Donna Kelce is all set to become the first mother to have two sons competing against one another in a Super Bowl game. She is divided on who should take home this year's Lombardi Trophy and will be supporting both her sons. Although there have been numerous sibling rivalries in the NFL, such as Peyton and Eli Manning or Tiki and Ronde Barber, no siblings have ever faced off in the championship game of football.
On February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, Super Bowl LVII will pit younger brother Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, against center Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles, per TODAY. While both sons will actively participate in the big game, they won't be on the field simultaneously, because they are both offensive players for their respective teams.
"They've been dreaming about this since they were so young," proud mama Kelce said. Kelce had to make a difficult choice over championship weekend because her sons were competing for several teams in various cities. Before going somewhere in Philadelphia to watch Travis play on television, Kelce shared that she intended to attend Jason's game in person at Lincoln Financial Field.
The eager mother is accustomed to the pressure of the postseason and traveling to games in several locations. Ahead of traveling to Kansas City for Travis' game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, she started last year's playoff Sunday in Tampa for Jason's afternoon contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After her boys' teams secured their Super Bowl berths on January 29, 2023, the proud mother posted a tribute to their alma maters. She wrote, "#HeightsHighandUCBearcatSuperBowl," referencing both sons attending Cleveland Heights High School and the University of Cincinnati.
Travis remarked to Daily Non-Pareil, late Sunday night that "my mom’s going to win either way." But that also means she’s going to lose either way. One boy will be overjoyed, and the other, defeated. "It's your hopes and dreams coming true, but it's your worst fears," Donna said to Sports Illustrated, adding, "Somebody is going to go home a loser, and neither one of them lose very well."
She'll wear the Eagles and Chiefs split jersey that was made for her a few years ago. She decides to take the following stance: At their heart, both of her boys are competitors. Both have previously accepted their defeats, Travis more frequently due to his big brother's ability to overwhelm him. She can't think of a more suitable method for that concept to be expressed on the biggest platform possible than as the boys create NFL history right now. Whoever loses, her heart will grieve for them. But of course, she will celebrate the one that wins!
