The worlds of sports and celebrity are often intertwined. While some of the most famous celebrity sports couples of the past decade are no longer together – from Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen to Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn – the internet practically explodes each time a new "it couple" emerges, blending stardom and athleticism.
This past weekend, the world lost its collective mind when Taylor Swift showed up at a Kansas City Chiefs game to support Travis Kelce after months of dating rumors. The pair were seen leaving the venue together, fueling the media frenzy.

While it's unclear if the two are actually dating, sources have confirmed that Swift and Kelce are "hanging out." So, Swifties may expect either a happily ever after for "Traylor" or a future breakup album with lots of clever tight end references.
In the spirit of Traylor, let's take a look at some of the biggest celebrity sports couples who, as of this writing anyway, are still together.
