Erin Andrews experienced a sense of childlike excitement when she discovered that Taylor Swift was present at Sunday’s Chiefs game to show support for her rumored beau, Travis Kelce.
As she looked back on the day during the latest episode of her “Calm Down” podcast, which she co-hosts alongside Charissa Thompson, Andrews shared the moment when she received confirmation from Kelce while on the field before the game. Joining her on the podcast’s episode was her Fox NFL colleague, Greg Olsen.
“All of the sudden, Erin walked up and she’s like, ‘Guys, I just got a text from Z [their producer],’ and she’s like, ‘The word on the street is that Taylor Swift is here,’” Olsen, also a guest on the podcast. recalled.
The former NFL tight end, aged 38, approached Kelce while he was warming up and said, “‘Travis, once you’re finished with your football career, Erin Andrews needs to have a chat with you.'”
Erin Andrews went on to describe her enthusiastic reaction when she saw the shot of Taylor Swift in the luxury box.
“When he [Rich Russo] finally got the shot, Greg, I don’t know about you, but, when she finally sat in the seat I started screaming and talking back, ‘That’s her!’”
“Cause I saw the red lips and I was just like a 15-year-old,” Andrews said. “It was so exciting.”
Today, Erin proudly displayed her new shirt, which coincidentally featured a picture of Taylor in the skybox at Arrowhead Stadium.
Shortly after the game, footage surfaced of Kelce and Swift strolling together through the stadium hallways.
Later, they decided to extend their post-game celebration by heading to a local restaurant in Kansas City.
Swift and Kelce’s romantic connection was first reported earlier this month.
