Travis Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, expressed his appreciation for girlfriend Taylor Swift for contributing to his fame. On a bonus episode of the “New Heights” podcast, Travis and his brother Jason Kelce proudly displayed artwork they received from fans. One caricature depicted the brothers hugging while wearing shirts with inside jokes. Travis’ shirt had the phrase “On the Map” and a picture of his face over a map of the US. The phrase has become a running joke on the internet regarding his increased popularity since dating Swift.
Travis commended the artist for the effort and jokingly mentioned that Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, wouldn’t celebrate either holiday depicted on the cartoon. Travis attributed his popularity to Swift and gave her a shoutout on the podcast.
The couple’s relationship began when Travis attended Swift’s Eras Tour in Kansas City. Travis had expressed his disappointment for not being able to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it. However, the two eventually connected and Swift attended her first Chiefs game this fall. She has since supported Travis at four NFL games and even met his parents.
Travis has also spent time getting to know Swift’s dad, Scott Swift. The pair met earlier this month in Buenos Aires and bonded over dinner before attending the pop star’s concert. Travis and Scott watched the performance from the VIP tent, and Scott, an avid Eagles fan, even wore a Chiefs lanyard.
The Eagles and Chiefs are set to face off in a rematch of the 2023 Super Bowl. While it’s unclear if Taylor will attend, a source revealed that her parents will be present. The insider explained that since Taylor and Travis have introduced their parents to each other, it’s important for their families to blend seamlessly as their relationship becomes more serious. Taylor, who will be performing in Brazil, will try to make it to the game as it’s essential for her to be there when their parents meet.
