Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are both extremely family oriented teens. They're close not only with their own families but also with each others'. Whether they're with her parents in Texas or his family in Canada, JB and Selena continue to prove they're one of young Hollywood's most loving couples, not only to each other but to their families as well. And over the course of their relationship, they've been spotted on a slew of super cute family outings. Hollywood Life has compiled a list of some of them.
Everyone wants to be home for the holidays, and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no exceptions. So on Thanksgiving 2011, they headed to Dallas, Texas to visit Selena's mom and stepdad. They were spotted around town by happy fans as they went about their surprisingly normal holiday routine. They were even seen grocery shopping.
For New Year's 2012, Selena flew her family to New York City where she and the Biebs were both performing albeit at separate venues. He checked into the Four Seasons, while she stayed with her family at the London Hotel. Valentine's Day found the teen lovebirds at the happiest place on earth: Disneyland. Accompanying them were Justin's mom, Pattie Mallette, and his little sister and brother, Jazzy and Jaxon. Unfortunately, that family outing was disrupted by an overly aggressive and disrespectful fan. Hopefully, Jelena's lunch the next day with Jazzy and Jaxon helped to make up for the so-called fan's intrusive rudeness.
Of course, it's not just on holidays that Justin and Selena manage to get together for family outings. Last May, JB visited Arlington, Texas where he joined Selena along with her "mom and step-dad...her cousins and friends" for dinner at Pappasito's Cantina restaurant. Scooter Braun was there, too. He paid the bill.
Last but not least is a Jelena outing that isn't really a date. Nevertheless, it shows what a close, caring, and ultimately family-oriented couple they are. Shortly before Christmas 2011, the Biebs proved himself to be a super supportive boyfriend when he visited Selena's mom in the hospital after her tragic miscarriage. Photos of Justin's devastated expression as he visited Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with Selena on Dec. 19 show just how closely he has bonded with the members of her family.
So there you have it. Do you agree that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may be the most loving, mutually supportive, family-oriented teen couple in the world?
