Travis Kelce has opened up about his swift relationship with Taylor Swift and how being with the pop star has changed his life.
The NFL star, who won two Suρer Bowls with the Kansas City Chiefs, has become even more famous since he started dating Swift this year. In late September, she came to Arrowhead Stadium to cheer him on for the first time, making their relationship official.
It was J. R. Moehringer, who wrote Prince Harry’s autobiography Spare, who told Kelce about how someone on Swift’s team helped set them up after he told Moehringer about how he tried to give her his number after an Eras show in Kansas City but failed.
“For sure, she had people in her corner who knew who I was and told her, ‘Yo! Did you know he was going to come? Kelce said, “I had someone play Cupid.”
Not long after, they set up a first date. Kelce, who is usually very sure of himself on the football field, was nervous, though.
“When I met her in New York, we had already been talking a little, so I knew we could have a nice dinner and talk, and then you know what will happen.”
In the beginning, he was afraid of making a mistake: “That was the most important thing to me: make sure I don’t sаy anything that would push Taylor away.”
But it’s clear that they got along; Kelce calls Swift “hilarious” and a “genius.”
Kelce also said that he and Taylor sang “Teenage Dirtbag” together at a party at his Kansas City home late at night.
He joked, “There was definitely some wine involved.”
In addition, Kelce said that Swift’s fаme has had an effect on his own life, which he is getting used to.
“Of course I’ve never dated someone with that kind of aura… I’ve never dealt with it,” Kelce said. “But I’m also not running away from any of it.”
It’s like the paparazzi are always looking at her closely. Every day, they stand outside her house, outside every restaurant she visits, and outside every airport she lands in, and she’s just living her life. It would be rude of me to act weird when she does that.
Taylor’s parents are going to meet Kelce’s parents for the first time tonight when he plays for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles. Swift and her dad are fans of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Taylor has met Travis’s mom Donna and dad Ed. The first time she went to a Chiefs game, she sat in the family suite with Donna.
Soon after, Donna was on the TODAY show and was asked about her son’s relationship with Swift. To avoid drawing too much attention to himself, Swift just said that watching a game with her was “OK.”
