Travis Kelce’s Hilarious Onstage Moment with Taylor Swift: “Don’t Drop the Baby” at London Eras Tour

Travis Kelce had a “blast” performing alongside Taylor Swift at her Eras Tour concert in London.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, gushed about his surprise skit during Wednesday’s episode of his “New Heights” podcast, sarcastically saying that it was “very unlike” him to “be a ham.”

He gushed, “I was up there with three professionals. You can do no wrong with Taylor on stage. [I kept telling myself], ‘Do not drop the baby. Hold onto the baby.’”

Kelce explained to his brother and co-host, Jason Kelce, how the cameo came about, admitting he was the one to “initially mention it” to his girlfriend.

“I was like, ‘How fun would it be if I just rolled out on one of the bikes during the “1989” era?’” he recalled. “She started laughing and was like ‘Would you seriously be up for doing something like that?’

“I was like, ‘What? I would love to do that. Are you kidding me? I’ve seen the show enough. Might as well put me to work here,’” Travis continued. “She found the perfect part of the show to put me in. … It was, like, the safest option.”

Travis shocked concertgoers in June when he popped out onstage during a transition for the “Tortured Poets Department” set.

The athlete, who wore a custom suit and top hat, carried Swift across the stage bridal-style before setting her down on a red bed — while repeatedly telling himself not to “f–k this up.”

Travis then jokingly fanned himself as the other dancers helped the pop star change out of her white gown and into a two-piece set, telling Jason he modeled his moves after Jim Carey in “Dumb and Dumber.”

While Swift stayed in character, Kelce, who said he felt “tiny” onstage, couldn’t contain his smile — which was captured in her subsequent loved-up Instagram post.

Before launching into “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart,” the 14-time Grammy winner subtly blew her beau a kiss.

Travis attended all three of Swift’s sold-out shows across the pond while Jason and his wife, Kylie Kelce, were in town for the first two, missing their family member’s big stage debut.

Travis and Swift fell hard and fast after they began dating last summer.

During an appearance on the “Bussin’ With the Boys” podcast, released last Tuesday, the three-time Super Bowl champion revealed what made him fall in love with the “Cruel Summer” singer.

Travis told co-hosts Will Compton and Taylor Lewan that Swift didn’t want any special treatment the first time he invited her to one of his Chiefs games.



“She just walked right through the front door,” he recalled. “There was no talking to security, making sure that she gets to her [seat]. She’s just like, ‘I just wanna be around the family and friends and experience this with everybody.’

“She’s in the madness. She wants to be a part of it. She wants to support me and do things like that,” he said. “She really won me over.”

Despite her level of fame, Travis explained that Swift is “very self-aware” and grounded.

“She understands situations like that and I think that’s why I really started to fall for her, how genuine she is just around friends and family.”

When asked how he has navigated the heightened spotlight, Travis said he is “proud” to be with Swift and has accepted everything that comes with it.

“You want to keep things private, but at the same time, I’m not here to hide anything,” he said. “That’s my girl. That’s my lady. I’m proud of that.”
