However, this isn't the first tie the lovebirds have sparked engagement rumors. Just last month, Alwyn and Swift broke the internet when they embarked on a romantic trip to Cornwall.

As The Sun reported, the "Bad Blood" singer and the British actor flew on a private jet from their Nashville home to St Ives for the romantic getaway, making a stop at London.

The couple spent three nights at a rented house and had the best time bonding in a secluded romantic setting. Per sources, the trip was a "special" one for Taylor as she isn't one to travel to distant places unless something serious is at stake. A friend of the superstar said:

Taylor’s a superstar and obviously very wealthy, so she can travel almost anywhere she wants at any time. But 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.

The insider noted that a long journey to a specific location points to something serious. However, neither Swift nor Alwyn confirmed or denied the news.

A Look At Swift & Alwyn's Relationship Timeline

Although most of Swift and Alwyn's relationship is shrouded in secrecy, fans track the start of their relationship to the 2016 Met Gala. At the time, the "Blank Space" singer was dating Calvin Harris.

However, Swift's song "Dress" hints that the star-studded ceremony was where it all began. "Flashback when you met me / Your buzzcut and my hair bleached, she sang. Indeed Swift rocked a bleached bob to the gala while Alwyn had a clean shave.

Later that year, the lovebirds attended a Kings of Leon concert separately. The singer was in a relationship with Tom Hiddleston, so nothing raised eyebrows. However, in May 2017, rumors began surfacing that the award-winning artist had a British boyfriend.

Alwyn's identity wasn't well-known as he wasn't famous among Swift's numerous American fans despite being an actor, but by June 2017, the paparazzi captured the pair having coffee on a balcony in Nashville.

The relationship largely remained a rumor until December 2017 when the lovebirds packed on a steamy PDA session during Ed Sheeran's set at the iHeartRadio's Jingle Ball.

Come 2018, and the speculations only intensified when Swift and Alwyn shared separate photos of themselves next to the same cactus plant while on vacation. The confirmation arrived in September 2018 when Swift attended the screening of Alwyn's film "The Favourite" and stayed for the after-party.

At the event, Alwyn addressed their relationship for the first time, saying to British Vogue, "I'm aware people want to know about that side of things. I think we have been successfully very private, and that has now sunk in for people…but I really prefer to talk about work."

After numerous public outings and several song lyrics that point to Swift and Alwyn's romance, fans were given a closer glimpse at their love story via the singer's documentary, "Taylor Swift: Miss Americana."

In it, she explained that Alwyn's "wonderful, normal, balanced kind of life" drew her in. In August 2020, Swift released her eighth album, "Folklore," and the "Mary Queen of Scots" star was listed as one of the writers for two songs, "Betty" and "Elixir."

What Do Fans Think Of The Engagement News?

As expected, Swifties are losing their minds over the engagement news on social media. One excited fan wrote, "MY Jaylor engaged ???❤ I am crying ???❤ Tay Tay you deserve the world?❤"

Another user supported the sentiment, writing, "IMO theyve been engaged. Longer than we know also IMO its better to let Taylor run her narrative."

However, not all Swift's fans are convinced the news is true. One netizen noted, "I won't believe it until she announces herself," while another added, "why not leave them alone and let them announce it when they want?"
