Travis Kelce Reveals The Moment He Fell For Taylor Swift

“She really won me over.”

Just days after his surprise Eras Tour appearance, Travis Kelce got candid about his relationship with Taylor Swift. On the June 25 episode of the podcast Bussin’ With The Boys, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end revealed when he started to “fall” for his girlfriend, sharing that he was first attracted to the singer’s self-awareness.

“She’s very self-aware. I think that’s why I really started to really fall for her, was how genuine she is around friends [and] family,” Kelce said. “It can get crazy for somebody with that much attention. ... And she just keeps it so chill and so cool.”

The NFL star also revealed that Swift didn’t want to attract attention when she attended her first Kansas City Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears in September 2023, turning down his offer of extra security.

“She really won me over with that one,” Kelce continued, sharing that Swift just wanted to “be around family and friends, and experience this with everybody,” and even walked through the front door of the stadium.

The Chiefs star also discussed keeping their relationship private — they went public as a couple at a Saturday Night Live afterparty in October 2023. “Nobody knew what was going on. [It was] really all over the place,” he said. “I think it was... we kinda kept it between us as much we could. Once she came to a game, obviously it was all poppin’ from there.”

On the podcast, he confessed that while he prefers to “keep things private,” he’s “not here to hide anything.” He continued, “That’s my girl, that’s my lady. ... I’ve had fun with just about every aspect of it. It’s just when you’re at home you want privacy, and you don’t always get that.”

Travis & Taylor’s Romance

As mentioned, the couple began dating in September 2023, shortly after Kelce stopped by the Eras Tour at the Arrowhead Stadium, where he attempted to give Swift his phone number.

After confirming their relationship the following month, they’ve since made a string of public appearances together, from the 2024 Super Bowl to Swift’s recent Eras Tour show at London’s Wembley Stadium, at which Kelce joined the singer onstage.
