Has Taylor Swift found a new Romeo in Patrick Schwarzenegger – or are they just happy to be celebrating Independence Day?

On the Fourth of July, the Grammy winner, 22, was spotted hugging Schwarzenegger – the son of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger – after spending time with him and much of the Kennedy clan at the family’s Cape Cod compound the day before. The two were also seen laughing and walking along the beach together.

“Had such an amazing day,” the 18-year-old Schwarzenegger, a male model and owner of a philanthropic clothing line called Project360, Tweeted. “Best 4th of July I could ask for. Hope everyone had a great day!”

On Monday, Swift performed a duet with James Taylor at the Tanglewood Music Festival, in Lenox, Mass. The “Love Story” singer has previously been linked to Joe Jonas, John Mayer, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

But this isn’t the first time the singer has been seen hanging out with the Kennedy family: In January, ABC News reported that Swift was at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of the documentary Ethel (about Ethel Kennedy), where she was spotted alongside the film’s director Rory Kennedy. And Swift told Vogue at the time, “The only time in my life I have ever been starstruck was meeting Caroline and Ethel Kennedy.”
