If you've followed Selena Gomez and The Weeknd's relationship from day one, you know that the couple aren't fans of talking about their romance in public. In recent months, they've let their social media accounts do most of the talking, with selfies from Coachella and portrait sessions from date nights.
They've also shared moments on Instagram stories, most recently in June when Selena shared an important cheesecake update en route to "my boyfriend's concert."

In a recent Q&A, Selena brought up this boyfriend again, but not before giving a shout out to his country and fellow Canadian Petra Collins, a photographer and artist who's been in Selena's circle for years.
Responding to a fan's question about her trip to Toronto, Selena said, "Love my Canadians… It was amazing. One of my good friends Petra Collins is from Toronto, I went to see her exhibit. It was absolutely stunning and beautiful. She is so cool and one of my favourite people on the face of the planet." She also offered this: "And my boyfriend's from there. He's really cute."
That last thought took all of 2 seconds. Two. Seconds. And yet here we all are, fawning over Selena talking about her boyfriend's looks.

Selena last talked about The Weeknd in June during an interview with Sirius XM. She was less explicit at the time, dodging a question about BFF Taylor Swift's new boyfriend by offering a thought about her own relationship instead. "I love being supportive. Like, I love just being there and just kind of having somebody's back. It feels good, I haven't had that feeling in a while."
