Kelce and his brother Jason Kelce addressed the moment in an episode of their “New Heights” Podcast.
“Yeah, no, I had no idea,” Kelce said when his brother asked him what it felt like to be “the Chiefs guy.”
“Well, I might have had a little idea, but definitely when I heard it come out of her mouth, it still surprised me. I was like, ‘oh, shh, she really just said that, okay,'” he said. .
The Chiefs tight end praised Swift.
“Taylor absolutely broke it, killed it,” he said. “And it looked like she was having fun up there.”
After the show, Swift surprised fans again when she was seen on camera. running into Kelce’s arms and kissing him as they walked backstage. Kelce and Swift have not directly confirmed their relationship, but they have been seen together, and Swift has attended several Chiefs games.
