In a recent interview, Gracie Hunt, daughter of Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, expressed her admiration for Taylor Swift and her influence on Kansas City and female NFL fans.
Swift’s relationship with NFL tight end Travis Kelce has not only captured the attention of football enthusiasts but has also contributed positively to the Chiefs’ fanbase.
During her appearance on Outkick The Morning with Charly Arnolt, Gracie Hunt shared her excitement about the impact Swift and Kelce’s relationship has had on the city.
“First of all, I think we’re all so excited to see two such phenomenal people happy,” said Gracie.
“It’s so easy for us to cheer for because they’re so wonderful for each other. And it’s just been so fun to watch this love story unfold. That’s just been so special to see, how happy they are.”
Gracie highlighted the broader influence of Swift’s presence at Chiefs games, especially on young female fans.
“So many young, especially female fans, [are] watching football, interested in football, maybe considering playing flag football, and also cheering for the Chiefs,” she noted.
The “Anti-Hero” singer has become a familiar face at Chiefs games, contributing to a surge in female attendance.
Gracie expressed her joy at seeing more female fans in the stands and emphasized the positive values that football imparts.
Gracie acknowledged Swift’s impact on Kansas City, stating, “She is wonderful, beautiful, brilliant, all the things. And it’s been so much fun to get to have her coming to Chiefs games.”
Notably, the Chiefs’ owners presented Swift with a special gift to celebrate her birthday, as shared by Gracie on Instagram.
In the post, Gracie thanked those involved in acquiring the gift, revealing it to be a Judith Leiber Couture microphone clutch. This extravagant accessory, retailing for $4,995, added a touch of glamour to Swift’s birthday celebration.
Gracie’s sister, Ava Hunt, and mother, Tavia Hunt, also shared snaps with Swift, showcasing the purple gift box with a tag reading, “To Taylor, from the Hunt family.”
The Hunt family’s connection with Swift and their enthusiastic support for her relationship with Kelce have added an extra layer of excitement to the Chiefs’ season, making it a captivating story both on and off the field.
