NFL player Travis Kelce and singer Taylor Swift’s budding romance reportedly owes some credit to FOX Sports commentators Erin Andrews and Charissa Thompson. The NFL star acknowledged the role of the two sportscasters in bringing them together after they shared a throwback video from their podcast “Calm Down With Erin and Charissa” on Instagram.
In the video, recorded last month, Andrews and Thompson enthusiastically endorsed the idea of Swift dating Kelce. Andrews even implored Swift to “please try [their] friend Travis,” describing the Kansas City Chiefs tight end as a “fantastic” person. Thompson echoed the sentiment, urging Swift to “do it for [her]self” and for the two sportscasters, claiming that Kelce would provide her with an exceptional experience. The video received widespread praise on social media, with many crediting the sportscasters for accurately predicting the connection between Kelce and Swift.
Kelce’s expressed interest in Swift dates back to July when he admitted on the “New Heights” podcast that he was “butthurt” about not meeting the singer during her Eras Tour. He mentioned crafting bracelets for her with his phone number beaded into them, expressing his disappointment that he didn’t have the opportunity to give them to her. He even remarked that Swift seemed to avoid meeting anyone, including him, which he took personally.
Following the surfacing of the podcast episode and the support from Andrews and Thompson, it appears that Kelce and Swift’s connection has flourished, leading to their budding romance. The two have been the subject of significant media attention and fan speculation as they navigate their newfound relationship.
As the relationship continues to develop, fans and observers will likely be curious to see where it leads and whether it will become a long-term romance. Kelce and Swift have yet to publicly confirm the status of their relationship, but the pair’s fans remain eager to follow their journey.
