Power couple Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift cannot stop breaking records as the NFL superstar followed in his girlfriend’s footsteps.

While he may arguably be better known as Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, Kelce has made a few waves of his own as he continues his professional relationship with NFL superstar Patrick Mahomes, at least until the end of the 2027 season.

“Back at it again baby,” Kelce said in a video posted by the Chiefs on X.

“Just got out on the field with the boys. We’re back at it baby. Chiefs forever.”
