Kylie Kelce Talks About the First Time She Met Travis Kelce

“Jason and I had been together for quite some time before I actually got to meet Travis,” Kylie said

Kylie Kelce hit the brother-in-law jackpot with Travis Kelce!

While Kylie admits it took a bit of time to meet her husband Jason Kelce’s younger brother, she says she heard plenty of great things about him prior to that day.

On Friday, June 14, the 31-year-old mother of three appeared as a guest on Sterling Holmes’ Stacking the Box show. While there, Holmes asked Kylie about the first time she met the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34.

“Jason and I had been together for quite some time before I actually got to meet Travis,” she told Holmes. “I’m talking at least through a full football season.”

According to Kylie, the delay for the introduction to the newly retired Philadelphia Eagles center’s sibling was due to their football schedules not matching up.

She said it wasn’t until both brothers were in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl that she had a chance to finally meet the person she’d heard so much about.

“It was a full dive into the Kelce pool because I had never been on a Kelce family vacation, and that turned into one,” she recalled. “So we had the entire Kelce family together, which is rare, but I had received months and months and months of Jason talking up his brother.”

Throughout this time, Jason, 36, couldn’t contain his pride, telling his wife “what an amazing person” Travis was.

Jason would also mention “how kind and generous and loving” the NFL player was. And as Kylie put it, Travis “lived up to” all the pleasant things Jason had said.

“He is hilarious, and is the best uncle and an outstanding brother-in-law,” the former field hockey player said.

The Kelces are a close-knit family with two superstar athletes as siblings — both of whom have won Super Bowls with their teams, and one of whom is dating a global pop star.

Earlier this year, their mother Donna Kelce spoke exclusively to PEOPLE about the wild ride it’s been as they’ve learned to navigate new heights of fame.

“It’s been really surreal and a fun ride to be on,” Donna told PEOPLE in January.

“Being able to be with my kids — the experiences, the places, enjoying people I’ve never met before. And I’m very happy they get to enjoy the fruits of their labor, because it’s [been] a tough ride to get where they are now.”

She added that her boys became close to one another at an early age, partially because they had no cousins to play with.

“My brother didn’t have any children, and my husband’s sister didn’t have any,” Donna told PEOPLE. “[Jason and Travis] used to yell at me because they didn’t have any cousins to play with on Christmas. We were tight-knit, always trying to help each other as much as we could.”

“They’re each other’s biggest fan,” she said.
