The heart wants what it wants – and on Selena Gomez’s 29th birthday, she wanted her best friends by her side.
On her special day on July 22, the “Who Says” singer was surrounded by loved ones during an intimate backyard celebration. “Selena threw a poolside barbecue party at her home today with her closest girlfriends and several family members,” a source told E! News. “It was very low-key, but she was happy to get everyone together to celebrate her 29th birthday.”
At the party, “everyone had fun jumping in the pool and going down the huge water slide she rented,” the insider continued. There were balloons, pool toys and pink and white decor with “29,” “Selena So Fine” and “HBD Selena” written all over it. And as her friends sang birthday greetings to her before they started eating the cake, the insider notes that “there was a huge smile on her face.”
Later, everyone raised their glasses – mostly filled with margaritas and rosé – for a celebratory toast to Gomez. The insider adds: “She kept telling her friends how happy and grateful she was for them, and was very grateful.”
In a photo posted to Instagram, the Disney alum posed for selfies at the party with friends Paige Reed and Theresa Marie Mingus. “Thank you for all the birthday love,” she later wrote. “You guys are the best!”
Celebrating another year around the sun, Gomez is looking forward to the new chapter. “Selena has been in great spirits lately and says she’s very excited for her new year,” a source told E! News. “She’s working on music and will be filming more.”
Gomez’s next in line is the Hulu series “Only Murders in the Building,” which is scheduled to debut on the streaming platform on August 31.
