Taylor Swift may have taken over the NFL this season but Donna Kelce did it first.

Mama Kelce is the mother of Travis and Jason Kelce who has become a celebrity in her own right to her unwavering support to her All-Pro sons.

The 71-year-old matriarch was at the Super Bowl last year when Travis’ Chiefs beat Jason’s Eagles, 38-35.

She celebrated and consoled her NFL sons on the field afterwards which made the brothers cry when reflecting on it in the days after.

It’s fair to say the Kelce clan are incredibly close and Donna recently revealed the messages she sends to her sons before every game to get them in the right head-space.

Donna shared the heartwarming messages during an appearance on NBC’s ‘Today’ show,.


“I try not to bother them on game day because they’re a little busy, and I don’t think I’m going to get through,” she said.

“But usually I try like the night before, I will text my sons and will give them a little encouragement.

“Send them a little funny picture of when they were younger, depending on what team they’re playing…a little nostalgia.”

Donna has posted throwback photos of her two sons on social media before.

Before the Super Bowl last year she shared a photo of the three of them together on a snowy driveway outside their house.

“#mamakelce1995,” she captioned the post.

Donna is widely expected to be in attendance at Super Bowl LVIII this year.

Travis and the Chiefs face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium, dubbed the $2bn Death Star.

For most of this season Donna has watched Kansas City games from the luxury of a private suite – often alongside Trav’s love interest Taylor Swift – but that looks to be coming to an end this weekend.

Donna was asked what the seating arrangement would be in the Kelce Super Bowl box, but she revealed that she doesn’t think she’ll be in one.

“You can understand that the boxes in Vegas are multi-million dollars, so I have a feeling I’m not in a box,” Donna said.

“I have a feeling I’m in the stands. As far as I know, I’m in the stands with everybody else, because it is a pricey Super Bowl.”

It comes after 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey’s mom said her family won’t be in a box either because it’s too expensive.

“We looked into a suite and none of us can afford it,” Lisa said.

“Not even Christian, money bags over there – nor money bags Olivia [Culpo – McCaffrey’s girlfriend]. … So, we’re not in a suite, I’ll tell you that right now.”

She also joked that Taylor Swift was ‘dead to her’ during the Big Game.

According to the company that handles suite rentals at Allegiant Stadium, a 20-person suite will cost $1.8 million for the Super Bowl.

A premium loge, which includes eight tickets, is available to rent for $250,000.

Speaking about her plans for Super Bowl weekend, Donna added: “It’s going to be a dream – to go back-to-back like this, I’m really excited.

“Last year was pretty much working the whole time but it was a blast. I got to see things and do things and be at places I had never been to.

“But this year I am going to take it a little easier except for the game. I’m going to see some shows and go to some great restaurants.”

One member of the Kelce entourage that could very well be in a box on Sunday is Swift.

The ‘Bad Blood’ singer has a concert scheduled in Toyko, Japan, on February 10, which is the night before the Vegas event.

According to NFL Network, Swift plans to make a cross-Pacific flight to watch Kelce and the Chiefs in person in Las Vegas.
