How did Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce actually meet?

Taylor and Travis's love story is one that is just as cute as they are. Keen to catch the multi-award winning star's attention, the football player has confessed he made the first move.

Speaking on a podcast, he revealed he attended one of her Era tour dates with the intention of giving her his number. Hiring a box, he put his important digits on a friendship bracelet which he planned to exchange with her afterwards. Cute, right?

However, sadly the pair didn't meet that night but Travis went on to say that didn't put him off just yet.

He then admitted he had some mutual friends, and even Taylor's family members, helping him get her attention.

Travis said: "There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was, in her corner [who said]: Yo! Did you know he was coming? I had somebody playing Cupid."

He even got her younger cousins to take a photo in front of his locker to get her attention.

In the end, an unidentified mutual friend finally connected them together.

Serious fans of the pair have dug around and believe their connection could be actor Miles Teller, or one of Taylor's backing dancers who has links to Travis's football team.

NFL broadcaster Erin Andrews is also a mutual connection as is Kansas City Chiefs superfan Jason Sudeikis who was snapped playing Uno with the global pop star. Whoever it was, Travis and Taylor owe them big time.
