Ina Garten Wished Taylor Swift a Happy Birthday, Proving She Too Is a Swiftie Forever

Ina Garten shared a very special birthday message to her friend, Taylor Swift, as one does.

The Folklore singer turned 32 years old on Monday, December, 13, and celebrated the occasion with a soirée for herself and singer-turned-actress Alana Haim (Licorice Pizza), who shares a birthday.

And while the Barefoot Contessa wasn’t in attendance at the bash (as far as we know), she shared an Instagram tribute to Swift on her personal account, proving that she, like us, is a Swiftie through and through.

“Happy Birthday to one of the most creative artistic geniuses of our time! You are such an inspiration for anyone who wants to sail their own ship. Sending love,” she captioned the image of Swift performing in a sequined unitard.

How exactly did these two become friends? According to Garten, the pair have long been fans of one another. In a 2018 interview with the Huffington Post, the chambray-clad chef revealed that she and the pop star have bonded over a wide range of topics, including boyfriends, businesses, friends and life. In 2019, Garten posted another Instagram birthday message to Swift, calling the singer a “beacon of light for women of all generations.”

“She’s very smart and very interesting and she loves her friends,” Garten has said. “She is wise beyond her years, to say the least.”

Swift and Garten also worked together for Food Networks Magazine as part of the publication's Food Network chefs and their music friends feature. 

The real question is, how many times do we think Ina has listened to “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version)”? We’re willing to bet she knows every word by heart.
