Everyone’s been talking about Taylor Swift‘s budding romance with her beau Conor Kennedy, but the 18-year-old grandson of the late Robert Kennedy isn’t the only one who’s blown away by the pop-country superstar. Conor’s grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, recently gushed that her new neighbor is “sensational.”

“She is just spectacular,” Ethel told People of Swift at the RFK golf tournament at the Hyannisport Club on Oct. 12. “She’s just sensational inside and out.”

It’s a good thing Mrs. Kennedy thinks so highly of the ‘Begin Again’ hitmaker, too, because Taylor and Conor have been jet-setting around the country, hanging with his family in Massachusetts as well as Swift’s family in Nashville. Not to mention the fact that the 22-year-old sensation bought a house of her own in the Kennedy’s Hyannis Port, Mass. neighborhood. According to Ethel, Swift has blended right in with the family — even when that means sailing, dragging and doing other things she’s never done before.

“You know what she really is? She’s game. She had never sailed before; she sailed,” Ethel continued. “She had never gone dragging before; she dragged. She played anything that everyone else was doing. And she was good at it and no fuss. And I’m happy that we’ll be neighbors. I’m thrilled.”

Conor’s aunt, Kerry Kennedy, echoed Ethel’s sentiments.

“She’s wonderful, we’re all so happy that she’s our neighbor in Hyannis Port. She came up several weekends this summer and she was a complete participant in every single thing with our large and active family,” Kerry said. “If somebody said, ‘Lets go sailing,’ she jumped on the boat.”

Looks like Swift and the Conor don’t have to worry about getting the Kennedy stamp of approval on their relationship — it’s already marked in ink. And it’s a good thing, too. An anonymous source told People that Swift is already head-over-heels for her boyfriend. Sounds like she has healed from the old heartbreaks she sings about on ‘Red’!
