Taylor Swift: Becoming A Kennedy Is A ‘Fantasy’ Come True

Taylor has only been dating Conor for two months, but she’s had her sights set on the Kennedy family for several years!

It hard not to be fascinated by the Kennedys — just ask Taylor SwiftHer not-so-secret infatuation with America’s iconic family began way before she started dating 18-year-old Conor Kennedy nearly two months ago.

“She says it’s a fantasy come true,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “She’s very smitten.”

Maybe a little too much. Ever since the two met in July, the country crooner, 22, has completely rearranged her schedule to spend as much time as possible with Conor — and the rest of the Kennedy clan. Just last weekend, Taylor accompanied Conor to visit his mother’s grave and joined him at his cousin Kyle‘s wedding on Aug. 18.

“She’s head over heels,” notes the insider. “He’s a smart, sensitive guy.”

Is Taylor Swift Only Dating Conor Because He’s A Kennedy?

While there’s no denying that Taylor is attracted to the young Kennedy (the two have been spotted kissing all over Hyannis Port, MA!), many wonder if the attraction has anything to do with his famous last name. According to a source, she loves that her new beau gives her entrée to the storied political family.

Taylor has been enamored with the Kennedys ever since she watched a 2011 miniseries detailing their lives. Soon after, she began collecting memorabilia for her Nashville and Beverly Hills homes and pouring over the clan’s history. “I just read a 900-page book called The Kennedy Women,” she said during an interview with Rolling Stone last summer. A few months later, Rory Kennedy asked Taylor for concert tickets. In January, Taylor showed up at Sundance Film Festival to screen Ethel, Rory’s documentary about her mother (and Conor’s grandmother).

Six months later, Rory invited Taylor to the family’s compound for 4th of July weekend where she set her sights on Conor. “She’s a great friend of all of ours,” Rory gushes. “She’s awesome, and we love her.”
