Kylie Kelce gave brother-in-law Travis Kelce a piece of dating advice that may have come in clutch amid his blossoming romance with Taylor Swift.“This is going to sound a little harsh,
but I think you should do the mustache [in your dating app photos] because if they swipe right at your worst then they’ll love you at your best,” Kylie, 31, told Travis, 34, during a September episode of his and brother Jason Kelce’s “New Heights” podcast.
Both Travis and Jason, 35 — who tied the knot with Kylie in 2018 — agreed with the suggestion. “Nice, that’s good thinking,” Travis, who previously named his ‘stache El Travador, replied. “That doesn’t even hurt my feelings, that’s just smart.”
The Kansas City tight end was sporting that same mustache just weeks later when Swift, 33, showed up at Arrowhead Stadium to cheer him on as his team defeated the Chicago Bears. The Chiefs have won every one of their games since — with the pop star in attendance for two out of three of them — and so far, Travis has continued to rock the well-trimmed style.
Travis first debuted a mustache last year. The Super Bowl champion later explained why he sometimes opts for it over a full beard during training camp. “That’s when I don’t have any paid appearances, or I’m not subject to doing anything where I have to team up with a company and look presentable,” he told Jason during a “New Heights” episode in August.
Although he played coy when Jason asked what Swift would say about the mustache — the NFL star revealed his crush on the singer after attending her Eras Tour in July — he did say he believed the response would be positive.
“Yeah, we’re not gonna bring up Taylor Swift in this episode,” he quipped, adding, “But something tells me she’s gonna like it.”
Travis seems to know that the ‘stache has become part of his signature style. When asked during a Friday, October 20, press conference what fans should include if they plan to dress up as him and Swift for Halloween, the facial hair was the first thing he pointed out.
