Travis Kelce has hailed girlfriend Taylor Swift for being ‘as much of a professional as I’ve ever met’ as he prepares for the Chiefs’ Super Bowl matchup vs. the 49ers.
Swift, who’s expected to be in attendance on Sunday in Las Vegas, claimed two more Grammy Awards over the weekend – and Kelce remains hugely impressed with her achievements.
‘Well, she’s, she’s as much of a professional as anybody I’ve ever met and she just has a desire and a love for what she does,’ Kelce told reporters Tuesday.
‘You can tell in, how she creates things, how she, how she kind of like strategically goes about her career. You could tell she loves every single bit of it.
‘So I just take that and know that, you know, when I come into the building every single day and I show everybody how much I love it by how I work – that’s respected very much.’
Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift have been a public item since a September Chiefs game
Swift won two more Grammy Awards last weekend, bringing her total to 14
Swift has won 14 total Grammys in her music career, and announced her new album ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ on Sunday as she accepted her award for best pop vocal album.
She also has 11 No. 1 songs to date.
Kelce, meanwhile, is quite accomplished in his own field with two Super Bowl wins, the all-time postseason record for receptions and four first-team All-Pro selections.
He could add a third Super Bowl ring this weekend if the Chiefs can hold off the 49ers.
Speaking to reporters on Monday, Kelce said he’d heard some of Swift’s new album – calling it ‘unbelievable.’
Roger Goodell says Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s romance is a ‘positive’ for the NFL
‘I have heard some of it, yes, and it’s unbelievable,’ he said.
‘I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.’
While some NFL fans have been irked by Swift’s frequent presence on game broadcasts, league commissioner Roger Goodell believes the pop star’s involvement in the sport is a good thing.
‘Having the Taylor Swift effect is also a positive. Both Travis and Taylor are wonderful young people, they seem very happy,’ Goodell said.
‘She knows great entertainment and I think that’s why she loves NFL football. I think it’s great to have her a part of it. Obviously, it creates a buzz, another group of young fans. Particularly young women.’
