Travis Kelce says his new romance with Taylor Swift has left him feeling happier than when he won the Super Bowl with his team earlier this year.
The Chiefs star spoke to the media on Friday afternoon and was asked what his state of mind is like now that he is paying so much attention to his every move.
“When all the attention comes, it feels like, you know, after the Super Bowl, I was on top of the world and now I’m even more on top of the world,” he said.
“There are a lot of people who care about Taylor for good reason. I have to keep living and learning and enjoying the moments.
“We’re learning while the paparazzi are taking pictures everywhere, but that’s part of it.”
Travis Kelce says he feels “on top of the world” – even more so than after the Super Bowl
His rapidly developing romance with Taylor Swift has made national headlines
Swift has made it to watch Kelce play in his last two games for the Chiefs, but no word yet on whether she will be there for Sunday’s game in Minnesota against the Vikings.
Kelce, who turned 34 this week, emphasized that the new attention will not distract him from football.
“I’ve always been pretty good at compartmentalizing and staying focused in this building. I’m just going to continue with that man.
“Everyone’s having fun, whether I think they’re overdoing it or not. I know I did this to myself and I’m lucky that I can have fun with it. All that really matters is that no one gets harassed here, at least here.”
Kelce seemed reluctant to go into too much detail about things between him and the pop star earlier this week.
In the latest episode of his New Heights podcast – which he co-hosts with his brother Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles – he criticized the NFL for the amount of attention Swift received when she attended his games.
NBC switched to Swift seventeen times during Sunday’s game, prompting Kelce to say, “Damn, that’s crazy.” That’s like driving once. Mom told me everyone had a good time.

Swift even traveled to New York to attend last Sunday’s Jets-Chiefs game at MetLife Stadium

‘They are not there to be thrown on television. You never know you might get caught throwing away a big old cheeseburger and you’ll look like an idiot.
“There are certain things you just don’t want on TV all the time.”
Swift attended the game in New York with some of her A-list friends, including Ryan Reynolds, his wife Blake Lively and Hugh Jackman.
Travis didn’t elaborate further on the Taylor links on his podcast — he and his brother repeatedly joked about how other celebrities were watching the match without ever mentioning her presence.
