Ellie Thumann has made it very clear who she’ll be rooting for this Sunday during Super Bowl LVIII, but we sort of already assumed the answer.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie, who was photographed for last year’s issue in Puerto Rico by photographer Derek Kettela, just so happens to be a longtime Taylor Swift fan. She attended opening night of the 13-time Grammy Award-winning artist’s “The Eras Tour,” and almost primarily listens to the “You Belong With Me” singer during her daily hot girl walks.

Just in case you didn’t know, Swift, 34, is dating Kansas City’s star tight end, Travis Kelce, also 34. The Chiefs are set to take on the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas—and don’t worry, we already charted Swift‘s route from her concert in Japan back to Las Vegas, and we’re confident she will make it to the Big Game in time.

“lets goooooo,” Thumann, who is best known for her fashion, beauty and lifestyle YouTube channel, captioned a recent TikTok. She showed off her outfit, which featured an oversized leather varsity jacket with red-and-white stripes on the sleeves, as well as a Chiefs logo. 

She showed off the NFL merch, which she got from Uncle Kyle’s Sweater Emporium, located in Charleston, S.C., and paired it with baggy gray sweatpants, a black top, chunky hoops, sleek sunglasses and over-the-ear headphones.

“Yall know who I’m rooting for” read the on-screen text. The video was set to the sound of Swift’s 2012 Red hit, “Stay Stay Stay.”

“GO TAYLOR’S BOYFRIEND!!! 🏈,” one fan chimed.

Swift and Kelce have been linked since last fall, and continue to make headlines with every game she attends, concert he watches and interview they do about one another. We’re closely following the power couple’s love story, and we’re sure Thumann is, too.
