Donna Kelce Said She Feels Like She’s in an ‘Alternate Universe’ Hanging With Taylor Swift at Son Travis’ Games

Even though her son, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, recently said that he thinks the NFL is “overdoing it” with their relentless coverage of his alleged romance with Taylor Swift, Trav’s mom is here for it.


In a chat with the Got It From My Momma podcast this week, Donna said the past year has been a wild experience, including Travis winning a second Super Bowl while beating his older brother Jason’s Philadelphia Eagles as well as the past two weeks of hugging and mugging with Swift. “It’s just very surreal. In fact I was just thinking on Sunday, going to both games and everything that has happened within the past 12 months… I feel like I’m in an alternate universe. It’s not the one I grew up in, for sure. So it’s very, very fun, it’s exciting, but also taxing,” she told pod host Jennifer Vickery Smith, noting that there’s nothing a mom likes to do more than brag about her kids.

Donna said she didn’t think anyone knew who she was before the splash of press she got in February when the Kelce boys squared off in the Super Bowl. But the past couple of weeks blew up her profile by an unimaginable magnitude. “It’s something that I’ve never been involved with before,” Donna Kelce said of the red-hot spotlight that has fallen on her again thanks to Swift’s sudden NFL interest, adding that she was given a heads-up that the pop star would be hanging in the suite with her during the past two KC games.

“I think about right now they’re probably saying it’s getting out of control,” she laughed about the screen time she’s garnered over the past two weeks as the cameras have repeatedly swung to the sky box where she was shows laughing with and hugging Swift. Asked about the breathless coverage of the alleged romance, which has reportedly boosted sales of her son’s jerseys by 400% and pushed the Kelce brothers’ New Heights podcast to, well, new ratings heights while driving up tune-in to KC’s games by young female fans, Donna said it’s hilarious.

“All I can tell you is that the NFL is laughing all the way to the bank,” she said about the league’s tripling-down on coverage of the romance that neither Kelce nor Swift have officially confirmed. “You know what I’m saying? Good for them. They’re getting the ramifications of everything. I can tell you this, that they’ve told me personally that the Kelce family has done more good PR for football than they could have paid a $1 million to a PR firm.”

Donna Kelce also shared that she recently got a DM from a dad who told her that he was excited because, he said, “finally my daughter is watching football with me.” And, because even she can’t help herself, when asked how she’s feeling about an upcoming Monday Night Football showdown between the Kelce boys on Nov. 20, Donna cheekily said it will be a “tough game… they’ve obviously met in the Super Bowl and there’s a lot of bad blood.”

See what you made Donna do there?

For the record, Donna’s favorite Taylor song is “Shake It Off,” because “we’re getting a lot of that lately about haters.”
