Following the team's victory, Swift rushed down to the field to congratulate her boyfriend Kelce.

"Thank you for coming baby. Thank you for the support. Thank you for making it halfway across the world. You’re the best baby, the absolute best," the tight end told Swift at the time, according to PageSix.
