Taylor Swift has become a regular fixture at boyfriend Travis Kelce’s NFL games—and it sounds like she’s impressed the father of quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Swift and Travis Kelce went public with their relationship in September and they have since become one of the most talked about celebrity pairs. Swift was first spotted at a Kansas City Chiefs game on September 24, alongside Donna Kelce, and she has attended several Chiefs contests this season amid her romance with the tight end.
While watching Travis Kelce play, Swift has formed a friendship with Brittany Mahomes—wife of Travis Kelce’s teammate Patrick Mahomes. As this friendship has developed, Swift has met other members of the Mahomes family, including the quarterback’s father, former MLB pitcher Pat Mahomes. He revealed in an interview that the pop superstar is “genuine” and “down to earth.”
Newsweek contacted Swift’s publicist via email for comment on Thursday.
In a video posted late on Wednesday night to TikTok by Starcade Media, a sports and entertainment media brand, an interviewer asked Pat Mahomes what he could tell them about the “phenomenon” that is Taylor Swift.
“She’s down to earth. I actually walked up and introduced myself to her and she said she knew who I was because she had watched the Quarterback series,” he said, referring to the Netflix docuseries that took viewers into the homes of Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota.
“[She’s] down to earth and took a picture with me and my wife and also took a picture with me and my daughter so I mean she was genuine, every time I’ve hung out with her she just acts like a normal person.”
People took to the comments to echo Pat Mahomes’ sentiment.
