Travis and Swift’s relationship has been going strong for months, yet it hasn't been without its unique challenges, particularly for the star athlete.

The attention the two have received since they began their whirlwind romance has been overwhelming, prompting Travis,  who is comparatively less popular than Swift, to drastically change his accommodations.

Before entering a relationship with Swift, Travis resided in a modest home in Kansas City. However, facing the challenge of unsolicited visitors waiting on his premises and concerns about accessibility to the public, he opted to move for "safety reasons” after beginning his romance with the pop star.

Travis’ new home is a $6 million sprawling mansion that boasts six bedrooms and baths and covers 17,000 sq ft of prime property. It also comes with the added advantage of being located in a gated community, a top priority for Travis.

However, despite moving to a more secure place, Travis still found himself stalked to his home by a crazed member of the public.

“The first day he moved into his new house, a gated community, somebody knocks on the back window of the house,” Jason said about the frightening encounter.

For the Philadelphia Eagles veteran, he and his brother have barely had a break from the media attention since being thrown into the world of Swift and are still adjusting to it all.

Kelce is expected to spend time in the NFL offseason supporting Swift just like she did at 13 games over his season.

“Football is everything to him. He lives and breathes it. But he’s ready for some downtime now and to show up for Taylor the way she has for him,” an insider told People magazine. “The attention on them is definitely a lot, but Travis has done a great job deflecting and focusing on what’s important.”

Swift is currently in Melbourne, Australia, for her Eras Tour, her first stop on the road since she resumed the tour.

Although Travis is yet to join her, he made sure her arrival in the country was memorable. He ordered 250-eternity roses for Valentine's Day to her hotel room and other floral delights that came later on, which reportedly cost around $14,000.
