If mother knows best, then Justin Bieber is on the right track.
The “Sorry” singer’s mom, Pattie Mallette, has given the full stamp of approval to her son’s on-and-off again (but currently on) girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
“I don’t know so much about their personal relationship because he doesn’t share a whole lot, but I love her. I support anything (he does), if he loves her I love her, and I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious,” Mallette gushed to People. “I can’t really speak on their relationship, that’s between them.”
Bieber, 23, and Gomez, 25, recently rekindled their relationship, which saw its ups and downs from 2011 to 2015, when they first called it quits.
Mallette has previously expressed her love for Gomez, like in 2012, when she told Ellen DeGeneres, “Seriously, how can you not like her? She’s good for him and they’re great together.”
She even wished Gomez a happy birthday on Twitter in 2016, long after she and Bieber had parted ways.
In recent months, the couple has been spotted at hockey games, riding bikes and going to church.
“Justin was Selena’s first love. He will always have a special place in her heart,” a source told People. “They have learned from past mistakes and are not putting any pressure on each other. Things are much different and more mature.”
