At this point, most people know that Taylor Swift isn't afraid to write songs about what's going on in her love life. So, it will be interesting to see what her current love, Joe Alwyn, thinks of Reputation album. The actor and the singer have been been tight-lipped about their relationship so far — aside from the lyrics about him in her songs — but according to reports, he is always in his girlfriend's corner when it comes to her music.

According to a source who spoke with People, Alwyn is totally backing Swift's career, which obviously includes her latest musical efforts. The source said, "They [Swift and Alwyn] seem to be on the same page. Joe is getting to know Taylor's parents and everyone likes him. He is very supportive of her work." He gets along with the parents and is supportive of her career? He sounds like a keeper! Even though this isn't a direct comment on the singer's latest album, it stands to reason that if he supports her entire career, then he's in support of her Reputation album.

It's not entirely surprising that the actor hasn't been that outspoken about Swift's latest album. The couple has actually been pretty private ever since it was reported that they were together in May 2017. The relationship was reported by different publications (like People and Us Weekly), but the two never even personally confirmed that they're together whether it's been through the press or through social media channels (which Alwyn isn't especially active on). So, Alwyn staying mum about the album, and really staying quiet on anything Swift-related, is just par for the course.

Of course, the couple could be especially reserved about their personal lives until after the release of Swift's album. According to Us Weekly, the pair is waiting until her album comes out on Nov. 10 to "come out of hiding". It was also reported by the publication that the two are waiting until the Europe Music Awards on Nov. 12 to make their first official appearance together as a couple. Although, Gossip Cop reported that Swift won't be at the awards show at all. Time will tell, although if Swift is going to make an award show appearance, it would probably be in a big way.

It'll be interesting to see if Alwyn does ever directly comment on Reputation, seeing as though fans believe that so many songs were about him before the album even came out. Both of Swift's singles, "Gorgeous" and "Call It What You Want" are believed to be about Alwyn. Some thought there were even a few references to him in her "...Ready For It?" music video, which is totally possible. It's a pretty big deal to have one of the biggest pop stars in the world write an album, a lot of which is about you, so it'd definitely be interesting to know how he feels.

One of the biggest rumors related to the couple involves the two's supposed engagement. Some fans were saying that Swift's single "New Year's Day" would be about the couple's engagement. The theory arose because in one of Swift's Secret Sessions, where she let some fans listen to Reputation in advance, it was said that track 15 (aka "New Year's Day") was a "wedding song." In response to that theory, one fan questioned whether it was the singer and her beau who would be in use of the "wedding song" on New Year's Day. Clearly, now we know that's not true since the album has been released.

Fans will have to stay tuned to the couple's next moves to see if they finally spill anything else about their relationship. And those same Swift/Alwyn shippers will probably also be eagerly await to hear exactly what Alwyn thinks of his love's new album.
