Did Selena Gomez’s Wizards of Waverly Place mother just out Selena and Justin Bieber as—gasp!—a couple? It certainly sounds like it.

Waverly Place actress Maria Canals-Barerra seems to have ended the speculation about the “Baby” singer and the Disney starlet, dishing to E! Online about the couple’s “budding romance.”

Characterizing Bieber as “very sweet,” Canals-Barerra went on at length about Bieber and Gomez’s relationship, noting,

“I’ve met him a few times. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be for two superstars like that to actually have a budding romance, but I wish them the very best…From what I have seen so far he’s a nice young man.”

So why, despite the obstacles that SelGo and the Biebs face, does their relationship work? Canals-Barerra has an answer for that, too:

“They probably have a lot in common because they come from a regular life and were discovered young to have special talent and passion for singing and acting. And they became superstars at a very young age, both of them. And I think they have the goods. Some people are kind of like pushed into this business. I don’t think they were pushed in the business. They were genuinely discovered based on real talent.”

Well, it’s often said that the the most solid relationships are built on common interests and experiences.

What say you, readers; is it safe to put Bieber and Gomez in the “they are” column, based on Canals-Barerra’s revelations? And, perhaps more importantly, what should their celebu-couple name be? Have at it in the comments section!
