Taylor Swift, 33, is known for her cryptic Instagram captions, detail-filled song lyrics and fan-oriented Easter eggs, and now it looks like she's making secret handshakes too.

While watching the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the Los Angeles Chargers, the “Lavender Haze” singer was spotted hanging out with Brittany Mahomes, 28, who was watching the game with her two-year-old daughter, Sterling, and her infant son, Bronze, in tow. Throughout the game, the group cheered, danced and clapped, but what caught our attention was when Swift and Mahomes pulled out some sort of celebratory handshake.

You can watch the secret handshake above, which occurred after the Chiefs scored their first touchdown. In the clip, the pop star and the sports team owner clap the front and back of their hands together a couple times, before giving each other a bump on the hip. (And are we the only ones who see a resemblance to the iconic handshake from The Parent Trap?)

This is the fourth game Swift has attended to support the Chiefs' tight end, Travis Kelce, 33, who is her rumored new boyfriend. The pair have been linked for the past couple months and they were even spotted holding hands while heading to an SNL afterparty on Saturday, Oct. 14.

In case you've missed the whole story, Kelce first expressed his interest in Swift back in July, when he revealed on his New Heights podcast that he tried to ask the singer out at one of her Eras Tour concerts.

Flash forward a few months later, and the “Love Story” songstress was spotted in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium, cheering on the Chiefs alongside Kelce's mom, Donna.

Since then, Swift has attended a number of other games, even bringing along her Hollywood besties—Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds—to one of the matches.

In the song “Last Kiss,” Ms. Swift sings: I love your handshake. Seems like there's no better time than now to quote that line.
