The Kennedy-Shriver clan has welcomed Miley Cyrus into the fold after realizing she is nothing like Taylor Swift, a source close to the family tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

The new relationship between Cyrus, who celebrated her 22nd birthday with a raunchy Hollywood party Saturday, and Patrick Schwarzenegger, 21, is “going very strong” with the support of his mom, Maria Shriver, the source says.

As Radar exclusively reported, Shriver was initially “horrified” to learn Cyrus was her son’s new girlfriend and was “violently” against his relationship with the twerking pop star.

“Patrick has done a marvelous job in turning Maria from being violently opposed to now saying she’s a sweet girl and she was really mistaken from not knowing her and only knowing about her from her press,” the source says.

The biggest obstacle for Cyrus earning the trust of Schwarzenegger’s relatives was the Kennedy-Shriver family’s experience two years ago when Conor Kennedy — son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.dated pop star Taylor Swift, the source reveals.

Swift became obsessed with the Kennedys, even buying a home near the famous Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.

“Conor’s just an 18-year-old kid and wasn’t ready for anything super serious, but Taylor is looking for her soulmate and it kind of freaked him out with how strong she came on,” an insider told Radar at the time.

“Maria was terrified that it would be another nightmare like the Taylor situation,” the source says. “Taylor swift was their biggest fear. They all thought it was going to turn out like that.”

But Miley and Patrick have made the rounds to reassure the relatives in the past week. “Patrick is really trying to do give Miley positive PR with Kennedy-Shriver clan,” the source says.

Schwarzenegger has made no secret of his crush on Cyrus in recent months. Subsequently, the source says, she reached out to him soon after 21st birthday in September.

Cyrus and Schwarzenegger took their new love public with displays of affection last week at a USC Trojan’s football game in Los Angeles, openly kissing at the stadium.

And, as Radar reported, the couple partied on Saturday night for Miley’s 22nd birthday party.
