Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was among the family and friends who hung out with Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce during their viral night out.

And during a press conference on Wednesday, Mahomes, 28, was asked if he met Swift, 33, during the post-game celebrations after the Chiefs' 41-10 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

"Yeah, I met her," Mahomes told reporters. "She's really cool, good people."

The superstar quarterback (and one of Kelce's best friends) then went on to reiterate the tight end's plans to keep the rumored romance private.

"But like Trav said, man, I'm going to let them have their privacy and just keep it moving," Mahomes added, referring to Kelce's comments on Wednesday about the future of his and Swift's relationship.

Immediately following the game, Mahomes said he hadn't met her yet but had been informed "at the last minute" by Kelce that she'd be in attendance before the game kicked off.

“There’s things with Trav where he kind of just says it and you don’t know if it’s true or not,” the Chiefs quarterback said Sunday, according to KCTV5’s Jared Koller. “It was like Friday and he was just like, ‘Oh yeah, I think she’s coming to the game.’ ”

Kelce talked about his night with Swift for the first time Wednesday in a new episode of his weekly podcast New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce Presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment, saying, "I’m enjoying life and I sure as hell enjoyed this weekend."

"Shout out to Taylor for pulling up. That was pretty ballsy," Travis said as he talked to his brother and co-host, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, about how he felt having the singer in his suite during the "exciting game."

"I just thought it was awesome how everybody in the suite had nothing but great things to say about her — the friends and family. She looked amazing and everybody was talking about her in great light," he said, adding that the cherry on top was that "the day went perfect for Chiefs fans of course," noting their 31-point win over the Chicago Bears.

The Chiefs tight end also shared more about the events that took place after the game, as he and Swift were spotted driving away from Arrowhead Stadium in his 1970 Chevelle 408 Stroker convertible.

"And then we just slid off in the getaway car at the end," he said, seemingly a nod to a song off Swift's Reputation. "Took my Chevelle to the game. Shout out to Taylor for coming through and seeing me rock the stage."
