Taylor Swift's dating history has played out in the spotlight, from her 2008 young love with Joe Jonas to her whirlwind 2016 romance with Tom Hiddleston.
However, in her current relationship with 27-year-old actor Joe Alwyn, Swift has diverted attention, photos and questions. Of course, that didn't stop the paparazzi from catching up with the pair on a hike in Malibu, California, on Wednesday.
Taylor Swift, the pop star and very secretive girlfriend of British actor Joe Alwyn, is ready to commit! To England full-time, that is. The Sun's Dan Wootton—the guy who broke the news the two were secretly dating last May—reports that Swift is looking for a North London house to make her home base. Alwyn and his family live in North London's Crouch End; Swift would like to be near that and the countryside near Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, outside of the city. (Soho Farmhouse, by the way, is where Meghan Markle had her swanky bridal shower.)
“Taylor loves the UK and how she can live a relatively normal life without being disturbed," the source said. The Sun previously reported that Swift went undetected in disguises around the city. “Setting down roots is something she’s thought long and hard about. She’s set aside £30 million ($42 million) to find the house of her dreams, which she hopes to one day settle down in with Joe if their relationship continues to grow."
The leading requirement for this house is that it has multiple kitchens. “Two mega kitchens are an absolute requirement as she wants one near her entertaining area to be kept clean," the source continued. This is because Swift loves cooking oh-so much. Her passion for it is so intense, Alwyn reportedly calls her his "feeder," per The Sun.
She's been enjoying more time in the UK owing to her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
And Taylor Swift, 28, took in a quintessential British pastime as she enjoyed a cosy lunch date with Joe, 27, at a gastro pub in North London on Wednesday, where the pair reportedly tucked into traditional Fish and Chips along with two pints of London Pride Beer.
The couple, who have kept their romance low-key since it was revealed in May last year, seemed in good spirits as they hopped into their chauffeur driven car after the meal.
Bless Joe Alwyn for teaching Taylor Swift the value of keeping her personal life private, Us Weekly enthusiastically reports, because her happiness these days is unparalleled! The tabloid got a detailed report on how madly in love Swift is with Alwyn's and her secret(ish) relationship.
“Joe has really showed her a different lifestyle and the value of privacy,” a source told the outlet. “She’s the happiest she’s ever been.”
This shift has drastically improved Swift's life, a source added. “Taylor is so much happier without her personal life in the open. She credits Joe for that and realizes how much better off she is.”
Swift, for one of the first times in the public eye, has not talked about Alwyn in any interviews. She has barely been photographed out with him, though this week they were shot holding hands in Turks and Caicos. “They seemed genuinely happy,” a witness there told Us of their interactions out and about there. “They were always smiling and close to each other, but kept to themselves.”
