Travis Kelce reveals nickname for Taylor Swift following NFL record

Travis Kelce let slip his nickname for Taylor Swift as he thanked the superstar for cheering on his new NFL record.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, shouted out the “Anti-Hero” singer for liking the team’s Instagram post on Sunday, which celebrated Kelce as the “fastest tight end to 11k receiving yards AND the only player in franchise history to do it.”

“Thanks, Tay. I appreciate you on the Chiefs page supporting,” the two-time Super Bowl champ said on the latest episode of his “New Heights” podcast, which he co-hosts with big brother Jason.

Asked by the Philadelphia Eagles center, 36, whether the Grammy winner has “always been a fan of tight end receiving yards,” Travis said he’d “have to ask her.”

Though fans previously speculated the lovers would spend Thanksgiving together, Swift has spent most of November in South America, where she launched the international leg of The Eras Tour with Kelce by her side.

Kelce confirmed last week that he would “be feasting on KFC because I won’t have anybody here” come Turkey Day.

However, since wrapping shows last weekend in Brazil, Swift is on hiatus until early February, when she starts the tour back up again in Tokyo. During her downtime, she and Kelce are “planning to spend more time together,” a source told Entertainment Tonight.

“Taylor and Travis are on the same page and have a lot in common,” said the insider. “Both are extremely close to their families and share morals and views on a lot of things.”
