He has met the parents!
Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have been in Nashville all week, but Thursday marked an important occasion. T. Swift went to lunch with her parents at a restaurant named Epice after visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame while Tom hung out at her house, but afterwards, Taylor and her parents returned to their home where the "Out of the Woods" singer introduced Tom to her mom and dad. It looks like they're getting serious!
Not only did Tom and Taylor take that big step in their relationship, she also introduced him to more of her friends, as they went on a double date with Holly Williams and her husband in Nashville. Williams is the granddaughter of famed musician Hank Williams. Tom became close with the family while filming I Saw the Light. The foursome was spotted at Adele's restaurant, where Swift wore another all-black ensemble, but this time it featured a low-cut neckline. "The group got along great and it ended up being a long 3 hour dinner," an eyewitness tells E! News.
"Taylor had several cocktails and was having an amazing night. She and Tom were very comfortable together in front of her friends and they had so much to talk about. They held hands at the dinner table all night and pretty much never let go of one another," the onlooker notes.
"They were playing all sorts of little flirty games while holding hands. She put her hand behind his neck and he was kissing her hand throughout the meal. They were far more affectionate than their friends and weren't shy at all. The restaurant was very public with no walls and a big open room, but they didn't care about being noticed. They couldn't stop holding hands and kissing."
The double date also comes one night after the couple, dubbed Hiddleswift, went to an "intimate" dinner together. Taylor, 26, and Tom, 35, "seemed very comfortable with each other," an onlooker told E! News of their night out. This week in Nashville has been a nonstop one for the new couple, as they were also spotted at Selena Gomez's concert with Taylor's longtime BFF Abigail and her boyfriend. The concert seemed to be Tom's first dip into Taylor's friend circle, but it's obvious now that he has been fully immersed.
Although it appears like Taylor and Tom went from zero to 60 in only a matter of moments, a source previously told us that Taylor was "hesitant to get involved so quickly" after her breakup with Calvin Harris. "There was an immediate attraction," another source said of Hiddleswift. Taylor "is not on rebound mode," noted the source, "even though Tom questioned it a little when they first started talking."
Another source said Taylor and Tom are "already very attached," and based on these meet-and-greets, they really are!
But it shouldn't come as a surprise that Tom is all in already. In Vulture's profile of the British actor, Tom reveals that he's a 100 percent guy, 100 percent of the time. "My great strength, and my great weakness, is that I can't do anything by halves. So when I do something I do it to the exclusion of everything else. Which is great for the work and less great for my life, if you know what I mean," he shares.
"I'm all in, and I can say that with absolute confidence knowing that every director will back that up. But I say it's a weakness because I can't switch it off."
Our sources tell us that Taylor and Tom have since left Nashville and are now lying low in the English countryside after flying to England last night.
