Tony Romo is as enamored with Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s romance as everyone else. The famous sports commentator explains why he calls Taylor Swift ‘Travis Kelce’s wife’ and despite being ‘warned’ by Taylor, he affirms that he will continue to call her that at Super Bowl 2024

“I root for them to get married,” the sports commentator said during CBS Sports’ press day on Tuesday

Tony Romo is just as enamored with Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s romance as everyone else.

On Tuesday, the sports commentator, 43, revealed to reporters at CBS Sports’ press day that he referred to Swift, 34, as the Kansas City Chiefs tight end’s wife during two December games because he’s hoping the couple is in it for the long haul.

“I root for them to get married,” Romo said ahead of Super Bowl LVIII, per Entertainment Tonight. “‘Cause they’re not married, guys, I was joking.”

The former Dallas Cowboys player first referred to Swift as Kelce’s wife at the Bills vs. Chiefs game on Dec. 10. “As you see, Kelce’s wife, Taylor Swift, in the audience,” Romo said, before catching his mistake and correcting himself, adding, “Er, I’m sorry. Girlfriend!”

“Not yet,” another commentator replied while laughing at Romo’s mixup.

Then, during the Chiefs Christmas day game against the Las Vegas Raiders, Romo made the blunder again. In a video posted by ESPN at the time, he can be heard saying, “And his wife loves it, I mean, girlfriend,” Romo said in the video.

Play-by-play broadcaster Jim Nantz responded, “You’ve been down that road with that before.”

Happily, Swift didn’t hold the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s mistake against him. On the field after Kelce, 34, and the Chiefs locked up the AFC Championship, Swift and Romo were spotted chatting about their “different” skill sets.

“Well, we’re doing very different things, aren’t we?” Swift said with a smile, before adding: “It’s a different skill set.”

“Yeah,” Romo responded. They then gave each other a friendly fist bump.

At the press conference, Romo added that both Swift and Kelce have a “humble heart,” before expressing his appreciation for the “Anti-Hero” singer and her relationship with the tight end.

“I just sit there and, you know, think about her gift and her ability to create and make something that so many people love, and I think it’s just really unique to find or be around anybody on Earth who has the ability to have a talent at that level,” he said.

Romo continued, “And so Travis has the same thing as a tight end, and you know, I root for them. I like them both and I think they’re both amazing people.”

It looks like there’s no “Bad Blood” between Taylor Swift and Tony Romo!

The singer, 34, and the NFL commentator, 43, were spotted discussing their “different” skill sets as they caught up after the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. The catch-up comes weeks after Romo accidentally called Swift the wife of Chiefs’ player Travis Kelce instead of his girlfriend, twice.

In a video posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) Sunday, Swift and Romo chatted it up on the field at the M&T Bank Stadium after the game as they were joined by Travis’ mother Donna Kelce.

“Well, we’re doing very different things, aren’t we?” Swift said as she smiled and turned to Romo. “It’s a different skill set.”

“Yeah,” Romo responded. The pair then gave each other a friendly fist bump.

Romo first mistook Swift for Travis’ wife while commentating on the Chiefs’ Dec. 10 game against the Buffalo Bills at the Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

As the camera panned from Travis, 34, to a supportive Swift in the stands, Romo said, “As you see, Kelce’s wife, Taylor Swift, in the audience — er, I’m sorry. Girlfriend!” he added, correcting himself quickly.

“Not yet,” a second commentator replied, laughing at Romo’s blunder.

Romo made the second blunder of referring to Swift as Travis’ wife on Christmas Day during the second quarter of the Chiefs’ game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

In an Instagram video posted by ESPN at the time, a camera panned to Swift as she stood up in the stands and cheered on Travis.

“And his wife loves it, I mean, girlfriend,” Romo said in the clip.

“You’ve been down that road with that before,” broadcaster Jim Nantz responded.

The Chiefs defeated the Ravens in the AFC Championship on Sunday, with the win advancing the team to the 2024 Super Bowl, which will be held in Las Vegas on Feb. 11.

Swift was pictured kissing boyfriend Travis in celebration of his win after the game on the field.

The “Karma” singer made her way to the field to greet Travis, who was surrounded by his teammates and cameras, and planted a kiss on the NFL star. Travis’ parents Donna and Ed Kelce, meanwhile, stood alongside the couple during the sweet moment.
