It has been revealed that Taylor Swift has been engaged with her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn for quite some time now. To avoid the media attention, the couple has gone out of their way to keep the engagement under wrap. Even Taylor’s team members are unaware of this news and only the inner circle of both parties knows about the engagement.
Unlike Taylor’s previous relationship with other Brits including Tom Hiddleston, Harry Styles, and Calvin Harris, in which the singer’s love life was pretty much public, her relationship with Joe Alwyn has mostly been behind the curtains. The couple has only been seen together on red carpets event in the 5 years of their relationship. Over the past 18 months, however, Taylor has been more open about her relationship with Joe.
Taylor even confirmed that Joe was the co-writer of two songs from her Folklore album under the alias of William Bowery and he also helped pen three tracks on its follow-up as well.
Nonetheless, the couple kept their engagement in shadow and only the trusted ones of both parties know about it. Furthermore, it was now reported that they got engaged in the presence of their family members, and both their parents are fond of each other.
A source very close to Joe has said,” Taylor and Joe are incredibly happy and very, very in love.”
“They’ve actually been engaged for a few months but have only told their inner-inner circle — basically immediate family, and trusted, very old friends. Everyone has been sworn to secrecy, too.”
“Taylor has a beautiful ring but she only wears it when she’s at home — ie behind closed doors. Again, only a handful of people know details about the wedding and Taylor hasn’t even told some of her team about the engagement.”
“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.”
