Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce confirmed their budding romance in September, when the singer showed up to support the Kansas City Chiefs tight end at a home game at Missouri’s Arrowhead Stadium. The move came months after Kelce first publicly expressed interest in Swift, after attending one of her concerts.
Ahead, see everything we know about their relationship so far.
January 26, 2024: Travis addresses dealing with public attention.
The tight end discussed how he and Swift are managing privacy with their relationship being in the public spotlight during a Chiefs press conference.
“As long as we’re happy, we can’t listen to anything that’s outside noise,” he said during the conference. “That’s all that matters.”
Kelce went on to acknowledge the attention he has received over the past year, crediting both Super Bowl LVII, during which he faced off and won against his brother and the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles, and his relationship with the pop superstar.
“I brought this upon myself, and I do enjoy having fun with it all, and the biggest thing is making sure my focus is right here in this building,” Kelce said.
“You hear the media throughout the year if we’re not having success, you know, maybe throw it out there that I wasn’t focused or that the team isn’t focused on certain things, and if you’re in this building, you know exactly what’s going on,” he continued. “So, you gotta compartmentalize what you’re hearing and make sure that you’re staying on task, and giving everybody in the building and on that team the right perception.”
January 24, 2024: Taylor supports Travis’s family.
The “Lover” singer subtly supports her man by liking an Instagram video from the latest episode of the New Heights podcast, which he hosts with brother Jason Kelce. In the clip, the brothers talk about how Jason celebrated Travis’s touchdown that Sunday, when the Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills 27–24, by taking off his shirt, jumping out of the VIP suite, and chugging a beer. It was Jason and wife Kylie Kelce’s first time meeting Swift, and Travis said “she absolutely loved” him.
Swift also likes a comment Kylie left on the podcast’s Instagram post. “‘I’m not asking for permission, I’m doing this.’ – the exact quote I will say when I’m grabbing the keys to go get a cat,” Kylie wrote, citing what Jason reportedly told her before taking off his shirt in the stadium.
January 21, 2024: Travis flashes Taylor a hand heart at his game.
Swift attends the AFC divisional playoff game between the Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, New York, and is seen cheering from a VIP box. There, she is joined by Brittany Mahomes and Jason and Kylie Kelce.

An insider for People reveals that the couple is “really happy” together.
“They’re having a lot of fun, but they’re still seeing where it goes,” the source adds.
The update comes about a week after rumors emerge that Swift and Kelce are planning to get engaged this year—claims several outlets have since debunked.
January 13, 2024: Taylor sports a custom Chiefs jacket at Travis’s playoff game.
Swift attends the Chiefs playoff game against the Miami Dolphins in a custom red puffer jacket emblazoned with Kelce’s name and jersey number, 87, all over it in white and yellow text, along with the words “Chiefs Kingdom” and NFL logos. The one-of-a-kind creation was designed by Kristin Juszczyk, who is married to San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle.
The singer celebrated Kansas City’s 26–7 win sitting beside Kelce’s mom, Donna, and Brittany Mahomes, who wore her own custom coat. After the game, she exited Arrowhead Stadium walking hand in hand with the tight end.

Swift closes out 2023 and welcomes 2024 with Kelce.
Swift attends the Chiefs game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Arrowhead, sporting a white varsity jacket with black leather sleeves, “Chiefs” emblazoned in big red letters across the back, and Kansas City patches all over. The jacket happens to look identical to the outerwear Kelce had on after his Christmas Day game, but Swift’s has one unique detail that makes it all her own: Kelce’s nickname for her, “Tay,” stitched in black cursive letters on the sleeve.
Later, the couple count down to 2024 and celebrate with a passionate kiss at a private party in the Kansas City area with family and friends. Their NYE smooch is captured by @krystenrachelle and later reposted by @mustlikeme4me.
