Has Taylor Swift's love story found its happy ending?
Rumors have been swirling for years that Joe Alwyn, 31, had popped the question to the 32-year-old superstar, though the private pair have never commented on the constant speculation. However, a friend of the actor's is now claiming the buzz is true!
"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," the friend told The Sun. "Taylor has a beautiful ring but she only wears it when she’s at home — i.e. 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," continued the confidante, noting that whenever they do get hitched, you won't see any photos in a glossy magazine spread.
"It will be simple and elegant — like them," they dished of the nuptials. "Taylor and Joe are incredibly happy, and very, very in love."
It doesn't come as a surprise to fans that the whole ordeal is being kept under wraps, as the lovebirds have been super low-key about their romance since hitting it off five years ago.
When the Wall Street Journal asked the British star about engagement buzz just a few months ago, he gave his usual vague answer. "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 replied. "I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say."
