London - Taylor Swift has introduced Conor Kennedy to her parents.

The 'Love Story' singer began dating the 18-year-old son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy in June and she has shown how serious they are by taking him to her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

While they were there, the smitten pair also enjoyed a date at a barbecue diner and onlookers say they couldn't keep their hands off each other.

Taylor - who has previously dated John Mayer, Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal - has already impressed Conor's side of the family after his aunt, Rory Kennedy, gave her the seal of approval.She said: "She's awesome. She's a great friend of all of ours."

Conor has had a difficult time recently after his mother Mary hanged herself on May 16 in a barn near the family home in New York's Westchester County amid bitter divorce proceedings in which Robert won temporary custody of their four children, aged 11 to 18.

He recently applied to be named administrator of his mother's estate, a request his father had no objections to. - Bang Showbiz
