According to Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift and he are ignoring “outside noise” as they manage their love story in the spotlight. During Friday’s Chiefs news conference, 34-year-old Kelce responded to inquiries on his growing celebrity and said that he and 34-year-old Swift had talked about the attention their romance has received.
A reporter explicitly questioned Kelce if he had discussed the subject with Swift, and the tight end replied that he had “talked about” maintaining privacy with the “Karma” singer. “As long as we’re happy, we can’t listen to anything that’s outside noise,” stated Kelce. “That’s all that matters.”
Speaking on the heightened attention he’s received over the past year, Kelce said he’d “be silly” to ignore it. He was talking about the famed 2023 “Kelce Bowl” between his Chiefs and his brother Jason Kelce’s Philadelphia Eagles, which his team won.
“I think the Super Bowl helped that, and obviously how I live my off-field life, definitely helps out,” he added.
Following the first-ever brother-on-brother Super Bowl match, Kelce’s mother, Donna Kelce, rose to fame among NFL fans and landed him a Saturday Night Live hosting slot.
Additionally, as a result of their association with Swift, Kelce and his family have gained a significant following of Swifties, who are huge fans of the 12-time Grammy winner.
As he faces criticism for engaging in a very visible romance amid a hectic NFL season, Kelce persisted in highlighting the “outside noise” from the media and fans, stating that it’s difficult “dealing with everyone else’s perspective of things.”

Since the singer went to her first Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium in September of last year, Kelce and Swift have been associated. She has consistently cheered for the NFL player throughout the season and spends time with his mother Donna.
In the AFC Championship on Sunday, Kelce and the Chiefs will play the Baltimore Ravens for a chance to play in Super Bowl LVIII, which will take place in Las Vegas on February 11.
