To be quite honest with you, I was not sold on the Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce love story until September 30, 2023. Before you come for me, I found the entire spectacle delightful as a Swiftie and entertainment writer, I just wasn’t convinced the ship was going to turn into anything serious…until the 33-year-old pop star added a new player to her girls’ night out roster: Brittany Mahomes.
One day before the Kansas City Chiefs were set to play the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium—a game Swift is reportedly planning to attend—she spent the evening at Italian restaurant Emilio’s Ballato with bestie Blake Lively, recent regular Sophie Turner, and rookie Brittany Mahomes.
For all you football fanatics getting briefed on Swiftie culture, let’s talk friendship STATS. Blake Lively is a 36-year-old actor best known for her starring role on Gossip Girl. She’s married to Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds and has four children—three of whom have been name-checked in Swift’s song, “Betty.” Lively and Swift have been friends for many years and the actor even directed Swift’s music video for “I Bet You Think About Me.”
Blake Lively was sunshine, Taylor Swift was midnight rain.
Then there is Sophie Turner. You probably know her as the 27-year-old actor behind Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark. She is currently in the middle of a divorce with Joe Jonas, who briefly dated Swift back in 2008 (and famously broke up with her via voicemail). Since news of the split broke in early September, Turner has been spotted with Swift multiple times and is reportedly staying in the singer’s Tribeca apartment while she works out custody of her two daughters.
Twice in one week!

Brittany Mahomes, football fans know, is the 28-year-old wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, with whom she shares two children. But she’s not just a famous WAG, she’s also a former professional soccer player, businesswoman, and founding co-owner of the Kansas City Current women’s soccer team.
This is straight-up Friday Night Lights.
This dynamic group of women was photographed enjoying their evening, with Swift and Lively holding hands in another set of mismatched looks: Swift wearing a simple black minidress and matching accessories, while Lively donned a leather midiskirt in multiple earth tones, which she wore with slouchy suede boots, a crop top, and jacket. Turner looked impossibly cool in a matching brown leather set and black knee-high boots. Mahomes, of course, fit right in with her black leather pants, white tank top, and cropped varsity jacket with leather sleeves. You can see more photos here.
In the wise words of the Spice Girls, “If you wanna be my lover, you’ve gotta get with my friends.” Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes have been close since Patrick was drafted by the Chiefs in 2017. When asked about meeting Swift after last week’s football game, he said, “She’s really cool. Good people. But like Trav said, imma let them have their privacy and just keep it moving.”
Meanwhile, sources recently told TMZ that Taylor Swift and Brittany Mahomes really hit it off at the party. No matter what happens between Swift and Kelce, this may be the start of another beautiful friendship.
“They’re getting closer and closer every day.”
