During the latest episode of New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce — the podcast he records with his brother Jason Kelce — Travis, 34, shouted out Taylor Swift for celebrating his recent NFL record.

On Sunday, Travis became the fastest tight end in NFL history to reach 11,000 receiving yards, and Swift, 33, was quick to show her support for her man’s history-making efforts.

The pop superstar liked an Instagram post from Travis’ team, the Kansas City Chiefs, celebrating the record on Monday.

And discussing Travis’ record and Swift’s show of support on their podcast, Jason, 36, noted, “You might not care about records but you know who does, a 92 percent-er by the name of Taylor Swift. That’s right. She liked an Instagram announcement from the Chiefs about you breaking this record.”

“Alright now. Thanks Tay,” responded Travis, while laughing at his sibling’s comment.

“Gotta love the support,” quipped Philadelphia Eagles center Jason. “Has she always been a fan of tight end receiving yards? Is she a big tight end receiving yards [fan]?”

"I’m not sure, that’s a good question,” replied Travis. “Maybe. I don’t know. I don’t know if she’s a fan of tight ends or not. I have to ask her.”
