They’re famous too! Taylor Swift might be the superstar, but her parents and brother have also made major names for themselves within the Swiftie fandom. Since the beginning of her career, Taylor’s mom, Andrea, and dad, Scott, have showed some major support.

“We’ve always told her that this is not about putting food on our table or making our dreams come true,” Andrea recalled during an interview with Entertainment Weekly from 2008. “There would always be an escape hatch into normal life if she decided this wasn’t something she had to pursue. And of course that’s like saying to her, ‘If you want to stop breathing, that’s cool.'”
