Travis Kelce gave Taylor Swift a sweet shout-out following their on-the-field celebrations after the Kansas City Chiefs' AFC Championship win on Sunday.

On Wednesday's episode of New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, the tight end, 34, said to his brother, “Shoutout to Tay, thanks for joining the team," after Jason Kelce, 36, joked that Swift had "reached the Super Bowl in her rookie year."

"It was so fun seeing you guys afterwards hanging around to see us raise that Lamar Hunt trophy yet again," Travis said of the post-game celebrations on the field. Swift, Jason, and the brothers' parents, Ed and Donna Kelce, all joined him on the field to congratulate him — and he and the pop star shared several sweet moments together.

"We had the whole family down on the field," Jason recalled. "We had me, mom, dad and Taylor. Everybody was down there."

The Philadelphia Eagles center said it was "awesome" to see his brother and the Chiefs celebrate a well-earned win, and Travis also revealed his reaction to the moment that Swift and his coach Andy Reid shared while he was on stage riling up the crowd.

"That was a cool moment to see afterwards, I didn't get to see it ‘cause I was up on the stage screaming ‘Fight for your right.’ But that was a cool one," he said of the interaction between Reid, 65, and Swift captured by photographers. Reid found Swift in the crowd and pointed at her as the team celebrated its win, and she returned the gesture.

Travis later "liked" a post from ESPN on Instagram that captured Reid and Swift's exchange, with ESPN insider Jeff Darlington writing, "Andy Reid finds Taylor Swift in the crowd and points her way. Fun moment between the two."

Reid later shared more of his thoughts on the relationship as he appeared on Tuesday's episode of Tom Brady and Jim Gray's SiriusXM podcast Let's Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray.

Like Travis noted on New Heights, too, Reid knew Swift's dad — who the tight end called "Big Scott" — from their time at the University of Delaware.

"I knew her before, from Philadelphia," Reid said, before joking, "So that was the last thing Trav wanted to hear, that I knew her before him. She told him, ‘I know your coach.' And he went, ‘Oh, God, come on!’ "

The three-time Super Bowl winner said Swift is "a good girl" and he's "happy for Trav."

"And there has been no distraction that way at all," the coach continued. "Trav’s handled it right, she's handled it right and we just move forward. So it hasn't been a problem at all.”

Among the other sweet moments that Travis and Swift shared on the field at M&T Bank Stadium included several kisses and embraces, and the NFL star switched up his usual "Tay" nickname to call the singer "sweetie" in a video captured and circulated online.

"What's up sweetie," he said as Swift wrapped her arms around him.

"I've never seen anything like that in my life," she told him in another clip from the postgame celebration.

"It was insane, I can't believe that," she added of the Chiefs win over the Baltimore Ravens, 17-10.

Travis also shared a moment with his brother on the field, as Jason embraced the tight end and the two got emotional.

"I know it wasn't easy. I know it was a hard year. Finish it. Finish this motherf---er!" he told Travis, who replied, "F--- yeah, dog. Goddman, I love you. I love you, big dog."
