One by one, the pieces are coming together for a first meeting of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s families in Kansas City on Monday, a possibility that has grabbed so much attention you’d think world leaders were gathering here.
The latest clue: Kylie Kelce, wife of Travis’ brother, Jason Kelce, the center for the Philadelphia Eagles, is coming to Kansas City.
Her brother-in-law and the pop superstar are in the throes of a whirlwind romance that has unfolded at supersonic speed, even by Hollywood standards. Now boom, the parents and siblings and in-laws are involved.
ET reported this week their parents are expected to meet for the first time at the “Monday Night Football” game at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The rematch of this year’s Super Bowl pits brother against brother once again. The Chiefs beat the Eagles 38-35 in February.
Kylie will appear at a Stick With KC field hockey clinic Sunday morning at Go Ape! Zipline and Aventure Park in Swope Park. The two sessions appear to be sold out, according to Eventbrite ticket website.
The native of Philadelphia has built a fan base of her own through occasional appearances on the “New Heights” podcast hosted by the Kelce brothers, and her star turn in her husband’s documentary, “Kelce.”
The film debuted in September on Prime Video and quickly became the streamer’s most-watched documentary ever in the United States.
Last week, after Jason was named a finalist in People’s annual Sexiest Man Alive edition, Kylie warned women to stay away from the man she married in 2018. They have three daughters under the age of 4.
“I am almost six feet tall and I’m not thin,” she said on the podcast. “I will hold my ground. That’s mine.”
Donna Kelce’s presence at the game is guaranteed. She teamed up with Barefoot Wine, the official wine sponsor of the NFL, to host a contest that awarded the winner the chance to watch Monday’s game with her in a suite at Arrowhead. Wine will be served.
Before the game Monday, Mama Kelce is working a shift from 10 to 11 a.m. at the front counter and drive-thru at Raising Cane’s at 7501 W. 135th St. in Overland Park.
She and Ed Kelce, parents of Travis and Jason, have already met Swift and watched Chiefs games with her from an Arrowhead suite.
Swift’s father, Scott Swift, met Travis in Argentina last weekend, where they watched Swift’s Eras Tour concert together from a VIP tent on Saturday.
He and Swift’s mother, Andrea Swift, presumably have not met Kelce’s family, though.
Swift performs Sunday in Brazil, so she faces a quick flight to Kansas City if she plans to attend — easier for a superstar with a private jet.
If both families show up at Arrowhead Monday, Eagles fans will have a keen eye on her father. The longtime Philadelphia fan wore a red Chiefs lanyard at his daughter’s Saturday show, which displeased some of his fellow Philly fans.
On his latest “New Heights” podcast with his brother, Travis took some credit for that Chiefs gear: “I might have persuaded him at dinner the night before when I met him. Maybe, who knows?”
