Ethel Kennedy: 'I'm thrilled Taylor Swift will be my neighbour'

Kennedy family matriarch Ethel Kennedy has confirmed her grandson Conor's girlfriend Taylor Swift is moving into the family's Hyannis Port neighborhood in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

The country star fell in love with the area while vacationing with her new beau this summer (12) and recent reports suggested she plans on moving there after purchasing a new home near the Kennedy family compound.


Swift reportedly purchased a beach mansion located opposite Ethel's home in August (12) - and now the Kennedy clan favorite has confirmed she's thrilled to have the singer nearby.


She tells WENN, "I'm happy that we'll be neighbors. I'm thrilled."


Sources suggest Swift hopes to spend more time around the Kennedys over Thanksgiving in November (12) - and Ethel admits the Love Story hitmaker is always welcome, because she's a big hit among Conor's relatives.


She adds, "She is just spectacular; she is just sensational... She's very kind.


"You know what she really is? She's game. She had never sailed before, she sailed; she had never gone dragging before, she dragged... She played everything that everyone else was doing (with) no fuss."


And she's not surprised her grandson has fallen in love with Swift, adding, "How could you not? I think the world has."
