During nearly a year together, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have been the poster couple for celeb-studded date nights, high-profile outings and glam jet-setting. But a Life & Style insider exclusively claims Taylor is swiftly entering a new era — one that involves settling down. “Taylor is head over heels in love with Travis,” says the insider. “She doesn’t want to waste more time, so she needs to make sure they’re on the same page about getting married.”

The insider says that Taylor, 34, has made her intentions clear to Travis, also 34 — after learning from the missteps of her last relationship. During her six-year romance with actor Joe Alwyn, Taylor was angling for a proposal, says the insider, before finally accepting it wasn’t in the cards. “Taylor changed so many things to accommodate Joe — she moved to London and agreed to reel in her outgoing personality because he was more of a homebody,” adds the insider. “They’d spoken about starting a family and she patiently waited for him to propose. Every time Joe would arrange a romantic vacation or quiet dinner, she imagined the time had come. But after almost seven years, Joe was dragging his feet and she had to walk away.”

Taylor doesn’t plan to be so patient with Travis, continues the insider. “She’s not expecting a proposal tomorrow, but she does want to know he’s as serious as she is when it comes to marriage.” He’s certainly a 180 from Joe. Dropping by the “Bussin’ With the Boys” podcast after he jumped onstage with Tay during her London show, the NFL tight end seemed to take a jab at the reclusive actor. “It’s like, you want to keep things private, but at the same time, I’m not here to hide anything,” he said. “That’s my girl, that’s my lady, I’m proud of that!”

Joe, whom Taylor dated between 2016 and 2023, also has some words for his ex’s new man, according to a source.

“The only advice Joe would probably ever give Travis is to keep treating Taylor right so that he doesn’t become fodder for some song, because her fans will never let him live it down!” an insider exclusively told Life & Style in a story published on June 27.

“Joe knew what he was getting into when he was dating Taylor. Her history regarding writing songs about past relationships wasn’t a problem for him,” the insider later continued.

Taylor and Travis have steamrolled through their relationship and made many memorable milestones. Though they keep the personal details of their relationship private, the pair mixed business with pleasure when Travis joined Taylor on stage at Wembley Stadium in London on June 23.

“It’s such a fun and playful part of the show,” Travis told brother Jason Kelce during the Wednesday, July 3, episode of their “New Heights” podcast. “It was, like, the perfect area or perfect time for me to go up there, just be a ham, and have some fun, not only with her, Kam [Saunders] and Jan [Ravnik], but the crowd and really try and get everybody excited for the rest of the show. It was awesome. I had an absolute blast.”
