KANSAS CITY (BVM) — Sunday’s NFL matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears drew plenty of attention when Taylor Swift, one of the most popular musical artists in the world, attended the game and sat next to Donna Kelce, the mother of Travis and Jason Kelce.

Rumors surrounding Swift and Travis were sparked nearly two weeks ago and now they are all but confirmed.
Speculation also grew when Travis’ older brother, Jason, was asked about the potential relationship following a Thursday Night Football game.

“I don’t really know what’s going on there,” Jason said. “I know Trav is having fun and we will see whatever happens with whoever he ends up with.”
Even New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who attended Swift’s concert at Gillette Stadium in August, was asked about the duo’s potential relationship.
“Well, I would say that Travis Kelce has made a lot of big catches in his career. This would be the biggest,” Belichick told the Greg Hill Show.
Travis also helped the Chiefs improve to 2-1 with Swift in attendance and he recorded seven catches, 69 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Travis’ TD didn’t come until the third quarter and star quarterback Patrick Mahomes “felt a bit of pressure” to get him the ball.
“I heard that she was in the house,” Mahomes told Fox’s Erin Andrews in a postgame interview. “I felt a little bit of pressure … so I knew I had to get the ball to Travis … I think he wanted to get in the endzone as much as the Swifties wanted him to.”
Having both Patrick Mahomes and Taylor Swift on your side is such a blessing in life. Travis Kelce is one lucky human being. https://t.co/HDptYAgNnd
