Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole: Inside the relationship, back together after multi-month split

Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole had a very modern way of meeting: Instagram.
“He Insta stalked me,” Nicole wrote in an Instagram post. “I dmd him. The end.”
The Chiefs tight end and his girlfriend first went public in May 2017, having attended receiver Jeremy Maclin’s wedding together. They stayed together for three years before an unexplained breakup midway through 2020, but they were back together by December 2020, just in time for the holidays.
According to Heavy.com, Nicole is an on-camera host for “NBA, BET, Global Grind, HotNewHipHop, XONecole, All Def Digital, [and] BallisLife.” She’s also a model and has participated in a number of beauty pagents. Her multiple careers came after Nicole attended Pepperdine University as a broadcast journalism major.
Nicole calls Kelce her “best friend.”

For those who can remember all the way back to 2016, you might recall Kelce had his own dating show. It was called “Catching Kelce,” and it aired on the E! Network that year. Kelce ended up with one of the contestants, Maya Benberry, but their relationship didn’t last very long.
Kelce and Nicole spend time together in football contexts and outside of the game. They’ve been together at various fashion events, something they’re both into.

The couple had a very good time together at the Super Bowl 54 victory parade. Shortly after Kelce was caught on video catching beer out of the sky from Mahomes, the party raged on with he and Nicole.
As mentioned above, it’s not clear what caused Kelce and Nicole’s breakup in 2020, but Kelce was clear they were back together in December. He spoke during an Instagram Q&A session with WNBA standout Chiney Ogwumike where he called Nicole his “girlfriend” again.
“She’s the absolute best,” Kelce said.
Before the temporary split, Kelce and Nicole spent time with Patrick Mahomes and his fiancee, Brittany Matthews, on a couples vacation at Lake Tahoe. At least as of right now, maybe quarterback and pass-catcher can join their significant others for another vacation, especially if there’s another Super Bowl ring to celebrate.
