After winning the AFC Championship, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce expressed his love for girlfriend Taylor Swift in a clip that circulated on social media. Kelce, addressing Swift on the field after the victory, said, “Tay, I’m gonna enjoy with the guys. I love you,” before sharing a kiss. Swift responded by whispering something in Kelce’s ear, and the public display of affection delighted her fans, known as the Swifties.
Taylor Swift was previously in a low-key relationship with actor Joe Alwyn for six years before amicably parting ways in April. The former couple rarely discussed each other in public. In contrast, Kelce and Swift have been more open about their relationship. Kelce, cohosting the podcast “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce” with his brother, shared that he attempted to get his phone number to Swift via friendship bracelets available at her concerts. Swift confirmed to Time Magazine that they began hanging out shortly after that and were a couple by September when she was spotted cheering him on at one of his games.
As the Kansas City Chiefs advance to compete against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII on February 11 in Las Vegas, the public acknowledgment of affection from Kelce to Swift has added a sweet touch to their relationship.
