The Kansas City Chiefs toasted their Super Bowl victory with Travis Kelce‘s girlfriend Taylor Swift‘s hits with the NFL’s golden couple sharing a romantic moment with her ‘Love Story’ playing in the background.
The popstar had cheered on her NFL beau as he clinched his third Super Bowl ring at Allegiant Stadium Sunday and celebrated his win in style.
One of Swift’s famous songs from the Fearless album, provided a romantic soundtrack for her and Kelce’s celebratory smooch.

The couple were seen sharing a kiss at the victory party while her hit ‘Love Story’ played in the background.
Before their celebratory smooch, Swift and Kelce were captured jumping up and down as they sung the lyric, ‘You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess,’ to one another.
The lovebirds had arrived at the Las Vegas nightclub with Swift wearing her tight end boyfriend’s black sparkly jacket over her shoulders.
It was a fitting ending to Chiefs Kingdom’s fairytale season, given Swift and Kelce’s love story has dominated headlines and games.
In several clips shared to social media, the nightclub can be seen packed with thousands of Chiefs fans celebrating the victory with the reigning champions while a remix of Swift’s 2008 hit ‘You Belong With Me’ plays.
The tight end, who had nine receptions for 93 yards and zero touchdowns in the Chiefs’ thrilling 25-22 overtime win, could be seen in a DJ booth dancing to his girlfriend’s song.
Kelce led the crowd and turned to his better half during the eponymous line while pointing to himself.
The global superstar herself was even caught singing along to her own tune, pointing to someone in the crowd – likely Kelce – before lifting up her drink and dancing along.

Shortly afterwards, the house lights dropped and the song became a techno remix with the VIP attendees bouncing along.
Kelce, dressed in the same sparkling black outfit by AMIRI that was custom-made for his Super Bowl arrival, was seen sharing the moment with Swift, while also rallying his crowd of admirers from the DJ booth.
The three-time Super Bowl winner grabbed the mic and shouted, ‘Let’s go Chiefs’, while bopping his head from the booth.
He continued his MC-type role as he revved the crowd up, at one point leading them in a chant of ‘Na, na, na, na, hey, hey, goodbye!’ Although it’s unclear who this was directed at.
He also posed for a celebratory snap with Andy Reid – despite his mid-game meltdown at the head coach – and held up three fingers to represent the Super Bowls they have won together.
The team had initially kickstarted their celebrations at Zouk but around 2am local time, The Chainsmokers’ Alex Patell posted a photo showing the group piling into a private jet on the tarmac in Vegas. ‘Let’s go home,’ the caption read.
However, Kelce and co. kept the party going as they headed over to XS Nightclub at around 2.15am.
They were greeted to an over-the-top welcome which included oversized signage and LED screens that read ‘XS welcomes 2024 champs,’ red and yellow confetti flying in the air, and Queen’s popular song ‘We Are The Champions’ blasting throughout the speakers.

Mahomes and wife Brittany left around 3.30am but Kelce and Swift continued the celebrations until dawn, eating chicken fingers and fries in the VIP section until 5.15am.
Swift had raced back from Japan to make it to the Super Bowl after playing four straight nights of her Eras Tour in Tokyo this week.
Given she starts a tour of Australia next weekend in Melbourne, she is not anticipated to hang around too late into the night as the Chiefs celebrate making history.
Shortly before the team made it to The Strip, Kelce led the celebrations in the Chiefs locker room at Allegiant Stadium after their dramatic overtime triumph.
The tight end, 34, was seen drinking from a gold bottle of champagne while some of his teammates lit cigars.
Kelce led his team through a rendition of ‘We Are The Champions’ before they made their way out into the Vegas Strip that they avoided for all of last week in the build-up to the biggest game of them all.
However, it could not be forgotten how he was nearly the villain of the piece when things were not going his team’s way in the first half at a thunderous Allegiant Stadium.
With the Chiefs offense spluttering, Kelce was called off the field for a play by head coach Andy Reid but with the end zone in sight, wide receiver Isiah Pacheco made a rare fumble and the 49ers reclaimed possession of the ball.
It prompted a wild and angry response by Kelce, who stormed over to his coach Reid, 65, and shoved him while he screamed in his face. Reid, caught off guard, nearly stumbled over before Kelce was led away by teammate Jerick McKinnon.

Yet Kelce could have been the villain when he shoved his coach Andy Reid, 65, in the first half
It was a bad look for Kelce, who has form for this sort of thing. When the Chiefs collapsed to a Christmas Day loss to the las Vegas Radiers in Kansas City, Kelce appeared to shoulder barge Reid moments after slamming his helmet to the floor.
In the first half Kelce had, in his own words, played like ‘a jabroni’, taking one catch for one yard. His team went into the interval trailing by seven points.
But he returned to his electrifying best in the second and as the game spilled into overtime, Kelce finished with nine receptions for 93 yards. With 16 seconds left in the game and the Chiefs down by three, Kelce surged forward on a blistering 22-yard run to get his team in comfortable field goal range to ensure overtime.
His final catch set up the game-winning touchdown, with the imperious Patrick Mahomes finding Mecole Hardman to win the game. It made the Chiefs the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since Tom Brady’s New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004.
Afterwards, Kelce threw down the gauntlet for his team to challenge for a three-peat next year – a feat never managed before in the NFL.
Speaking on the podium as the Chiefs claimed the Super Bowl trophy, Kelce told the crowd: ‘We get a chance to do it three times in a row. I’ll see you all next year.’
As for the clash with Reid, Kelce was eager to downplay the incident.
‘Ah, you guys saw that?’ Kelce said to CBS. ‘I’m a keep that between us. I was just telling him how much I love him.’
It was a sentiment Kelce reaffirmed in his post-game media conference when reporters asked him about Reid.
‘I got the greatest coach this game has ever seen,’ he said. ‘He’s unbelievable and not just in having everyone prepared. One of the best leaders of men I’ve ever seen in my life.
‘He has helped me a lot with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion and I owe my entire career to that and how to control how emotional I get. I just love him.’
Reid was just as eager to bury the hatchet with Kelce, telling CBS: ‘He keeps me young. He tested that hip out. He caught me off-balance – normally I get him a little bit but I didn’t have any feet under me.’
Kelce and Mahomes were soon filmed making their way out of Allegiant Stadium, where they are expected to party into the night in Vegas.
‘On top of the world right now, baby,’ Kelce said to reporters. ‘It’s a good feeling.’
Kelce will return to Kansas City for the team’s victory parade while Swift’s schedule from here is unclear – she starts a tour of Australia next weekend in Melbourne.

But the scenes on the field in Vegas would have been scarcely believable when the season started back in September and Swift and Kelce’s relationship was still under wraps,
They went public at a Chiefs game on September 24 when Kelce led his team to a commanding 41-10 win over Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium.
Back then, in the blazing Kansas City sunshine, the bold and fanciful talk was of Kelce winning the Super Bowl all over again with the world’s biggest star cheering him on.
And yet now, he’s done it. A three-peat next? With Mahomes alongside him, a coach who embraces his flaws and his prodigious talent and life off the field going from strength-to-strength with Swift, it’s brave to bet against Kelce.
