The Kansas City Chiefs tight end is quite the catch, on and off the field. The two-time Super Bowl champion is one of the biggest stars in sports who has won the hearts of many admirers, but Travis Kelce’s dating history shows he’s given his own to a select few.
Most people assume Kelce’s media attention spurred from his Super Bowl victories but OG fans of the athlete have had eyes on him since 2016 when he appeared on E! Networks’ Catching Kelce, a reality show centered around his dating life. But, more on that later. For those just hopping on the Travis Kelce train, we’ll run back some stats of the star player.
To much surprise, he wasn’t always considered a star on the field. In his early days of football, Kelce was actually considered a two-star recruit coming out of high school by Rivals.com. He accepted a scholarship from the University of Cincinnati to play as the college team’s tight end — a decision that eventually landed him a spot playing with the pros. In 2013, Kelce was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in round three of the NFL draft and 63rd pick overall. After a rough start to his rookie season due to a knee injury, Kelce hit the ground running in his second year. For real — he had 67 receptions and ran the most receiving yards out of anyone on his team. A total of 862 yards to be exact, which is typically unheard of for a tight end.
Kelce would go on to win Super Bowls LIV and LVII alongside his teammates and now has a case to be considered the greatest tight end of all time. Anyway, back to what you came here for: Travis Kelce’s dating life. Let’s dive in. The on-air reporter’s passion for sports goes way back, long before crossing paths with her then-beau. Nicole obtained her Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from Pepperdine University in 2013 and has since appeared covering NBA courtside action on the NFL sidelines and even dishing out some entertainment news.
In addition to Nicole’s media career, her roles as an influencer and ambassador for brands like Savage x Fenty, Revolve, and Crocs have helped her garner over half a million social media followers. One of those followers being Kelce himself. He set his sights on Nicole via Instagram, and it didn’t take long for Nicole to notice her admirer was throwing “all double taps and no DM.” In a since-deleted Instagram story captured by TMZ, Nicole spilled she was the one to make the first move by sliding into Kelce’s DMs “after a little liquid courage.”
