Travis Kelce’s dad, Ed Kelce, has nothing but rave reviews for the Super Bowl champ’s new lover, Taylor Swift.
The elder Kelce seems to have been enchanted the meet the “Lover” singer, 33, whom he described to People as “a very, very sweet, very charming, down-to-earth young woman.”
Kelce recalled something “very special” he noticed upon meeting Swift in the Arrowhead Stadium suite at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Oct. 12 game — one of four the team has won with Swift cheering them on.
“We’re sitting in the suite … she gets up to go get a drink or something and she starts picking up empty bottles, cans, plates that are scattered around. Because in the suites everybody gets stuff and you empty it down wherever you can,” recalled Ed.
“I’m just thinking, I don’t think she got the diva memo. She didn’t get the spoiled musician. She doesn’t know how to pull that off. And that really to me said a whole lot.”
He also noted that Swift is “very smart. I mean, very. That comes through right away.”
Travis’ brother Jason, who plays center for the Philadelphia Eagles, also spoke Sunday on the budding love story. Jason, 35, told NBC Sports that while he’s “happy” for his younger brother, he’s a bit concerned about the inordinate amount of attention he’s receiving and hopes it doesn’t become “a threat to his safety.”
Last week, news broke that Travis Kelce had just closed on a nearly $6 million Kansas mansion he purchased in part to score some more private time with Swift.
Within days, sources let slip that friends of the stars believe them to already be “in love.”
“It’s going so well because it’s easy and nothing is complicated,” an insider told Us Weekly of the couple.
