There are various reports claiming Taylor Swift ‘secretly’ got engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Sources claim that the engagement ceremony was kept close-knit, with only close friends and family. Taylor and Alwyn started dating each other in 2016, though there have been few public talks about the relationship.
In April of 2022, Alwyn was asked about the discreet nature of his relationship with Taylor, to which he replied
“It’s not really [because I] want to be guarded and private, it’s more a response to something else. We live in a culture that is so increasingly intrusive… the more you give—and frankly, even if you don’t give it—something will be taken.”
Commenting on rumors about the alleged engagement with Swift, Alwyn reported told The Wall Street Journal:
“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. I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
Reports in the media suggest the ‘beautiful rings’ were exchanged privately and that Taylor hasn’t even told her team about the said ceremony. They want to keep the love affair away from the cameras as much as possible. Various sources claim that it is almost certain that if and when they exchange vows, there won’t be any Vogue, Rolling Stone, or Hello! magazine to cover. So the couple wants o keep it a simple and elegant affair.
Who is Joseph Alwyn, Taylor’s rumored Fiance?
Joseph Matthew Alwyn(born 21 February 1991) is a British actor. He is also known by his alias name William Bowery. He has worked in movies like ‘Long Halftime Walk,’ ‘The Favourites’, ‘Boy Erased’, ‘And Mary Queen of Scots.’ Joseph is the son of renowned documentary filmmaker Richard Alwyn and Psychotherapist mother, Elizabeth Alwyn. He graduated from the City of London School and went on to join the National Youth Theatre at the young age of 16. He has a BA degree in literature and drama from the University of Bristol.
Alwyn dislikes the media’s invasion of privacy. This is why little is known about his personal life, including the relationship with Taylor, which first came into the limelight in 2016. Swift is more open about her romantic life than Alwyn, and we have all heard her.
Alwyn has won various awards for his work, including the BMI London Awards in 2021, Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in 2019, Satellite Awards in 2019, and Grammy Awards in 2021 for Folklore.
