Donna Kelce was the most talked about mom heading into the 2023 Super Bowl. OK, maybe the second most (Hey, Rihanna!). And understandably so. This year’s Super Bowl was dubbed the “Kelce Bowl” if you’re a football fan (or “a Rihanna concert surrounded by football” if you’re a fan of the soon-to-be mom of two).
Donna Kelce’s sons, Travis and Jason, were playing against one another: Travis for the Kansas City Chiefs and Jason for the Philadelphia Eagles. As such, there were endless debates over which son she would root for. Through it all, she maintained that she would be rooting for the offense — a sly answer since both of her sons play offense — or, if she had to choose, it would be Jason.
“I keep trying to tell him [even though he thinks I’ll root for Travis], ‘No, you’ve given me grandchildren,’ so we’ll leave it at that,” she told TODAY.
Of course, only one Kelce son could win on Sunday, and it was Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs who took home the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy.
In a now-viral post-game video, Donna approaches Jason on the field. Once Jason sees her, he wraps her in a long, emotional embrace. We’re not crying, you’re crying!
“Mom’s always there 💚,” the NFL captioned the video, and commenters on Twitter couldn’t get over the touching clip.
“Takes him half a second to realize it’s mom and then he transforms into her little boy right before her eyes,” one person said, which is possibly the most accurate statement ever — you can literally see it happen, and we are so here for it.
“I wish Chris Stapleton could write a soundtrack to this,” said another, referencing the country star who sang the national anthem and is known for his songs that tug at your heartstrings.
While Donna was immensely excited for and proud of her boys, she told SheKnows in an exclusive interview that one of her sons would ultimately come out of the game as a “broken person.”
“It’s difficult when you put in that much effort, that many hours, at anything,” she told us. “And to not get the end result you want is very frustrating, of course. So there’s nothing that I can say or help them with, to make it any better.”
“All I can do is tell them I love them,” she told SheKnows.
Travis echoed the same sentiment after the game.
“In a situation like that, there’s not a lot you can say to a loved one,” Travis Kelce said. “You joke around all the time and say that you want to beat your brother on the biggest stage ever, but it’s a weird feeling. There’s nothing really I could say to him, other than I love him and he played a hell of a year, a hell of a season.”
Jason may be coming off a big L, but he should have a major W in the near future. His wife Kylie is due with their third daughter who could arrive any day now. So while they may be different, both Kelce brothers will have bragging rights at the Thanksgiving table this year.
