Whether you're a massive Taylor Swift stan or not, there's no denying that the fan theories about her new album Folklore are pretty convincing - and we're particularly loving this wholesome one about her ex, Joe Jonas.
On song 'Invisible String', Taylor sings: "Cold was the steel of my axe to grind / For the boys who broke my heart / Now I send their babies presents," - and fans are convinced it's about the evolution of her friendship with Joe (who she dated in 2008).
ICYMI, Joe's wife Sophie Turner is pregnant, and the lyrics could be interpreted to mean that Taylor is happy for her teen boyfriend. At least, that's what the internet thinks:

Man, taylor swift going from "last kiss" to "now I send their babies presents" about Joe Jonas is what I call growing up

If in 2008 someone told me that in 2019 Joe Jonas would sing a bit of Lover by Taylor Swift on tik tok, and in 2020 Taylor Swift would refer to Joe Jonas's baby in her new song “For the boys who broke my heart / now I send their babies presents”, I would laugh at em #folklore

Of course, it wouldn't be the first time Taylor has written a song about Joe, who is said to have ended their relationship over the phone. Swifties believe that 'Forever & Always,' 'Better Than Revenge,' and of course, the soul-crushing ballad, 'Last Kiss' are all about him. However, 'Invisible String' is a different vibe than the others, and shows just how much our Taylor has matured.
It's not the only sweet reference on the album, either. Fans reckon Taylor's boyfriend Joe Alwyn secretly penned two of the tracks, while they also reckon they've cracked another case in the form of the song 'betty', which Swifties reckon is the name of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' third child.
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to discover more hidden Easter eggs on this album.
