Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has recently begun dating acclaimed singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, and the singer has been spotted at a number of his games this football season. Kelce has been praised for maintaining a balance between the duo’s public and private lives amid their burgeoning relationship, offering brief glimpses on his “New Heights” podcast he shares with his brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce.
This week, Kelce recounted Swift’s experience meeting his father in the VIP box of his most recent game. The brothers joked about their father’s conversational skills and interesting choices of storytelling. Kelce joked “I felt terrible for her,” as he explained his father’s rambling way of explaining himself. Travis Kelce went on to clarify that despite their jokes about him, both brothers feel that Ed Kelce is “the best dad in the world.”
After seeing the broadcast footage, Kelce observed that it appeared his father had a positive conversation with Swift, and even confirmed that he started listening to more of her music amid her new relationship with his son. Jason Kelce joked that the NFL brothers’ father probably went to the local library to gather Swift’s CD’s to burn onto his laptop, a technology not used since the early aughts.
Miss Americana And The NFL Prince
The couple were recently spotted in New York City making cameo appearances on Saturday Night Live. Swift appeared to announce her friend and collaborator Ice Spice‘s performance, and Kelce made a guest appearance in host and comedian Pete Davidson‘s skit about the Swift-Kelce phenomenon. The pair were seen attending the SNL after party together, and spending time in the city last weekend.
The pair first united when a few months ago, his home stadium of Arrowhead was converted to a concert venue in the city for Swift’s tour, and the singer left a lasting impression on the NFL tight end. The Kelce brothers recounted Travis becoming enchanted with Swift, and getting creative with trying to get her attention. The NFL star admitted that he attempted to hand Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.
Needless to say, the friendship bracelet began as a fumble, but Kelce wound up being the mastermind that caught Swift’s attention.
Social Media Reactions
Fans of the Kelce brothers’ long running podcast continue to tune in now that they occasionally address Travis’ high-profile relationship with Swift. The brothers have additionally begun explaining football terminology in one segment, so as to be inclusive towards Swift’s young fans eager to learn more about the sport amid the burgeoning relationship.
