Three hidden revelations about Taylor Swift's private life she snuck into her new album Lover.

Taylor Swift’s new album Lover is here and contains more hidden messages than a CIA document.

In the album, the 29-year-old chart-topping musician and expert lyricist drops a whole bunch of clues about her relationship, her friendships and her family, you just have to know the right places to look.

So, here are three apparent confessions about Taylor Swift’s personal life that she alludes to in the songs found on her new album Lover. 

Taylor Swift might already be married to her longtime partner, Joe Alwyn.

The biggest takeaway from Swift’s new Lover album is the fact that fans are taking some of the lyrics from her song Paper Rings to mean that she is already secretly married to her partner of more than three years, 28-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn.

The biggest hint that the couple are already married comes from the Paper Rings line “I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings / Uh huh, that’s right / Darling, you’re the one I want.”

Adding even more fuel to this tangled romance web is the fact that fans are assuming these lyrics mean that the couple have actually been married for just over a year, thanks to the fact that ‘paper’ is the traditional gift for a one year wedding anniversary.

In this same song, Taylor also alludes to the fact that she “stalked” Joe online after their first meeting, singing, “Went home and tried to stalk you on the internet/Now I’ve read all the books beside your bed.”

How romantic.

She no longer holds her iconic Fourth of July party thanks to her solid relationship with Joe Alwyn and broken friendship with Karlie Kloss

Images from Taylor’s celebrity-filled annual Fourth of July holiday party used to dominate headlines long after the event had passed (who could forget the year her boyfriend at the time,Tom Hiddleston, rocked around the party in an ‘I Love TS’ tank-top?) but for the last two years her Rhode Island home remained pointedly empty during the holiday.

She’s never addressed the rumour about why she shut down the party, but in the Lover track Cruel Summer there is a line that suggests the reason for putting a halt to the event was about trying to conceal a new love interest:

“I don’t wanna keep secrets just to keep you” she says in the song.  Fans have speculated that this line is referencing boyfriend Joe Alwyn and her desire not to put their relationship on show at the party.

However, if you reach a little further, it could also be linked to her rumoured former best friend model Karlie Kloss, who used to be a staple at the Fourth of July event.

Despite the fact that Karlie says the pair are fine, they’re never seen together anymore and Taylor famously did not attend Karlie’s wedding.

Her mother’s cancer diagnosis has been heartbreaking for her family, even though she rarely acknowledges it publicly.

In the new Lover track Soon You’ll Get Better, Taylor has addressed her mother Andrea Swift’s cancer diagnosis in a way that she has never done before.

In a line that sees the musician opening up about the deep fear she has that she might lose her mother to the disease, she sings “And I hate to make this all about me/ But who am I supposed to talk to?/ What am I supposed to do?/ If there’s no you.”

In the tune, Taylor also recalls the first visit to the doctor’s office with her mother, singing  “I didn’t tell you I was scared.” It’s by far the most emotional track on the album.
