Kelce is celebrating his AFC championship win with his beau Taylor Swift.
During a pre-Super Bowl press conference on Friday, the 34-year-old player opened up about his sweet documented moment with the pop singer on the field after the Chiefs won.
Kelce told reporters after being asked about the post-game celebration, “It’s another memory in the journey that we get to cherish, man.” He added, “And I’m fortunate that I got all the support I need off the field,” adding, “And, you know, it gives me a reason to play that much harder on the field is the people you just mentioned.”
Kelce was heard telling Swift, “Tay, I’m gonna enjoy with the guys,” before kissing her and purring, “I love you.” Chiefs will be playing at the Super Bowl LVIII, where they’ll face off against the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.
A source close to Kelce told People Magazine that this past week’s victory was “the best night ever” for those involved. The “whole family was so, so excited and riding a high,” the insider said, noting that “phones were blowing up all night with congrats.” The insider furthered, “To be going to Vegas now is indescribable,” adding, “Having his family there, all his best friends and managers, and of course, Taylor, celebrating with him was very special.” The source continued to the outlet, “It’s obvious, isn’t it? They’re genuinely happy together,” adding, “She’s there to support him and cheer him on, and she’s fit in seamlessly with everyone he loves.”
According to several reports gathered by People Magazine, the 12-time Grammy winner has an Eras Tour stop in Tokyo on Feb. 10, the day before the Super Bowl, but the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C. notes that she could still “comfortably” make the trek. In a social media announcement, the embassy penned, “Despite the 12-hour flight and 17-hour time difference, the Embassy can confidently Speak Now to say that if she departs Tokyo in the evening after her concert, she should comfortably arrive in Las Vegas before the Super Bowl begins,” adding, “We know that many people in Japan are excited to experience Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, so we wanted to confirm that anyone concerned can be Fearless in knowing that this talented performer can wow Japanese audiences and still make it to Las Vegas to support the Chiefs when they take the field for the Super Bowl wearing Red.”
