Since her highly publicized breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, the world has been waiting to see who pop superstar Taylor Swift would settle down with next.

Over the last few months, a romantic spark between her and Kansas City Chief’s tight-end Travis Kelce has been all that Taylor Swift’s fandom can talk about.

Many have wondered exactly how the pair met, especially considering their mutually busy schedules, and now Travis Kelce has revealed a few facts about how the romance first began to blossom.

Travis Kelce Tries To Meet Taylor Swift

Sitting down with WSJ Magazine (via People) for their upcoming issue, the 34-year-old top NFL player opened up about how “lucky” he was that Taylor Swift reached out to him in the first place.

Essentially, the pair’s story begins back in July when Travis Kelce found himself amidst thousands of fans at one of Taylor Swift’s stops on her sold-out Eras Tour.

While he was hoping to shake hands with her there and meet face to face, that isn’t exactly how things went down, with the duo not crossing paths following Swift’s performance.

Taylor Swift Called Him

But, Travis Kelce had some solid connections of his own – a few guardian angels, or “cupid” as he calls them, whispering in Taylor Swift’s ear about his attendance at the concert.

While he kept the names of his helpers out of his interview, Kelce did spill the tea that Swift’s cousins were also pushing to ensure that a meetup would happen.

Finally, Kelce says, his number was dialed by Swift who said that he was incredibly “lucky” for his support system who tirelessly pushed her “to reach out.”

Taking Taylor Swift Out To Dinner

Speaking about the future couple’s first date, Travis Kelce said that he traveled to New York to take Taylor Swift out to dinner. He mentioned that they had already hit it off, chatting over the phone, so he tried to not put too much pressure on the situation.

Kelce commented, “What goes from there will go from there.”

Clearly, the connection was enough to warrant a second, third, fourth, and more dates as the pair are officially a couple just a few months down the line.

Handling The Spotlight

One thing that Taylor Swift’s dedicated fandom has praised her new beau for is his ability to handle the spotlight.

Seeing as how the singer is one of the most famous people in the world, Travis Kelce has needed to tackle the never-ending stream of paparazzi and fans.

In his interview, Kelce said that none of this bothered him, also praising Taylor Swift for the way she handles each situation with grace. 

Enjoying Life

Complimenting her ability to face the multitude of camera flashes and adoring fans with nothing but appreciation, Travis Kelce says that Taylor Swift is always “just living, enjoying life.”

Understanding that this is all part of what it means to be dating the famed singer, he says “I better not be the one acting all strange” when it comes to the pressures of everyday life.

Now that the couple is official, with a reference to Travis Kelce making its way into one of Taylor Swift’s performances on the Eras Tour, Kelce has gained an entirely new set of fans.

Since the pair were first spotted together, sales of the footballer’s jerseys have skyrocketed, with Swift’s fans eager to support her newest romance. At the very least, we’re bound to get another album inspired by Swift’s new flame.
