In fact, this is how Ed described their very first writing session to Rolling Stone: "We wrote a song on a trampoline, ate some apple pie and had a jam. It was very fun."

GET ME ON THAT TRAMPOLINE!

8. And they released that amazingly cute video for "Everything Has Changed".

9. Their love and respect for each other is by no means a secret – look at the T-shirt Taylor's wearing.

10. They have a healthy competition that motivates them to be better.

Ed has called Taylor his competitor but added: "It's a healthy competition. She's someone to aspire to because she's one of the biggest touring acts and record-selling acts on the planet. That's where I want to be and I'll work up to that point."

11. They're there for each other when it all gets a bit overwhelming.

12. Whenever they're side by side it's like they're sharing all the innermost secrets of the universe.

What are you two giggling about???

Ed's totally fine straightening Taylor's pal's hair.

14. They help each other out in the search for true love.

This is what Ed told Heatworld at the BBC Music Awards when asked if they set each other up with dates: "She did the same for me, friends do that – they find friends you'll get on with. I've been in a relationship for a while now and she's, Taylor's in a relationship with her music!"

15. Of course, they both have a love that runs deeper than any other: their love of cats.

Once Ed Sheeran lost his phone and Taylor Swift told Capital FM: "Someone's gonna get videos of me having a conversation with my cat that I sent Ed... and like YouTube videos and stuff like that. He's one of my best friends... Legitimately."

Taylor, you're killing us here.

16. Despite the fact that they're both mega superstars with fancy parties to attend and people swooning all over them, they keep each other grounded.

17. And they always find time to goof around.

It’s a Drake quote, “Started from the bottom, now we here.” It also includes a mini Taylor and Ed talking about their favorite things (Legos, cats, and music).
