When photos of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston getting super cozy on a beach in Rhode Island emerged on June 15, everyone freaked out because, if we’re honest, no one expected to see these two together.
But despite what many may think, Hiddleston isn’t just a distraction from Swift’s recent breakup with Calvin Harris.
It’s obviously too early to tell if Hiddleston and Swift will become an official couple — although they’ve already been coined “Hiddleswift” — but apparently Swift is pretty serious about the actor.
“Taylor would love for her mom to meet Tom,” an insider told Hollywood Life, adding, “She’s eager to introduce them to each other. Taylor and her mom are super close, so it’s just a matter of time that the three of them will get to spend time together. If Taylor and Tom weren’t serious, she wouldn’t waste her mom’s time.”
According to the publication, an insider told them over the weekend that Swift is really into Hiddleston because he’s a genuinely nice guy who treats her with a lot of respect.
“Taylor is smitten with Tom because he treats her like a real lady,” the insider reportedly told Hollywood Life. “She loves being treated like a princess, who doesn’t, but he goes out of his way to be a gentleman to her.”
And Swift is reportedly very happy right now.
The insider added, “He’s swept her off her feet, and she’s loving every minute right now.”
Some people will be quick to judge this relationship, thinking that Swift forgot about Harris too quickly, or will be raising their eyebrows at the rumors that the photo was staged, but we’d just like to remind you that Swift is a single 26-year-old woman who can date who she wants, when she wants. In fact, we’re happy for her that she’s so open to love.
