While parents of NFL players who made it to the Super Bowl know who they are rooting for and where they’ll sit during the game, Donna Kelce has an interesting and unique dilemma. She’s the first mom to ever have two sons playing against each other in the big game. Donna, mom of Jason Kelce, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, and Travis Kelce, who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, has an exciting Sunday ahead!
Donna Kelce Has A Unique But Exciting Dilemma!
Donna and her husband Ed, have a tough choice to make – where will they sit during the Super Bowl. Mike Garafolo of the NFL network called the couple the “homecoming king and queen of Arizona this week.” He recently talked to the proud parents about the big day.
“You feel like America’s mom and dad this week,” Garafolo said. He then discussed where the two will be sitting during the game. “I hear, by the way, you’re sitting in the commissioner’s box on Sunday for the game.” Donna responded, “I took it up, he [Ed] decided to sit with the family.” Ed then added, “I’m a stands, I’m a blue collar grunt. I’ll sit in the stands.”
Donna said she feels it’s a good idea for her to sit in the commissioner’s box so she can pay attention to the game. “I’ll be up there. It’ll be fun. I think it’s a good idea otherwise I wouldn’t be able to see the game because of the media. I don’t think they’ll leave me alone,” she explained. “I’m just gonna kind of escape and watch the game in private. It will be awesome.”

There Is A Petition For Donna Kelce To Do The Coin Flip
America has spoken and they want to see Donna do the coin flip on Sunday! A petition was started about a week ago at change.org and has received more than 185K signatures for Donna to be the one to do the coin flip. Despite so many people voicing their opinion and signing the petition in favor of Donna, she won’t be out on the field this Sunday.
The league has given the honor of captaincy on four Tillman Scholars from the Pat Tillman Foundation, and Donna is more than okay about that decision. According to the Kansas City Star, Donna shared a message on the Chiefs Chicks Facebook page.
“Well I was touched that so many fans wanted me to flip the coin for the Super Bowl this year!!! Yeah, (well) that is not going to happen,” she wrote. “You know the military is more important than I am, and there’s a lot of people who put their blood, sweat and tears out there for the USA! I have not. I’ve been a banker and sat in a cushy chair for most of my career. The NFL is going to honor one of their own / Pat Tillman!!!”
Donna Kelce Has A Message For Sons Jason And Travis
A recent Instagram video that Donna shared sends a message to both her sons. “Boys, you’ve been working your whole lives to get to this moment,” she said. “And every early morning practice, late night homework session, and broken piece of furniture from the living room games was totally worth it.”
She continued, “Your family will always be here for you, cheering on the sidelines. We’re here in Arizona, we’ll be there on Sunday, and we’ll be there when all of this is over.”
