Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift may be in the midst of their own thrilling love story now, but the NFL champ apparently had his eyes set on another pop star in the past.

In 2016, during an interview with AfterBuzz TV to promoting his E! series Catching Kelce, Kelce chose to "marry" Katy Perry over Swift while playing the game "Kiss, Marry Kill," which is a PG version of the game "F--k, Marry, Kill."

The options for "Kiss, Marry, Kill" were Swift, Perry and Ariana Grande.

"I don't want to kill any of them," Kelce shared before answering.

"Ariana is kill, unfortunately. I love you, but you're gone," he continued.

"Taylor Swift would be the kiss. And then Katy Perry would be the marry," Kelce finally answered.

Ironically, the "I Kissed a Girl" singer is supportive of Kelce and Swift's high-profile new romance.

When Vogue's Instagram account shared some cute photos of Kelce and Swift holding hands in New York City this past weekend, Perry commented, "I ship."

Over the weekend, Kelce and Swift were spotted together at the Saturday Night Live after party following Swift's SNL appearance to introduce her friend Ice Spice, who was the musical guest for Saturday's (Oct. 14) episode.

A source told Page Six that Kelce and Swift were spotted "talking and kissing" during the party.

"They do seem in love. She seemed really excited around him, and giddy and happy like a schoolgirl," the source added.
