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 dissecting every lyric of Swift's seventh album, Lover, trying 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.
While Swift (sadly) didn't appear in any sketches with the episode's host, Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge, she did perform an acoustic version of "Lover" at the piano. During the song, fans thought they spotted Swift looking in her boyfriend's direction as she sang the lyrics "I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all."
"So beautiful!! Bet Joe was there and she was looking at him when she sang “I want ‘em all”!" one fan tweeted.
Here's the exact moment that has fans freaking out—and if she is indeed looking at him, it is very sweet.
Swift also debuted "False God" live for her second song of the night, alongside a saxophonist.
"My new religion is @taylorswift13 singing False God live... expectations MET 🎷 🖤 🎶 #TaylorOnSNL," one tweeted. "EVERYTHING about this performance is INCREDIBLE ❤️❤️❤️❤️," another wrote.
Now if only we could get footage of what went down at that (surely amazing) after-party.
