As Travis Kelce and his Kansas City Chiefs teammates are gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday, the 34-year-old tight end is still taking the time to give his girlfriend, 14-time Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift, her flowers.

During media availability on Tuesday, Kelce gushed over his partner’s work ethic and her inspirational passion for singing and songwriting.

“She’s as much of a professional as anybody I’ve ever met. She just has a desire and a love for what she does, you can tell in how she creates things, how she kind of like strategically goes about her career, you can tell she loves every single bit of it,” Kelce stated. “So I just take that and know that when I come into the building every single day and I show everybody how much I love it by how I work, that’s respected very much.”

Ever since the two-time Super Bowl champ and the 34-year-old singer-songwriter sensation went public with their relationship last fall, they’ve been the hottest celebrity couple of the moment.

During a Super Bowl Opening Night press conference in Las Vegas on Monday, Kelce also teased that he’s heard snippets of Swift’s forthcoming 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, out April 19.

“I have heard some of it, yes, and it is unbelievable,” he told reporters. “I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.”

Super Bowl LVIII kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where the Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the San Francisco 49ers.
