Erin Andrews spoke about the reaction to Swift dating Kelce on her recent podcast episode

‘Some NFL Wags – somebody asked in front of me what the gals on their team thought and they were like ‘love it, adorable’ and you know why? Because that’s a man.

‘An NFL wag said that for the first time publicly she’s not with someone who is like ‘Oh yeah I’m with Taylor don’t take my picture’.

Kelce has spoken openly about having to adjust to the attention that comes with dating Swift but has never discussed it too negatively.

In a recent extensive interview with the Wall Street Journal, where he opened up on dating Swift, Kelce said: ‘Obviously I’ve never dated anyone with that kind of aura about them…. I’ve never dealt with it.

‘But at the same time, I’m not running away from any of it…. The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she’s just living, enjoying life.

When she acts like that I better not be the one acting all strange.’

Swift’s ex-boyfriend, the actor Joe Alwyn, was by comparison notoriously private.
