NFL stars Travis and Jason Kelce’s mom, Donna Kelce, is about to make history when her two sons take the field in Glendale, Arizona, at Super Bowl LVII to play against each other for the Lombardi Trophy.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame recently tweeted out a picture of the Chiefs and Eagles player’s mom wearing a jersey that on one side showed off the Philadelphia team’s colors and on the other side showed the Kansas City Chiefs.
The hall captioned the snap, “At Super Bowl LVII, Donna Kelce will officially become the first mother to have two sons play against each other in the Super Bowl.”

Speaking after the Chiefs 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, Travis joked that his “mom can’t lose” when he and his brother play against each other on February 12 in the big game.
“My mom can’t lose.”

Following the Eagles 31-7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at the NFC Championship game and the Chiefs win in the AFC Championship game, Donna tweeted that the upcoming game would be the “#HeightsHighandUCBearcatSuperBowl.” It was a reference to where both NFL superstars went to high school in Cleveland and later college at the University of Cincinnati, CNN noted.
Donna spoke before the Championship games on Sunday about the possibility of her two sons both making it into the Super Bowl and talked about the challenges that would present her as a mom.

“It’s your hopes and dreams coming true, but it’s your worst fears,” Donna told PJ Ziegler of FOX 8, the outlet noted. “Somebody is going to go home a loser, and neither one of them lose very well.”
Last postseason, Donna Kelce had to fly from Tampa to Kansas City on the same day to see @tkelce and @JasonKelce play ✈
She’ll only need to travel to one location to see them play in two weeks 😎

Donna also joked when she was speaking with NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz, because Travis and Jason are both on the Offensive side of the ball, there wouldn’t be any “fisticuffs” at the big game.
Travis is an All-Pro tight end with Kansas City and will be making his third trip to the Super Bowl, following a win in 2020 and loss the following year. Jason, who is an All-Pro center with Philadelphia, heads back for a second time, after being part of the Eagles Super Bowl-winning team in 2018.
