Ethel Kennedy Plays Matchmaker to Taylor Swift

Jonathan Leibson/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Turns out it was matchmaker Ethel Kennedy who was reportedly behind the pairing of her grandson Conor and singer/song-writer Taylor Swift.

Apparently the 83-year-old widow of Robert F. Kennedy is a big fan of Swift’s music and reached out to Taylor, and the two became friends.

In fact, this winter, Swift walked the Kennedy matriarch down the red carpet at the premiere of an HBO documentary about the widow’s life.

Kennedy set up her pal Swift with her grandson on July 4, and fireworks instantly went off.

The New York Post added that on Saturday, the couple went sailing and Swift was seen talking to Ethel Kennedy. On Sunday, Swift and Conor Kennedy reportedly attended church together.

According to the Post, the two have been seen together three times in the past month. A classic example of how, once again, grandmother always knows best.
