Donna Kelce, affectionately known as Mama Kelce to NFL fans and now Swifties alike, now has her own merch.
Kelce’s sons are Jason Kelce, a center for the Philadelphia Eagles, and Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. The football family was catapulted to new heights in the public eye amid the latter Kelce’s relationship with acclaimed singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. The relationship has Swift’s loyal fans now learning about all things football from the Kelce brothers’ “New Heights” podcast.
Mama Kelce has now announced a collaboration with clothing brand Homage. The shirt reads “always rooting for the defense”, what Kelce always says regarding her two sons who play for different NFL teams. A portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the Heights School Foundation, which benefits under served students in need of scholarships, teaching grants, and program funding for current students and staff within Cleveland Heights-University Heights Schools. The family is originally from the Cleveland-Heights, Ohio area.

Amid her newfound friendship with Swift, the NFL mom of two remains private about the details of her son’s relationship with the singer. Some felt that she “shaded” Swift in a recent appearance on “The Today Show,” while others insisted that she simply could intend to keep her son’s personal life private at his request.
MamaKelce’s lips are sealed on what is going on between son #TravisKelce and TaylorSwift, but did share what she said to the pop superstar when they shared time in Travis’s private suite at the #KansasCityChiefs game at ArrowheadStadium. #DonnaKelce #TODAYShow #3rdHourTODAY
Swift is yet to directly speak on her relationship with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, though he has loosely referenced spending time with her on the podcast he shares with his brother. The “New Heights” podcast releases new episodes weekly.
The pair first met when he attended Swift’s “The Eras Tour” concert at his home stadium of Arrowhead. Here, Kelce attempted to hand the singer a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it. The friendship bracelets have become a big part of Swift’s tour experiences, and refer to a lyric from her song “You’re On Your Own Kid,” in which she sings “make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it.”
Mama Kelce’s merch is now available for purchase here.
