The teen decided to share her fun fact after another user named Yazmine shared her own connection to Swift’s hometown.
“If you’re from Berks County, name your weird connection to Taylor Swift,” they said. “I’ll start: My mom’s old boss turned her away from singing at a bar.”
Well, Redner could obviously do one better. She stitched the video and then walked through the foyer of her house, opened the front door and stepped outside to reveal that she currently lives in the house Swift grew up in.
Naturally, TikTokers were jealous of Redner.
“YOU ARE SO LUCKY I’M CRYING,” one person said.
“Never been so jealous in my life,” another added.
“YOU’VE ACTUALLY WON AT LIFE,” a third commented.
In an interview with House Beautiful, Redner revealed that she and her family have lived at 78 Grandview Boulevard since 2013. And though Swift hasn’t lived there for years, she said that fans still stop by often.
“We get a lot of fans taking pictures outside the house,” she told House Beautiful. “I feel like there tends to be more around the holidays, when people are traveling from other states and want to see it. If Taylor Swift has a concert in Philadelphia or somewhere close, there are more fans around that time. Our family is fine with fans taking pictures as long as they are quick and respectful.”
Redner’s family has done some renovations to the house since the Swifts moved out, but the Grammy-winning singer did leave one thing behind that will never be erased.
“In the cement outside, there is an imprint that says ‘TAS,’” Redner revealed. Of course, nothing can be proven, but since these are Swift’s initials, it’s safe to assume that she left it there!
According to Taylor Swift lore, the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house in Reading, Pa., served as the writing space for many of the singer’s early songs, including “Love Story” and “Teardrops on My Guitar.” In a house that magical, it would only make sense that something beautiful was brought to life — even if it did involve some teardrops.
