Taylor Swift and NFL fans have been standing shoulder to shoulder lately amid the singer’s bubbly relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star player Travis Kelce. After appearing at two Chiefs games to support her rumored boyfriend – and most notably skipping a recent game against the Minnesota Vikings – Swift returned to the stands to cheer on Kelce in the Chiefs’ most recent clash with the Los Angeles Chargers .
While Swifties have come to expect some surprising on-field moments from the pop star – including run-ins with other celebrities and loving hugs with Kelce’s mother Donna – Swift has once again shown her talent for stealing the scene after an encounter with Brittany Mahomes. the wife of Chiefs quarterback and Kelce’s teammate Patrick Mahomes.
As their respective partners scored or contributed to touchdowns that led to the Chiefs ultimately defeating the Chargers, Swift and Mahomes had the ultimate celebration in the form of a well-practiced handshake.
What is the handshake between Taylor Swift and Brittany Mahomes?
The handshake between Swift and Mahomes came shortly after Patrick Mahomes made a play to wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who then scored a touchdown to give the Chiefs a 10-3 lead. To celebrate, the duo gave a rehearsed handshake with two forward high-fives, two backhand high-fives and a loving hip tap. Here’s hoping the choreography makes it to the stage of Swift’s Era’s tour.
Swift and Mahomes were all smiles as they broke off the handshake in what appears to be a blossoming friendship between the two. It was reported that Swift and Mahomes shared a suite while in town for the game and both had plenty to celebrate given Kelce and Mahomes’ performance against the Chargers.
Swift has attended four of Kelce’s five recent games and has previously appeared at Chiefs games against the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium and the New York Jets in East Rutherford. While they weren’t all quite as choreographed, Swift’s reactions to the Chiefs’ successes have sent the internet into a frenzy, to the point where CBS commentator Jim Nantz mentioned her absence at a recent game.
In addition to Mahomes, Swift was seen enjoying time with other NFL players and their girlfriends, including retired quarterback Bernie Kosar. It’s not yet known how often Swift will attend her rumored boyfriend’s games (the Chiefs will next play the Broncos in late October), albeit with her record-breaking concert film The Eras Tour With Taylor Swift currently dominating cinemas around the world, it’s hard to imagine him even finding the time for it.
