Travis Kelce remains the second favorite son in the eyes of his beloved mother, Donna Kelce, who playfully asserted her preference on her sons’ podcast, “New Heights.”
Appearing on the podcast hosted by Travis and Jason Kelce, Donna humorously informed the Kansas City Chiefs tight end that he hasn’t secured the top spot in her heart — “yet.”
In response, the 34-year-old NFL star jokingly expressed his dismay, saying, “Ugh, the burn!”
Although Donna, 71, assured Travis and Jason that she loves them both equally, Travis acknowledged that he understands why his older brother, Jason, holds the primary position.
Entertainment Tonight previously reported that ahead of Super Bowl LVII, where the Kelce brothers faced off, Donna admitted favoring Jason because he has given her grandchildren. Travis, who is currently childless, teased on a February 9 episode of “New Heights” that he needs to “find a breeder” to have kids so that his mother can “love [him] again.”
Since then, Travis has entered a “serious” relationship with Taylor Swift, leading to speculation about a potential family in their future.
In contrast, Jason shares three daughters with his wife, Kylie Kelce: Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 2, and Bennett, who turns 1 in February. Donna recently expressed her joy over her granddaughters in an interview with Us Weekly, emphasizing her desire to be actively involved in their lives and value their time together.
Known as “Mama Kelce,” Donna has always been a supportive presence on the sidelines for her sons. She gained additional attention ahead of this year’s Super Bowl, and Swifties were delighted to see her interacting with Grammy winner Taylor Swift at some of Travis’ games earlier in the NFL season.
