The budding romance between Taylor Swift and NFL star Travis Kelce has set the internet ablaze in recent weeks.
The 35-year-old was asked if there was any particular celebrity that he would like to feature on the podcast.
Making a gentle reference to his brother's relationship, he replied: “I’m gonna keep it easy. I can’t say Taylor Swift, come on, that’s too obvious [and] Travis will kill me.”
Instead of picking a celebrity option, Jason opted for something a bit closer to home, saying: “We gotta get Aunt Judy."
The two brothers started their podcast together last year, focussing primarily on NFL commentary.
But since Travis began dating Taylor Swift, the discussion has understandably sometimes shifted to recounting his outings with the singer, as well as her attendances at Kansas City Chiefs' games, where Travis plays.
Jason has also expressed his admiration for how well Travis has risen to the role of boyfriend in his blossoming relationship with Taylor Swift.
The news that the pair had started dating has given Swifties plenty to talk about in recent weeks, and the consensus appears to be one of approval of Travis.
Although Swift has yet to publicly address the relationship, the pair have been regularly spotted out and about together, and sources close to Swift have said that she seems to be falling for Kelce.
A big moment for the pair came when Swift made her first appearance in a box at a Kansas City Chiefs game. The star was seen sharing a box with Travis' mom, Kylie Kelce.
Fans of Taylor Swift have expressed their happiness at her and Travis' relationship.
Swift is currently in the midst of her enormous Eras Tour, which is seeing her hopping all over the globe with enormous stadium dates.
The live show has also been accompanied by a film release, with fans thronging to see the movie.
Travis had previously spoken about how he had felt a little 'butthurt' after he was unable to hand Swift a friendship bracelet he had made for her with his number on at a performance in the Eras Tour.
He said: “I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows, because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings."
