Travis Kelce’s Mom Donna Says He ‘Embraces’ Taylor Swift’s Fame and ‘Loves the Attention’

Travis Kelce’s mother thinks her son will be just fine as his high-profile romance with Taylor Swift continues to make headlines.

“He loves the attention,” Donna Kelce told “Good Morning America” viewers Monday, noting that the athlete “embraces” fame “as much” as he can.

“I think attention is only part of the whole thing. Obviously, [she] is a megastar,” she added.

“As long as he can handle it, I have no problem with it,” the 71-year-old continued, going on to call Swift, 33, “a very nice person.”

Donna, who joked elsewhere in the interview that the audience must be “tired of [her] family,” previously said that getting to know the Grammy winner was “OK.”

The matriarch tried to avoid “talking[ing] about it” on the “Today” show in October, but ultimately said meeting the singer was “just another thing that energized my life.”

Travis, 34, has been romantically involved with Swift since September, with the close couple detailing how their relationship began in a WSJ. Magazine cover story, published Monday.

Even though the Kansas City Chiefs player admitted Swift would ‘hate it’ [him] for saying that,” he described having “someone playing Cupid” and convincing the pop star to contact him.

“There were definitely people that she knew who knew who I was, in her corner,” the “Catching Kelce” alum said. “She told me exactly what was going on and how I was lucky enough to convince her to contact me.”

“I think attention is only part of the whole thing,” she added. “Obviously, [Swift] is a megastar.

When Swift first supported Travis at an NFL game in September, he called her “brave” and praised the impression she made on his friends and family members.

Earlier this month, he interrupted his trip to Argentina to see her play an Eras tour show.

The former reality star expressed “shock” that Swift changed her lyrics to “Karma” to honor “the Chiefs guy” and called her stage presence “electric.”

Although the songwriter was scheduled to attend Travis’ game against Jason’s team, the Philadelphia Eagles, his Saturday concert in Brazil was postponed until Monday night due to extreme heat, which led to the death of ‘a spectator.

Travis gave him a “shout out” before the performances.
