It has been the love story that’s captivated the world, and while it might have seen its Hollywood ending at Sunday night’s Super Bowl, we have a feeling this is only the beginning for Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's relationship.
On Sunday night, Swift cheered on as she saw her boyfriend and his team the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl LVIII win against the San Francisco 49ers, following an epic game which saw the Chiefs scrape a victory with 25-22 overtime, in one of the most dramatic endings in NFL history.
Not only has Swift won the title as ‘the most supportive partner’ in our eyes, attending an astonishing 18 matches in total during the season amid a demanding Eras Tour, she also travelled across the globe from Tokyo, Japan to make it back in time for her beau’s triumphant victory. (Oh, and wait until you read all about her Easter egg-filled Super Bowl outfit here).
During the match, Swift looked on nervously as her partner competed in the game, and was even seen taking a shot when she featured on the big screen in the stadium with friends Ice Spice and Blake Lively.
To celebrate the Chiefs' win, Swift joined the players’ partners, family, and friends on the pitch and was seen stealing a Hollywood moment kiss with her partner, hands planted firmly around his face as they embraced following the game.
So what’s next for the couple?
Following the match (and what is expected to have been one hell of a party), the Chiefs will now attend a victory parade on Wednesday in Kansas City. While it’s expected the couple will celebrate at the parade together – it is Valentine’s Day after all – Swift will need to fly to Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia by Friday to perform that evening.
‘After the Super Bowl, Travis will be joining Taylor on her tour and traveling with her,’ US Weekly quoted an unnamed source as revealing, referring to the singer’s Eras Tour, which commences again on Friday, February 16. ‘They are happy and looking forward to spending more time together,’ the anonymous source added. However, this has not yet been confirmed by neither Taylor nor Travis' teams.
After the singer finishes her tour in Melbourne, she will then carry on the Eras pandemonium in Asia, Europe and the UK, before finishing with dates in the US in the autumn, and ticking it all off in British Columbia on December 8.
As for Kelce, he will already have returned to work this summer and being the 2024 NFL season in September. Presuming the couple are in this for the long-haul, it’s expected Swift will be a regular at Kelce’s matches moving forward.
The NFL will undoubtedly be happy with such a union, given that her attendance at matches has reportedly persuaded more young women to watch the games, and boosted the brand value of the NFL and the Chiefs by $331m (£260 million). ‘Sales of Kelce's Chiefs replica jersey exploded, seeing a 400% spike, external after she first attended one of his games,’ reports the BBC.
