Travis Kelce finally revealed how he and Taylor Swift began their romance — and it wasn’t because of a friendship bracelet.
Although the Kansas City Chiefs tight end did try his best to get her attention during her performance at Arrowhead Stadium, Kelce ultimately made his affections known through someone in her inner circle.
“There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was, in her corner [who said]: ‘Yo! Did you know he was coming?’ I had somebody playing Cupid,” he told WSJ. Magazine in an interview published Monday.
Kelce, 34, wasn’t aware who the matchmaker was but realized his chances had changed when he looked down at his phone one day and saw a text.
He wasn’t aware at the time, however; the revelation only came later, after he looked down at his phone and saw Swift had texted him.
“[The Cupid] told me exactly what was going on and how I got lucky enough to get [Swift] to reach out,” he recalled.
The NFL star also said some of Swift’s family members helped him out without even realizing.
“She’ll probably hate me for saying this, but … when she came to Arrowhead [Stadium], they gave her the big locker room as a dressing room, and her little cousins were taking pictures … in front of my locker,” he spilled.
