It's been a few weeks since Travis Kelce joined his girlfriend Taylor Swift on stage at the Eras Tour, but his cameo is the gift that keeps giving. On the latest episode of the New Heights podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce, Travis got real about his thought process during the performance.

“It’s very unlike me. I’m not big, I don’t like going on stages. There were a lot of people out there, really didn’t feel at home,” Travis joked. “I initially mentioned to Tay, I was like, ‘How funny would it be if I just rolled out on one of the bikes during the 1989 [section]?’ She started laughing, she was like, ‘Would you seriously be up for doing something like that?’ I was like, ‘What? I would love to do that, are you kidding me?'” he explained. “I’ve seen the show enough, might as well put me to work here. And sure enough, she found the perfect part of the show for me to come in. There was no, like, bike in case I ran into somebody else or hit one of the dancers or anything. It was, like, the safest option.”

In case you somehow missed the magical moment, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end hopped on stage during The Tortured Poets Department era and introduced “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart” alongside two dancers. He fanned himself while Taylor had an ~outfit change~ and blew him a kiss before hopping into the fan-favorite song.

“Kam and Jan, part of the Tortured Poets era of the show, are trying to bring Tay back to life, right? Trying to bring her back to life, get her ready to perform the rest of the show, so to speak, knowing she can do it with a broken heart,” Travis explained on the pod. “It’s such a fun, like, playful part of the show.”

The brothers confirmed that it was the “perfect time” for the NFL star to “be a ham” with his Grammy-winning girlfriend on stage. “[I] just made sure I played with Tay and got her makeup right. It was a blast, I had so much fun,” Travis said. “It was an honor being on stage, obviously, with Taylor, but even Kam and Jan, knowing Kam’s brother Kalen Saunders, we played together in KC, won two Super Bowls together. … [He’s] one of my all-time favorite teammates, so to be able to rock the field with him and now rock the stage with his brother, you already know … it was an absolute blast.”

“Listen, the one thing I told myself is, ‘Do not drop the baby. Do not drop Taylor on your way over [to] this damn couch,'” he joked. “The golden rule was, ‘Do not drop Taylor. Get her to the couch safely.'” He also spoke about Taylor's professionalism while performing, saying, “You can do no wrong when Taylor’s on stage, she’s the best to do it. … Shout-out to Tay for letting me jump on stage with her. Who knows, might not be the last time.”
