It’ll be anything but a cruel summer for Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce.

Swift has been a constant presence at Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs football games over the last few months — and now that he’s a Super Bowl champion (again!), the star athlete is ready to return the favor as Swift hits the road on tour.

“They are making plans for the summer and are excited to travel together in Europe when Taylor takes her tour there,” a source says in this week's PEOPLE cover story.

Swift, 34, kicked off a new international leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour on Feb. 7, performing four back-to-back shows in Tokyo just days after becoming the first person to ever win album of the year for a fourth time at the Grammys.

On Friday, she’ll play her first of seven shows in Australia and will eventually make her way to Singapore in early March. Then, in May, the star will kick off a long string of European dates in Paris — and will stick around the continent for more than four dozen shows through August.

A source close to the Kelce family says that Kelce, 34, is ready to spend time in the offseason supporting his superstar girlfriend, just like she did at 13 games over his season.

“Football is everything to him. He lives and breathes it. But he’s ready for some downtime now and to show up for Taylor the way she has for him,” the insider says. “The attention on them is definitely a lot, but Travis has done a great job deflecting and focusing on what’s important.”

The pair will also head into the offseason with the full support of Kelce's inner circle, the insider adds.

"Everyone is so happy for Travis and the whole family. He really is feeling on top of the world," the source says. "His family is beyond supportive, and they're just along for the ride with him and to be there for him. They all love Taylor and see how happy she makes him."

Swift attended her first Chiefs game in late September, and Kelce later revealed that the pair had actually known one another for about a month at that point. In November, he supported her, jetting out to Argentina to watch another Eras Tour date in Buenos Aires with her dad Scott.

On Feb. 11, Swift was in the stands when he and his Chiefs teammates beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, securing their third victory in five seasons.

“It was unbelievable,” Swift was heard telling Kelce as she headed down to the field to celebrate with a post-game kiss and hug. “That was the craziest thing I’ve ever experienced.”

The Super Bowl win was the cherry on top of an already impressive week for the pair, as Swift took home a pair of Grammy Awards on Feb. 4 and also announced her new album, The Tortured Poets Department, will be released on April 19.

“Man, [we're] on top of the world right now, baby,” Kelce said at a post-game press conference when asked about his and Swift’s status as a power couple. “It’s a good feeling.”
