Everyone knows Taylor Swift's favorite number is 13, and ringing in the year 2013 was extra exciting for the superstar, as she got to spend it with not one, but two, handsome men! She chose to spend the stroke of midnight kissing boyfriend Harry Styles of One Direction, but earlier celebrated with her other favorite guy--her 20-year-old younger brother, Austin.
The Swift siblings were spotted on the streets of New York City heading out to dinner, both stylishly bundled up in cold-weather gear, prior to her scheduled performance in Times Square as part of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2013.
Austin Swift is a college student who matriculated at Notre Dame, but has since transferred to Nashville's Vanderbilt University. He's also an aspiring photographer who freelances for Getty Images. He snapped shots of his famous sister for a People feature in 2009.
The family bond appears to be tight between the pair--Taylor has taken Austin as her date to several awards shows over the past few years; including the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, the 2011 People's Choice Awards, and the 2009 CMT Awards.
