After winning the thrilling game, star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs Travis Kelce led his team to the glittering celebration fit for a king, breaking into 'We Are The Champions' in the locker room of the Hard Rock Stadium, capping off a storybook ending to an extraordinary NFL season.

Kelce was seen clutching a gold bottle of champagne as he celebrated his team's 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in one of the most dramatic Super Bowls in recent memory. Joining in Kelce's jubilation was his girlfriend, the global pop sensation Taylor Swift, who flew back from Japan where her Eras Tour took her, to join him.

They watched the game together with celebrities such as Blake Lively and Ice Spice from a lavishing VIP suite with its estimated seating costs of $1 million. The win was almost marred, however, when Kelce got into a heated exchange with head coach Andy Reid.

His frustration boiled over when he was sent off the field, and his emotional outburst and shove toward Reid even briefly threatened to paint him as the villain. It sure did sound exactly like Kelce's behavior in another game back on Christmas Day when Philadelphia Eagles played against Las Vegas Raiders.

His agitation was off the charts that time too.

Kelce's Game-Changing Performance

But in spite of the lost temper, it was simply an amazing play of Kelce in the second half of the game. His nine receptions for 93 yards, including one key run of 22 yards, contributed to the comeback and the eventual win of the Chiefs.

This allowed them to win the Super Bowl in consecutive years for the first time in 18 years after Tom Brady's Patriots in 2003-2004. After the victory, Kelce praised head coach Reid, lauding his importance in shaping him as a player and a person.

Kelce and quarterback Patrick Mahomes left Allegiant Stadium in high spirits, setting up more celebrations in Vegas. "We get to do it three times in a row. I'll see y'all next year," were Kelce's last words, with ambition, with the promise of new greatness.

With the Australian tour ahead, it's almost hard to remember the opening of the season when Kelce's love life was something done on the quiet. Standing together in the spotlight, Kelce's win is not just a personal victory but a sign of further glory.
