Selena Gomez: 'My Mom is My Happiness'

Selena Gomez: 'My Mom is My Happiness'

Selena Gomez shares a laugh with mom Mandy as they prepare one of their favorite meals, Shrimp Lettuce Wraps, to celebrate Mother’s Day.

The 16-year-old Wizards leading lady shared with JJJ about her love for her mom. She said, “My mom means my happiness, my love, my best friend and the world to me. She is the reason I smile and the reason I am here.”

Mandy explained the twosome’s love for shrimp lettuce wraps, saying, “This is actually the first meal we cooked in our first house. We had always lived in apartments so, when we finally got settled into our very first home, it was the first thing we made.”

    She is way too pretty. but hey, that’s not a bad thing. Her hair just gave me a flashback of Gabriella in HSM2..awww memories. So is this how she gets so naturally beautiful?? Shrimp wrapped in lettuce?! If so, I’m gonna fill my refrigerator right now with shrimp and lettuce. I’d do anything to get her looks.

    Generally grown as a hardy annual, lettuce is easily cultivated, although it requires relatively low temperatures to prevent it from flowering quickly. It can be plagued with numerous nutrient deficiencies, as well as insect and mammal pests and fungal and bacterial diseases. L. sativa crosses easily within the species and with some other species within the Lactuca genus; although this trait can be a problem to home gardeners who attempt to save seeds, biologists have used it to broaden the gene pool of cultivated lettuce varieties. -”..:
