Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have been spotted kissing in public for the first time and it seems her dad has given his approval.
NFL star Travis travelled to Argentina over the weekend to watch his girlfriend perform at the Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires. The 34-year-old was seen standing in the VIP tent with Taylor’s dad Scott Swift and the pair seemed to be getting on very well.
During the concert, 33-year-old Taylor gave a special shout-out to Travis as she changed her lyrics to reference Travis’ team, the Kansas City Chiefs. Travis had a big grin on his face afterward and Scott cheered on the sweet gesture. Now, body language expert Judi James has said Scott seems “delighted” by his daughter’s new man.
Prior to the concert, Travis gifted Scott a Kansas City Chiefs lanyard. Speaking exclusively to The Mirror, Judi said: “Not only was he wearing the Chief’s lanyard in a very public show that he is ‘team Travis’, but Scott’s body language at his daughter’s concert seemed to make it very clear that Travis has been accepted into the very heart of the Swift nest.”
She said Scott seems to be a big fan of Travis. “Scott looks rather like a personal fan of Travis’ as well as a fan of the fact that he is dating his daughter,” Judi said. “He claps and cheers open-mouthed after Taylor’s romantic shout-out from the stage and he turns to gaze at Travis and egg him on as the penny dropped that he’d just got a very loving mention.”
Judi pointed out how dad’s are often sceptical about who their daughter dates, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for Scott. The body language expert said: “For the dad of a daughter, Scott shows no signs of being anything other than delighted here.
“It’s traditional for a dad to be wary and a little protective and possessive but Scott’s non-verbal signals here look nothing but delighted that his daughter is dating a leading sporting star.” However, she said it’s a big change to how Travis’ mum seemed to react to Taylor.
Taylor was seen hanging out with Donna Kelce at one of Travis’ NFL games. Donna didn’t seem overly impressed as she said meeting Taylor was “ok”. Speaking about the budding romance on the Today show, Donna said: “It’s really strange. But it’s fun— it’s a great ride. At times it gets a little annoying, but most of the time people are just so sweet.”
Speaking about Scott’s acceptance of Travis, Judi told us: “His approval and his integration signals are in contrast to Travis’ mom’s, who did look a lot less committed at first as we saw Taylor performing something of an industrial-strength charm offensive to win her round. Travis and Scott look like long-term buddies here though, with Scott even looking a bit like a Kelce fan.”
Judi’s comments come after Taylor and Travis were seen sharing their first public kiss. After an unforgettable performance, Taylor ran straight off stage and into Travis’ arms.
