Taylor Swift and British actor Joe Alwyn, the couple who have been secretly dating until last year, are somewhat-secretly getting more serious, according to a new report from The Sun. The 28-year-old has reportedly been crashing at her boyfriend’s north London, Crouch End pad so often that his friends have begun joking that she’s practically living there.
While the couple is not really ready to start sharing a lease, this is still a welcome update given how little the pair share about their romance.
As the source explained, "Taylor has been spending a lot of time at Joe’s house and has been enjoying going out with his pals to their favorite local haunts. She always tries to keep a low profile but has been having a lot of fun with the group. And some have even been joking that it’s as if she’s moved in with him, as Taylor doesn’t have her own place to live in when she’s staying in the UK."
But does that mean that the couple has taken their relationship to the next level? “She and Joe haven’t quite got to that stage though,” the insider added.
The rumors of their relationship first surfaced in May 2017, although they’d allegedly been together for a while by then. The pair were first spotted publicly in December as they headed out and about around New York before the Jingle Bell Ball.
Even now, most of what we know about their romance comes from Taylor’s Reputation album lyrics. For instance, her song ‘Dress’ has a few lines that go: ‘Flashback when you met me /Your buzzcut and my hair bleached.’ Supposedly she is making reference to their hairstyles at the time.
People reported in August last year that Swift was glad to be keeping her relationship private. "Her decision to keep her relationship with Joe quiet is making her happy," a source told the publication then. "They have been getting to know each other slowly without any pressure.”
There’s a possibility that she and Alwyn could make their red carpet couple debut at the New York City Met Gala on May 7, though considering her first show is in Glendale, Arizona, which is a nearly six-hour flight away, it’s not quite likely.
