Mama Kelce doesn’t shy away from playing favorites every now and then. Choosing a favorite child can be a daunting task for any parent, but for Donna Kelce, it seems to be a walk in the park.

Donna, the mother of renowned football brothers Jason and Travis Kelce, recently shared a candid insight into where her sentiments lie, despite always maintaining equal support for both sons and their respective teams.

The 71-year-old football mom, known for donning a mix of Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs merchandise to show support for Jason, 36, and Travis, 34, was recently probed about her current favorite.

This came after she had previously admitted that her eldest, Jason, held the coveted #1 spot in her heart.

During a special holiday episode of the New Heights podcast, Travis playfully asked his mom—a featured guest—whether her favorite had changed since she last declared it was Jason. To the tight end’s good-natured chagrin, Donna responded with a light-hearted, “Not yet.”

Amidst laughter, Travis exclaimed, “Ahhh, the burn!” while Jason basked in the joy of retaining his mama’s favorite status. Donna, attempting a bit of damage control, added, “I love you both just the same.”

Travis acknowledged the reasoning behind Jason being the favorite, as Donna had previously mentioned it’s because he has given her grandkids.

The Eagles center is a father to three children: Wyatt Elizabeth, 4, Elliotte Ray, 2 1/2, and Bennett Llewellyn, 10 months, with his wife Kylie Kelce.

Despite Travis not having children of his own yet, his relationship with superstar Taylor Swift has been making headlines.

Since going public with their romance during one of his games in the fall, the 12-time Grammy winner, 34, has become a familiar face in the Chiefs audience.

Often seen sitting with Donna at Arrowhead Stadium, Swift passionately cheers for her man from the crowd.

In a surprising twist, Swift, a Pennsylvania native and Eagles fan, switched allegiances when she began dating Travis.

While he might not be his mom’s favorite, there’s no doubt that Travis holds a special place in Taylor Swift’s heart.
