Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is happy. No, he is much more than that. He is “full of life.”

And, really, you’d be jumping for joy too if A) Taylor Swift was your girlfriend; b) Your girlfriend joined the billionaires club; And C) you had enough Super Bowl rings you could wear, your billionaire girlfriend could wear one, and you’d still have an extra rings to stuff in the pocket of your “casual” velvet pants.

“I’m enjoying life right now,” Kelce told People while vacationing in the Bahamas with, you guessed it, T-Swizzle.

Three Super Bowl wins should be enough to lift you up in life. In his most recent win with the Chiefs – a 25–22 overtime win over the 49ers – he caught nine passes for 93 yards. But Swift was never far from his mind.

He said of his relationship with the pop star in early February: “It’s been a roller coaster that I didn’t expect. But I’m enjoying every single ride, baby.”

He told People he really likes life “full throttle” — he’s busy touring the KC area with Kelsey Jam’s comeback tour next month. He says that it is not just a music festival but also a food festival. The Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, Kansas, just west of Kansas City, on May 18 will feature Lil Wayne, Diplo, 2 Chainz and some probably very good barbecue.

Swift could definitely buy a little barbecue. Pop’s name has been included among the richest people in the world in the latest list of Forbes. Forbes said she became a billionaire in October – 14th of 14 celebrity billionaires on the outlet’s list – largely due to the massive success of her Eras Tour.

If you are not wasting life, you might as well be wasting money.
