Contrary to the diva image often associated with celebrities, Taylor Swift has a genuine and humble character, which was picked up on by the NFL star's father.
Travis Kelce's budding romance with pop sensation Taylor Swift has been making headlines recently. As the NFL star and the Grammy-winning singer's relationship continues to capture the public's attention, Ed Kelce, Travis's father, has opened up about his impressions of Taylor Swift in two separate interviews. In his conversations with TODAY and PEOPLE, Ed spoke highly about Taylor, pointing out her down-to-earth personality. He also spoke about an experience he had with the artist which is etched onto his brain.
Ed's first interaction with Taylor Swift happened during one of his son's games. Taylor frequently attends Kansas City Chiefs games, showing her support for Travis's squad. When Ed spoke to PEOPLE, he stated on record that he admired Taylor. He said that she was "a very, very sweet, very charming, down-to-earth young woman." He also said that she's not only quite intelligent but also very genuine. According to him, her intelligence was quite evident from their first meeting itself.
He shared a story which according to him, captured Taylor's spirit. He recalled how they were sitting in a suite during a game when Swift got up to get a drink. What was extraordinary about this moment was that Swift began picking up empty bottles, cans and plates that were scattered around the suite.
In his own words, "I'll tell you something very special that I noticed about Taylor the first time I met her. We're sitting in the suite, she gets up and in the front room, she gets up to go get a drink or something and she starts picking up empty bottles, cans and plates that are scattered around. Because in the suites everybody gets stuff and you empty it down wherever you can." This act of humility and consideration was unexpected from one of the world's biggest music stars and it left a profound impact on Ed.
Ed Kelce humorously pointed out that Taylor Swift seemed to have missed the memo about being a diva or a spoiled musician. Her genuine and humble behavior contradicted the stereotypes often associated with high-profile celebrities. Ed remarked, "And I'm just thinking, I don't think she got the diva memo. She didn't get the spoiled musician. She doesn't know how to pull that off. And that, to me, said a whole lot." However, Ed wasn't the only Kelce that Taylor hung out with. She also interacted at length with Travis's mother, Donna Kelce. They have both had the pleasure of conversing with the chart-topping artist during games. Donna Kelce, appearing on the 3rd Hour of TODAY, revealed that they were merely chatting about commercial breaks when the cameras focused on them during a Chiefs game.
Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have become closer during the games they have attended. They've been seen cuddling and having moments together. There was a particularly cute one when Swift kissed Travis on the cheek. Fans and the media have been closely monitoring this budding romance, keenly following their journey. While this probable love story moves forward, one can only hope that Ed and Donna continue to think all things great for this pop star. From the looks of it so far, Ed definitely thinks highly of the singer and her genuine nature.
