American football player Travis Kelce (34 years old) and international artist Taylor Swift (33 years old) confirm their relationship! If in recent months there have been rumors and photographs in the press hinting that a love story is brewing between them, now the two stars have appeared in public together, holding hands.
Kelsey and Swift's first public appearance
Kelsey announced his interest in Taylor in July when he was seen publicly at one of his Eras Tour concerts in Kansas City, Missouri, where he also wanted to give her a small gift. “I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her performances because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” the athlete shared in a previous episode of his New Heights podcast.
“If you know about Taylor Swift concerts, there are friendship bracelets and I got a bunch of them while I was there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it... She's not dating anyone, or at least she didn't want to dating me, so I took it personally.” While Kelsey unfortunately wasn't able to give her a friendship bracelet on the show, they clearly managed to hit it off elsewhere.
And we say this for good reason, because in September, sources of The Messenger reported that they actually managed to communicate. “Taylor and Travis left quietly,” a source told the publication. “I saw him when he was in New York a few weeks ago.”
The athlete began to invite Swift to her matches and the artist not only agreed, but also sat in the box next to his mother at the first match. They later left the match together. According to ET, Kelsey then rented out an entire restaurant in Kansas City for himself, Swift, and his friends and family. “Travis rented the restaurant for his family and team. Taylor arrived in a denim dress and was seen grabbing a bite to eat, grabbing a few cocktails and dancing with Travis,” the source shared. “The two were very affectionate with each other, but everything was fun and easy. Travis' teammates also appeared at the event. after party, as well as his mom and dad, Donna and Ed. The party lasted until 2 am.”
From there, rumors continued to emerge that something was going on between them, and over the weekend the relationship was confirmed after they appeared in public together. They went to a restaurant in New York holding hands, a sign that they are a full-fledged couple.
“They support each other, even if they can’t always be together. They are very happy,” said a close relative of the couple, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
