To the average person, a superstar like Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce would come bearing a shocking amount of limelight, but it certainly doesn’t phase his girlfriend Kayla Nicole. She has covered numerous sports even as a media personality.
If you’ve followed any of Kelce’s antics, you might assume that he scooped up Nicole on his E! Network reality dating show Catching Kelce. However, Kelce actually broke up with Maya Benberry, the “winner” of the show, prior to dating his current girlfriend.
