Travis Kelce Said He Wants To 'Find A Breeder' Months Before His Taylor Swift Romance

“Slowing getting over Travis bc why is he calling women ‘breeders,’” one Swiftie tweeted in light of the resurfaced remarks.
Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s whirlwind relationship has unfolded pretty publicly over the last three months, with the whole thing starting when Kelce shouted her out on his weekly podcast and made it clear that he was interested in her romantically.

Two months later, Swift was sitting alongside Kelce's mom, Donna Kelce, as they cheered on his football team, the Kansas City Chiefs, from his private suite.

Since then, Swift has attended even more of Kelce's games, the two have been pictured out together on multiple occasions, and they even made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live" earlier this month.

As for the details of their romance, Kelce has opened up about Swift on his podcast each week since her first appearance at his game, and various sources have leaked even more intimate information to news outlets.
The latest of which came this past weekend, when an insider reportedly told Yahoo Entertainment that the new couple have already discussed having kids together — and can see this happening in the near future.

Discussing how the relationship came to be, the source told the publication that Swift “cautiously” reached out to Kelce after hearing what he’d said about her on his podcast in July.

This is said to have led to a first date in New York City, when the NFL star apparently sealed the deal by making a pretty major statement.

“Travis made a confession to Taylor that changed everything,” the source explained. “He told her that this wasn’t going to be just a fling. He said he can see himself marrying Taylor.”

“They’re already making plans for the future,” the insider added. “He and Taylor have even talked about kids. Travis wants them in the next year or so, and Taylor, of course, is all in. He’s exactly the guy she’s been waiting for!”

But the comment about Kelce and Swift hoping to start a family sometime soon has not landed well. First, many of Swift's fans have taken to social media to point out that her acclaimed Eras Tour is scheduled until the end of November of next year, making it pretty unlikely that she is planning to have a baby at the same time.

And some troubling comments that Kelce made earlier this year have also resurfaced in the wake of this report, with the sports star saying that he needs to “find a breeder” so that he can have children like his older brother, Jason Kelce.

Just months before he shouted out Swift on his "New Heights" podcast, Travis discussed starting a family in an episode with Jason and Donna that aired shortly before the Super Bowl.
In case you didn’t know, in February, Travis and Jason became the first siblings to face off in the Super Bowl as they went head-to-head playing on opposing teams.

Asking their mom which of her sons she would be rooting for in the big game, Jason said, “You’ve said in the past to both of us that you root for me because I’ve given you grandkids; I’ve always known that you root for Travis.”

He went on, “So who do you actually root for? In this one, you have the luxury of rooting for offenses, but if in a battle to the death, me versus Travis, who are you rooting for?”

Jason and his wife, Kylie McDevitt, welcomed their third daughter earlier this year.

After some playful banter among the three, Travis repeated, “I’ve gotta start breeding, I’ve gotta start breeding.”
And he proceeded to shout out, “To all the breeders out there."

“Please don’t,” Jason interjected, while Donna advised her son, “Wait until you find the right person. Find the right person.”

But Travis doubled down, saying, “I’m gonna find a breeder, and I’m gonna get kids so that Mom can love me again.”
Needless to say, Travis’s comments haven’t aged well, and Swift's fans have taken to social media to call him out.

Sharing screenshots from the latest news report, as well as an article reporting on Travis’s comments back in February, one person tweeted, “well i know for DAMN SURE that shit about ‘having kids within the next year’ is NOT coming from taylor’s side. she’s got the eras tour booked all through next year, and she’d rather die than cancel a show. but we do know who’s been public about looking for a ‘BREEDER.’”
Another retweeted this and added, “‘start breeding’ oh this is just fucking disgusting and it's setting us back so much. women aren't baby making machines, women are more than the man they're dating, we are more than marriage.”
“Okay but the breeder comment? Disgusting af I don't care,” someone else agreed. One more echoed, “Nah that breeder comment is foul…”
“The sentence ‘ I’m gonna find a breeder’ makes me physically cringe,” another added. Somebody else tweeted, “Slowing getting over Travis bc why is he calling women ‘breeders’ HUH??”
Some Swifties tried to defend Travis by questioning the reliability of the recent source quotes, but somebody else pointed out that Travis referring to women as breeders is problematic regardless.

“Whether this ‘source’ is real or not is irrelevant,” they wrote. “it’s the fact that it wouldn’t be SURPRISING given what he said about women not too long ago.”

Swift is Travis’ first public relationship since he split from fitness influencer Kayla Nicole in May 2022, whom he dated on and off for five years.

Meanwhile, Swift's fans were left stunned earlier this year when it was revealed that she had split from British actor Joe Alwyn after six years.

In May, she enjoyed a brief but highly controversial romance with the 1975 lead singer Matty Healy, which sparked fierce backlash because of Healy's history of problematic comments and behavior.
