Taylor Swift Reportedly Only Wears Her Engagement Ring Behind Closed Doors
Is Taylor Swift engaged to boyfriend Joe Alwyn? There have been a lot of developments in recent years, leading fans to believe that they are.
In Taylor Swift's early 2020 Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, the singer gave fans an inside look at her extremely private personal life, including her romantic side. For a brief moment, Swifties rejoiced at not having to decode song lyrics to find out more about their favorite singer.
Once labeled a "serial dater" by critics, Taylor revealed in the documentary that she and her current boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, made the decision to keep their romance out of the public eye. Basically, they don't like to talk about their relationship in interviews, fill their social media pages with PDA pics, or even walk red carpets together.
However, things might be getting a bit more serious in Taylor's love life nowadays. So, are she and Joe engaged? Here's what we know.
Is Taylor Swift engaged? There have been multiple rumors suggesting she is.
While talking about her political stance in Miss Americana, the "Lover" singer raised her left hand, and a massive diamond ring flashed on screen. This immediately led fans to speculate that she and Joe had secretly gotten engaged, but nothing ever emerged confirming that to be a fact.
Though she never says his name in the documentary, for a few brief minutes, Taylor showed clips of her and Joe together. Whether they were taking scenic strolls, driving in the car, or she was serenading him on the guitar, it appears that a hallmark of their relationship is just enjoying each other's company far from public scrutiny.
In 2022, it appears as though the rumors surrounding Taylor and Joe's engagement have heated up once again. Once it was proven that the duo weren't engaged at the time of Miss Americana's release, fans continued to speculate about when the couple — who are said to have begun dating in 2016 — might finally take the next step in their relationship. Well, new rumors might give fans some clarity.
Some reports claim the pair are already engaged.
In February 2022, Life & Style reported that multiple sources confirmed the couple is officially engaged, though there's currently no public comment from either Taylor or Joe about their potential commitment. While rumors have been swirling for a long time, they escalated after Taylor was spotted leaving her studio, her left hand subtly tucked inside her pocket. Many were convinced that she was hiding the engagement ring they're sure she's already received from Joe.
According to The Sun, the singer jetted from Nashville to Cornwall, Great Britain, in order to meet up with Joe at the beginning of the year so that they could fly out to the tropical paradise of St. Ives together. Per the outlet, Taylor put a lot of her personal obligations on hold to go on this three-day "particularly special" trip with Joe, according to a source.
Of course, "particularly special" is a vague way of describing a trip, but flying roughly 4,000 miles for just three days of vacationing must mean that heading to St. Ives had some particular importance to the couple.
The insider for The Sun added, "To go that far just for a few days clearly meant a lot to them. It feels like things are getting more serious and people think an engagement could be on the cards. That could explain such a long journey to a specific place."
Taylor and Joe reportedly are going to great lengths to not officially confirm their engagement.
In late June, The Sun reported that Taylor and Joe had been engaged for a few months — and a source offered insight into how they're keeping it officially under wraps.
"Taylor and Joe are incredibly happy, and very, very in love," the source told the publication. "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 anonymous source added: "Taylor has a beautiful ring but she only wears it when she’s at home — ie 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."
Given how much closer the duo have reportedly grown during the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the way Taylor spoke about Joe in Miss Americana, the two lovebirds could very well be finally gearing up to officially become Mr. and Mrs.
