Travis Kelce Throws Up Taylor Swift’s Iconic Hand Heart After Touchdown

Travis Kelce celebrated the first Kansas City Chiefs touchdown with Taylor Swift’s iconic hand heart on Sunday, January 21.

The tight end, 34, was seen blowing kisses and making a heart with his hands while girlfriend Taylor Swift looked on from his family suite at Highmark Stadium. Swift, 34, watched the Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills alongside Travis’ family members: mom Donna Kelce, dad Ed Kelce, brother Jason Kelce and sister-in-law Kylie Kelce.

While Swift didn’t invent the loving gesture, she is known for making the symbol during her performances.

“The heart-hand symbol means something between ‘I love you’ and ‘thank you,'” Swift told The New York Times in 2011. “It’s just a sweet, simple message that you can deliver without saying a word.”

She continued, “At the end of my sophomore year, I left school and went out on a radio tour to play free show after free show. I was an unknown act playing shows night after night, and I was constantly trying out all kinds of different moves to try and get a response from the audience.”

Travis’ celebration on Sunday was more subdued than that of his brother. Jason, 36, ripped off his shirt and was seen climbing in the stands following the touchdown.

The Chiefs are in a divisional playoff game against the Bills. Whichever team wins goes on to play in the AFC Championship while the losing team is done for the season.

Jason was chilling with a beer in the suite by the time Chiefs landed the next touchdown. He remained sans shirt but he did add a beanie to stay warm. Swift was seen embracing pal Brittany Mahomes after the second TD.

Travis made it clear before he even started dating Swift that he was a big fan. They met after he publicly complained that he didn’t get to give her a friendship bracelet when the Eras Tour stopped at Arrowhead Stadium in July 2023.

“Well, I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” Travis told on their “New Heights” podcast. “So I was a little butthurt, I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”

Swift addressed his forwardness in her TIME Person of the Year interview last month. “This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell,” she teased, adding that they “started hanging out right after that.”

Danny Frye III, Swift’s cousin, recently claimed responsibility for connecting the lovebirds. “Funny thing is, a lot of people have been trying to figure out who I am lately. It’s been an interesting month or so [and] I’ve been going to a few Chiefs games,” he told FloRacing TV in a Saturday, January 13, interview. “You know, [I] made a love connection between her and Travis Kelce, so it’s been quite the 34 years that [Taylor and I have] had together.”
