The second-long clip shows Swift cradling Kelce’s face in her hands as the Kansas City Chiefs tight end leans in for a kiss. The scene appears to be a New Year’s Eve party, with the “Cruel Summer” singer sporting an updo and a sparkly dress, while Kelce wears an all-black outfit.
Earlier on New Year’s Eve, the “Anti-Hero” singer cheered on her boyfriend as the Chiefs took on the Cincinnati Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium. She also supported Kelce at his Christmas Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
The couple’s New Year’s kiss brings their whirlwind 2023 to a close — a year that saw both record-breaking success for Swift and the birth of a romance that has captivated the world.
Swift and Kelce have come a long way since the football player first attended her Kansas City Eras Tour stop last summer. In her December TIME Person of the Year profile, Swift revealed how their romance began, saying, “By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”
As Kelce spends the next month helping his team fight for a spot in the Super Bowl, Swift will be prepping for the grand return of her Eras Tour. She’s set to play four consecutive nights at the Tokyo Dome in Japan from Feb. 7 to 10. Those four shows preview an entire calendar year of touring for the Grammy-winning singer; the 2024 Eras Tour shows will visit Australia, Europe and North America, and feature opening acts such as Sabrina Carpenter, Paramore and Gracie Abrams.
In 2023, Taylor Swift reigned as Billboard’s No. 1 artist of the year. Her Midnights (No. 2) and Lover (No. 9) albums both ranked among the ten biggest Billboard 200 albums of 2023, while her “Anti-Hero” ranked as the No. 4 biggest Hot 100 song of that year.
