He opened up on how they first connected, recalling: "She'll probably hate me for saying this, but... when she came to Arrowhead [Kansas City Chiefs' stadium], they gave her the big locker room as a dressing room, and her little cousins were taking pictures... in front of my locker."

Travis added that by the time they had their first date in New York, they'd already been talking so knew they could 'have a nice dinner' and felt 'what goes from there will go from there.'

On the level of public interest in their relationship, Travis said: "Obviously I've never dated anyone with that kind of aura about them, I've never dealt with it... But at the same time, I'm not running away from any of it. The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she's just living, enjoying life.

"When she acts like that, I better not be the one acting all strange."

He added that they bonded over how close they are with their families: "Her family does a lot of stuff in terms of the tour, the marketing, being around, so I think she has a lot of those values as well, which is right up my alley."
