He may have got his hands on a second straight Super Bowl, but fans believe Travis Kelce missed the ‘perfect opportunity’ to put the icing on the cake on Sunday night.
Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs became the first team to retain the Super Bowl for almost 20 years in Las Vegas, where they beat the San Francisco 49ers in the final three seconds of a dramatic overtime finale.
After lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy once more, some fans were hoping for Travis to get down on one knee and propose to girlfriend Taylor Swift, who was cheering him on at Allegiant Stadium after making a mad 5,500-mile rush across the globe to watch her man in action.
Kelce and Swift were the fairytale story of the 2024 NFL season, with the pop superstar dominating headlines by attending a number of Chiefs games amid their romance.
And when the Kansas City star didn’t complete their whirlwind year by proposing, some fans couldn’t help but feel disappointed.

Several users took to X after the game to express their disappointment that Kelce didn’t do so
One wrote on X: ‘If Travis Kelce blows this opportunity to propose to Taylor Swift, he’s an idiot.’
Another asked after the game: ‘Okay is travis kelce gonna propose or what’.
A third put: ‘If Travis Kelce does not propose to Taylor Swift at the 50-yard line tonight then what was even the point of this season?’
A fourth commented: ‘All that hype and attention for their sooooooo-amazing relationship which has been going on for quite a bit of time now, and the perfect opportunity and setting for it to happen, but, alas, no proposal by 34-year-old #TravisKelce to 34-year-old #TaylorSwift’.
While one fan admitted: ‘Just lost $350 because travis kelce didn’t propose nice bro’.
Kelce and Swift only went public with their romance when the singer and songwriter arrived at Arrowhead in late September to watch his game against the Chicago Bears.
The couple are believed to have started dating last summer, meaning they have not yet had their one-year anniversary together.
Travis and his team headed out to The Strip to party through the night in Vegas after clinching back-to-back Super Bowls, and Swift joined them along with rapper Ice Spice, Blake Lively and Ludacris.

They were seen sharing a kiss at the victory party while her hit ‘Love Story’ played in the background and Travis was also on fine form in the DJ booth.
Footage emerged of the tight end, who had nine receptions for 93 yards and zero touchdowns in the Chiefs’ thrilling 25-22 overtime win, in a DJ booth dancing to his girlfriend’s song.
Kelce, dressed in the same sparkling black outfit by AMIRI that was custom-made for his Super Bowl arrival, was also seen rallying his crowd of admirers from the booth.
The three-time Super Bowl winner grabbed the mic and shouted, ‘Let’s go Chiefs’, while bopping his head.
