Taylor Swift fans think she sent her ex-boyfriend, Joe Jonas, a baby gift.
Taylor sings about an ex on "Invisible String," which has led to the recent fan theories.
Taylor Swift is a master at leaving Easter eggs in her lyrics. Why would we think that her surprise album, Folklore, would be any different? Her fans think they've cracked a code in her song, "Invisible String." Most of the track is thought to be about how fate brought her and boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, together. (Cute, right?) But, there's also one lyric that kinda sounds like she's hinting that she and one of her exes are now good friends.
She sings, "Cold was the steel of my axe to grind / For the boys who broke my heart / Now I send their babies presents," on the eleventh track. Since Joe Jonas and wife Sophie Turner are expecting a child, this theory makes sense.
taylor swifts still writing lyrics about joe jonas 12 years later makes me feel at home

"Boys who broke my heart/now I send their babies presents" is 100% about Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner and the evolution of that friendship and the only person who can change my mind is @taylorswift13 @taylonation13

Taylor has a history of writing songs about Joe. They dated from July 2008 to October of that year. A heartbroken Taylor revealed that he ended things in a quick phone call, and she has continued to relive her teenage heartbreak on several albums.
Swifties believe that "Forever & Always," "Better Than Revenge," and of course, the soul-crushing ballad, "Last Kiss" are all about Joe. So, it's not a reach to believe that she's still writing songs about him as an adult. In the 2010 track, she sang, "Never imagined we'd end like this / Your name, forever the name on my lips."
Man, taylor swift going from "last kiss" to "now I send their babies presents" about Joe Jonas is what I call growing up

If it turns out that "Invisible String" is about Joe, then Taylor has once again showed us how much she's matured over the years. Either way, she's blessed us with a masterpiece that we will continue to listen to on repeat.
