Travis Kelce Opens Up About His Budding Romance as He Discusses Initial Meet With Taylor Swift
Travis Kelce is spilling the beans about his budding romance with Taylor Swift. In a recent interview, Kelce appeared for the Wall Street Journal magazine’s December/January cover story. The 34-year-old NFL player left no stone unturned as he dived into the origin of his love story with the Anti-Hero hitmaker during a conversation with the interviewer.
According to Kelce, there were insiders in Swift's circle who were instrumental in sparking their connection. Some well-placed individuals in her corner apparently tipped him off, playing the role of Cupid. Kelce recounted, “There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was in her corner [who said]: Yo! 'Did you know he was coming?' I had somebody playing Cupid." He went on to reveal that members of the Swift family also played a part in catching her attention. During one of Swift's visits to Arrowhead, they strategically placed her in the spacious locker room, where Kelce's little cousins were busy taking pictures in front of his locker.
Kelce didn't shy away from sharing the nerves and excitement surrounding their initial meeting. "When I met her in New York, we had already kind of been talking, so I knew we could have a nice dinner and, like, a conversation, and what goes from there will go from there," he candidly admitted. "I’ve never dealt with it, but at the same time, I’m not running away from any of it," he said, acknowledging the constant paparazzi attention and the magnifying glass on Swift's every move.

Her family does a lot of stuff in terms of the tour, the marketing, being around, so I think she has a lot of those values as well, which is right up my alley," he explained.
