The rumor mill has been buzzing non-stop with speculation about why Taylor Swift was at her parent's house when Tom Hiddleston returned from shooting in Australia instead of in LA to greet him; why it took three days for the couple to follow each other on Instagram; not to mention the lingering whys and wonders about how recent chaotic events might have affected their relationship in its infancy—especially since Hiddleston has always been on the more private side of the celebrity spectrum.

Swift, 26, moved on with the British hunk, 35, just two weeks after breaking up with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris in June.

(The Scottish DJ, 32, has since been hanging out with Mexican actress-singer Eiza González.)Hiddleston and Swift first flirted at the 2016 Met Gala in May, then shocked the internet when they were spotted kissing on a beach in Rhode Island in June.

One day before reporting for jury duty in Nashville, she attended Blake Lively's dual baby shower and 29th birthday party at Bedford Post Inn in New York on August 28.

“They were all over each other — hugging and kissing — even though there were 20 people coming and going on the beach,” an eyewitness said at the time.

"They looked like any young couple madly in love without a care in the world."After meeting each other’s parents, the duo then jetted off to Rome and Australia, where Swift sought support from Hiddleston after getting attacked by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
