Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, two names that have been dominating headlines with their high-profile romance, are now at the center of swirling engagement rumors. Dave Portnoy, founder of Barstool Sports and an outspoken supporter of the couple, has made a bold prediction that the NFL star will propose to the pop icon within the next six months.

In a conversation with Page Six, Portnoy expressed his belief that an engagement is imminent. "It's got to be coming soon. It seems like it's ramping up. I would say within six months -- it feels like that," Portnoy speculated. His comments reflect the sentiments of many fans who have been closely following the couple’s public relationship.

Portnoy, speaking from his "outside" perspective, noted that Swift and Kelce appear to be heading towards marriage faster than even they might have anticipated. He dismissed any notions that the couple might already be secretly engaged, stating, "With how public they seem to be, they would very much want that to be a big show." Despite his confidence in the impending proposal, Portnoy emphasized that his primary wish is for Swift's happiness.

The engagement rumors gained traction after Kelce made a notable appearance during a transition skit at Swift's The Eras Tour in London. This cameo fueled speculation, with Portnoy humorously adding, "I don't know, if I was in the crowd, like, I'm not there to see Travis necessarily. I can see him on Sundays in the NFL. I'm there to see Taylor. Like if I go to an NFL game, I don't know if I want to see Taylor take a snap, but they're head over heels in love. So whatever makes mother happy, I'm good with."

Despite the growing public fascination, Swift and Kelce have reportedly grown weary of the relentless engagement speculation. Insiders revealed to Life & Style that constant inquiries from friends and family are starting to take a toll on the couple. "The constant questioning from friends and family is starting to really get them down," a source confirmed. "Not a day goes by they don't get hit with gentle hints and questions. The social media and fan chatter about an engagement is bad enough, but he also gets questions from friends, and the more he's pressured, the more he withdraws."

Swift, who is currently focused on completing her The Eras Tour in Europe and the remaining U.S. leg before the year ends, has reportedly asked her friends to stop bringing up the topic. "Her friends bring it up all the time, and she's ordered them to stop mentioning it. The constant questions are not helping. She's 100 percent sure that Travis is The One, and she's just hoping the proposal happens soon, because she wants to get on with the next stage of their lives," the insider added.

Swift and Kelce's relationship has been in the public eye since they announced their romance. They first met on the set of Good Morning America in November 2018, where Swift performed with her band, the Pistol Annies, and Kelce was working as security. The couple married on January 26, 2019, after a brief but intense courtship, though they kept their nuptials private until three weeks after the ceremony.
