Travis Kelce “felt terrible” after seeing Taylor Swift talking with his father, Ed, during the Chiefs-Broncos game on Thursday.
During the latest episode of his “New Heights” podcast, Travis and his brother, Eagles Center Jason Kelce, explained why they were nervous about Swift’s one-on-one with their father.
“If you were watching the game, you saw something big happen, which was Taylor Swift talking to Ed Kelce,” Jason said of his younger brother’s girlfriend.
“Yeah, Taylor talks to dad, you already know, you know dad like I know dad,” Travis joked, to which Jason added, “What the hell he shouldn’t talk to Taylor Swift.”
The All-Pro center couldn’t contain his laughter, as Travis continued, “That’s a terrifying conversation and I felt bad for Taylor for being a part of that.”
The siblings explained that someone talking to their mother, Donna Kelce, is “delicious” and a much different experience than talking to Ed.
“If you see Dad talking to someone and you don’t hear what’s going on, who knows where that conversation is going.”
That’s when Travis ends Ed’s roast.
“We can’t keep kicking daddy just because we love doing it, man,” Travis said. “Our father is the best fucking father king in the world. He is a great conversationalist or conversationalist, as we want to say.
“That’s where Jason gets his storytelling and a lot of his charisma. We just say this because we like to make fun of the big guys.
“It was good because mom was in the spotlight, so it was cool to see dad up there on the Jumbotron or on TV for a little while,” the Eagles veteran said.
Swift, who wore a WEAR by Erin Andrews Chiefs jacket to the game, was featured on Prime’s “Thursday Night Football” talking and laughing with Ed — and at one point, he hugged his arms the patriarch of the Kelce family.
The “Cruel Summer” singer was also photographed standing in the suite with Ed, Donna and Brittany Matthews, the wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
“You can just see in this picture, all he’s doing is absolutely pumping it up,” Travis said, referring to his father speaking with Swift.
“He started listening to his music a little more, he started doing stuff.”
NFL stars continued to joke about Ed.
“Bless his heart,” Jason said, laughing, “What does he say?”
“Did he steal his music from the library?” » Travis asked jokingly.
“He’s probably saying, ‘I took out all your CDs from the local library and started burning them on my computer,'” Jason said, adding that “92 percent enjoyed seeing Dad sitting next to of Taylor while as much as we did.
Later in the episode, Travis thanked his father “for not making me look bad” to the mega popstar.
Kelce and Swift — who have been linked since August after the All-Pro tight end took shots at the singer on his podcast — went out to dinner together at the Waverly Inn in New York on Sunday.
They were also seen leaving the “Saturday Night Live” afterparty and were photographed holding hands each time.
