Taylor Swift has taken the NFL world by storm this year. However, ahead of Super Bowl 58 tonight, we get to know her parents, Scott and Andrea.

If you didn’t know, or somehow missed it this season, Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce are in a relationship. The dynamic duo has swept the NFL world with their pairing, and with the Chiefs taking on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58, their relationship is set to take center stage on the biggest night of the season.

While many around the world know Swift and her music, some may not know her parents, Scott and Andrea. We do a deeper dive into the parents who brought the world one of its biggest popstars ahead of Super Bowl 58.

Who Are Taylor Swift’s Parents?

Swift was raised by her father and mother, Scott and Andrea Swift. The two parents are no longer together and were divorced 23 years into their marriage together. Nevertheless, both remain squarely in their daughter’s life and are a source of inspiration for the singer in many of her songs.

Let’s do a deeper dive into each of the parents who shaped Taylor to be who she is today.

Scott Swift

Scott was born on March 5, 1952, in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. He played college football at Hawai’i and Delaware and is a known Philadelphia Eagles fan after growing up in Pennsylvania.

However, since Taylor’s relationship with Kelce has grown, Scott has been seen changing his allegiance a bit and wearing Travis’ Chiefs jerseys at games, maybe setting up a full-team switch to support his daughter and her partner.

As Taylor grew up and star grew with her, it was Scott who took the responsibility of staying home, taking care of her brother Austin while Taylor and Andrea were on the road as she began to tour. Scott worked in the financial world as a means of income as a stockbroker before becoming an advisor for Merrill Lynch.

In the current day, as their family grows Scott has joined Taylor on tour far more frequently than he did in the past and has helped her along the way as she navigates life as a superstar.

Andrea Swift

Andrea was born on Jan. 10, 1958, in Pennsylvania, but spent time during her childhood in Singapore as well as Texas. She is well known for being around Taylor during her music career, helping in any way she can while on the road, and being a welcoming face for Swift fans around the world.

Before helping Taylor with her career, Andrea was a marketing manager at an advertising agency. It is a skill that she has used to help propel Taylor’s career to new heights.

Swift has been open about her close relationship with her mom in the past, including in her song “The Best Day,” which pays tribute to their bond, and in a 2020 interview with Variety.

“Everyone loves their mom; everyone’s got an important mom,” she told the outer while her mom was undergoing treatment for a brain tumor.

“But for me, she’s really the guiding force. Almost every decision I make, I talk to her about it first. So obviously it was a really big deal to ever speak about her illness,” Swift added. Taylor opened up and shared her mom’s condition with her fans in 2019.

“I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you,” Taylor began. “Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.”

She went on to explain that during a routine check-up which she’d encouraged her mom to get, doctors discovered Andrea had cancer.

“I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know,” Taylor added. “She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.”
