Taylor Swift's boyfriend is a Grammy winner now, too. Joe Alwyn, the 30-year-old actor and Swift's boyfriend of four years, received the award for being part of the team to produce his girlfriend's eighth studio album, Folklore (2020).

Alwyn was listed on the album as William Bowery and co-wrote "Exile" and "Betty"; he also co-produced "Exile," "Betty," "My Tears Ricochet," "August," "This Is Me Trying," and "Illicit Affairs."

Alwyn's name recently showed up as a Grammy recipient on the Recording Academy's site, which lists that he won for Folklore.

"Joe is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine," Swfit said of her boyfriend in her acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards on March 14.

"Taylor's friends are all talking about a proposal and how she really wants to marry Joe," an Us Weekly source shared in 2019. "He's her dream guy." A People source expressed a similar sentiment about the couple: "Taylor really got lucky to meet Joe, and she is the first one to say it. Joe really is one of a kind."

In a conversation with Paul McCartney for Rolling Stone last November, Swift revealed that Alwyn helped inspire her song "Peace" on Folklore.

She told the music legend that the song "is actually more rooted in my personal life. I know you have done a really excellent job of this in your personal life: carving out a human life within a public life, and how scary that can be when you do fall in love and you meet someone, especially if you’ve met someone who has a very grounded, normal way of living. I, oftentimes, in my anxieties, can control how I am as a person and how normal I act and rationalize things, but I cannot control if there are 20 photographers outside in the bushes and what they do and if they follow our car and if they interrupt our lives. I can’t control if there’s going to be a fake weird headline about us in the news tomorrow."
