Patrick “Pat” Mahomes Sr. is singing Taylor Swift's praises.

During an interview with Kansas City outlet Starcade Media, the father of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was asked about the "phenomenon" that is Taylor Swift amid the singer's relationship with tight end Travis Kelce.

"She’s down to earth," Mahomes Sr. told the outlet.

He continued, "I actually walked up and introduced myself to her, and she said she knew who I was because she had watched the Quarterback series," referring to the Netflix docuseries that followed his son and two other NFL quarterbacks during the 2022-23 season.

Mahomes Sr. called Swift, 34, "down to earth" a second time when talking about the "Karma" singer, and told the hosts that Swift took photos with his daughters.

"Every time I've hung out with her, she just acts like a normal person," Mahomes Sr. added.

The quarterback's mother, Randi Mahomes, who split from his father in 2006, praised Swift's kindness since the singer became a regular at Chiefs games.

In October, Randi shared photos on Instagram of her youngest child Mia, Patrick's half-sister, and the “Delicate” songstress posing during the Chiefs' game against the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium.

“I love how sweet Taylor was to my girl!!” Randi wrote, adding the “girl power” hashtag to the post.

On Saturday, Brittany, 28, and Swift were spotted sporting matching Kristin Juszczyk-designed red puffer jackets to represent their NFL star beaus.

A day after the Chiefs defeated the Dolphins, Brittany posted more photos from game day with Swift as they seemingly celebrated their guys' 26-7 victory. In one photo, Swift wraps her arms around Brittany, likely to warm up a bit during one of the coldest games in NFL history.

“Twinning & Winning💯,” Brittany captioned the Instagram post.
