(Photo credit: Wikipedia)If investing in expensive real estate across the street from the Kennedy compound wasn't enough proof that Taylor Swift is serious about Conor Kennedy--here's a simpler verification. The pair were caught kissing on camera for the first time, on Friday in Massachusetts.
The cute couple--he's the 18-year-old son of Robert Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy--are discreet in the photos, displaying a demure rather than heated embrace. However, it's hard to deny they seem genuine. Kennedy particularly looks smitten as he nuzzles Swift's cheek, while she grins for the photographers and links her fingers with his.
Swift's been spending lots of her summer with the Kennedy family. After being incorrectly linked to another Kennedy kid, Patrick Schwarzenegger, it was quickly noted by several sources that she was actually serious about his cousin Conor. Earlier this month she purchased a Cape Cod mansion close to Conor's grandmother, Ethel Kennedy.
She appears to have the green light from the tight-knit Kennedy clan--both Ethel and Conor's aunt Rory Kennedy have spoken favorably of her, with Ethel even going so far to say that the clan would be "lucky" to have her as an addition.
In addition to her new romance, Swift is busy with plans for her fourth album, which will be released in October. Her first single from the set, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," debuted last week. It's expected to break numerous records as soon as final numbers are released for this week's sales.
