Exclusive: "Real Love Never dies" :Jason Kelce and Travis announced that mom Donna is set to re-marry dad Ed after 20 years of divorce...
There are nearly 20 people in the photo, all of whom look ecstatic, with multiple ones wearing Chiefs paraphernalia. Chiefs fans, of course, are feeling pretty good these days after the team beat the Baltimore Ravens Jan. 28 in the AFC championship game to advance to the 2024 Super Bowl. Swift sported a red sweater and black hat in photos from the game shared by Brittany Mahomes, wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, so it’s possible Kelce’s new cover photo on Facebook is from that day.

Donna and Ed Kelce made headlines last year when their two sons, Travis and Jason, a center with the Philadelphia Eagles, competed against each other in the Super Bowl.

In February 2023, the two became the first-ever NFL parents to have sons on opposite sides of a matchup on football’s biggest stage. And now, they’re back in the spotlight as moments of them next to their son Travis Kelce’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift, have gone viral.

Swift, who’s been spotted attending Chiefs games since late September 2023, has been captured sitting beside and sharing laughs with Donna and Ed Kelce.

Most recently, Swift was pictured with three members of her boyfriend’s family — Ed, Donna and Jason Kelce — when the Chiefs won the AFC championship game.

In the photo shared by Swift’s friend Keleigh Teller, in her Instagram story, they all appear to be sharing a big laugh as Jason Kelce holds a beer and looks behind him toward a crowd of people.

Following the Chiefs’ win against the Baltimore Ravens, Swift and the family rushed the field together for a moment with the all-star tight end.

Donna Kelce and Ed Kelce welcomed their famous sons into the world over three decades ago. Here’s what to know about some of the most iconic parents in football.

Donna was the first person in her family to graduate from college
While appearing on a parents episode of the Kelce brothers’ podcast, “New Heights,” Feb. 6 prior to the 2023 Super Bowl, Donna Kelce, née Blalock, said that she grew up in inner city Cleveland in a “small house” with her grandparents living upstairs.

After moving to the suburbs in fourth grade, the mom of two said her own mother was “very ill” and passed away when she was 12 and her brother was 10. Following her biological mother’s death, Donna Kelce said her dad married a “wonderful human being” named Mary.

“(Mary) raised Don and I,” Donna Kelce said, referring to her brother. “And, by the grace of God, if we didn’t have her, I don’t think we would have made it through.”

Mary motivated Donna Kelce to go to college, despite the reluctance of her father, who wanted her to attend secretary school. After earning a degree in broadcast communications from Ohio University, Donna Kelce became the first person in her family to graduate from college.

But Donna Kelce chose not to pursue a career in communications. She went back to school for her masters and ended up in banking.

Ed comes from a long line of military veterans
On the same podcast episode with his sons, Ed Kelce said he was the oldest of two children and grew up in the Collinwood neighborhood of Cleveland.

“Blue collar town, blue collar part of Cleveland, great neighborhood,” he said on the podcast of his childhood. “It was a lot of fun.”

They remained amicable. On the “New Heights” podcast in 2023, Jason and Travis Kelce spoke to their mom about her marriage to their father, which lasted for over 20 years, before Donna Kelce confirmed she and Ed Kelce divorced over 10 years ago.

Donna Kelce said they’re “friends to this day.”

She continued, “We get along great, it’s just sometimes people, they, move apart.”

Ed Kelce shared a similar sentiment, telling the two that he wants “nothing but happiness for (their) mother.”

After Jason Kelce asked each of his parents separately if they regret marrying one another, they both quickly responded no, with Donna Kelce adding, “Because I got you two.”

Donna Kelce said she and her former husband were a “tag team” raising their two boys and “did all these fun things.”

“It was perfect,” she said. “You got to do whatever sports you wanted. You got to go on all the tournaments. You got to everything and it worked out.”

Ed coached Jason and Travis in baseball growing up
After asking their dad to recount which organized sport first inspired their passion for the game, Ed Kelce reminded them that their love began on their living room floor.

“The first thing you did was you were a toddler on the living room floor and you rolled a ball to me, you rolled it back and we played that way and that’s where it all started,” he said on the “New Heights” podcast.

Growing up in Cleveland Heights, Ed Kelce coached his sons, Travis Kelce in T-ball and Jason Kelce in coach pitch baseball. He even built them areas to play sports in their garage and threw a ball around with his two boys in their front yard.
