Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt’s daughter described Travis Kelce’s girlfriend Taylor Swift as a member of the ‘Chiefs Kingdom’ during the NFL Honors.
The Hunt family – owner Clark, wife Tavia and eldest daughter Gracie – walked the red carpet at the NFL Honors in Las Vegas on Thursday ahead of their team’s Super Bowl appearance this weekend.
As the Chiefs discussed making back-to-back Super Bowls, the Hunt family was asked if they had met Swift with Gracie replying: ‘She’s bright, beautiful and so talented. And we actually got to go and attend her Eras Tour concert this summer and having her as part of Chiefs Kingdom was so special.’
The Hunts weren’t the only ones with Swift on the brain during the show, as NFL Honors host Keegan-Michael Key cracked a few jokes involving the pop star during his opening monologue.
All three members of the family gave a nod to Chiefs Kingdom with their attire on Thursday night.

Tavia looked glamorous in a midi red dress with a keyhole cutout, which she teamed with a silver clutch and court shoes. Her husband matched her with a Chiefs red tie.
Meanwhile, Kansas City heiress Gracie dazzled in a matching silver sequin knee-length dress. She repeated her team with a bold red lip which she described as ‘that red lip classic thing that you love’, referencing a lyric from Swift’s hit ‘Style’.
The Hunts weren’t the only ones discussing the singer, as host Keegan-Michael Key referenced Swift in his opening monologue.
First, Key mocked the NFL’s worst team by referencing Swift’s Eras Tour before unloading on former Patriots head coach Bill Belichick with a mention of the pop star.
‘Taylor Swift is in Tokyo at the moment. The only thing further from the Super Bowl is the Carolina Panthers,’ Key joked.
“Who would have thought we’d see a season where Taylor Swift went to more playoff games than Bill Belichick?” Key added, getting big laughs from the crowd.
The question on the minds of all Swift fans right now is whether she will be able to return from her concert in Japan to be in the stands for the Super Bowl.

A recent rumor from former NFL quarterback turned radio host Boomer Esiason said that Swift’s management will ask the NFL for the 14-time Grammy winner’s jet from Japan to Las Vegas and her private luxury box to pay
“You should know that her people are in contact with the NFL. And her people are probably saying, “If you want her at the game, you have to pay for the jet coming back from Tokyo. And she needs her own suite,” Esiason said on his radio show this week.
“I’m telling you, man. This is business, man. It’s all about business. How many times are we, CBS, going to show her? And are we going to show an arrival shot?’ Esiason asked.
“What’s interesting is if the NFL does pay for all this stuff, you know, it could be like, ‘OK, we’ll take care of all that, but we want to be able to shoot you when you come to the stadium, whatever,’ Esiason added.
