Three-time Super Bowl winner Travis Kelce, currently in the spotlight for his relationship with Taylor Swift, has got serious game on and off the football field.

She’s cheer captain, and he’s celebrating another Super Bowl victory.

With girlfriend Taylor Swift watching proudly from a VIP suite alongside Ice Spice, Blake Lively, and Lana Del Rey, Travis Kelce helped the Kansas City Chiefs complete a thrilling comeback win in Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday. The superstar tight end caught nine passes for 93 yards, as Kansas City rallied from a 10-point deficit to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 25-22, in overtime.

Kelce and Swift, both 34, shared a kiss and long embrace on the field after the game before attending a private party at Resorts World Las Vegas. There, according to TMZ, they sang and danced to the singer’s 2008 smash hit “You Belong With Me.”

Kelce’s relationship with Swift was just one of the big storylines entering this year’s Super Bowl, which marked the third win in five years for the Chiefs. Since the two were first linked together this past September, entire legions of Swifties—including some who might have never followed football before—have been clamoring for more information about her love interest. They’ve learned that the Ohio-born Kelce has led an interesting and colorful life, even beyond his accomplishments on the field.

Here are 10 things you might not know about Kelce.

He faced his brother in the Super Bowl

Jason Kelce speaks with his brother, Travis, after Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023.

Travis’ brother Jason, 35, is a longtime center for the Eagles—though he is contemplating retirement—and the two faced off when Kansas City took on Philadelphia in Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023. It marked the first time two brothers had played against each other in the NFL’s championship game.

Travis emerged victorious as the Chiefs won the game, 38-35, marking his then-second Super Bowl victory. He previously won Super Bowl LIV with Kansas City three years earlier. Jason went out of his way to congratulate his brother immediately after the big game, offering three words: “F–– you, congratulations.”

He wears the number 87 because of his brother

 


Kelce’s jersey bears the number 87, which the tight end specifically chose in honor of his brother Jason, who was born in 1987. “If there is a Kelce legacy, two brothers making it to the NFL, it all started in 1987, because this big guy was born in 1987,” Kelce said of his older brother.

Jason has been influencing Travis’ career since their early days. Upon graduating from high school, Travis was being recruited to play football by several colleges, including Akron, Miami, and Eastern Michigan, but he chose the University of Cincinnati in part because his brother played there as well.

He considered playing professional baseball

 

Travis Kelce throws the first pitch at a Cleveland Guardians game in April 2023.
Kelce ran into some trouble during his college football career when he was suspended for the entire 2010 season at the University of Cincinnati after failing a drug test for marijuana. “I thought football was over for me,” said Kelce, who joined an Ohio baseball league and had excelled at the sport in high school. He even considered switching his professional focus to baseball.

His brother Jason, however, persuaded Travis not to give up on his football prospects and helped convince the Bearcats coaching staff to give his younger brother another shot. Jason also provided Travis with meals and a place to work out. “He knew exactly what I wanted to do in life,” Travis said of his brother.

Nobody pronounces his name correctly

 

Not even Kelce’s own family agrees on how to pronounce their last name. Almost everyone, including NFL broadcasters, says “Kell-see,” so Travis shocked the world when he revealed during a podcast interview that his real name is pronounced “Kell-ss.” Even his teammates were surprised; Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said Kelce “never corrected us once.”

Kelce later clarified that everyone on his father’s side of the family has long pronounced it “Kell-ss,” but Travis’ father “just kind of got lazy and didn’t really wanna keep correcting everybody that was calling him Kell-see, so he just went along with Kell-see.” Once Travis and his brother Jason became famous NFL stars, the Kell-see pronunciation stuck.

He had a short-lived reality dating show

Kelce starred in his own reality television series called Catching Kelce, which ran for a single season in 2016 on the E! network. Somewhat in the style of The Bachelor, multiple women competed for the NFL star’s heart, participating in group dates with him as one woman got eliminated each week. The winner at the end of the season got to date Kelce.

The victory went to Maya Benberry, and she and Kelce briefly continued dating after the show wrapped. They had split up by early 2017. Benberry later complained about her portrayal on the show, saying they “totally misrepresented my character.”

He called the mayor of Cincinnati a “jabroni”

 

Before the Chiefs faced the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC championship game in January 2023, Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval caught a little flack for trash talking Kansas City in a viral tweet. Among other remarks, he gloated about Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s 3-0 record against Mahomes and called the Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium “Burrowhead.”

So, immediately after Kansas City beat Cincinnati 23-20 to advance to the Super Bowl, a hyped up Kelce shouted to the cameras, “Burrowhead my ass, it’s Mahomes’ house!” In a later interview, Kelce yelled to Pureval, “Know your role, and shut your mouth, you jabroni,” echoing a famous catchphrase by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Pureval later admitted he “deserved that.”

He hosted Saturday Night Live

Kelce hosted the famous sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live on March 4, 2023. He is one of about three dozen professional athletes to step into the hosting role, with others including Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Deion Sanders, and Derek Jeter. Kelce was widely praised for his appearance, and former SNL cast member Carl Weathers compared his comedic abilities to those of retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

He took a knee with Colin Kaepernick

Former quarterback Colin Kaepernick ignited a firestorm when he took a knee during the national anthem at a preseason NFL game in 2016 in protest for police brutality and racial inequality in the United States. Kaepernick hasn’t played professionally since that year, and he later brought a lawsuit against NFL owners for allegedly colluding to keep him out of the league.

While Kaepernick’s protests cost him his career, many tend to forget that Kelce also took a knee during the national anthem protests, making him one of the highest-profile NFL players to do so. Kelce later expressed solidarity with his teammate Mahomes when the Kansas City quarterback spoke out against police brutality following the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

He has a successful podcast with his brother

Several years ago, Travis and Jason Kelce got dinner after a Chiefs game, along with Travis’ manager Aaron Eanes. The two brothers sat around the table for hours joking around and bantering about how to block different NFL defensive linemen. Eanes called it “the funniest s––t I ever heard,” and the brothers realized it could be a winning formula for a podcast.

In September 2022, that idea became reality when the Kelce brothers launched their podcast New Heights. The title references the Cleveland Heights area where they grew up. The show has proven to be a huge success, reaching No. 2 overall on Apple podcasts by February.

More recently, Travis has been known to offer glimpses into his relationship with Swift during their conversations.

He holds a ton of NFL records

Travis Kelce goes for a touchdown catch in a December 2017 game.
Kelce has had seven consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards, the most of any tight end in NFL history. He also holds the record for most receiving yards by a tight end in a single season, with 1,416 in 2020, and two years later, he reached 10,000 career receiving yards faster than any other tight end.

Kelce also holds the record for most receptions by an NFL tight end in his first 10 seasons, with 814 catches. He has caught 19 touchdown passes in playoff games, a record for the tight end position. The legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice, who had 22 postseason touchdown passes, is the only player at any position to surpass Kelce’s total.
