You’ve been pronouncing Travis Kelce’s name wrong this whole time. Here’s why

We’ve all been fumbling the ball when it comes to saying Travis Kelce’s name.

NFL defensive tackle Chris Jones brought up an important fact about his Kansas City Chiefs teammate — who, you may have heard, is dating Taylor Swift — while on the sidelines of their game against the Miami Dolphins on Jan. 13.

Jones’ fun fact was corroborated last year on an episode of Travis’ New Heights podcast. At the time, Travis’ brother and co-host, Jason Kelce, confronted their dad, Ed Kelce, about never correcting anyone — including his own family — on how to properly pronounce their last name as “Kels.”

“Why in the world did you change your name out of nowhere and now we are Kel-see?” Jason asked. “Why did we think that our name was Kel-see for the first 24 years… 27 years of my life, 25 of Trav’s.”

Ed denied intentionally changing their last name, explaining he only switched it because he “got tired of correcting people.”

“That’s a good reason to stop,” the Philadelphia Eagles player joked. “That’s as good as I’ve heard. So you changed your entire family’s name over generations because you were tired of correcting people.”

Thankfully, Ed didn’t change his tune on whether people should call them the “Kels” family from now on.
