Travis Kelce FINALLY opens up on his love life with ‘hilarious’ Taylor Swift… from first dates in New York to drunkenly singing ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ together… and how his friends begged him: ‘Don’t f*** this up!’
Travis Kelce has revealed his whirlwind romance with Taylor Swift and how his relationship with the pop star changed his life.
The two-time Super Bowl winner NFL star has reached a whole new level of fame since he started dating Swift this year, and things became official when she first showed up at Arrowhead Stadium in late September to propose to him encourage. .
In conversation with the Wall Street JournamagazineKelce revealed that someone on Swift’s team helped set it up after he opened up about his failed attempt to give her his number after her Eras show in Kansas City.
“There were definitely people she knew who knew who I was, in her corner [who said]: Yo! Did you know he was coming? I had someone who played Cupid,” Kelce said.
It didn’t take long for them to arrange a first date, but even for Kelce, who usually exudes confidence on the football field, there were still some nerves.

Kelce describes Swift as “hilarious” and “a genius” and says her intellect is “damn amazing.”
Kelce describes the build-up as “Everyone around me is telling me ‘don’t screw this up’, and I’m sitting here saying ‘yeah, got it’
“When I met her in New York, we had already talked a little bit, so I knew we could have a nice dinner and a conversation, and whatever comes from there will continue from there.”
He said he worried about making a misstep in those early days: “That was the biggest thing for me: make sure I don’t say anything that would push Taylor away.”
But they clearly hit it off and Kelce describes Swift as “hilarious” and a “genius.”
“To be with her and see how smart Taylor is was fucking amazing. “I’m learning every day,” he said.
Kelce also said he and Taylor sang “Teenage Dirtbag” together at a late-night party at his Kansas City home.
“There was definitely some wine involved,” he said.
Kelce also admitted that Swift’s fame has inevitably had an impact on his own life.

“I’ve obviously never dated someone who had that kind of charisma… ‘I’ve never had to deal with it,’” Kelce says. ‘But at the same time I don’t run away from it.
“The criticism she gets, how much she carries a magnifying glass with her every day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she’s just living and enjoying life. If she’s acting like this, I better not be the one acting so strangely.”
Tonight, Kelce’s parents are expected to meet Taylor’s for the first time when he plays for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles – the team Swift and her father support.
Taylor has met Travis’ mother Donna and father Ed – the first time she was at a Chiefs game, she was in the family suite with Donna.
Weeks later, Donna was on the TODAY show asking about her son’s relationship with Swift when, in an attempt to downplay the attention, she simply said:
Taylor won’t be there – a rescheduled Eras date in Brazil prevents her from reaching Kansas City for the match.
But reports Monday morning suggested both families will spend Thanksgiving together in Kansas City.
