous cousin on the day of the show, captioning the image on Instagram: 'Still got it.'

The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) is currently on the European stint of his tour and celebrated his 23-year-old girlfriend's visit to the 'city of love' by treating her to a date night ahead of his concert.

The pair were spotted leaving La Réserve hotel, with Selena wearing a black turtleneck jumper to keep her warm from the cold February weather, mere streets away from Bella Hadid – The Weeknd's ex-girlfriend – who is currently staying in the same city at the Hotel George V hotel.

The following day, Selena posted a video to her Instagram story of her cuddling up in her duvet while a male voice can be heard rapping in the background – a voice thought to be that of her new beau.

Despite keeping their romance on the low-down in recent weeks, Selena has just been spotted wearing a T-shirt from her beau's tour merchandise range, featuring two little red lightning bolts and a red cross.

On Monday, Gomez's mother, Mandy Teefey, posted a photo to Instagram of her family game night. Mandy made the joke her daughter's date for the night was talent manager Ray Hughes, but if Selena's T-shirt is any indication, we have a feeling a certain Monsieur Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) has well and truly stolen her heart.

And, we're not the only ones to have spotted Gomez's clue to her blossoming new relationship.

Fans of both Gomez and The Weeknd have taken to Twitter to confirm the news that Gomez is, in fact, wearing his T-shirt.

Showbusiness is a fickle world.

Cast your mind back to 2015, when The Weeknd featured his then rumoured girlfriend Bella Hadid in the music video for his hit single 'In The Night', which ultimately confirmed to the world that yes, the pair were indeed an item. I mean, how could they not be with that kiss.

Yes, all of the models featured look exactly like Selena.

Of course, this could be a coincidence, but earlier this week Gomez and Abel gave the biggest hint of the century that they were more than just friends, with the 22-year-old starlet seen kissing her rumoured beau, resulting in a swift 'unfollowing' from Hadid on Instagram.

So many Selenas!

We can't wait to see this one play out.
