Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jason Kelce‘s wife, Kylie Kelce, said she has no interest in being in the spotlight amid her brother-in-law’s romance with one of the biggest pop stars on the planet.
Jason’s brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, has been dating Taylor Swift and the singer has been a focus of NFL coverage as cameras capture images of her cheering her boyfriend on from the stadium suites.
Kylie said don’t expect to see her in the suites because she loves “sitting in the stands, cheering with the fans, even if it’s in an opposing team stadium,” the New York Post reported.

Kelce’s wife also told reporters during a recent youth field hockey event in Kansas City, “It’s not particularly my cup of tea to be in the spotlight or in front of the camera.”
“I was a communication major in college, I love to be behind it,” she added. “That’s my bread and butter.”
However, despite wanting to hide from the spotlight amid the Kelce-Swift romance that’s dominated headlines and broadcast coverage for months, Kylie does recognize it can offer a chance to shine a light on her and Jason’s philanthropy projects that help those in the community, like her field hockey clinic for kids.
“If it creates opportunities like this and I can leverage my network and figure out how to impact a community that has been so, so kind to the Kelce family, I am so happy to give back to Kansas City in any way,” the Eagles player’s wife said.
“I am just hoping we have enough people in the stadium to say, ‘Go Birds’ to get my husband’s first win against the Chiefs,” she added in the interview before the big Monday night game in which the Eagles did beat the Chiefs 21-17. “He’s [Jason’s] 13 years in, we’re due I think.”
Prior to Monday night, the last time the two brothers met on the field was in the 2023 Super Bowl when Travis’ team beat the Eagles 38-35 in an action-packed showdown. Headlines at the time also noted that Kylie was 38 weeks pregnant and had traveled to Arizona with her gynecologist in case she gave birth early to her and Jason’s third daughter, People magazine noted.
Jason and Kylie tied the knot in 2018 and since that time have welcomed three daughters together, one of whom was born two weeks after the Super Bowl.
