It’s a love story, baby, just say yes.
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are reportedly engaged after five years together, sources told Life & Style on Thursday.
Rumors of an engagement for Swift, 32, and the “Conversations with Friends” star, 30, started circling last month when the pair traveled to Cornwall, in Alwyn’s native England, for what the outlet says was a romantic three-day trip.
While Swift has written many a song supposedly about Alwyn, the pair have largely kept mum about their relationship since it began in the latter half of 2016.
Last week, while promoting his new series, in which Alwyn’s character is in an open relationship, he said, “People can do whatever they want that makes them happy. I’m obviously happy in a monogamous relationship,” according to Deadline.
The “Delicate” singer also gave curious fans a bit more of a peek behind that curtain early last year when one of her two 2020 albums, “Folklore,” won the Grammy for album of the year.“Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine,” Swift said in her acceptance speech.
News that the lovers would trade in “Paper Rings” for real ones came in the hours after Jake Gyllenhaal broke his nearly decade-long silence about Swift’s beloved breakup track, “All Too Well,” and the 10-minute incarnation released in November as part of the rerelease of her 2012 album, “Red.”
The two had a brief relationship in 2010, and though Swift has never confirmed that Gyllenhaalinspired the song, she’s never denied fans’ long-held suspicions.
Gyllenhaal, who the internet has vilified in the wake of the rerelease, told Esquire that while the song “has nothing to do with me” and “is her expression” as an artist, he believes “it’s important when supporters get unruly that we feel a responsibility to have them be civil and not allow for cyberbullying in one’s name.
“Can we be empowered and empower others while simultaneously putting empathy and civility into the dominant conversation?” he continued.
Reps for Swift did not immediately respond to the Daily News’ request for comment.
