Travis Kelce Answers 1 Big Question About Taylor Swift’s Romance

Travis Kelce has set the record straight about exactly when he and Taylor Swift first met.

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs player and the Grammy-winning singer went public with their relationship after she was spotted watching one of his American football games in a private box.

After a game in September 2023, the pair were seen holding hands inside the stadium, although Travis has now revealed that their romance started long before that.

“We had known each other for almost a month at that point,” he said on Wednesday’s edition of The Pat McAfee Show.

We are happy for you my brother..

“It’s been a crazy journey that I never anticipated and I’m having a blast with it..

Prior to their first public appearance, Travis made no secret of his hopes of dating Taylor, having given her a shout-out on a podcast he co-hosts with his brother, fellow American football player Jason Kelce.

Taylor broke her silence about the relationship last year when she was interviewed for a Time magazine cover story.

“This all started when Travis very sweetly blew me away with his podcast, which I thought was very metal,” he recalled at the time.

“We started hanging out after that. So we actually had a lot of time that no one knew about, and I’m grateful that we got to know each other.

“When I watched that first game, we were already paired. I think some people thought they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to rock the boat on a first date.”

Next week, Travis and his teammates will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl, where Taylor is expected to appear.

This year’s Super Bowl will also see Usher perform at the Half-Time Show, following in the footsteps of recent artists like Rihanna, The Weeknd and Jennifer Lopez.
