Travis Kelce signals next move with Taylor Swift after Superbowl proposal rumours while she ‘proves it’s no showmance’ 

WITH one a global singing superstar and the other a two-time Super Bowl champion, they’re on track to be the next all-American power couple.

Rumours were rife that Travis Kelce, 34, might pop the question to girlfriend Taylor Swift, also 34, ahead of last night’s much anticipated clash, but fans had to make do with a post-game smooch.

Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs team defeated the San Francisco 49ers in a nail-biting 25-22 overtime win in front of 65,000 fans at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

But for some spectators it was Taylor’s animated displays from the stands – including chugging beer and gleefully celebrating with Blake Lively – that stole the show.

And when she greeted her boyfriend on the pitch after her victory, body language expert Judi James says their synchronised display made it clear their love is the real deal and no “showmance”.

She tells The Sun: “Travis must have been on the crest of an adrenaline wave here, celebrating a moment of sporting triumph that he’s been training for all his life.


“When we’re buzzing to that degree it means stimulus around us tends to get ‘turned off’, meaning we’re virtually unaware what is going on in that moment of virtual ecstasy.

“But Travis’s body language shows he knows very much what is going on, and it’s all about his love for Taylor.

“As she moves in to kiss him an arm winds around his neck and she places a hand on his face to steer and clamp, but she doesn’t need to commandeer his attention because his eye focus is only on her.

“In his moment of elation, it’s her he wants, and that is so telling in terms of where they are romantically.”

Judi adds that Taylor appeared keen to show she’s “authentic” – both about her relationship and her apparent new-found passion for the game.

She even downed a beer from the stands when the jumbotron panned to her – with the clip quickly going viral.

“Travis might be living his best life right now in terms of schoolboy dreams but Taylor’s body language suggests she’s also releasing her inner teenage fan-girl-with-a-crush responses as she watches him play from the box,” Judi says.

“Taylor’s fan behaviour is immersive in a way that other celebrities might not be up for.

“When the camera is on her there’s no checking her appearance or displays of A-list behaviours.

“Instead she is up out of her seat to show off how quickly she can chug down a beer.

“She even poses in profile to ensure everyone can see she’s going at it like a pro, and then she slams the glass down to get the important response of respect from the Chief’s fans.

“She’s letting everyone know she’s authentic and not just putting in a Kardashian-style pitch-side appearance that is more about the selfies and the fashion posing.”

Travis and Taylor confirmed their romance in October after the Shake It Off singer was spotted cheering him on during matches and Travis attended one of her Eras Tour concerts.

Ahead of the Super Bowl fans speculated that Travis could propose to Taylor if his team won – but the fact he didn’t is positive for their relationship, according to Judi.

“I was personally very pleased that he didn’t suddenly do It. It would have been too much,” she says.

“These big public proposals are very fashionable and I’m always very dubious because in actual fact, a proposal should be something a little bit more intimate.

“It would have been one step too far… If he’d got down on one knee and ripped open his shirt with the words ‘Will you marry me?’ on it, it would have been a ‘showmance’ moment.

“I think they’re getting close to a marriage proposal, but I’m glad they didn’t suddenly spontaneously combust at that particular event. It would have been overly cheesy, really.”

‘All-time crush’

During the game Taylor sat with Travis’s mum Donna, his brother Jason Kelce and close pal Aric Jones, as well as the rapper Ice Spice and one of the singer’s besties, Ashley Avignone.

She was also seen celebrating wildly in the private box with actress Blake Lively – married to actor and Wrexham FC owner Ryan Reynolds.

Judi says: “Blake looks like the perfect gal-pal to take with her.

“Blake doesn’t just join Taylor in her celebratory rituals, she intensifies them, acting almost like an even bigger fan here, jumping and hugging Taylor and making them look like two schoolgirls enjoying an all-time crush.”

‘Proud mum’

Judi believes Taylor understood the magnitude of Travis’ achievement and, amid the jubilation, came across as both nurturing and “fan girl”.

She explains: “Taylor shakes his shoulders like a proud mum and their first hug is a comforting one, suggesting Travis might be slightly tearful.

“He drops his head into her shoulder, looking overwhelmed and she pats him and rocks him.

“When his head rises and he’s shown to be grinning, she falls into fan mode, clinging to his ribs to signal mutual emotional need.”

Judi says it’s telling that, while some sports stars may have been more keen to celebrate with teammates or discuss their victory on camera, Travis clung to Taylor.

“This could have been Travis’s cue to communicate his sporting glory to the world but instead he double-dips, going back to nuzzle his head into her neck,” she observes.

“They kiss on the lips before some mutual neck-nuzzling and hugging.

“We knew they’d kiss, and we knew Taylor would fan-girl Travis, but it’s his repeated nuzzling responses to her here, and his intense eye contact on her, that shows the world she’s pretty much up there with his Superbowl triumph in terms of where his love is right now.”
