Travis Kelce looked less-than-enthusiastic about celebrating his 34th birthday in Kansas City without new girlfriend Taylor Swift, but quickly perked up upon getting a photo request from a young female admirer.
Kelce took time to have his picture taken with the blonde woman outside Kansas City’s Golden Ox, where the two-time Super Bowl winner enjoyed a night out with friends on Thursday – two days before traveling to Minneapolis for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
The identity of the blonde fan on Kelce’s arm is unknown and the Chiefs tight end was apparently just being gracious with local supporters, several of whom had their pictures taken with him.
It is unknown if Swift will be in the house at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Chiefs are 2-0 with the pop star in attendance since she began dating Kelce last month. Swift was on hand for the Chiefs’ 41-10 victory over the Bears on September 24, when she was seen celebrating Kelce’s touchdown reception with his mother, Donna. She and Donna were again seated near each other in a luxury suite for last Sunday’s 23-20 win over New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.
But when asked on Friday’s Today Show about the opportunity to sit with a world-famous celebrity for her son’s football games, Donna gave the impression she was unimpressed with meeting Swift.

‘Yeah, it’s – you know, it is fairly new, so I don’t like to talk about it,’ Donna said of her introduction to Swift. ‘It’s just one of those things where, you know, obviously everybody saw me… I was in the boxes with her. And, yeah, it’s just, you know, another thing that’s amped up my life.’
‘What was she like?’ NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked. ‘I mean, so you got to know her a little bit. Got to sit with her a couple games. How was it?’
But Donna seemingly wasn’t in the mood to be pressed, and simply quipped: ‘It was okay.’
Travis Kelce, on the other hand, seems absolutely thrilled to be spending time with Swift, saying the new romance has left him happier than when he won the Super Bowl earlier this yea.
The Chiefs star spoke to media on Friday afternoon and was asked about how his state of mind is with so much more attention fixed on his every move.
‘As all the attention comes, it feels like, you know – I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl and right now even more on top of the world now,’ he said.
‘You have got a lot of people that care about Taylor, for good reason. Got to keep living and learning and enjoying the moments.
‘We’re learning with the paparazzi taking photos all over the place but it comes with it.’
Kelce also insisted the newfound attention will not distract him from football.
‘I’ve always been pretty good at compartmentalizing and being able to stay focused din this building,’ he said. ‘I will just keep rolling with that man.

His quickly developing romance with Taylor Swift has captured national headlines

‘Everybody is having fun with it, whether I think they are overdoing it or not. I know I brought this to myself and I’m fortunate enough to have fun with it. All that really matters is that it isn’t p***ing anyone off, over here at least.’
Kelce had earlier this week appeared reluctant to go into too much detail on things between himself and the pop star.
In the latest episode of his New Heights podcast – which he co-hosts with his brother Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles – he criticized the NFL for the amount of attention it was giving Swift when she was at his games.
NBC cut to Swift 17 times during Sunday’s game, to which Kelce said: ‘Damn, that’s crazy. That’s like once a drive. Mom told me everyone was enjoying themselves.’
