Some say that their mom, Donna Kelce, already won the 2023 Super Bowl (she says she’ll be rooting for offenses at all times, in case you were wondering). Here’s what to know about Jason and Travis.

Travis previously had his own reality dating show, Catching Kelce, on E! in 2016, in which 50 women from 50 states vied for the tight end’s love. He called the experience “awkward” in January 2023 during an episode of The Pivot Podcast.

Jason’s talents aren’t limited to the football field. He and his teammates recorded a Christmas album, A Philly Special Christmas, in 2022. The proceeds went to the Children's Crisis Treatment Center in Philadelphia for a toy drive.

Travis wears No. 87 for the Chiefs. His jersey number is a tribute to Jason, who was born in 1987. “If there is a Kelce legacy, two brothers making it to the NFL,” he said in an interview with NFL Films, “it all started in 1987 because this big guy was born in 1987.”

The brothers spoke about facing off in the Super Bowl on their podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce. “I feel like I've been getting asked this question for my entire career. ‘What would you feel if you played your brother in the Super Bowl?’” Travis remarked.
