It has been revealed that Taylor Swift has a random connection to theKansas City Chiefs amid her rumoured romance with Travis Kelce. Andy Reid, the Missouri-based NFL team’s coach, has said that he knows Taylor’s father Scott Swift.
“I knew her from Philadelphia. Her dad was a big NFL fan,” the former Philadelphia Eagles coach claimed on Outkick’s latest The Five Spot episode.
“So I had met her when she was real young, and her dad,” the 65-year-old coach said, humorously talking about having “set Kelce up” with Taylor, who he referred to as a “good girl.” “We’re glad she’s here,” Reid said.
This is not the only connection between Taylor and the Chiefs. A family member of Kameron‘Kam’ Saunders, one of Taylor’s Eras Tour dancers, once played for the Chiefs. The family member, who is the performer’s younger brother Khalen Saunders, now plays for the New Orleans Saints. He reportedly won two Super Bowls with Travis as a defensive tackle for the Chiefs from 2019 to 2023.

Amid romance rumours, a source told the news outlet PEOPLE that Travis has never dated someone like Taylor.”Taylor’s unlike anyone Travis has dated before,” the source said. “It was very unexpected for his friends, but he’s so into her and very, very happy.”
“Some people thought he was just joking around about the bracelet and having a crush on her earlier this summer, but he was serious about it,” the insider added, referring to Travis trying to give Taylor his phone number when he attended her Eras tour at Arrowhead Stadium. The source added that Travis and Taylor are “having a great time getting to know one another” and “have introduced some of their friends to each other” recently.
