Travis Kelce Says He is "The Happiest He's ever Been" Amid Romance with Taylor Swift

Following his third Super Bowl victory, Kelce, 34, tells PEOPLE, “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.” Some say I’m a glass half full, half empty type of man, but my glass is completely full. “It is completely full.”


“I’m oozing life right now,” says Kelce, who just returned from a vacation to the Bahamas with girlfriend Taylor Swift. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end says he’s embracing all of the possibilities that have come his way after winning his third title in five years.


“It’s just so much fun getting into when you win the Super Bowl, all these doors open, and so I’ve just been going through all these open doors, experiencing life and just appreciating the people that have got me here and also staying high and meeting new faces.”


Soon enough, Kelce will begin preparing for a new NFL season, but right now he’s got a lot more in the works outside of the football field. Kelce’s second annual Kelce Jam music event will take place in Kansas City on May 18, including performances by Lil Wayne, Diplo, and 2 Chainz. Furthermore, King Pleasure, a documentary on late artist Jean-Michel Basquait that he is co-producing, will begin production this summer.


Kelce and his teammate Patrick Mahomes will also build a steakhouse in Kansas City called 1587 Prime, named after their combined jersey numbers, in early 2025. But Kelce says he prefers to stay busy, especially as he ventures deeper into the entertainment industry.


“It doesn’t feel like there’s much chill in my life. Everything seems to be full throttle and just moving at the speed of light, and that’s how I kind of like it.” Kelce adds, “I like it to be up pace. I like to have just exciting things going on. And sure enough, I’m out here in the entertainment world trying to dabble into that before I get back locked in on football and knowing that that’s going to be my focus until I’m done playing.”


“But to dabble around in the entertainment space is something that I’m really interested in,” he adds. The second annual Kelce Jam is presented by Jim Beam, and fans can register for tickets now at ahead of Friday’s pre-sale.


According to Kelce, the 20,000 people in attendance will be able to continue Kansas City’s Super Bowl festivities. “It’s just going to be an amazing opportunity to get out in front of Kansas City and just celebrate the Super Bowl win one more time.” The Kelce Jam will feature more than simply a star-studded lineup of artists, according to the tight end. “It is not only a music festival, but also a food festival,” he tells PEOPLE.


The event will have “a bunch of Kansas City’s best local spots” as well as Wingstop, Uncrustables and Uber Eats options. “Making sure that nobody leaves hungry,” Kelce adds. “It’s just such a cool experience to be able to do this for Kansas City and to see Kansas City coming out and wanting to do this with me as well. I’m just so grateful.”
