Travis Kelce accidentally let slip his affectionate nickname for Taylor Swift during the latest episode of the “New Heights” podcast, which he co-hosts with his brother Jason Kelce.
The endearing revelation unfolded as Jason commended his 34-year-old sibling for achieving the title of the fastest tight end to reach 11,000 receiving yards last Sunday. Notably, Taylor Swift acknowledged Travis’ accomplishment by “liking” the Kansas City Chiefs’ Instagram post about it.
Expressing gratitude, the “Catching Kelce” alum affectionately said, “Thanks, Tay. I appreciate you on the Chiefs page supporting.”
When prodded about whether the pop sensation was previously invested in tight end stats, Travis coyly responded, “I don’t know if she’s a tight end fan or not. I’ll have to ask her.”
Although Travis didn’t delve further into details about his Grammy-winning girlfriend in that particular episode, he did share a heartwarming encounter with a young Taylor Swift fan during Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
While Travis doesn’t frequently discuss his relationship with the renowned songwriter, he mentioned to listeners in September that he intended to focus more on sports “moving forward” since “she’s not in the media as much.”
It’s evident that Travis would like to share more about his relationship with Taylor Swift, but he acknowledges the sensitivity of doing so in the midst of the NFL season, choosing to maintain a focus on football during this critical period.
