Travis Kelce reacts to being called Taylor's boyfriend

Taylor Swift has seemingly confirmed her new relationship with Travis Kelce in new photos.

By now, it’s not surprising the Grammy winner, 33, and NFL star, 34, were photographed together as the two have starred in many paparazzi pictures since speculation of their romance began on 24 September. However, newly released images show the couple getting cosy at Kelce’s Sunday night after-party this past weekend.

In pictures uploaded to Instagram by Chariah Gordon, the partner of Kelce’s teammate Mecole Hardman Jr, Swift could be seen standing next to the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end, reaching to kiss his cheek. In the photo, all four wore smiles as they posed together, with Swift appearing happy as she kissed Kelce and placed a hand on his chest.

The “Anti-Hero” singer had attended the Chiefs game earlier, watching as Kelce and his team defeated the Los Angeles Chargers. Promptly after the match, the professional athlete was spotted escorting Swift out of Arrowhead Stadium, helping her into a Rolls Royce, and leaving to go back to his newly purchased $6m pad for a post-game celebration.

Swift donned a short-sleeved Chiefs T-shirt, a black pleated mini-skirt, Nike kicks, and her classic red lip. Meanwhile, Kelce wore a plaid red and yellow button-down with embroidered khaki pants.

Enamored fans rushed to the comments section of the Instagram post to highlight their love for the duo.

“Now this is iconic,” one person wrote, while another said: “Awww, they make a good-looking couple.”

“Before the haters show up. I love this! I love them together and they look so happy,” someone else noted..

Other kind fans hinted at their infatuation with Swift and Kelce with a nod to a popular trend on TikTok.

“MY ROMAN EMPIRE,” an excited fan exclaimed, referencing the fad of calling anything you think of at least once a day “your roman empire”.

If the kiss between Kelce and Swift wasn’t sweet enough, the football star had the most adorable reaction to a fan calling him Swift’s boyfriend.

One fan at Sunday’s game caught the moment on film and shared it on TikTok. The footage shows Kelce waiting by the elevator as fans bombarded him with enthusiastic cheers. Through the noise, a single fan’s remark could be heard.

“Let’s go Taylor’s boyfriend!” the individual shouted. Hearing that, Kelce threw his fist in the air and sported a sneaky smile before stepping into the elevator.

The post, which has now received over 143,000 views, left supporters pleased to say the least. “Best response ever!” one individual wrote.

During the 22 October game, Swift sat in the VIP section alongside Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ wife, Brittany Mahomes. What’s more, the “Enchanted” vocalist sported a dainty bracelet with the number “87” on it, Kelce’s jersey number.
