Taylor Swift has reportedly received the “stamp of approval” from her reported new boyfriend Travis Kelce’s mother – who is said to “adore” the pop star.
The singer, 33, and the Kansas City tight end, also 33, have reportedly been dating for a few months, but have recently stepped up their public displays of affection, with Swift attending several of the NFL star’s matches.
Swift has also been spotted cheering on her new beau while sat next to his mother, Donna, in the crowd.
And according to DailyMail.com, Swift and Donna already have a “genuine affection for each other”.
A source told the publication: “Donna is a mom’s mom and only wants the best for her kids.
“She is enjoying all that is happening with her kids and the residual effect it has had on her life, she’s in her 70s and is just having fun seeing her kids do so well, being in commercials, and being the most beloved person in the Kelce family, especially during game days.
“And as the last several weeks have gone on with all that is happening with Taylor and her son, she thinks that Taylor is as lovely of a person as one could be. She wants Travis to be happy, and Taylor has been such an amazing person to Donna and they both have a genuine affection for each other.”
“Donna speaks very highly of Taylor and has given the stamp of approval to Travis when it comes to his pick on who to date. Donna is looking forward to getting to know Taylor more and more.”
It comes just hours after Swift was joined by a host of celebrity pals including Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Sophie Turner and Hugh Jackman to cheer on Kelce.
The singer brought along a star-studded entourage to cheer on the Kansas City Chiefs tight end at their match against the New York Jets at the MetLife stadium in New Jersey.
On Sunday night, the Cruel Summer singer was joined by Lively and her husband, Reynolds, plus Jackman, who recently split from his wife of almost three decades, Deborra-Lee Furness.

Turner – who recently announced her divorce from husband Joe Jonas – was also seen next to Swift in the VIP area. She is reportedly staying with Swift in New York as the former couple continue their messy custody battle.
Swift’s brother Austin, Lively’s sister, Robyn Lively, Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski, filmmaker Shawn Levy, and Taylor’s backup dancer, Melanie Nyema also joined the group.
Swift, 33, has been linked to Kelce, also 33, for the past few weeks – with fans going into meltdown when Swift was spotted sitting next to the NFL star’s mother last week at his game against the Chicago Bears in Kansas City.
The Grammy winner was spotted sitting next to the sportsman’s mother, Donna Kelce, while social media posts from the NFL and FOX show her getting into the game enthusiastically jumping and screaming along with the crowd.
Meanwhile, on Twitter a US journalist posted a short clip of Swift and Kelce together in the locker room. In the post, Swift is seen smiling as she walks alongside the star before later being spotted in his vintage car.
And last week, the player addressed his romance with Swift on his New Heights podcast, which he hosts with his older brother Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles.
His sibling bluntly asked in their latest podcast episode: “We’ve been avoiding this subject out of respect for your personal life – now we’ve got to talk about it.”
To which a smiling Travis replied: “My personal life that is not so personal. I did this to myself Jason, I know this.”
Jason pushed again, asking: “So Trav, how does it feel that Taylor Swift has finally put you on the map?”
Travis said with a laugh: “I just thought it was awesome how everybody in the suite [where Taylor watched] had nothing but great things to say about her.
“The friends and family. She looked amazing. Everybody was talking about her in great light and on top of that, the day went perfect for Chiefs fans of course. We script it all, ladies and gentlemen…
“It was definitely a game I’ll remember, that’s for damn sure. And then we just slid off in the getaway car at the end.”
