AceShowbiz - Selena Gomez may have taken Justin Bieber back, but he still has a hard time to convince her family that he's a different person now. Thus, the "Spring Breakers" star has made plans for this holiday in an attempt to repair his relationship with her family.
According to HollywoodLife.com, the 25-year-old actress wants to bring Justin home for the holidays. "Selena is already planning the holidays in her home state of Texas with Justin and her family," a source tells the site.
"She desperately wants him to repair damaged family relationships by showing everyone how much he has grown, changed, and matured," the source adds. "Selena is happy and has a lot to be thankful for as Thanksgiving approaches. She is really hoping that her family will be open and accepting, and not judge Justin when she brings him home again. Selena is excited to prove to her close family how much Justin has changed and become a responsible, loving guy."
Selena and Justin sparked reconciliation rumor after frequently spending time together lately. They had a fun bike ride on Wednesday, November 1 in Los Angeles. Later on the same day, she visited the Los Angeles Kings' arena where Justin played hockey game. They left together, with the former Disney darling sporting the red jersey that Justin initially wore on the rink.
On Saturday, they were spotted twice at the Hillsong Church. The day before, the rumored lovebirds attended a church event at the Microsoft Theatre. After the event, they reportedly went to a private dinner at Morton's Steakhouse in downtown Los Angeles. They arrived at 10 P.M. and stayed until midnight. According to an onlooker, Justin arranged for the private dinner after the restaurant had closed, so they could have the place to themselves.
"He is trying to take things slowly, but it hasn't really worked. He is too excited to spend time with her," a source previously told PEOPLE about the two's relationship status. "He is waiting for Selena to tell him that they are officially back together. He doesn't feel any rush, because no doubt they are already emotionally back together."
The source added, "Justin still needs to win her family over and he realizes it will take some time. But he very much feels he is a different person. He knows what he did wrong in the past and understands that Selena deserves better. He wants to be with her and will do anything to prove he can be a great boyfriend."
