Why Taylor swift Mom is skeptical and afraid about Travis Kelce Romance with daughter Taylor


Travis Kelce’s mom is still processing the rapid uptick in attention she’s received since her NFL star son reportedly began seeing global pop icon Taylor Swift.


“It’s really morphed into something I could’ve never expected,” Donna Kelce told Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie on Friday’s episode of Today. “It’s kind of crazy, but you just treat everybody with respect and kindness, and they return it to me.”

The cohosts probed Donna on the Kansas City Chiefs player’s rumored romantic ties to Swift after she was photographed hanging out with Donna at a recent football game, but she refused to address it outright, calling the entanglement “too new” for her to talk about.

She did, however, discuss her feelings on the media frenzy surrounding her son.

“Every week it’s like something new. Like, really? I feel like I’m in some kind of an alternate universe,” she said. “It’s really strange. But it’s fun— it’s a great ride. At times it gets a little annoying, but most of the time people are just so sweet, so kind, so generous. What mother doesn’t want to hear that their kids are great?”

When pressed further on her feelings about Swift, Donna hilariously summed up her game-watching experience with the singer by telling the TV personalities, “It was okay.”

After Kotb and Guthrie asked if Travis warned her not to talk about Swift on the show, Donna clarified.

“It’s not so much a warning,” she replied. “It’s his personal life. I’ll talk about my life and when the kids were little and I was with them, but they’re men now, they’ve got their own lives, and there isn’t a man alive that’s going to talk to their mom about their personal life.”

After rumors swirled about his reported involvement with Swift, Travis briefly spoke about it on the Sept. 27 episode of his New Heights podcast.

“You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take, baby,” he said. “What’s real is that it is my personal life. I want to respect both of our lives. I’m enjoying life and I sure as hell enjoyed this weekend. So, everything moving forward, I think me talking about sports and saying ‘alright now’ will have to be kind of where I keep it.”
