In case you missed this very cute turn of events, Taylor Swift has been collaborating with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn lately—and in the most Taylor move ever, she attempted to keep it a secret by giving Joe a ~code name~ a.k.a. William Bowery.

    It took fans about five seconds to realize that Joe was William, and Taylor confirmed as much during folklore: the long pond studio sessions on Disney+, saying “There’s been a lot of discussion about William Bowery and his identity. He’s not a real person… William Bowery is Joe, as we know. And Joe, Joe plays piano beautifully, and he’s always just playing and making things up and kind of creating things.”

    So….how did Tay and Joe come up with the name William Bowery? Taylor confirmed that Joe was actually responsible for the pseudonym during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, saying “he did” when asked who picked the name. “You gotta ask him because it’s really more of his story than mine,” she continued, to which Jimmy responded “turn the camera around.”

    Tragically she didn’t, but her face during this moment? Priceless.
