Time to celebrate! Taylor Swift’s longtime BFF Abigail Anderson is engaged to her boyfriend, Matt Lucier. The bride-to-be announced the exciting news with a gorgeous Instagram photo of herself kissing her new fiancé on Tuesday, June 28.
“Tonight I answered the easiest question I’ve ever been asked,” she captioned the shot. “Without any doubt and without fear – I am so excited for this next chapter in our lives. … Thank you to my family & all of my friends that went the extra mile to make sure this night was everything I’ve ever imagined. #HePutARingOnIt.”
Tonight I answered the easiest question I've ever been asked. Without any doubt and without fear – I am so excited for this next chapter in our lives @mattthephotographer ??

Lucier, who proposed at Centennial Park in their hometown of Nashville, posted another stunning lakeside pic, writing, “@abigail_lauren lucier… Has a nice ring to it… Boom!pun of the day goes to me #dreamgirl.”
Shortly after the sweet proposal, Anderson also shared the news on Snapchat. “A MILLION TIMES, YES!” she captioned a picture of herself showing off her gorgeous new engagement ring.
Anderson, 26, was the inspiration behind Swift’s 2009 single “Fifteen,” which tells the story of the duo’s freshman year of high school, where they both suffered heartbreak for the first time.
“You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail and soon enough you’re best friends,” she sings before adding, “Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind / And we both cried.”
In April 2015, the pop singer, 26, threw her BFF an epic 25th birthday party in Nashville, where she surprised guests with a fun-filled performance from Anderson’s favorite band, Dashboard Confessional, and Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams.
Earlier this month, Anderson posted a sweet message to the star after news broke that she had split from boyfriend Calvin Harris. “There are a few things more significant or valuable than a friendship that will withstand the test of time,” she wrote via Instagram. “Thank you for getting me. Always. @taylorswift.”
Swift and her new beau, Tom Hiddleston, are in the midst of a romantic globetrotting adventure. Since going public with their relationship on June 15 (only two weeks after her split from Harris), the couple has traveled to Rhode Island, Nashville, Los Angeles, England and Italy.
