Selena’s embracing all the perks of being a big sister — like cooing over her sweet sis and spending precious bonding time together — but she won’t have to fight her sis about sharing clothes or boys!
There’s a huge age gap between Selena Gomez and her newborn sister Gracie — over 20 years age difference! While Selena is quick to gush over her baby sis’s adorableness at every chance she gets, it seems that she’s taking on a really relaxed, self-described “cool aunt” role in Gracie’s life!
Selena Gomez’s Little Sister: Babysitting Like A ‘Cool Aunt’
Selena’s good for some babysitting — up until a point! “I’m the babysitter that likes to cuddle and I’ll feed her and I’ll sleep with her, but the moment anything happens down there or she throws up I’m like, ‘Here you go mom, thank you!’” Selena admitted on the August 1 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Sounds like she’s enjoying all of the perks of having an adorable baby sister — without any of the work that comes with a baby!
Since Selena’s so much older than her sister, it’s great that she is able to have the fun of big sisterhood without the full-time pressures and responsibility of helping to raise a baby. We’re sure she’s selling herself too short on her babysitting skills — we bet her parents are happy to have an extra adult around!
Selena Gomez & Baby Sister Gracie: ‘We Won’t Be Fighting Over Boys Or Clothes’
“It’s crazy. There’s a 21-year age gap, which is OK, but it’s actually really amazing because we won’t be fighting over boys or clothes, so I’ll be able to be a cool aunt in a way,” Selena told The Associated Press. How cute! But if we were Selena’s little sister, we wouldn’t mind those fabulous hand-me-downs!
The age difference makes Selena and Gracie’s bond very different from the kind siblings that grow up together will have, but think of all the adventures they will have together when Gracie’s older!
And for now? “I’m absolutely obsessed,” Selena gushed over her sister.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Does Selena sound like a cool big sis?
