Travis Kelce’s life has become something of an open book since he started dating Taylor Swift and now fans can’t get enough knowing about the NFL star’s daily lifestyle.
As it turns out, the Kansas City Chiefs is big on treating his family and friends well – something that endeared Swift to him before they started dating in September last year.
One of those friends is Kumar Ferguson, who grew up with Kelce as one of his closest friends before becoming his official personal chief.
Kelce hired Ferguson back in 2016 and they have become inseparable since then, forging a great friendship.
Ferguson used to cook for all of their friends, which is what led to Kelce hiring him, according to the man himself.
“Growing up, I would cook for all the bros after we’d be hanging out all day. That kitchen table hangout has always been a center for all of us,” Ferguson said to Kansas City magazine. “We have definitely carried that tradition with us.”
Despite warnings about friends working together, Ferguson insists he and Kelce’s playful banter about his food helps keep their friendship alive and praised the NFL star for being a true professional.
“Being brothers is funny because we can throw shots at each other all day, but Travis is incredible when it comes to professionalism and just being on top of taking whatever he’s investing into,” he added.
As a tight end with a muscular frame, the 34-year-old football star is accustomed to consuming big portions to maintain muscle mass.
During the football season however, it is normal for Kelce to eat only three meals a day, with the amount of calories increasing to as much as 4,000 on game days and for practice.
Kelce’s favorite foods range from having oatmeal and fresh fruit to breakfast as well as seafood alfredo and steak for dinner.
He also has a taste for hot and tangy Hawaiian chicken wings and deep-fried lobster tails. Quite a pallate for the man hailing from Westlake, Ohio.
