The first meeting
This love story dates back to July 2023. The NFL star ha turned up for Taylor’s Eras Tour at Arrowhead Stadium.
The football star was seen watching the show from his private box. He also traded friendship bracelets with fans inside the venue.
Kelce had plans to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it, but they didn’t actually connect after the show.
“I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs she sings, so I was a little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,” Kelce explained on his podcast.
After the failed attempt, Kelce in November 2023, revealed that he got some help from people close to Swift to get her attention.
He said, “There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was, in her corner [who said]: Yo! Did you know he was coming? I had somebody playing Cupid.”
Kelce added that a few members of the Swift family even assisted in helping him get her attention. “She’ll probably hate me for saying this, but…when she came to Arrowhead, they gave her the big locker room as a dressing room, and her little cousins were taking pictures…in front of my locker,” he said.
The first date
Thanks to their “Cupid,” Swift did end up reaching out to Kelce and the rest became history.
“She told me exactly what was going on and how I got lucky enough to get her to reach out,” Kelce said.
After talking back and forth, the two met in person in New York. “I knew we could have a nice dinner and, like, a conversation, and what goes from there will go from there,” Kelce said of their first date.
Things went public when Travis turned up and cheered on Kelce at his Kanas City Chiefs football game at Arrowhead Stadium in September 2023.
Nevertheless, Swift revealed they were already a couple by that point.
She noted that they started hanging out right after “Travis very adorably put [her] on blast on his podcast,” which she joked was “metal as hell.”
“So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other,” Swift continued. “I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date,” Swift added.
