“Every week it’s like something new, like really? It truly feels like I’m in some kind of an alternate universe,” Kelce said on TODAY in appearance Oct. 6. “It’s just really, really strange, but it’s fun. It’s a great ride.”
Today co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb asked the mother of the tight end about the rumored relationship between her son Travis Kelce and Swift. Yet, the mother of the NFL player kept it tight about her son’s personal life.
“It’s fairly new, so I don’t like to talk about it,” she said. “It’s just one of those things where you know, obviously everybody saw me. I was in the boxes with with her and it’s just another thing that’s amped up my life.”
When asked if she thinks it’s a budding romance, she replied: “I honestly can’t tell you. It’s just too new.”
Donna was making waves online when she was spotted next to Swift at the Kansas City Chiefs home game against the Chicago Bears on September 24th.
After a few months of a romance swirling the news, Swift’s appearance at the game had many wondering about the connection with Kelce. Following the victory that day, the two left the stadium together, driving in what Kelce described as a “getaway car” a nod to a Taylor Swift song.
While on TODAY, Donna Kelce described sitting with Swift in plain terms: “It was OK.”
“I’ll talk about my life and when the kids were little and I was with them, but they’re men now,” she said. “They’ve got their own lives and there isn’t a man alive that’s going to talk to their mom about their personal life. It’s just not gonna happen.”
Swift also made an appearance a week later on October 1st with Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and more attending the Chiefs game against the New York jets.
Her parenting style has always been to let her sons have control over the decision making process in life, she said on TODAY.
“No, no, no, I don’t give them advice,” she said. “They’ve got to sink or swim on their own, and they have to make their own mistakes and make their own wonderful accomplishments in life, and then they know it’s theirs.”
“I really think it’s important that you follow them. What do they want to do? What do they love? If you can support them, that’s the best you can possibly do,” she added. “There’s all kinds of ways that you can help them achieve their dreams. What more could you want as a parent?”
During the game at MetLife, Kelce was also spotted on the broadcast giving a hug to Swift.
“Travis Kelce’s biggest fans,” text over the video read, plus a red-heart emoji.

“Shout-out to Mama Kelce for coming through. She also told me thank you because she was in an alternate universe,” he added. “She was sitting there with Deadpool and Wolverine … just in a different world.”
Donna Kelce also went viral earlier this year for her Super Bowl 2023 game day outfit, through which she managed to always cheer for the “offense.”
“The NFL is laughing all the way to the bank,” she said on a recent episode of the “Got It From My Momma” podcast. “They’ve told me personally that the Kelce family has done more good PR for football than they could’ve paid a million dollars to a PR firm. It’s just because we’re relatable. We’re just normal. We’re genuine.”
