Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs are en route to defend their Super Bowl title from 2019. They won their second-straight AFC Championship a couple of weeks ago. 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes was the standout performer for the Chiefs in that game. But another player who impressed was Travis Kelce.

The 31-year old tight end had 118 receiving yards on 13 receptions including 2 receiving TDs as the Chiefs beat Buffalo Bills by a 38-24 scoreline at the Arrowhead. Kelce is having a terrific season with KC (yet again). He set the league record for most yardage by a tight end in the NFL (1,416) this season overtaking San Francisco 49ers man George Kittle.

Travis Kelce is a well-revered figure, both on and off the football field. Let’s take a look at his personal life, especially his relationship with on-again partner Kayla Nicole.

Travis and girlfriend Kayla Nicole are definitely ‘relationship goals’

Travis Kelce first met Kayla Nicole back in 2017. The dashing NFL superstar was previously in a relationship with German-born actress Maya Benberry. Travis met her on a show that he was part of by the name ‘Catching Kelce‘. The show involved 50 young women who battled to win Kelce’s heart. In an NFL-meets-The Bachelor crossover, it was Maya Benberry who won the race to become Kelce’s love interest.

The pair dated for a brief period after the show. However, they called it quits after 8 months. That’s when Kayla Nicole entered his life and picked up the pieces of his broken heart.

Kayla, who majored in journalism from Pepperdine University in Malibu, was working as an aspiring sportscaster at the time. She has hosted the NBA, BET, Global Grind, HotNewHipHop, XONecole, and All Def Digital. Nicole has also been a courtside reporter for LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers in NBA.

She also runs her own private news portal that is named Kayla Nicole TV. In addition to that, Kayle advertises and models for Rihanna’s lingerie brand – Savage by Fenty – on her Instagram @iamkaylanicole. She has over 475.3k followers.

After a brief split in August 2020, the couple got back together in November last year. There were rumors that Kelce’s infidelity was the reason behind the split. However, Nicole was quick to deny any such claims.

In fact, a response to an IG story on her official handle even led to rumors that the pair are ready to ‘tie the knot’ sooner rather than later. While playing a round of ‘True or False’ with her Instagram followers, a fan replied saying ‘You’re ready to be a mom’. Nicole was quick to respond by saying “False, I am ready to be a wife though. COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH.”

Well, if these rumors are true then a possible 2nd Super Bowl ring is not the only new piece of ornament that Kelce will be sporting in the coming weeks. Regardless, we hope this dashing couple continues to entertain fans with their amazing camaraderie.
