For the past three years or so, Taylor Swift has kept her relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn pretty darn private. The two were reportedly first introduced at the Met Gala in 2016 (though that is still unconfirmed) and details about their coupledom have been more rare than those of Swift’s past relationships with celebs like Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tom Hiddleston.
So fans have turned to Swift’s seventh album, Lover, dissecting every lyric, to try to learn more details about the actor. In fact, many think the lyrics on the record are basically a timeline of their love affair.
But even as we’ve gotten to “know” them a bit better as a couple, they rarely attend public events together. Until last night, that is, when Alwyn was on hand to support his girlfriend as she performed two songs on Saturday Night Live. They were also seen entering the show’s famed after-party together, hand-in-hand.
