“Travis has always been Travis,” the Chiefs quarterback said. “He still will walk through the stadium and treat every single person like they’re his best friend.”
This time last year, Travis Kelce was hoping to make it to the Super Bowl. Today, he’s hoping for the same thing, but he also happens to be dating the most famous person in the world.
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end shot to global recognition in September when rumors began swirling that he and Taylor Swift were quietly dating.
Within a few weeks, Taylor was seated beside Travis’s mom at his football game in Kansas City and the rest is history.
But, despite shooting from football fame to worldwide fame within the span of a few weeks, it sounds like Travis is keeping his feet firmly on the ground.
During a press conference earlier this week, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sang Travis’s praises while being asked about the increased attention surrounding the team.
“Travis has always been Travis,” he told reporters, adding that his pal’s surge in popularity has been “cool to watch.”
“He has all that attention but he’s just been himself the whole time,” Patrick went on. “He’s still Travis Kelce.”
