Not only does Selena Gomez have millions of adoring fans, but she also has one very important admirer who thinks the world of the Disney darling: her BF Justin Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette.

On Tuesday, Pattie will appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and the TV host couldn't help but ask Bieber's mom if she adores the sweet-as-pie Selena.

"Seriously, how can you not like her? I mean you've met her," Pattie gushes to Ellen. "She's so sweet."

No argument here! And Ellen chimes in to add that she "loves" Selena and "thinks she's fantastic."

"She's good for him and they're great together," Pattie continues.

"They're a cute couple," Ellen says. "Adorable," adds Pattie. 

All together now: Aww. And while we're hardly surprised Pattie is so quick to gush over the 19-year-old star, it's a good thing for our gal Selena because the Biebs is a total mama's boy.

In an interview with the Today show Tuesday morning, Pattie talks about her struggles with sexual abuse, giving birth to Justin at only 18 years old and ultimately having a tighter-than-ever bond with the Biebs.

As for Justin? He calls his mother his "best friend," and it makes for a seriously sweet moment in the interview when Justin sings a line from "Turn to You," the song he wrote for Pattie and dedicated to her on Mother's Day (honestly, could he be any sweeter?!).

Well, after watching Bieber and his mom, it's safe to say Selena may not be the No. 1 woman in Bieber's life, but with Pattie's stamp of approval, we'd bet the babe is here to stay.

Jelena forever!
