Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have sparked engagement rumours since January when, according to a source, the pair took a three-day trip to Cornwall, England where he popped the question. Chatter on the contested topic went quiet when we didn’t receive a confirmation from the couple nor a glimpse of the ring.

You’ve got to take any online gossip with a grain of salt (remember when everyone thought The Weeknd and Angelina Jolie were dating?!), but Swift and Alwyn are notoriously private so would they tell us even if we had evidence?

According to a new report from The Suna source has confirmed that they are indeed engaged and that only their “inner circle” know. Swift also only wears her “beautiful ring” in private. “Basically immediate family, and trusted, very old friends,” the insider told the publication. “Everyone has been sworn to secrecy, too.”

“Again, only a handful of people know details about the wedding and Taylor hasn’t even told some of her team about the engagement,” the source added.

“They want their love to stay away from the cameras as much as possible. This is just for them. And if and when they do exchange vows, there most definitely won’t be any Vogue, Rolling Stone or Hello! magazines there. It will be simple and elegant – like them.”

Well, there’s your answer!

It’s of course not the first time the couple were rumoured to be engaged. Speaking with WSJ Magazinethe actor responded to the speculation saying, “If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins,” he said. “I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”

Don’t say we didn’t call it (because we totally did).
