First, Travis Kelce made a heart symbol with his hands (a notable gesture from Taylor Swift) and directed it toward his girlfriend during a Kansas City Chiefs game back in January. And now, the tight end appears to have donned a signature accessory—worn by the “Cardigan” singer on several occasions—during his brother Jason Kelce’s retirement press conference this past Monday.

On March 4, Travis and his parents, Donna and Ed Kelce, attended the conference at the NovaCare Complex in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In one photo taken at the event, the 34-year-old football player is sitting with his hands interlocked while listening to Jason’s emotional speech. 

Below, Travis can be seen sporting a friendship bracelet on his wrist, which features an assortment of black and gold beads including the phrase “T [heart] T.” Clearly a sweet nod to Travis and Taylor’s initials.

In case you weren’t aware, the giving of friendship bracelets has become a fun tradition for Swifties to bond with one another, gaining immense popularity on the singer’s Eras Tour. And fans of the couple know that the friendship bracelet played a very interesting role at the start of Taylor and Travis’s relationship.

In an episode of his podcast series, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, Travis revealed that he attempted to give the “Bad Blood” singer a friendship bracelet along with his phone number at one of her concert stops. But the plan didn’t pan out like he hoped. 

“I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” he told his brother Jason, who is a co-host on the pod. “So I was a little butthurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.” 

Clearly things worked out for the couple anyway.
