On Wednesday’s episode of the New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce podcast, Travis then thanked “Tay,” as he called her, for the love.“You might not care about records but you know who does, a 92 percent-er by the name of Taylor Swift. That’s right. She liked an Instagram announcement from the Chiefs about you breaking this record,” Jason, 35, told his brother on the episode.
“Alright now. Thanks, Tay,” Travis replied as Jason added, “Gotta love the support.”As things heat up between the couple, a source told PEOPLE that Travis’ friends think the relationship is the “real deal.”“They’re still a little shocked by all of it — that he’s dating the Taylor Swift, but they’ve seen how down to earth she is with his friends and family,” an insider close to the athlete said.
