Travis Kelce is more than just a football player!

The record-breaking tight end might be known for his skills on the field, but he's also a loving family man, former SNL host and red-carpet favorite.

From his dance moves in the end zone to the sweet bond with his brother, here are some of the most lovable things about the NFL star.

He's the "Absolute Best" Uncle

While Travis has yet to have any children of his own, according to his sister-in-law, Kylie Kelce, he is the "absolute best" uncle to her and Jason Kelce's little girls.

"It's very funny, Jason said in an interview that he thinks [the girls] might like [Travis] more than they like Jason," Kylie, who welcomed the couple's third daughter Bennett Llewellyn in February 2023, said of her brother-in-law. "He is like the absolute best uncle you can imagine."

He's Multi-Talented

Travis' athleticism doesn't stop on the gridiron. In June 2023, he teamed up with quarterback Patrick Mahomes to face off against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in Capital One's The Match. The Kansas City Chiefs teammates ultimately beat the NBA stars, per Sports Illustrated.

He Loves His Mom

The Kelce brothers' mom, Donna, rose to fame leading up to the 2023 Super Bowl when her two sons became the first brothers to ever go head to head at a Super Bowl.

For many big events over the past several months, Travis has been sure that mom is by his side. During Travis' Kelce Jam music festival in April 2023, Donna came on stage with her son in a coordinated denim look and busted out a few dance moves.

"Listen, she would get me. She would get me," Kelce told PEOPLE when sharing that his mom could beat him in a dance battle. "You throw on some B-52's, you'll see my mom start to go crazy."

He Hosted 'SNL'

Following his 2023 Super Bowl win, Travis added to his resumé of accomplishments by hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live. He was joined by Kelsea Ballerini as the musical guest and his parents and brother (pictured above) were in attendance to show their support.

Travis and Mahomes have been teammates and close friends since the quarterback was first drafted to the Chiefs in 2017.

"He's just the life of the party," Mahomes has said of Kelce. "He makes every single person feel like they're the most important person in the world. He has that natural gift to really embrace and show love to everybody."

He Loves His Hometown

When throwing out the first pitch during the home opener for the Cleveland Guardians in April 2023, the Cleveland Heights native repped his hometown under his Guardians' jersey in a T-shirt that read "I'm From Cleveland."

Travis has won the Super Bowl not once, but twice, alongside his teammate and friend, Mahomes. Here, the two celebrated their 2023 win with a parade in Kansas City, MO, where they greeted fans along the route and chugged beers.

He's a Red Carpet Favorite

While Travis is most known for his performance on the field, he's also walked his fair share of red carpets, including one of the most star-studded of the year: the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty.

He's Got Moves

Along with his football skills, Travis has also become known and loved for his dance moves — particularly the ones he busts out in the end zone to celebrate a touchdown.

He's a Loving Brother

And of course, fans have come to love watching the relationship between Travis and his older brother, Jason, on and off the field.

Though they play on different teams in the NFL, because the pair is just two years apart, they both played for the same college team when they suited up for the University of Cincinnati.

Despite wearing different colors on the field now, Travis revealed that his number, 87, pays tribute to his big bro's birth year.

"You're the only reason why I wear 87 anyways," Travis told Jason on the sidelines during a post-game exchange. "I never told you that, man. You started the legacy."

The two now also host a podcast together called, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, which debuted in September 2022.
