Ever since news first broke about Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn, fans have been obsessed with their relationship. The couple first started dating in May 2017 and have kept the details of their relationship under wraps since then.

During her March 2021 Grammy Awards acceptance speech, Taylor shouted out her beau. “Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine,” she said after being awarded Album of the Year for Folklore. Nearly a month later, it was revealed that Joe also won a Grammy Award for his contributions to the record. Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the actor’s name had been added to the award show’s website listing him as a winner. Swifties know that Joe cowrote songs on the album under the pseudonym William Bowery.

Previously, in November 2020, Taylor gushed about her BF while chatting with Rolling Stone, despite staying private in the past. The songstress explained that her BF “absolutely” understands her lifestyle while talking about the meaning of her song “Peace.”

“I, oftentimes, in my anxieties, can control how I am as a person and how normal I act and rationalize things, but I cannot control if there are 20 photographers outside in the bushes and what they do and if they follow our car and if they interrupt our lives. I can’t control if there’s going to be a fake weird headline about us in the news tomorrow,” she explained. “I think that in knowing [Joe] and being in the relationship I am in now, I have definitely made decisions that have made my life feel more like a real life and less like just a storyline to be commented on in tabloids.”

Throughout their three years together, the couple has been caught packing on the PDA a few times. Not to mention that they’ve been spotted supporting each other’s work numerous times — Taylor has attended her beau’s movie premieres, while Joe was caught singing along to the “Look What You Made Me Do” crooner at a few of her shows. Plus, the blonde beauty has wrote numerous songs about the British actor. And every time we get a glimpse of the super secret relationship, the internet pretty much loses it.
