Taylor Swift is a self-professed Kennedy fanatic, but apparently the fandom runs both ways.

“She’s awesome,” Rory Kennedy, aunt of the singer’s new beau, Conor Kennedy, said Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer tour in Beverly Hills. “She’s a great friend of all of ours.”

Rory spoke out at an HBO panel for Ethel, the documentary she directed about the life of her mother, Kennedy matriarch Ethel Kennedy.
