Selena Gomez has been an inspiration for every girl who has limited or no resources and aspires to become something one day. As an influencer, Selena understands her responsibilities and continues to deliver optimism and motivation through her actions and songs.
Being an inspiration for other girls is one thing but being an inspiration for your own sisters is completely another. The responsibilities that come with being an elder sister are what Selena has always wanted. Now, she is an elder sister to two little sisters who are absolutely adorable!
Selena Gomez Sister
Selena has two super cute siblings that look up to her. Her parents are divorced and are happily married to different people which is why Selena has a super large family with one mother, one stepmother, a father, a step-father and four grandparents.
Selena’s mother, Amanda Teefey, is currently married to Brian Teefey. Gracie Elliot Teefey is the daughter of Amanda and Brian Teefey who is the most beloved sister to Selena. Selena’s dad, Ricardo Gomez and his wife, Sara Gomez have a cute little daughter, Victoria Gomez.
Selena Gomez is an elder sister to two sisters and a brother, Marcus. Marcus is the son of Sara Gomez and her ex-husband. Selena would have one more little sister to adore had her mother, Mandy, didn’t suffer through a nasty miscarriage in December 2011.
Selena Gomez became an elder sister to Gracie Teefey in June 2014. A year later, Selena got her second sister in the same month. Ever since then, Selena has taken up the role of an elder sister graciously.

When Selena was younger, she used to blame Mandy for her incomplete family. Amanda was just 16 when Selena was born and Rick wasn’t very old either. Both of Selena’s parents were young and had to complete their education and build a career along with raising her.

Despite the fallout between her parents, Selena seems to share a sweet bond with both of them. She is constantly seen with her mother and stepfather, Brian.

Selena claimed that she wanted a more professional team which was seen as a very controversial statement since Amanda was the reason Selena established her roots in competitive Hollywood. Despite Selena’s harsh statement, Amanda and Brian took it positively and wished the young star a better career. Amanda said that she wasn’t planning to manage Selena forever and that she was glad that her daughter had taken such a bold decision all on her own.
Though Rick didn’t raise Selena, he claims that he was an active part of her life. In an interview, Selena claimed that Rick used to take her to basketball matches when she was 7. This statement of hers turned satirical and controversial when the actress claimed that her father used to spend more time with the waitresses who dropped over to meet her.
Just like Amanda and Brian, Rick took it lightly and didn’t drag the topic. Now, both of them share a bitter-sweet bond.
