Taylor Swift and Blake Lively’s friendship just keeps getting sweeter.
The singer and actress first connected in 2015 after Lively shared a pH๏τo from a L’Oréal campaign that cheekily referenced Swift’s star-studded “Bad Blood” music video in the caption.
“Soooo, turns out this WASN’T a video shoot for John Legend’s cover of Bad Blood,” Lively wrote at the time. “@lorealparisofficial blew it out for this one. My #pinkobsession is exposed now. Ok your turn. I won’t tell! #AlsoTurnsOutJohnLegendIsntCoveringBadBlood Time to start a peтιтion!”
While fans initially took the caption as shade, Lively quickly cleared things up, revealing that she was a total Swiftie.
“Umm whoever thought I was throwin’ shade clearly doesn’t know I have a ‘Taylor Swift Please Be My Wife Voo Doo Doll,’” she wrote. “Love my Canadian family almost as much as I love Taylor Lively. I mean Swift. Ok, FIIINE we can hyphenate our last names. Xo Blake Swift-Lively 4eva.”
The two eventually met up in Australia for a fun-filled day out, and the rest is pretty much history.
Since then, the two have grown super close, sharing pH๏τos of their bond on social media, supporting each other at big events, and attending each other’s parties.
Swift has even featured Lively and Reynolds’s kids in her music. The couple’s daughter James has a voice cameo in Swift’s Reputation track “Gorgeous,” while James, Inez and Betty are all named-dropped in Folklore. Lively recently brought James and Inez along to the Eras Tour as they proudly supported their “aunt” Taylor.
