It seems that Travis Kelce’s friends and family have nothing but good things to say about Taylor Swift, despite all the hate she gets from NFL fans.
Kelce’s teammate, Kansas City Chiefs Safety Justin Reid, is the latest person to give Swift praise. He told TMZ Sports that he fully supports Kelce and Swift’s relationship, even though people gripe about her getting so much media attention.
Reid said Taylor Swift is a genuinely nice person, and she deserves respect. “She’s very, very sweet,” he shared. “…I don’t understand why she’s getting all the hate. She’s an awesome person, awesome artist all around.”
When asked if Swift would give the Chiefs a private concert if they managed to win the Super Bowl for a second year in a row, he laughed and said it’s unlikely. “I’m sure she’ll be busy celebrating with her man,” he said.
Patrick Mahomes’ Dad Says Taylor Swift is ‘a Normal Person’
Patrick Mahomes’ dad, former pro baseball player Pat Mahomes, also opened up about meeting Taylor Swift. He was equally impressed by her. Pat, his wife, and his daughter have had the opportunity to sit with Swift at games.
“She’s down to earth,” he shared with Starcade Media. “I actually walked up and introduced myself to her, and she said that she knew who I was because she had watched [Netflix’s] Quarterback series.”
Taylor Swift happily posed for a picture with him and his family during their first meeting. Because Pat considers Travis Kelce a son, he’s gotten to know Swift over the months.
“So I mean, she was genuine,” he added. “Every time I’ve hung out with her, she just acts like a normal person.”
The Grammy winner has been dedicated to becoming a true part of Kelce’s life. She’s also formed a tight friendship with Patrick Mahomes’ wife, Brittany, she makes it a point to get to know all the wives and girlfriends of the other Chiefs players, and she’s become close with Kelce’s family.
