Over the weekend, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce confirmed their relationship as they were pictured holding hands and being generally touchy-feely while out and about in New York City.
This public display of affection comes just weeks after Taylor sent the internet into a meltdown when she made a surprise appearance in Travis’s VIP friends-and-family box at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, as she supported his team’s football game.
Taylor looked cozy with Travis’s mom and the rest of his nearest and dearest, and she left the stadium with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end after the game.
And the public nature of this blossoming romance is exactly why people seem to find it so endearing. The whole thing started back in July when Travis said he was disappointed that he didn’t get to meet Taylor when he attended her Eras Tour.
He went on to candidly explain that he’d hoped to give her his phone number via a handmade friendship bracelet. Soon afterward, rumors began to swirl that the two had quietly started dating.
Needless to say, some still can’t quite believe that Travis’s plan has actually paid off, with one person tweeting that they are in “awe” of how it all worked out for him, while someone else wrote, “Travis really brought a friendship bracelet with his cellphone number on it to the era’s tour for Taylor and now they’re dating. Man, he WON.”
This clip has resurfaced online amid Travis’s new relationship, and one person posted it to TikTok alongside the caption, “If you think he’s not bold enough to shoot his shot with Taylor, remember he’s the guy who did this at the White House.”
