Just a few weeks ago, news broke that the pop singer is dating British actor Joe Alwyn and, unlike her very public whirlwind relationship with Tom Hiddleston, there's been very little documentation of the duo in the media so far.
Over the weekend, though, the internet was gifted with a not-so-official glimpse of the couple.
The 1989 singer was photographed with her new man in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, and I must say they look like quite a cute pair sipping coffee on a balcony.
Swift, in a casual pink dress, and Alwyn, in jeans and a t-shirt, look super comfortable with each other. At one point, Swift appears to be pointing out something to Alwyn (did she spot the paparazzi perhaps?).
A source confirmed to E! News the couple are, in fact, "official." Another source said,
This isn't a new couple alert or a secret relationship. The only people this has been a secret to is the media because all of us -- Taylor and Joe's closest friends and their families -- were aware they have been together for several months and have known each other for a long time.
They've apparently been dating for several months but have wanted to keep everything "insanely private."
According to sources, members of Swift's squad, including Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid, have met her new boyfriend.
Alwyn, 26, is known for his roles in Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and The Sense of an Ending, and has an upcoming movie with Emma Stone, The Favourite, which comes out in 2018.
Meanwhile, Swift has flown very much under the radar this past year.
She reportedly rented a house in Alwyn's hometown of London and went as far as wearing disguises to keep the relationship a secret over the past few months.
It's tough to blame either of them for wanting to stay far away from the media frenzy. A source told People,
Joe's a very normal, down-to-earth guy. He's private and low-key.
Swift, at least when she's on tour or promoting new music (which, by the way, fans are desperate for right about now), tends to lead a not-so-low-key lifestyle.
Perhaps, though, this new relationship is a turning point for the star.
