SALT LAKE CITY – Emily Bushman, the wife of former BYU and current Kansas City Chiefs tight end Matt Bushman, entered the Taylor Swift/Travis Kelce conversation with a post on TikTok.

This NFL season, the music superstar has attended multiple Chiefs games in support of Kelce. Swift and the NFL star are rumored to be in a relationship.

Following Swift’s appearance at one of Kansas City’s games, Bushman shared her thoughts about the couple on social media.

“My husband is No. 89 on the Chiefs and I was just thinking I bet all of the Swifties wish that Travis was No. 89,” Bushman shared. “I mean it would be pretty cool if he was, to be honest.

1989 was the title of Swift’s fifth studio album. Bushman wears the No. 89 on his jersey while Kelce sports No. 87.

“Im absolutely here for this. Wishing them the best. For my sports and swiftie loving heart, its overwhelming,” Bushman captioned the TikTok video.
