Reigning Queen of Pop Taylor Swift's new beau is quite the renaissance man! The 27-year-old "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" singer has spent the last few months hiding her relationship with Joe Alwyn, but now she's putting it front and center in new songs "Ready For It?" "Gorgeous," and "Call it What You Want." And guess what? Her man is stepping into the spotlight too!
The hunky Brit is a working actor, but on Nov. 3 he became a bonafide heartthrob when he debuted as a Prada model! His work with the “Ascension” collection for spring 2018 will be his first major fashion campaign, and he looks incredibly suave (albeit young) in the slick photos.
It makes sense that Joe and Tay are emerging around the same time, because they've been in hiding for so long. Life & Style learned that the pop star had been jetting off to London to visit her new boyfriend and using disguises in an effort to keep their brand new relationship under wraps. "Taylor and Joe use disguises when they see each other," an insider admitted. "And when she takes trips to London to see him, she wears glasses and hats. She even dyed her hair brown."
According to The Sun, the star has been secretly dating the British actor, 26, for months. Say what?! So, the same star who was photographed traveling the world with ex-beau Tom Hiddleston (RIP Hiddleswift) managed to keep a long term relationship a secret from the press? Color us impressed.
"Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship," a source close to the couple explained. "But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet." Well, the secret's out now — and Joe is determined to stay with Taylor despite the massive press their relationship will receive.
"As usual, Taylor thinks Joe is the one. And Joe has fallen hard," the insider continued. "She keeps saying he's the most romantic guy she's ever met. She's afraid all the attention will scare him off, but he's promised her it won't." He sounds like a keeper — scroll down to learn more about the lucky guy.
He's worked with Hollywood heavyweights.

Last year, The Hollywood Reporter dubbed Joe "Hollywood's Next Big Thing." He rose to fame after starring in Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk alongside Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin. It was recently announced that he's working on an upcoming project — The Favourite — with Academy Award-winning La La Land actress Emma Stone.
He knows Taylor Swift's squad members.

Acting isn't his only claim to fame. The Brit also did a photoshoot with Gigi Hadid (aka T-Swift's BFF) for Vogue.
"I wasn’t one of those kids who get up on the table and dance at a young age," Joe admitted at the time of the photoshoot. "But I always wanted to be an actor. I just never told anybody — I kept it a secret."
He keeps a low profile.

Aside from the fact that he's dating one of the most famous women in the world, Joe keeps his private life exactly that, private. And lucky for him, this go-around Taylor was completely on board with that.
"She’s been walking around with Joe in London using disguises, like scarves and hats, to keep her identity under wraps," the source continued. "Nobody has a clue they’ve been walking past a music superstar — not even her new neighbors… After her 1989 tour and all the attention Taylor received, she learned she had to be more protective of her personal life and she and Joe decided early on to keep their private life private."
