The parents of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are expected to meet for the first time at the “Monday Night Football” game in Kansas City next week, ET reported Wednesday.
Andrea and Scott Swift, and Donna Kelce and Ed Kelce are expected to be in town for the Super Bowl rematch between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, the entertainment news outlet said.
(Note to Swifties: Watch the game. It should be great.)
Kelce’s parents were already expected at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to watch him and his brother, Jason Kelce, the Eagles’ center, play. But now the game seems destined to become a headline-making family affair transcending the NFL.
Swift performs the night before in Brazil, so she faces a whirlwind trip to Kansas City if she plans to attend.
The news of the parental meet-up gives some clue to what Thanksgiving week could look like for the Swifts and Kelces.
Page Six had previously reported that Swift will fly back to the States after her Sunday concert in Rio de Janeiro, giving her four days off to enjoy Thanksgiving before performing again.
But with two games, multiple days of practice and a trip to Vegas during Thanksgiving week, Kelce’s days are much busier.
Kelce and his teammates will have Tuesday off, which would allow the families to celebrate Thanksgiving early.
The Chiefs play the Raiders in Las Vegas on Nov. 26, which means Kelce has practice on Thanksgiving Day. And that is likely a travel day for Swift, who performs a concert in São Paulo, Brazil, the day after Thanksgiving.
If both families show up at Arrowhead Monday, Eagles fans will have a keen eye on Scott Swift. The longtime Philadelphia fan was seen wearing a red Chiefs lanyard at his daughter’s Saturday in concert in Argentina, a gift from Kelce, who watched the show with him.
On the latest episode of their “New Heights” podcast, the Kelce brothers joked about it.
“What are we doing, Scott? You’re gonna let this man’s devilishly good looks and relationship with your daughter sway you from a lifetime of fandom, Scott. That’s ridiculous,” Jason said.
“I might have persuaded him at dinner the night before when I met him. Maybe, who knows?” Travis said. “He’s a huge football guy.”
