Patrick Mahomes’ mom joins Taylor Swift fan club with selfies amid Travis Kelce romance


There’s no age limit on being a Swiftie.  Consider the mother of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes a member of the Taylor Swift fan club after bonding Sunday in a suite at Arrowhead Stadium as Kansas City hosted the Chargers.  On Tuesday, Randi Mahomes posted selfies on Instagram that she took on Sunday with Swift, who’s dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

The Mahomes family was well-represented at the game, with Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany, brother Jackson and sister Mia also in attendance.

In particular, Swift was praised by Randi Mahomes for “how sweet” she was toward 12-year-old Mia, People reported.  Swift meanwhile appears to have taken a liking to Brittany Mahomes as the two already have their own celebratory handshake.


The 12-time Grammy Award winner also has a fan in Ed Kelce, Travis’ father.  Ed Kelce called Swift “America’s girl” in an interview with People.  The Kelce patriarch also said that he’s trying to get to know Swift better by going back and listening to interviews she’s done over the years “because it gives you a sense of what a person is like.”

In particular, Kelce referenced a commencement address at NYU and said the clip “just confirms my initial impression of her,” calling Swift “a very, very sweet, very charming, down-to-earth young woman.”


Kelce was spotted talking with Swift on Thursday, Oct. 12, when both were in a suite at Arrowhead Stadium to watch the Chiefs host the Broncos.  According to Kelce, Swift made quite the first impression, calling the 33-year-old pop star “very genuine” and “very smart.”

“We’re sitting in the suite, she gets up and in the front room, she gets up to go get a drink or something and she starts picking up empty bottles, cans, plates that are scattered around. Because in the suites everybody gets stuff and you empty it down wherever you can,” Kelce said.  “And I’m just thinking, I don’t think she got the diva memo. She didn’t get the spoiled musician. She doesn’t know how to pull that off. And that really to me said a whole lot.”


During last week’s installment of his “New Heights” podcast, Travis Kelce and his brother, Eagles center Jason Kelce, explained why they were nervous for Swift’s one-on-one with their father.  “If you were watching the game you saw something momentous happen, which was Taylor Swift talking to Ed Kelce,” Jason said.

“Yeah, Taylor talking to dad, you already know, you know dad like I know dad,” Travis quipped, to which Jason added: “Which is he shouldn’t be talking to Taylor Swift.”


The All-Pro center couldn’t contain his laughter, while Travis continued: “This is a terrifying conversation and I felt terrible for Taylor for being in this.”  Terrifying is how NFL defenses could describe facing Travis Kelce and the Chiefs when Swift is in attendance.  Swift has taken in four of the Chiefs’ last five games, all Kansas City wins.


According to CBS, Kelce performs better when playing in front of Swift.  Kelce has averaged 46.5 yards per game on days that the “Anti-Hero” singer isn’t in the stands.  When she’s on hand, Kelce’s yards-per-game average jumps to 108.

That number was boosted Sunday by his 12-reception, 179-yard performance in the Chiefs’ 31-17 win over the Chargers.  Swift and Kelce left Arrowhead Stadium hand in hand before the pop star was seen publicly kissing the tight end for the first time.
