During the Super Bowl opening night press conference, Kelce was questioned about whether he was considering winning another ring considering how much his relationship with girlfriend Taylor Swift has grown in 2023 in front of the public.
He insisted that he wasn’t overly concerned about that.

“I’m focused on getting this ring and that’s all my mind’s focused on right now,” he stated.
Arash Markazi of the Sporting Tribune captured the conversation.
There was no shortage of queries about Swift. During the Grammy Awards, the tight end for the Chefs was questioned about Swift’s dominance. With her most recent album, “Midnights,” she broke the record for album of the year honors and became the first vocalist to win it four times.
By winning the prize three times, Swift also made history as the first and only female solo artist. She in the same category as Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Frank Sinatra.
“She’s amazing,” he said to ESPN. “She is altering the historical accounts. I informed her that I had to fulfill my half of the agreement and bring some hardware home as well.”
In his eventual Hall of Fame career, Kelce will have received two Super Bowl rings, nine Pro Bowl selections, and four first-team All-Pro accolades. All of that, though, is irrelevant to Kelce as he prepares for the game on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium.
It was known that Swift, who has traveled across the nation to watch Chiefs games, would not be joining Kelce at the Grammy Awards this year.
Swift has now won 14 Grammy Awards in her storied career. She also won best pop vocal album and said that her upcoming album, “Tortured Poets Department,” will be out in April.
