Watch: Taylor Swift & Sabrina Carpenter Step Out For a Girls’ Night in Sydney

Welcome to Australia, Travis Kelce.

Local outlets reported that the Kansas City Chiefs tight end officially landed in Sydney on Feb. 22 local time to support his girlfriend Taylor Swift, who’s bringing her Eras Tour to Accor Stadium this weekend.

In fact, Travis is returning the favor after the “Blank Space” singer flew from Tokyo to Las Vegas to attend the Chiefs’ Feb. 11 Super Bowl game against the San Francisco 49ers.

“Thank you for coming,” Travis was overheard telling Taylor—who performed in Tokyo the night before—as they celebrated his team’s win. “Thank you for making it halfway across the world. You’re the best baby. The absolute best.”

It was during Super Bowl weekend that the athlete teased a trip to Australia, sharing with reporters, “I’d love to experience down under.”

Taylor’s concerts hold an extra special place in the couple’s hearts, given that sparks began to fly after Travis attended her Eras Tour stop in Kansas City in July.

And although Travis wasn’t able to get backstage to give Taylor a friendship bracelet, they eventually connected after he called her out on his podcast.

“We started hanging out right after that,” she revealed to TIME in December. “So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other.”

The pair’s relationship was only confirmed when the Grammy winner attended Travis’ NFL game in September.

“By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple,” she noted. “I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”

Since then, the couple has continued to support each other, with Travis traveling to Argentina in November for another Eras Tour stop and Taylor attending numerous Chiefs games.

“When you say a relationship is public, that means I’m going to see him do what he loves, we’re showing up for each other, other people are there and we don’t care,” Taylor told TIME. “The opposite of that is you have to go to an extreme amount of effort to make sure no one knows that you’re seeing someone. And we’re just proud of each other.”

July 2023: So, Make the Friendship Bracelets

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce‘s love story began in July 2023, when the singer’s Eras Tour made a stop at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

As a huge Swiftie, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end caught the show with hopes of giving Taylor a friendship bracelet with his number on it. However, he failed to complete the pass due to her pre-show rituals.

“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,” Travis shared on the July 26 episode of his New Heights podcast. “So, I was a little butt-hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”

Summer 2023: This Is Him Trying

After publicly recounting his fumble—a move Taylor would later describe as “metal as hell”—Travis decided to shoot his shot and invite the Grammy winner to watch the Chiefs play at Arrowhead Stadium.

“I threw it out there, I threw the ball in her court,” he shared on The Pat McAfee Show. “I told her, you know, ‘I’ve seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead, you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead and see which one’s a little more lit.’ So, we’ll see what happens in the near future.”
