Taylor Swift has received the ‘stamp of approval’ from Travis Kelce’s mom who is said to ‘adore’ the pop superstar – while her friends are reportedly thrilled that she is dating someone outside the entertainment industry.
The singer, 33, sent the internet into meltdown again on Sunday after she was spotted cheering on the Kansas City tight end, also 33, with his mom, Donna, for a second week – and this time she also roped in her famous pals.
Taylor has been an ‘amazing person’ to Donna, according to a source who told DailyMail.com exclusively that the pair have a ‘genuine affection for each other’.
‘Donna is a mom’s mom and only wants the best for her kids,’ they said.

A source close to the singer says the NFL football player ‘balances’ her out
‘She is enjoying all that is happening with her kids and the residual effect it has had on her life, she’s in her 70s and is just having fun seeing her kids do so well, being in commercials, and being the most beloved person in the Kelce family, especially during game days.
‘And as the last several weeks have gone on with all that is happening with Taylor and her son, she thinks that Taylor is as lovely of a person as one could be. She wants Travis to be happy, and Taylor has been such an amazing person to Donna and they both have a genuine affection for each other.’
They continued: ‘Donna speaks very highly of Taylor and has given the stamp of approval to Travis when it comes to his pick on who to date. Donna is looking forward to getting to know Taylor more and more.’
Taylor and Travis have yet to confirm their relationship status, but another insider close to the singer’s girlfriends said she was looking to the future with the famous sportsman.
And she has the green light from her squad, who claim the pair share the same values, and are happy that she has found a love interest outside of the worlds of music and acting.
‘We are hearing that Taylor is very much into Travis and is looking forward to seeing where things go,’ a second source told DailyMail.com.
‘Her close girlfriends are glad she is with someone who shares the same values as her and is not in the entertainment industry.
‘He seems to balance her, and his mom and family adore Taylor.’
DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Travis, Taylor and Donna for comment.
Taylor was briefly linked to British singer Matty Healy, 34, of The 1975 earlier this year following her split from actor Joe Alwyn, 32. She has also previously dated DJ and producer Calvin Harris, 39, and Loki actor Tom Hiddleston, 42.
Taylor and her A-list pals – including Sophie Turner and Blake Lively – went to support Travis at Sunday night’s game at New Jersey’s MetLife stadium, which saw his team beat the Jets 23-20.
She rocked up wearing a pair of $695 denim shorts – which swiftly sold out online – a black leather jacket, and red lipstick – the Chiefs’ signature color.
Donna, who arrived in the fourth quarter after cheering on her son and Philadelphia Eagles player Jason, gave Taylor a hug in the VIP box.
It comes a week after the NFL powerhouse mom was snapped chatting and cheering with Taylor at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas.

Earlier on Sunday, Travis was all smiles as he arrived for the game wearing a suave $1,540 suit from designer LU’U DAN before changing into his Chiefs pregame gear.
Taylor beamed and asked fans ‘how’s it going’ as she walked into the stadium wearing knee high black boots and toasted her friends before the game.
The Chiefs scored a sensational touchdown within the first 10 minutes – at which point jubilant Taylor embraced her friends in celebration.
Travis last week addressed the romance rumors that had been circulating since an interview on The Pat McAfee Show earlier this year.
The host brought up the speculation that was ‘being talked about by the whole entire world right now.’

The professional NFL star admitted on the show, ‘It’s life, baby. I threw it out there, I threw the ball in her court,’ as he revealed he invited her to attend a game.
A source told DailyMail.com last week: ‘Travis and Taylor are talking and Travis is absolutely interested.
‘He has shot his shot and would love to take Taylor on a date and see where they can go in the relationship department.’
The insider added: ‘The one problem that they have now is that their schedules are so all over the place that it is difficult to get together without being seen and everything else that comes from being the celebrities that they are.
‘It isn’t organic to Travis and his liking, but he certainly likes the rumors, because he actually would love to date Taylor if she would give him a chance.’
Taylor’s relationship with Travis comes after her whirlwind romance with The 1975 front man Matty.
The Lover singer shocked the world when it was revealed at the start of May that she was dating Matty, however their encounter wasn’t to last and they went their separate ways in June.
A source told People at the time: ‘She had fun with him, but it was always casual. They are no longer romantically involved.’
The brief fling with Matty came off the back of her split from Conversations with Friends star Joe with whom she’d been with since 2017.
ET claimed that the Lavender Haze songstress and the UK actor allegedly had an amicable split that was ‘not dramatic.’
‘The relationship had just run its course. It’s why [Alwyn] hasn’t been spotted at any shows,’ the insider added.
