Patrick Mahomes is cheer captain of Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s love story.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is sharing insight into his teammate’s romance, recalling when the singer and tight end decided their relationship no longer needed to be on the sidelines.
“He realized how cool of a person she was and she is,” Patrick said in a preview for a Dec. 25 episode of CBS Mornings. “So, for us, I mean, there were a couple of jokes here and there in the beginning, but she’s just part of Chiefs Kingdom now and she’s part of the team.”
And that team spirit extends to Patrick’s wife Brittany too, who even has a special handshake with the “Bad Blood” singer. “It’s cool that she’s embraced Brittany,” Patrick noted, “and they’ve built a friendship as well.”
But above all, the NFL star is simply happy for his teammate.
