On August 1, a source confirmed to Us Weekly that "Taylor is officially dating Conor Kennedy." The country music superstar was previously linked to Conor's model/actor cousin, Patrick Schwarzenegger, after she was photographed hanging out with him and his relatives at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts on July 4.
"She is pretty head over heels," the source says of Swift, whose exes include Joe Jonas, 22, Taylor Lautner, 20, Jake Gyllenhaal, 31, and John Mayer, 34. "It's really puppy love right now."
Conor, the 18-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy, has also been leaning on Swift since his mother's suicide in May. "Taylor has been a real shoulder to cry on," the source explains.
Ethel Kennedy, Conor's grandmother, and Rory Kennedy, Conor's aunt, have already given Swift their seal of approval. "She's a great friend of all of ours," Rory said during the Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills August 1. "She's awesome and we love her."
Can they see the "Mean" singer becoming a Kennedy some day? "We should be so lucky!" Ethel said.
