While the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for the Super Bowl, Jason Kelce and his family are planning for the “Kelce Bowl.” After all, you have Jason Kelce, a center for the Eagles, playing against his brother, Travis Kelce, who is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs ( can you even imagine being one of their parents right now?). Most exciting of all, while the brothers duke it out on the field, a new Kelce might join the family from the stands … or at least from a hospital nearby.
“[My wife] Kylie is bringing her OB because she’s going to be 38 weeks pregnant at the game,” Jason told Travis on their podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce.
This prompted a true bro moment:
“Dude! Dude,” his brother said as the thought of a niece being born on the big day set in.
“If she has a baby in the stadium, [the Kelce Bowl] is officially scripted,” Jason said.
Baby girl number three will be joining her older sisters, Wyatt, 3 and Elliotte Ray, almost 2. Wyatt recently rose to fame after Jason shared a baby monitor video of the little football fan singing the team’s anthem, Fly, Eagles, Fly the morning after a big win.
“E-A-G-L-E-S, Eagles!” she sang.
Jason wouldn’t be the only one to have a pregnant partner cheering them on during the Super Bowl. Just last year, Van Jefferson and Odell Beckham Jr. of the Los Angeles Rams were in the same situation. Jefferson’s wife did go into labor, and after winning the game, the dad rushed out of the stadium to meet his son (who the couple fittingly named Champ).
Jason and Travis then speculated over which sideline their parents will sit on. A tough decision for an excited mother and father, no doubt.
Donna Kelce told TODAY that though one of her sons will go home heart broken and “won’t have bragging rights at the Thanksgiving table,” it will still be an awesome and emotional game. The stress of making a decision is not getting to the proud mama. And besides, she joked, she at least knows she will be rooting for the offense.
“We’re going to really enjoy this, have a great time,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to it.”
And while she said Jason is certain she will be rooting for Travis, the baby of the family, she insists otherwise.
“I keep trying to tell him, ‘No, you’ve given me grandchildren,’ so we’ll leave it at that,” she said.
And with one more on the way, her answer is likely locked in?
