According to The Sun, Taylor Swift is engaged to boyfriend Joe Alwyn. According to the outlet, the actor proposed months ago, but the couple “only told” their inner circle.
“Basically immediate family, and trusted very old friends. Everyone has been sworn to secrecy, too,” the source said. Taylor Swift, according to the informant, only wears her “beautiful ring” in private.
“Again, only a handful of people know details about the wedding and Taylor hasn’t even told some of her team about the engagement,” the source continued.
“They want their love to stay away from the cameras as much as possible. This is just for them. And if and when they do exchange vows, there most definitely won’t be any Vogue, Rolling Stone or Hello! magazines there. It will be simple and elegant – like them.”
In an interview with WSJ. Magazine in April, Alwyn addressed rumors that he secretly proposed to Swift.
“If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins,” he said at the time.
“I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
Swift and Alwyn’s engagement was first reported by Life & Style in February.
While Swift, 32, and Alwyn, 31, have been notoriously private as a couple since they were first linked in 2017, this isn’t the first time reports of an engagement have surfaced.
Swift herself fueled the rumor mill in January 2020 with what appeared to be a large diamond ring on her left ring finger in her Netflix documentary, “Miss Americana.”
“I’m aware people want to know about that side of things,” Alwyn told Vogue back in 2018. “I think we have been successfully very private and that has now sunk in for people … but I really prefer to talk about work.”
Taylor Swift later brought Alwyn into her work: Under the pseudonym William Bowery, he helped co-write two tracks on her 2020 album “Folklore”, “Exile” and “Betty,” and also contributed to the songs “evermore” and “Champagne Problems” on “Folklore’s” sister album, “Evermore.”
In her acceptance speech at the 2021 Grammy Awards, Swift thanked Alwyn, saying, “Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song that I write,” before continuing, “And I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine.”
