Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce recently made headlines when he responded to pop superstar Taylor Swift’s engagement with a witty and good-natured comment.
Swift, who is known for her highly-publicized romantic relationships, recently announced her engagement to actor Joe Alwyn. The news was met with congratulations and well-wishes from fans and celebrities alike. However, one unexpected response came from Kelce, who playfully expressed his disappointment at the news.
The NFL star humorously tweeted, “There goes my shot…” in reference to Swift’s new relationship status. His lighthearted response sparked a flurry of reactions from fans and media outlets, with many applauding Kelce for his sense of humor and playful nature.
Kelce’s tweet comes on the heels of an earlier interaction with Swift after she offered to pay for the weddings of 13 fans in celebration of her 13th album, “Red (Taylor’s Version).” The free weddings, which Taylor Swift announced on social media, were set to take place at the famed Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas.
In response to Swift’s generous offer, Kelce teased that he had “got to go to Vegas” and “find a date.” The playful banter between the football star and the singer delighted both their fan bases and showcased a fun and friendly dynamic between the two.
While it’s unclear whether Kelce will actually tie the knot in Las Vegas, his good-humored response to Swift’s engagement has garnered attention and admiration from fans. It’s clear that Kelce’s charm and wit extend beyond the football field, and his playful interactions with Swift have only endeared him to a wider audience.
As Kelce continues to make headlines with his on-field performances and off-field antics, his social media exchanges with Taylor Swift serve as a reminder that even celebrities can have fun, light-hearted interactions with each other. And who knows, perhaps Kelce will have his chance at love and marriage yet, whether in Las Vegas or elsewhere.
Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s relationship is going from strength to strength with many claiming that an engagement is in their near future.
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end – who will face off against the San Francisco 49ers at Sunday’s Super Bowl – has now responded to claims he’s planning on popping the question if his team is crowned the champions.
During a press conference on Super Bowl ‘Opening Night’ at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Travis was asked by a reporter: “Is there going to be another ring beside the Super Bowl ring if you win this thing on Sunday?”
Travis was quick to respond, and with a smile on his face, he said: “I’m focused on getting this ring and that’s all my mind’s focused on right now.”
Should Travis decide to put a ring on Taylor’s finger, they will have the option of tying the knot Vegas-style after the Little White Wedding Chapel offered to throw them a ceremony – free of charge.
“Taylor and Travis – you two have enough on your plate so let us take care of you!” Little White Chapel wrote, according to TMZ.
“Taylor just bring your lucky, and fabulous Grammys gown and we can handle the rest! We have our florist on standby for the bouquet of your dreams, our ministers and Elvis are ready too. Whatever you want, our chapel is ready to take care of you!!” they added.
During the press conference, Travis also made sure to publicly congratulate his girlfriend after her historic win at the Grammys on February 4.
Taylor took home two awards, Best Pop Album and her fourth Album of the Year trophy, which makes her the only performer to win the award four times.
“She’s unbelievable,” he told reporters. “She’s re-writing the history books herself, and I told her I’d have to hold up my end of the bargain and come home with some hardware too.”
Travis and Taylor – who resumes her Eras tour in Japan on February 7 – began dating last summer after connecting following her July concert at Arrowhead Stadium, in Kansas City, where Travis plays for the Chiefs.
In stark contrast to her relationship of over six years with Joe Alwyn, Taylor and Travis have been incredibly public, with the Bejeweled singer attending 12 Chiefs games this season, and Travis using his bye week in October to fly to Argentina to watch her perform in South America.
Last month, the athlete gave a rare insight into their relationship at a press conference ahead of the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.
“As long as we’re happy, we can’t listen to anything that’s outside noise. That’s all that matters,” he said amid ongoing claims that Taylor is a distraction to his game.
“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 added.
“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.”
