Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are spending a little time apart after their brief Australian reunion. Still, new details about their relationship’s beginning have surfaced in the Kansas City Chiefs’ post-season. Team defensive coach, Dave Merritt, spoke this week on The Sports Shop With Reese and K-Mac about how Swift secretly visited Kelce at football stadiums before the world knew of their relationship.

“When she started to come around, it was privately,” Merritt said. “She was coming into the stadiums without people really knowing until the camera put a big spotlight on her. But upon meeting her, I felt like that she actually added to what it was we were trying to do because there were so many people that were hating the fact that she was being shown on TV. [But for her], you know what? You’re part of our family because you’re now with Travis. So therefore, you’re our little sister...you’re part of the family. So what happened was she actually affected the team in a positive way. It wasn’t a negative way. It was everybody was excited that Travis was happy. So when my player, my brother, is happy beside me, that helps me and that encourages me and so Travis came in there a different man. So, she helped us.”

Swift spoke herself to Time about how she and Kelce got to know each other privately before she went to one of his games in September.

“This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast [in July with his Eras concert phone number friendship bracelet story], which I thought was metal as hell,” she said. “We started hanging out right after that. So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other. By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”
