2019 could prove to be Taylor Swift‘s biggest year yet. She’s dropping hints about a new album (her seventh) and hitting Oscar parties in fabulous dresses. She’s writing thoughtful essays about turning 30 (this December) and outgrowing her infamous squad. And now serious rumors are swirling that her boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, is about to propose.
Us Weekly reports that her friends are even placing bets on when he’ll pop the question. “Taylor’s friends are all talking about a proposal and how she really wants to marry Joe,” their source says. “He’s her dream guy.”
Compared to some of her other relationships, Swift and Alwyn have kept things pretty private. Sure, they’ve gone out to support each other’s projects and been photographed on the occasional night out, but mostly they’ve played it super low-key.
“Taylor really believes Joe is the one for her,” another source told Us Weekly. “She wants to get engaged to him. She just doesn’t feel as though she has to impress anyone at this point.” The couple is apparently “very low-key and normal” and enjoy things like watching movies together and having friends over.
“Joe feels privileged that he gets to be with Taylor,” this source also says. “And he is happy being out of the spotlight.”
This relationship is a different course for Swift, whose past romances with Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tom Hiddleston became tabloid fodder—and, ultimately, song lyrics. And while this engagement is still a rumor, I already have so many questions. Will the wedding be in Nashville, New York City, or L.A.? Or perhaps a surprise European destination, seeing that Alwyn is a Brit? Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ kids will obviously play a part, right? Will Karlie Kloss be at her bachelorette party (because there’s no way she’s not having one)? Will Selena Gomez be the maid of honor?
Only time will tell.
