Selena was five-years-old little when her parents decided to divorce. "I wanted to have my mom and my dad together," Selena recalled in an interview with E! Online about that difficult period of her life, "I remember just being angry with my mom. I still feel really bad about that. Having me at 16 had to have been a big responsibility." 

Ricardo Gomez and the singer's mom, Mandy Teefey began a new life. The songstress’ mother married Brian Teefey in 2006 and had a little daughter named Gracie Elliot, 6. Meanwhile, Ricardo, met Sara Gomez and they both share Marcus, 11, and Victoria, 5, who absolutely adores her big sister.
