Taylor Swift has been quietly dating actor Joe Alwyn for months now and well, no one really knows the true timeline of this love story because it's one the songstress has kept close to her heart. But if you've listened to her latest album Reputation, it's easy to hear she's a woman in love now, the happiest she's ever been and Joe has for sure played a role in that. In fact, after months of loving each other in secret, it seems like Taylor doesn't care who knows she's only got eyes for Joe. Could this be a sign she's ready to be more public?
So here's the evidence: Joe is from London so naturally, he was on hand for Taylor's performance at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball which took place in London's famous O2 Arena. He was even spotted in the crowd taking videos of the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer as she slayed the stage. During her longtime BFF Ed Sheeran's set though, Tay was watching from the side of the stage along with Joe and singer/rapper Stefflon Don. Stefflon was posting videos on her Instagram story and in one video, she and Taylor are singing along to "Thinking Out Loud," with Joe's arm wrapped around his GF. And yes, he appears to be wearing a Reputation hat. Take a look:
Seriously, how happy does Taylor look?! Joe might be a tad bit camera shy, but his arm didn't lose grip from her shoulder in the slightest. BRB, crying. While we don't know too much about their relationship, it's suspected they pair met at the 2016 Met Gala, based on the songstress' lyrics in her song "Dress" that says, "Flashback when you met me/Your buzzcut and my hair bleached/ Even in my worst times, you could see the best of me." And at that party, you guessed it, Joe's hair was buzzed and Taylor's was bleached blonde.
Plus, in her song "Call It What You Want" she makes another reference to how special their romance is when she sings, "I want to wear his initial/On a chain round my neck, chain round my neck/Not because he owns me/But 'cause he really knows me." And if you've kept a close eye on photos and videos she's shared from the recording process of this latest album, on the few pics she posts on social media, and if you own a copy of one of her Reputation magazines that features her personal photos, she's often wearing a silver Tiffany & Co "J" necklace. Here it is in her selfie with her cat Olivia:
Take a look at the :23 second mark to see her zoom in on the pendant:
So yes, it appears Taylor is fully ready to let everyone know she has the greatest guy ever and she's not shy about it anymore. Precious.
