From there, he noted that he exchanged some texts but eventually found themselves going on a date in New York. “We had already kind of been talking, so I knew we could have a nice dinner and, like, a conversation, and what goes from there will go from there,” Kelce noted. “Everybody around me [was] telling me: Don’t f–k this up! And me sitting here saying, Yeah — got it.”
