They continued that his friends have witnessed the Midnight crooner being "down to earth" when she is with his family and friends.
The tipster went on to say that Swift, 33, and Kelce, 34, have many things in common; they are “really hard workers” and have a mutual respect for each other’s career," they explained.
“He acknowledges her art is hers, and he has what’s his,” they shared, “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.”
The source pointed out that the 12-time Grammy award winner keeps her relationship “about the two of them,” and that the football star “sees Taylor for who she is and vice versa.”

He told the outlet that he has “never dated anyone with that kind of aura about them.”
The footballer added, “I’ve never dealt with it. 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.”
Kelce addressed how much Taylor has to deal with, saying, “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,” he concluded.
