Taylor Swift’s parents, Scott Swift and Andrea Swift, have been her biggest support system since the early days of her career. The pop star has a close relationship with her mom and dad, who have been in the crowd at most shows of her Eras tour in 2023.
Scott, who was born in 1952, made headlines when he attended one of Taylor’s November 2023 shows in Argentina. He watched the concert from a VIP tent with his daughter’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce, and also joined the couple for dinner while the NFL star was in town.
Even before they relocated permanently, Andrea, who was born in 1958, was often taking trips to Nashville with Taylor so the then-teenager could drop her demos off with record labels. “My mom waited in the car with my little brother while I knocked on doors up and down Music Row,” the “Blank Space” singer shared in 2008. “I would say, ‘Hi, I’m Taylor. I’m 11. I want a record deal. Call me.
While Scott and Andrea are set for life thanks to their daughter’s incredible career, they were both employed before she became a superstar. Andrea worked as a marketing manager for an advertising agency and eventually stopped working to raise her family. Scott was a stockbroker and financial advisor for Merill Lynch.
“I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know,” Taylor shared. “She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle … or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about.”
