When photos went viral last week of singer Taylor Swift and her Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end boyfriend Travis Kelce vacationing in the Bahamas, fans were quick to notice that the NFL star may have gained some weight since his team won the Super Bowl last month. This hasn’t deterred Swift in the slightest, however, as an insider is saying that she “loves” his new “dad bod.”

Swift ‘Loves’ Kelce’s Dad Bod

On Wednesday’s episode of his New Heights podcast, Kelce joked that he’s gone up a class after gaining 30 pounds in the off-season. While he weighed 250 pounds during the NFL season, he suggested that he is now the same weight as his 283-pound brother Jason. A source close to Swift was quick to say that she has no problem with this, however.

“When it comes to Taylor’s thoughts on his changing body – she loves it,” the insider told Daily Mail. “Travis and his dad bod is the reward he is giving himself for having an epic Super Bowl-winning season, and during his offseason – since he has been able to party and spend some quality time with Taylor – he isn’t training the way that he usually does as he is resting.”

The source went on to say that Swift believes that Kelce “deserves” to let go after all the work he put into his NFL season.

“She thinks he is hot in all incarnations and thinks he deserves it,” the insider explained. “She knows he will be back to peak level later this year, and where he is at now is not a problem at all. Plus, at the end of the day, if this is the alternate body that he will have after he retires, it still isn’t a bad body to look at.”

Swift And Kelce Enjoying Spending Time Together

Swift and Kelce, both 34, went public with their relationship back in September. They are currently enjoying some much-needed time together as he enjoys his off-season and she takes a break from her Eras Tour, which will resume in May.

“This is the first time the two of them have had no commitments and they are both really looking forward to being a normal couple and playing house,” another source previously said.

“She is looking forward to sleeping in and cooking dinners at home,” this insider added. “They both want their relationship to be as normal as possible and it works because they are both very aware of their fame but neither let it go to their heads.”

“They’re focused on rest and recuperation and relaxing at home and having low-key and chill time together,” another source told US Weekly. “They don’t want to spend too much time apart.”

Swift and Kelce were photographed enjoying their time in the Bahamas last week as they vacationed there.

“They vacationed in the Bahamas for several days,” an insider told People Magazine. “It was a much-needed break for both of them. They very much enjoyed it. They are so happy together.”


Swift and Kelce are an adorable couple, and the world is captivated by them at the moment. However, it’s important to remember that they are still fairly early in their relationship. Only time will tell if they are actually able to stand the test of time.
