Meet Your New Favorite Member of the Swift Family

Besides having an ever-growing list of famous BFFs, it's not surprising that Taylor Swift is so tight with her family. It makes her all the more awesome. From bringing Austin Swift (her super-stylish brother) as a guest at award shows to bonding with her parents, it's great she's still a family girl and hasn't let fame go to her head. Proving just how close she is with her 'rents, Poppa Swift crashed Taylor Swift's girls' weekend in Catalina Island. They hung out with Lorde, Jaime King, Gracie Gold, and the Haim sisters. So basically a few singers, a girl band, an actress, a figure skater... and Tay's dad. How precious is that?!

Over the weekend, Swift shared a photo with the caption: "Wandering around Catalina with my favorite people to wander around with" If you look closely, you can see her dad, aka Scott Kingsley Swift, in that crowd too. His hat is peeking out in the back. Then there's another pic of him posing with Haim, as the caption reads: "Scott Swift, the newest member of @haimtheband"

Based on the photo evidence, seems like they walked around the area and stopped for some ice cream. Sounds like a pretty sweet trip to me!

In case you were wondering, this isn't the first time Scott Swift joined in on Taylor's fun. Back in 2009, Taylor Swift wrote about her dad on MySpace (yeah, it was that long ago) about how he loves joining her on trips and he's quite a jokester. Swift says,

He's a social butterfly, and loves being on tour. He loves it so much, he thinks it's absolutely hilarious to embarrass me as much as possible... For example, [I'm] walking into the hotel lobby after returning from dinner. It's a quiet, serene, beautiful when … Screaming voice from out of nowhere: 'HEY! THAT'S TAYLOR SWIFT!!' Me: 'Dad. Please stop doing that.'

Typical dad behavior, right? In fact, her Instagram is a treasure trove of Mr. Swift photo bombs. Let's take a trip down memory lane! Here are Scott Swift's best moments:

Thanksgiving Now & Then

Front and center, of course! Not much has changed over the years.

His First Selfie

Such a momentous occasion! Fans got to participate in Scott Swift's first ever selfie.


When 1989 first debuted, Swift surprised her fans by #taylurking, aka lurking around their photos and sharing them. Looks like creeping around runs in the fam!


This video is my favorite! I believe he's pretending to swim in an empty pool.

Walking Down the Street

Strolling through NYC is a family affair. Of course Scott is there.

"Starbucks Lovers"

No Poppa Swift in this photo, but it proves that if you thought the lyrics in "Blank Space" were "Starbucks lovers," you're not alone. Even her own dad mixed it up.

Marching Band

I have no idea where Swifties get these photos, but I'm glad they do. Look at the righthand corner!

Moral of the story? If you thought you were T. Swift's biggest fan, nope. Scott Swift will always be number-one!
