Kansas City Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce and singer Taylor Swift are undoubtedly the hottest celebrity couple at the moment.
Day in, day out, their relationship remains in the spotlight. Media houses, fans and entertainment lovers at large keep tabs on this very relationship.
Despite the involvement of numerous online in-laws, the relationship continues to wax strong.
Now, Travis has opened up about when he and Taylor Swift love story started.
According to the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, they had already been getting to know each other weeks before she attended his one of his games.
The 34-year-old said, “We had known each other for close to a month up to that point.”
Three days before Swift attended the Chiefs-Bears game, Kelce revealed that he “threw the ball in her court” and had invited her to see him play. According to him, he had already known she would go see him play when he said that on the show.
“It wasn’t just an out-of-the-blue, ‘Hey, come to the game,'” Kelce said. Since that first appearance, Swift has attended 12 of Kelce’s games.
“I love it when Taylor comes and support me, and enjoys the game with the fam and friends. It’s been nothing but a wonderful year, man,” he told McAfee.
Although the attention their relationship has brought him is “brand new,” he said it’s something he’s having fun with.
“You know, it’s been a crazy, crazy ride that I could have never anticipated,but I’m having fun with it. The majority of the world is having fun with it, outside all the cranky NFL fans that just don’t want to see the Chiefs win.”
Rumors of a romance between the two sparked after Kelce attended the singers Era’s Tour at Arrowhead Stadium.
That day, he attempted to give her his number but failed.
“If you’re up on Taylor Swift concerts, there are friendship bracelets, and I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it,” he recalled to his brother Jason on their podcast in July.
Kelce said he was “a little butthurt” to have not had the chance to give her the personalized bracelet due to her being busy prepping 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 that she sings,” he told his older brother.
