Taylor Swift is taking her friendship with Brittany Mahomes to new heights!
The singer-songwriter, who turned 34 on Dec. 13, celebrated a Kansas City Chiefs touchdown Sunday by picking Mahomes up.
Photographers snapped a picture of the joyous moment. Mahomes, 28, smiled happily as she wrapped her arms around Swift.
Both were dressed cozy for the game. Mahomes wore a winter white trench coat over a long-sleeve black top and black pants. Swift, meanwhile, showed her support for tight end boyfriend Travis Kelce, 34, in a Chiefs sweatshirt and beanie hat featuring his number 87.
The Chiefs won Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, with a score of 27-17.

Mahomes and Swift sat together in a suite at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts for the game. They were also joined by the pop star’s dad, Scott Swift as well as fellow singer, Alana Haim.
Swift’s dad Scott displayed a shift in loyalties on the evening by swapping his Philadelphia Eagles green to support his daughter’s new boyfriend’s team. Meanwhile, fashion consultant Ashley Avignone and one of Swift’s longtime backup singers Melanie Nyema were also pictured rooting for Kelce and the Chiefs.

During the game, Mahomes shared a snap to her Instagram Stories of a cookie decorated with “Dads, Brads and Chads.”
The reference on the sweet treat was a nod to a comment Swift made during her Time Person of the Year cover story in which she defended the amount of coverage her attendance at Kelce’s games receives. The “Style” singer told the outlet she goes to games solely to “support Travis,” has “no awareness” of how often she’s shown on TV and doesn’t care about “pissing off a few dads, Brads and Chads.”
Back in October, Swift and Mahomes appeared to cement their friendship by debuting a special handshake as they watched the Chiefs take on the Los Angeles Chargers.
Sitting in the Mahomes’ suite at Arrowhead Stadium, the excited pair celebrated their men connecting for a touchdown by slapping the fronts and backs of their hands together five times. They then grasped each other’s hands before bumping their hips together and rounded off the show of support with a chest bump.
Meanwhile, Kelce’s friends have revealed that his romance with Swift isn’t for show, despite the level of attention they receive. In fact, they insist it’s the “real deal.”
“[Travis’ friends are] still a little shocked by all of it — that he’s dating the Taylor Swift, but they’ve seen how down to earth she is with his friends and family,” an insider close to the Kansas City player exclusively told PEOPLE last month.
The source added that the relationship is “growing” because Kelce and the “Cruel Summer” singer have both found success in their own worlds — and they continue to appreciate one another’s accomplishments.
“They’re both really hard workers, and he acknowledges her art is hers, and he has what’s his,” the source also said. “He understands the territory their relationship comes with and like he said, isn’t letting any of the hoopla impact how they’re growing together.”
