Donna Kelce still feels regret over her answer when asked about her son Travis Kelce’s relationship with Taylor Swift during an interview last month.
The Kelce matriarch — who is also the mother of Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce — opened up to WSJ. Magazine about her son’s budding romance with the 12-time Grammy winner.
During her sit-down interview on the “Today” show in October, Donna seemingly came off unenthusiastic about Swift, when in reality, she simply didn’t want to overstep in oversharing.
Once the interview had aired, Travis immediately called his mom to assure her that she did a good job after she said spending time with Swift was “okay.”
While she still looks back in regret over her underwhelming answer, Donna didn’t hold back gushing over her son’s romance with the “Cruel Summer” hitmaker.
“I can tell you this,” she told the magazine. “He’s happier than I’ve seen him in a long time …. God bless him. He shot for the stars!”
During her interview with co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb last month, the famed football mom said she could not “tell” if the pair were a “budding romance” because it is “just too new.”
She also tried to remain mum when asked about what it was like cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs tight end with the “Anti-Hero” singer.
“I don’t like to talk about it. It’s just one of those things where everyone saw me,” Donna, 70, said. “I was in the boxes with her. It’s another thing that’s amped up my life.”
Travis, 34, has been romantically linked to Swift since September, with the tight end detailing how their relationship began.
Even though the Kansas City Chiefs player acknowledged Swift would “hate [him] for saying this,” he described having “somebody playing Cupid” and convincing the pop star to reach out to him.
“There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was, in her corner,” the “Catching Kelce” alum said. “She told me exactly what was going on and how I got lucky enough to get her to reach out.”
“Everybody knows I’m a family guy,” he later added. “Her team is her family. Her family does a lot of stuff in terms of the tour, the marketing, being around, so I think she has a lot of those values as well, which is right up my alley.”
