Travis Kelce Reveals How He Stays ‘Grounded’ amid Attention Around Taylor Swift Romance: ‘I’m So Grateful’



“I just want to be a genuine person,” the NFL star told ‘Good Morning America’

Travis Kelce has his feet on the floor, even amid his highly publicized whirlwind relationship with girlfriend Taylor Swift.

In a interview with ABC’s Good Morning America that aired on Thursday, June 6, the champion NFL star got candid about staying true to himself during the newfound worldwide attention — something he said he’s able to do by leaning on his loved ones.

“When you have good family and friends around you, it makes that aspect in life that much easier,” said Kelce, 34.

“I’ve always been a very grounded guy,” he said. “It might not come off like that when I’m playing football but off the field, I just want to be a genuine person. I try not to get too far down the road because you just never know when opportunities are going to present themselves.”

Asked by ABC correspondent Will Reeve to rate his life on a scale of 1-10, Kelce said “20? 100?”

“I’m so fortunate, so grateful of everything that come my way in life,” he said. “I feel like I’m on top of the mountain, even after winning the Super Bowl and having the off-season that I’m having.”

“Living the dream, baby,” he said.

Kelce, 34, and Swift, 34, first sparked dating rumors in September 2023 after Swift attended a handful of Kelce’s games.

While appearing on The Pat McAfee Show podcast, Kelce previously revealed that he invited Swift to attend one of his games, teasing that he “threw the ball in her court” after seeing her perform at Arrowhead Stadium during her Eras Tour in July 2023.


The two confirmed their romance in October 2023 when they stepped out holding hands at a Saturday Night Live afterparty. A source told PEOPLE at the time the pair were still in the “super, super early days” of getting to know one another but are “having fun.”

While doing press ahead of the 2024 Super Bowl, Kelce opened up about Swift and elaborated about what it’s like managing the extra media attention that comes from dating her. “You asked me how it is,” Kelce began. “And to be honest, I’m learning throughout this all.”

He added, “I’m just kind of on the plane ride, just cruising and trying to figure this thing out on the run,” as he navigates his surging fame while dating Swift.

The pair also recently scored nominations for the 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards.
