During Game 1 of the World Series, a video of Travis Kelce grooving to Taylor Swift’s hit “Shake It Off” went viral. Despite the buzz surrounding their rumored romance, Taylor was not spotted in the stands with Travis, who was enthusiastically enjoying the Texas Rangers’ comeback victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Arlington.
Fueling the romance rumors, an insider told PEOPLE that Travis and Taylor are an unexpected but happy match. According to the source, “Taylor’s unlike anyone Travis has dated before.” Travis had playfully hinted at his attraction to Taylor earlier this summer when he attempted to give her his phone number at her Eras tour event at Arrowhead Stadium. However, it turns out he was quite serious about it. The source also mentioned that the two are thoroughly enjoying their time together, recently introducing some of their friends to each other. In the words of the insider, “Everyone’s getting along and seeing how much fun they have together. They make a very cute couple.”
Taylor Swift’s ties to the Kansas City Chiefs extend beyond her connection with Travis. Coach Andy Reid, who leads the NFL team based in Missouri, revealed that he had met Taylor and her father, Scott Swift, back when she was quite young. He humorously claimed to have “set Kelce up” with Taylor, referring to her as a “good girl” and expressing his delight in her presence.
Additionally, there’s another link between Taylor and the Chiefs. Kameron ‘Kam’ Saunders, one of Taylor’s Eras Tour dancers, has a family member who used to play for the Chiefs. His younger brother, Khalen Saunders, now plays for the New Orleans Saints but had previously won two Super Bowls with Travis as a defensive tackle for the Chiefs from 2019 to 2023.
