Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s relationship has been very much away from the public eye since the beginning of 2019, but that does not mean they are going through a rough patch. In fact, certain clues point to the possibility of them being secretly engaged.

Swift has been pretty much enjoying the limelight of late. On Friday, she released her new single “Me!” and was quick to topple Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” record on YouTube. Over the last two weeks, she attended the Time 100 Gala with her celebrity friends, painted the town red to celebrate Gigi Hadid’s birthday and spent some big moments with her brother Austin Swift and BFF Abigail Anderson Lucier.

Interestingly, she was never with Alwyn in any of those public outings. Could she be keeping their relationship away from the limelight to keep their engagement under tight wraps? Possible. Here are the signs that Swift and Alwyn might actually be engaged.

Alwyn once admitted that he wanted to propose to Swift

Back in December, Alwyn said in an interview that he was definitely serious about Swift and that he already had plans to pop the question to her soon. He said he wanted to make sure his proposal would be an unforgettable and extremely special one for his ladylove.

Swift just released her new single on Friday, and eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot the ring that she’s wearing in her music video. The singer also dropped an important clue on Twitter upon the video’s release, as if subtly announcing her engagement to Alwyn. “Oh and there’s a secret in the video I’ve been keeping for months — let’s see who can guess it,” she wrote.

Their friends are already talking about it

Swift and Alwyn may have been mum about the status of their relationship, but their friends are there to speak on their behalf. A source close to the couple recently revealed that they’re already placing bets on when exactly Swift and Alwyn are getting married, suggesting that they’re already engaged. “Taylor’s friends are all talking about the proposal and how she really wants to marry Joe,” the source said.

Swift has been vocal about wanting to keep her personal life as privately as possible

Since her series of failed relationships, Swift has been very vocal about her plan to not make her personal life an open book. And while fans are still in the dark as to where they are in their relationship, a source has revealed that the two had just moved into London and are now living a private life together.

They recently went on a trip with their families

Especially for A-list couples like Swift and Alwyn, going on public trips with their families is not a common thing unless it’s for something big — but they just did. Last December, the two flew to Ireland with their families to spend Christmas together in a private castle they rented for a special celebration.

After the holidays, Alwyn posted a snap of him and Swift at the grounds of the castle. While the couple did not reveal why their “Christmas celebration” had to be that big, there have been speculations that the proposal happened around that time, especially since a beautiful setting with their families around makes for the perfect engagement.
