Joe Alwyn is romantically linked to his longtime partner named Taylor Swift, with whom he often produces and shares lyrics on various songs, albums and singles. Four years ago, as industry speculation swirled about the couple’s romantic dating, neither of them stepped forward to describe their relationship.
Although no one knows when and where the two met and when they started their relationship, the two were revealed to have become close for the filming of the song Dress in 2017, which was likely their first meeting in public .
With various mix-ups, rumors, and speculations surfacing, the pair had had a relationship that had come and gone — sometimes exploring their favorite destinations together, sometimes posting the pictures of each other’s pets, and other times reference that they were engaged or were even married (only in their references).
At one point, actor Joe released the song’s lyrics and went off the script like “Baby, just say ‘yes'” — which later changed to “Baby, just said ‘yes’.” Swift, however, shut down all the rumors, calling Joe her boyfriend in her statements and stating that the couple is neither engaged nor married.
