Leave it to the world’s most famous women to arrange a clandestine rendezvous just when the world has its eyes fixed on her. Taylor Swift celebrated Travis Kelce’s birthday over the weekend.
The “August” singer flew from Nashville, Tennessee to Kansas City, Missouri, arriving on Friday, the day after the NFL star turned 34. They decided to have a relaxed evening before Swift seemingly headed back home in time for Kelce’s game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, according to US Weekly.
Notably, the Grammy-winning artist was absent from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis this time, even though she had cheered for her new beau at his two previous games. Nevertheless, Kelce continued to contribute to the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory, believing that his blossoming romance with Swift had brought him good luck.
For some fans who have been closely following their whirlwind relationship, Swift’s absence from Kelce’s birthday celebration was unexpected.
On Thursday, the football player was seen enjoying a low-key dinner with friends at the Golden Ox steakhouse in Kansas City. Despite their physical separation, Swift remained on his mind during a post-practice press conference the next day.
When questioned about his relationship with the music sensation, Kelce told reporters, “It feels like I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl, and right now I’m even more on top of the world.”
He also admitted that he’s learning to cope with the increased media and paparazzi attention. “It comes with it. You’ve got a lot of people that care about Taylor, and for good reason,” he stated. “You just gotta keep living and learning and enjoying the moments.”
A recent insider revealed that Kelce and Swift’s romance is gradually growing more serious. “They talk every day,” a source informed Us Weekly. “Taylor’s really enjoying getting to know Travis. They’re taking it day by day, but she has high hopes.”
The source also mentioned that the “Anti-Hero” singer has made the decision not to hide her relationship anymore, in contrast to her ultra-private six-year association with ex Joe Alwyn.
Swift sparked dating speculation with the “Catching Kelce” alumnus last month after he openly admitted he was disappointed that she didn’t communicate before or after her shows. This admission was made on his “New Heights” podcast after he failed to give her a friendship bracelet with his number at her Eras Tour concert in July.
In the midst of all the buzz surrounding their connection, Kelce has pledged to keep his personal life more private “moving forward.”
Is there anyone out there who’s getting weary of all this Kelce-Swift coverage?
