Taylor Swift and boyfriend Joe Alwyn are said to be ‘officially engaged’.
According to Life & Style, multiple sources confirmed Taylor and Joe are engaged, but they’re yet to announce the news themselves in a statement.
Taylor and Joe – who met in 2016 – have successfully kept their relationship out of the public eye for most of their relationship.
The ‘All Too Well’ singer said to British Vogue in 2018: “I’m aware people want to know about that side of things. I think we have been successfully very private, and that has now sunk in for people … but I really prefer to talk about work.”
Instead, Taylor’s opened up on their romance through her music, with much of her album ‘Reputation’ thought to be about her boyfriend.
She did give her beau a rare shoutout at the 2021 Grammy Awards, after he helped pen some of her quarantine album ‘Folklore’, which went on to win Album of the Year.
She gushed: “Joe, who is the first person that I sing every single song that I write,” before adding that she had “so much fun writing songs in quarantine” with him.
Joe wrote lyrics on songs including ‘Betty’, ‘Exile’ and ‘Champagne Problems’ under the pseudonym William Bowery on the award-winning album.
In her Disney+ documentary The Long Pond Studio Sessions Tay shared that the London-born actor is a natural on the piano, saying he plays ‘beautifully.’
“I was like, ‘Hey, this could be really weird and we could hate this, [but] because we’re in quarantine and there’s nothing else going on, could we just try to write this song together?'”
She also credited him for helping her songs gain a masculine perspective after years of writing from her own experiences.
