Selena Gomez, as famous as she is—140.7 million followers on the ‘gram alone—still makes time to stay close to her best friends from her pre-fame days. In July, Gomez spent her 26th birthday eating pasta on a yacht with her squad (actual goals)—and when it came time for another squad member to hit the big 2-6, she cleared her schedule for those celebrations, too, making time for a little vacay to hang out with them.
On Saturday, Gomez ‘grammed some photos of her friend’s birthday weekend, which kicked off Friday night—and it looked pretty epic. Pasta made a repeat appearance, with pizza and ice cream hijinks also surfacing.
“My best friend turned 26. Part one,” she captioned the first gallery.
Gomez’s friend Courtney Barry also posted about the evening: “chill family dinner turned wild (I cannot believe we convinced @raquellestevens to get a spontaneous tattoo)”
There was a pizza shot from her too:
And it was followed by this cute shot of her and Gomez showing off their new ink, which happens to be a number four: “we finally did it! my number one and my sister forever @selenagomez ❤️”
Gomez also posted it to her ‘gram with a heartfelt caption: “And lastly, my actual #1 @courtneyjbarry you are an incredible woman. The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are moved by the littlest stories to the most heartbreaking ones, you will give someone your perfume if they say you smell nice, you are freaking hilarious and always stand firm in your faith, a loving sister, an amazing friend and a beautiful daughter. You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby! #1”
As for what that “4” means? “Best friend turned 26. Part 2. #4 because these women have stayed by my side for 7 years (@ashley_cook 12 years) 4, because you are my 4 for the rest of my life. I love you ladies. You all inspire me to be better, stronger, closer to god and we have lived the most INSANE story together already. Can’t wait for 50 more!! Ps @raquellestevens had an actual panic attack 🙄 it’s a dot! 🤦🏽♀️”
Seriously, this squad knows how to have fun, and have each other’s back, and now they have the tattoos to prove it.
