Travis Kelce didn’t touch on the joke Golden Globes host Jo Koy made about his romance with Taylor Swift on his New Heights podcast on Wednesday. (A source claimed to Daily Mail on Monday that Taylor “doesn’t have time to clap back at anyone, nor does she want to. She cannot say the same about Travis, who might have some words on his podcast about this.”)
Instead, he opted to divulge some details about his Valentine’s Day plans with Taylor Swift…during an ad segment for Etsy.
Page Six pointed out that in the Jan. 10 episode of the podcast, Travis spoke about the “pressure” he is feeling to find the right gift for Taylor while promoting Etsy, a popular e-commerce site where vendors can sell handmade, custom, or vintage goods.
“Whether you’re feeling the Valentine’s Day pressure like Jason and I, or trying to figure out the right gift for a significant other, Etsy is the go-to destination for adding that special touch,” Travis began. He went on to call it “the real MVP” when it comes to “finding the perfect game-winning gift for Valentine’s Day.” Time will tell whether he hits up the e-comm platform to buy Taylor a gift.
The Kelce brothers spoke a little more about how Jason handles Valentine’s Day gifts for his wife, Kylie Kelce, in the ad. Jason said he usually waits until the “last second like every other man out here on the planet,” but called Etsy a go-to platform for him, of course. Additionally, “I usually get the same chocolates every year and the same flowers and a card,” Jason said.
“Ohhh, that’s adorable. Oh my gosh, chocolate and flowers?” Travis responded.
Travis did not attend the Golden Globes with Taylor, despite also being in Los Angeles that day for the Kansas City Chiefs’ game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Multiple sources told Page Six days before that Travis would “fly back to Kansas City with his team right after the game.”

In recent weeks, it’s been rumored that Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce may have an engagement up ahead, despite having been dating for less than a year. Sources speaking with TMZ, however, suggest things may be the complete opposite and the new couple is actually facing a “very challenging” stage of their relationship.
The publication stated that some “some folks on the inside of this don’t think it’ll go the distance” and that the couple are in their “honeymoon phase,” meaning they haven’t had to deal with any of the harder aspects of a long term connection.
The challenging part is Swift’s upcoming overseas Eras Tour, which begins in Tokyo on February 7. While Kelce has the means to travel, he won’t have the time until the NFL season is over, so it will be a long distance relationship at that point.
But on the other side, the Daily Mail reports that Swift and Kelce are allegedly planning to spend their first Valentine’s Day together as a couple, despite Swift not being in the country. While she’s away, Kelce’s team the Kansas City Chiefs are making their run at the Super Bowl, which makes February a particularly hectic month. The Super Bowl is scheduled for February 11, if the Chiefs have a victory. Swift is going to be in Tokyo through at least February 10, and must be in Australia in time for her show on February 16.
“They both plan to be with each other on Valentine’s Day, they just don’t know if it will be overseas or in America,” said the insider. “Some pieces have to fall into place and if one of those pieces is Kansas City making the Super Bowl, though it would be extremely tiring, she plans to come back for the Super Bowl for him if he is in the game.”
The insider continued, “They have tentative plans on what they will actually be doing, but it all will figure itself out once Kansas City is either in the Super Bowl or not. But they highly anticipate they will be together on Valentine’s Day.”
