Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have been very private about their five-year relationship, but an insider is now offering some welcome info about their quiet romance.

The Folklore artist, 32, and her 31-year-old British beau “love dividing their time between England and Nashville,” the source told Us Weekly exclusively. “That’s the way they both like it.”

It was also revealed that the two are “wildly happy together and excited about their future together” and “have the best of all worlds.”

They Started Dating In 2017

Swift and Alwyn’s relationship went public in May 2017, but they have managed to keep it low-profile for years. “Once Taylor and Joe started dating, it became apparent to both of them that they were happiest doing their own thing in a low-key way,” the insider explained.

In October 2017, another source told Us Weekly that the relationship was “very normal, and no one really knows about it right now. They just work out, watch movies together and invite friends over. Taylor loves to cook and bake for him. They are still taking it slow.”

Early Months

According to yet another insider, who talked to Us in September 2017, the “Love Story” hitmaker’s M.O. is “to be seen with a new guy first, have her new single drop and then announce her new album. But this time, she’s kept the guy private. And that’s pretty interesting. She really likes Joe.”

Her song “Gorgeous,” which was released that year, was reportedly inspired by Alwyn. “Ocean blue eyes, looking in mine / I feel like I might sink and drown and die,” the lyrics say.

'We Were Just Happy'

Swift has opted not to speak publicly about her relationship with the Mary Queen of Scots actor all these years, but she dropped some clues about the romance in her 2020 documentary, Miss Americana.

“I was falling in love with someone who had a wonderfully normal, balanced life,” she said. “We decided together we wanted our relationship to be private. I was happy. But I wasn’t happy in the way I was trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. We were just happy.”

'Future And Marriage'

The relationship has reportedly gotten so serious that Swift and Alwyn have been talking about “their future and marriage,” according to another insider who spoke with Us in 2020. However, they “don’t have a set deadline in place, but they’re very much in love.”
