If you’ve been curious as to how Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris were set up, we finally have answers. As both Taylor and Calvin share Ellie Goulding as a mutual friend, it was Ellie who was the ultimate matchmaker! Let her tell you the story!
Step aside, Patti Stanger! Taylor Swift, 25, and Calvin Harris, 31, have Ellie Goulding, 28, to thank for their lovefest, as she was mastermind behind getting these two lovebirds together. Now, we’ve learned even more details from Ellie herself on why she felt so passionately that these two would be such a great fit. Check out what she had to say!
“I did play matchmaker, that’s true. Calvin is a really great mate and he’s so fantastic, and Taylor is such a cool person who I love,” Ellie told The Sun. “I thought, ‘They’re both really awesome and both really tall, they’ll brilliant together’.” (Fun fact — Taylor is actually 5’10” with Calvin a bit taller at 6’5″. So, YES, these two are quite the tall couple.)
The two reportedly hit it off backstage in February during the 2015 Brit Awards, and were later seen holding hands leaving an after party together. Since then, the two have been spotted quite a bit together. From wine nights, to racy lingerie shopping, the romance is totally taking off in a major way.
Besides Ellie, it seems another friend of Taylor’s is very supportive of these two. Ed Sheeran, 24, opened up to ZM Online back in May about his admiration for Calvin. “He’s a really nice guy. Really, really nice guy,” he said. ‘There are certain people that are just nice people in the industry. I met him maybe a year ago.” Well, it sounds like a match made in heaven!
So adorable! As Taylor is the proud mom of two cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson, she won’t have to worry too much about them while she will be away on her 1989 tour. Why? Well, we’ve learned at HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Calvin will be watching over these cute lil’ fur balls.
“Add cat baby sitter to Calvin’s duties as boyfriend,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He brought it up to Taylor that he would be happy to watch her cats while she is away, so she took him up on it. So you will probably see Calvin in New York a lot more without her.” Could these two sound any more perfect together?
