Who Is the Chiefs Owner’s Daughter? Meet Gracie Hunt, Social Media Star and Miss Kansas USA 2021

Who is Gracie Hunt? We take a closer look at the Kansas City Chiefs' heiress and how she picked out a birthday present for Taylor Swift.

Gracie Hunt, who is the daughter of Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt and Tavia Shackles, has created a strong following on social media. She has 452,000 followers on Instagram and almost 150,000 followers on TikTok.

Hunt has also built a friendship with Taylor Swift, as their paths have crossed at games this season.

Who Is Gracie Hunt?

Gracie is the eldest of three siblings and is considered by many to be the Chiefs’ heiress. This February, Forbes estimated the Hunt family’s worth at $24.8 billion, up from their estimate of $15.3 billion four years ago.

Hunt played soccer in high school and college but had to stop playing because of concussions. She told Maxim in 2023, “Soccer helped build my relationship with my dad. He was my first coach when I was little, and those are sweet memories I’ll always cherish.”

After Hunt stopped playing soccer, she transitioned to pageants, a passion of her mother. Tavia, Gracie’s mother, won the 1990 Miss Missouri Teen USA and 1993 Miss Kansas USA pageants. Gracie Hunt had success on the pageant circuit as she won the 2021 Miss Kansas USA, the same event her mother won. Hunt reached the semifinals of the 2021 Miss USA competition.

Gracie Hunt told People in 2021, “Pageantry is a sport; there’s so much that goes into it behind the scenes that you might not realize or know whether it’s interview prep, walking prep. Learning to walk on a stage in those heels is something that I did not realize the skill it took until I got myself into it, especially having come off of the soccer field, wearing cleats all the time.”

Hunt founded “Breaking Barriers Through Sports” in 2016 with the goal of giving people a positive identity and confidence through athletics and living a healthy lifestyle. She has also been an ambassador for the Special Olympics since 2015.

Hunt Buys Taylor Swift a Birthday Present

Hunt told the New York Post’s Page Six that she was with her mother at a Neiman Marcus event when they were able to see an exclusive collection from Judith Lieber. They saw a Minaudieres Swarovski microphone purse worth almost $5,000.

They reached out to Travis Kelce to see if he wanted them to buy the purse for him so he could give it to Taylor Swift as a birthday present. Kelce wasn’t sure if Swift would like the purse and passed on buying it.

Hunt said, “My mom was like, ‘Well, if you’re not [buying it], this is our birthday present for Miss Taylor because she needs this.'” Hunt and her sister, Ava, presented Swift with the present at a Chiefs game.

Hunt told the New York Post about getting to know Swift, “It has been so much fun. She is absolutely incredible, bright, beautiful, so talented, and it’s been so fun for all of America to cheer for this love story!”
