Swifties, watch out! It looks like pop icon Taylor Swift has found new happiness with Travis Kelce. Here’s what you need to know as a true fan of the Kansas City Chiefs NFL star.
Rumors are currently swirling about the relationship status of Taylor Swift (33 years old) and NFL star Travis Kelce (34 years old). After the singer was in the stands several times at professional football matches, the two were seen holding hands while visiting restaurants in New York. They both also appeared as guests on the TV show “Saturday Night Live” separately on the same evening.
At least in public, the two no longer hide their love for each other. However, there has been no official confirmation of their relationship yet. Here’s what Taylor Swift fans need to know about their icon’s potential new partner.
Travis Kelce is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs football team. The team is the reigning Super Bowl champion. Kelce is one of the best tight ends in the NFL. He celebrated his major league debut in 2014. He has already been to the Super Bowl three times with the Kansas City Chiefs – the Chiefs winning in 2020 and 2023. However, in 2021, they lost to the team of Gisele Bündchen’s (43 years old) former partner Tom Brady (46 years old), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The football star from Ohio State was born on October 5, 1989 in Westlake. His brother Jason Kelce (35 years old) is also a professional footballer and plays as a center for the Philadelphia Eagles. The brothers have a podcast together called New Heights. In fact, it’s all about football and NFL topics, but the rumors surrounding Taylor Swift were also discussed. If a relationship with Taylor Swift becomes serious, she could appear as a guest on the podcast in the future. Jason’s wife Kylie Kelsey also appeared on the show in a full episode.
What is certain is that Taylor Swift has already met Kelsey’s mother. Along with Donna Kelce, she cheered on the Kansas City Chiefs from the stands at Arrowhead Stadium. In the “New Heigts”-Podcast-Episode sagte Travis posted: “I have a lot of love, we are in the suite where the best thing is, this is your friend and family. This is fun to share with everyone. Your presence.” All three games the singer has attended so far have ended in victory for the Chiefs – and their player’s new love seems to be bringing luck to the team.
Kelce’s best friend and teammate Patrick Mahomes, 28, said in an interview after the win over the Bears at the end of September that he was looking forward to getting to know Taylor Swift. The 33-year-old was spotted on the field alongside his wife, Brittany Mahomes (28). At the beginning of October, Swift brought her famous friends Blake Lively, 36, Ryan Reynolds, 46, Hugh Jackman, 55, and Sophie Turner, 27, to a game.
While Taylor Swift is considered one of the most successful artists of our time and enjoys great success with her albums and concerts, Travis Kelce’s commitment and wealth are also impressive. The footballer has already been available as the face of several well-known brands – including Nike, T-Mobile and McDonalds.
In recent years, he has also founded several of his own companies as a founder or partner. His companies include a cereal brand called Kelce’s Krunch and a fashion brand called Tru Kolors. His current contract with the Kansas City Chiefs runs through 2024, and his football salary until then is approximately US$57.25 million (about €54 million).
From 2017 to 2022, Travis Kelce was in a relationship with sports journalist Kayla Nicholl. The two are said to have been in an on-and-off relationship for five years. In addition to her work as a journalist, Nicole is also active as a model and ambassador for several fashion brands. She also runs a fitness brand called Strong Is sexy. The two are said to have met via Instagram.
Before dating Kaia Nicole, the athlete dated TV personality Maya Bunbury for a few months in 2016. She won the reality dating show Catching Kelce. In the TV series, currently available on Amazon Prime, the football player searches for the woman of his dreams from among 50 women, “Bachelorette” style.
