Before meeting Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce had dated approximately 50 women. This fact has left some of Taylor Swift’s fans concerned that Kelce may potentially play with her heart, just as he did with the other 50 women.

Dating the biggest superstar in the world may come with a unique set of challenges, but a source tells PEOPLE that Travis Kelce is ready for it as his romance with Taylor Swift continues.

“Taylor’s unlike anyone Travis has dated before,” the source shares as the 34-year-old NFL star hit the town with the “Bejeweled” singer, 33, in New York City over the weekend. “It was very unexpected for his friends, but he’s so into her and very, very happy.”

The insider continues, “Some people thought he was just joking around about the bracelet and having a crush on her earlier this summer, but he was serious about it,” referring to Kelce’s attempt to give Swift his phone number on a friendship bracelet when he attended her Eras tour at Arrowhead Stadium.

According to the insider, Swift and Kelce are “having a great time getting to know one another” and “have introduced some of their friends to each other” in recent weeks.

The source adds, “Everyone’s getting along and seeing how much fun they have together. They make a very cute couple.”

Before his relationship with Swift, Kelce looked for love in a different kind of public setting as the star of his own reality dating show, Catching Kelce. The show featured 50 women from across the country who vied for the football star’s heart as he looked for his lifelong “teammate.” In the end, the football star chose Maya Benberry and the two dated for several months afterward.

Following the cancellation of the E! series, Kelce dated fitness model and broadcast host Kayla Nicole for five years after meeting on Instagram in 2017.

Following rumors about their breakup, including that they parted ways for financial reasons, the Ohio native set the record straight during an interview with The Pivot Podcast in January 2023. At the time, Barstool Sports alleged that the reason for their split was that Kelce forced Nicole to pay for “half of everything” while they were dating. Kelce denied the accusation that he was “too cheap” with Nicole, adding, “don’t buy into that s—.”

He continued, “I would never say that I was supporting her. She had a very financially stable life and what she was doing in her career.”
