It seems Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce just hard-launched their relationship, holding hands and going for dinner before crashing the ‘SNL’ premiere
Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce were photographed holding hands after enjoying a date night on Saturday.
It’s the first time the couple have been photographed together in public.
They also dropped by “Saturday Night Live” to make separate surprise appearances.
It sure looks like Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce just hard-launched their relationship.
Seemingly putting to bed speculation that their relationship is a PR stunt, the singer, 33, and the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, were photographed holding hands after enjoying a date night in New York City.
Their first public display of affection came after the pair dined at celebrity hotspot Nobu, per photos and video obtained by TMZ and Page Six.
Swift and Kelce later went to the Rockefeller Center where they made separate surprise appearances on “Saturday Night Live.”
In the first episode since the end of the writers’ strike, hosted by Pete Davidson, Kelce made a cameo at the end of a sketch poking fun at the NFL’s media frenzy over his rumored off-the-field romance with Swift.
Swift, meanwhile, took viewers by surprise when she appeared to introduce musical guest Ice Spice for her second performance of the night.
Both Kelce and Swift, who have hosted “SNL” before (Swift has also appeared as a musical guest four times), then rounded out the night at the NBC’s show afterparty, pictures from Getty Images showed.
Representatives for Swift and Kelce did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Insider, made outside normal working hours.
Since rumors about their relationship began circulating in September, Swift has attended a number of Kelce’s games, the most recent being the Chiefs’ home win over the Denver Broncos on Thursday.
During the game, the “Style” singer was seen catching up in the Kelce family suite with Donna and Ed Kelce, per People. Photos published by Mail Online showed Swift’s security team outside Kelce’s home until Friday afternoon, suggesting that the pop star had stayed the night.

However, Saturday night’s outing marks the first time the two have been photographed by paparazzi in public together, and many are taking it as confirmation that they are indeed dating.
The new relationship comes months after Swift parted ways with Joe Alwyn, her boyfriend of six years, in April.
During that relationship, neither Swift nor the “Conversations With Friends” actor publicly announced that they were together, but allowed their public appearances together to speak for themselves.
