As the son of the late Mary Richardson and Robert Kennedy Jr. — the nephew of the late President of the United States John F. Kennedy – Conor’s name has certainly been known to history buffs since his birth in 1994.

However, with his relationship with the “Sparks Fly” songstress, 22, now blossoming into a full romance, the rest of the world is now ready to get acquainted with the 18-year-old.

Launch the gallery to learn more about Taylor’s new beau and his famous all-American clan.

Besides Conor, the rest of the Kennedy family have too taken a liking to the country crooner.

Conor’s grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, has publicly given her blessing to the couple.

“We should be so lucky,” the family matriarch says of Swift one day marrying into her political family.

Likewise, Rory Kennedy, the aunt of the singer’s new beau, shares Ethel’s sentiment.

“She’s awesome,” Rory adds. “She’s a great friend of all of ours.”

Recently, Taylor and Conor were spotted getting cozy aboard a boat in Hyannis Port, Mass., where the pair shared a romantic weekend on the Kennedy compound.
