Selena Gomez’s announcement that she underwent a kidney transplant earlier this year concerned fans.

But the 25-year-old looks healthier than ever following the surgery – and we couldn’t be happier for her.

Selena received a kidney transplant in May, after suffering kidney failure due to lupus.

In an amazing act of friendship and kindness, Selena’s actress friend Francia Raisa donated her kidney to the Bad Liar singer.

And just months later, Selena is back to her day job.

The star was spotted looking healthy and happy on the set of Woody Allen’s as yet unnamed new film.

Selena, who first found fame on Wizards of Waverly Place, was papped in New York wearing a short red skirt teamed with a mustard top and a long coat.

The ex-Disney star wore a pair of mirrored sunglasses and rocked a bouncy long bob as she prepared for filming.

And earlier, Selena looked fresh-faced as she arrived on set in jeans and a plain white t-shirt with her hair tied back.

The Fetish singer, who is dating The Weeknd, started filming the untitled Woody Allen project this week, with the cast also including Elle Fanning, Jude Law,, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber.

Selena yesterday announced that her kidney transplant was the reason she hadn’t promoted her new music.

In an Instagram post, she wrote: ‘I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of.

‘So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you.

‘Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis.

‘Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made. For more information regarding Lupus please go to the Lupus Research Alliance website: http://www.lupusresearch.org/ -by grace through faith.’
