Taylor Swift is said to have a long list of ex-lovers. And she’s mentioned “kids” before on social media. But how many kids does Taylor Swift have?
Taylor Swift does not have any kids. The rumors that Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray are her children started due to a Tweet Taylor made in 2021, but her comment was made in jest.
Taylor Swift has been in a serious relationship with Joe Alwyn since 2016 but does not have any immediate plans to have children.
The “Blank Space” singer has been linked to artists and famous actors alike. She is very open when it comes to talking about her relationships. She also has a penchant for memorializing her fallen relationships in soulful melodies.
But does Taylor Swift have a secret baby?
Is Olivia Rodrigo her daughter? Or is her own kid with Joe in the near future? And what about Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds’ kids? What is their connection with Taylor?
Let us examine each heartbreaker who has been fortunate enough to have a relationship with her.
Who is Taylor Swift’s child?
The renowned singer Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift’s full name) has no children and hasn’t had the experience of motherhood yet.
And yes, it’s Alison with one “L” and not Taylor Allison Swift.
She is currently dating longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn, and she has mentioned her plans to take a step further in her relationship. But thus far has not made any specific comments about children.
The global star talked to the US Magazine, explaining that “She’s very excited about that chapter of her life when the timing is right.”
She further added to the statement:
Alwyn has been a “huge support system for her” since she has released her new album, ‘Folklore.’
In 2018, the US Magazine reported that Swift was the happiest she’s ever been.
Alwyn opened up about his decision to keep his life private, saying:
“I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I? And that is defined as being ‘strangely private.’ But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.”
The speculations that the twosome was already engaged began surfacing around August 2019 when Taylor Swift released the title track off her album, ‘Lover.’
The US weekly issue says that the couple has marriage on the cards, but the deadline is not set.
Swift admitted in her Netflix documentary, Miss Americana:
“I was falling in love with someone who had a wonderfully normal, balanced life. We decided together we wanted our relationship to be private. Even though it was really horrible, I was happy. But I wasn’t happy in the way I was trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. We were just happy.”

Does Taylor Swift have a connection with Ryan Reynolds’ kids?
Taylor Swift is best friends with Hollywood A list couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively and also shares a great bond with their children. She even used the names of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ children as inspiration for the characters of her song Betty.
Taylor Swift released the folklore album in 2020, in which she dropped the name of Blake Lively and Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds’ children’s names- James, Inez, and Betty.
Discussing his thoughts about Swift using his kid’s names in her hit song, the Deadpool star said he was fine with it. He added that he trusts Swift “implicitly” because she is sensitive to that stuff.
This is what the actor said while speaking to SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show:
“The names are the names of our kids, but you know, we trust her implicitly. She’s very sensitive to any of that stuff and obviously, the song has nothing to do with our kids other than our kids’ names.”
Swift confirmed the theory that she had used Gossip Girl star Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ children as inspiration for the track.
Swift also said that:
“This is a song that I wrote from the perspective of a 17-year-old boy. And I’ve always loved that in music you can kind of slip into different identities and you can sing from other people’s perspectives, and that’s what I did in this one.”
So it’s not specifically about them or about Taylor as the identity of the person is unclear and largely fictional.
But it actually goes deeper than that between the American singer and her close friends.
Taylor’s 2022 album Midnights features the song “You’re On Your Own, Kid” with the line “I see the great escape, so long, Daisy May / I picked the petals, he loves me not”, and many have speculated that “Daisy May” or perhaps “Daisy Mae”, may just well be the name of Blake and Ryan’s unborn fourth child.

Does Taylor Swift want kids?
Taylor Swift has hinted in many of her songs that she wants children with her current boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. She sang about starting a family in her song, “peace”. But she has stopped short of making any specific public statements.
According to Elite Daily news, Taylor Swift’s song “peace” from her eighth studio album folklore is jam-packed with lyrics that hint that Taylor Swift is ready to take the next step in her relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
The couple’s been together since 2016, and Joe has been the focus of many of Swift’s songs, such as:
- “Paper Rings” (she sings about the possibility of getting married)
- Cornelia Street (refers to her NYC dates at the beginning of her relationship with Alwyn) “London Boy” (directed at Alwyn, who is British)
In the song, Swift reassures her love “that’s real” for Alwyn and that she’s willing to do anything for them. “All these people think love’s for the show, but I would die for you in secret.”
She, at a later point, hints that she wants to start a family by saying,
“You know that I’d swing with you for the fences, sit with you in the trenches, give you my wild, give you a child”.
But as of now, Taylor Swift is not sure if she wants kids. She told HuffPost:
“It’s impossible not to picture certain scenarios and how you would try to convince them that they have a normal life when, inevitably, there will be strange men pointing giant cameras at them.”

Does Taylor Swift have a song on the Songs for My Future Children compilation?
Yes. The Taylor Swift song “Lover” appears on this compilation album which was released in 2021. The song “Lover” was from her 2019 album of the same name, and the song is about her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
The album contains 15 tracks by artists like:
- Glass Animals
- Billie Eilish
- Gwen Stefani
But some fans have commented that it’s not really an official album and just a fan compilation that appears both on Spotify and YouTube.
One fan added:
“It’s essentially a tag. I think whoever made that Spotify collection put it on YouTube, and it was tagged as Taylor Swift, so it linked to her YouTube page. That would explain it not being uploaded to her account.”

Why did Taylor Swift call Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray her kids?
Taylor Swift called Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray her kids because both have passionately professed their appreciation for the singer, and Taylor admires both of these young singers greatly.
The ‘Red’ singer called Olivia her baby and responded to Olivia’s statement, “I would die for Taylor Swift” by sending her a cardigan from her “cardigan” merch collection when her album folklore reached number 1 in 2020.
Taylor posted on Instagram following the release of Olivia’s solo track ‘drivers license’, saying, “I say that’s my baby and I’m proud.” Olivia is simply a massive fan of the artist.
Additionally, Taylor shared a recent TikTok from Conan Gray, showing him and Olivia acting out a bedroom scene from the original ‘You Belong With Me’ music video. The short clip included Swift’s new version of the single (Taylor’s Version).
Taylor also wrote the caption:
“You ok? NO cause I sent my two kids Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray my new version of ‘You Belong With Me’ and THEY ARE SO CUTE IT PHYSICALLY HURTS ME ((Album out at midnight!)).”
But the rumors of Taylor being Olivia’s mother also started because of the way Olivia has been open about her love for Taylor Swift.

Which of Taylor Swift’s exes had a baby?
None of the many people Taylor Swift has dated had children at the time they were dating Taylor.
That being said, 2 of them have had children with other women since breaking up with Taylor. Those ex-boyfriends with kids include:
- Joe Jonas (July 2008 – October 2008) – 2 kids
- Tom Hiddleston (June 2016 – September 2016) – 1 child
Many fans wonder how many kids Taylor Swift has because of her long dating history with famous singers and actors.
One rumor was that Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray are her kids, but this is simply false. The rumor most likely got started from Olivia continuously professing her love for the country singer’s music.
But Taylor Swift does not have any children.
However, in her song “peace” from her album folklore, she has hinted that she is ready to start a family with her long-time boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. And no doubt Taylor Swift fans would like nothing more than for Taylor to bust out a baby bump and start a family!
The 31-year-old singer has a promising career ahead, and she is probably focusing on her music right now.
