Reigning Queen of Pop Taylor Swift has a new man in her life!
The 27-year-old “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” singer just proved that she’s not only a master hit-maker but also a master sleuth. According to The Sun, the star has been secretly dating British actor Joe Alwyn, 26, for months. Say what?! So, the same star who was photographed traveling the world with ex-beau Tom Hiddleston (RIP Hiddleswift) managed to keep a long term relationship a secret from the press? Color us impressed.
“Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship,” a source close to the couple explained. “But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet.”
Well, the secret’s out now — scroll down to learn more about the lucky guy.

Last year, The Hollywood Reporter dubbed Joe “Hollywood’s Next Big Thing.” He rose to fame after starring in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk alongside Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin. It was recently announced that he’s working on an upcoming project — The Favourite — with Academy Award-winning La La Land actress Emma Stone.

Acting isn’t his only claim to fame. The Brit also did a photoshoot with Gigi Hadid (aka T-Swift’s BFF) for Vogue.
“I wasn’t one of those kids who get up on the table and dance at a young age,” Joe admitted at the time of the photoshoot. “But I always wanted to be an actor. I just never told anybody — I kept it a secret.”

Aside from the fact that he’s dating one of the most famous women in the world, Joe keeps his private life exactly that, private. And lucky for him, this go-around Taylor was completely on board with that.
“She’s been walking around with Joe in London using disguises, like scarves and hats, to keep her identity under wraps,” the source continued. “Nobody has a clue they’ve been walking past a music superstar — not even her new neighbors… After her 1989 tour and all the attention Taylor received, she learned she had to be more protective of her personal life and she and Joe decided early on to keep their private life private.”
