Part of the reason many have found Kelce to be the ideal man for Swift — aside from his charm and handsome features — is his ability to let her shine.

The source explained: "He understands the territory their relationship comes with and like he said, isn't letting any of the hoopla impact how they're growing together. Their relationship is about the two of them, and he sees Taylor for who she is and vice versa."

"I’ve never dealt with it," the NFL star admitted. "But at the same time, I’m not running away from any of it .... The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she’s just living, enjoying life."

"When she acts like that I better not be the one acting all strange," Kelce sweetly concluded.
