Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce looked as loved-up as ever at Coachella last week, with Taylor wowing fans in sexy festi chic and Travis showing off a more, er, interesting style.

And an insider says the singer is determined to smarten up her boyfriend and make him the Hollywood superstar he’s desperate to be.

But while his wardrobe is a work in progress, he has at least agreed to shape up during the off-season from football.

“Fitness and diet are very important to Taylor. She’s obviously attracted to Travis physically and knows how image-conscious he is, too,” we’re told. “She’s all about clean eating and wants him to follow suit. She can’t bear the idea of him becoming a slob."

On his podcast New Heights – which Travis, 34, hosts alongside his lookalike brother Jason, 36 – the 6ft 5in tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs candidly confessed that he once weighed in at over 20st at college, blaming his favourite Bearcat pizza for him piling on the pounds.

The pizza – a signature dish of Adriatico’s restaurant in Cincinnati, Ohio – typically serves between ten-12 people, and has been described as “the size of a standard breakfast nook”.

Now, our source says Taylor, 34, has taken it upon herself to steer her boyfriend of nine months in a healthier direction, particularly as she’s at her peak fitness right now, as she is halfway through her gruelling Eras tour, which sees her performing for up to three-and-a half hours at each show.

The source says, “She’s made him agree to ditch sugar and processed carbs, and he’s really cutting back on his alcohol intake, too. She does not want him boozing during the week. She wants him watching everything he eats, and is having loads of healthy food delivered, so he won’t go off this diet. He’s used to eating and drinking whatever he wants in the off-season, but that’s just not going to fly any more.”

Speaking about his GF earlier this month, Travis – who’s on a break from football until the summer – said, “Any chance I can, [I’ll] show my support to her, knowing that she’s shown me all the support in the world throughout the season. It’s just been an amazing experience getting to know Tay.”

And our source says Travis is happy to take Taylor’s advice on board because he knows she has his best interests at heart.

“This is the first time in Travis’ life that he’s actually let a girlfriend micromanage him like this,” we’re told. “He’s rolling with it and doing his best to see the positive side because, at the end of the day, he knows she just wants the absolute best for him.”

And following on from reports in January that Travis “wants to lean into acting and hosting” when he retires from football, our source says Taylor is already dishing out the tough love to help him achieve his dream.

We’re told, “He’s got huge ambitions to be a big movie star and that means he needs to be camera-ready. He wants to be a Hollywood hunk and these leading actors work hard to maintain their physiques. Taylor wasn’t mean about it, but she definitely made it clear that he’s got to drop the extra weight, tone up and get a six pack.”

The source also hints that, as Travis and Taylor continue their world domination, we should expect something special any day now. They say, “They’ll be making their red-carpet debut soon and she wants them to look their best. After all, they are the hottest couple on the planet right now.”
