Taylor Swift has approval from the family of her new boyfriend Conor Kennedy. Both his aunt Rory and his grandmother Ethel sang praises for the 22-year-old singer at the Television Critics Association summer tour on Wednesday. “She’s awesome,” Rory gushed at the HBO panel for her movie “Ethel.” “She’s a great friend of all of ours.” Ethel added, “We should be so lucky.” The older Kennedy, however, denied rumor that she played matchmaker for her 18-year-old grandson and Taylor. Taylor was recently spotted spending the weekend with Conor at the Kennedy family compound in Massachusetts. They enjoyed pizza, strolled barefooted, jumped on a trampoline and sailed with some friends.
