NextImg:Hear Taylor Swift sweetly encourage Travis Kelce’s pal Ross to feed a lion in Sydney

Look what she made him do.

Taylor Swift hyped up a nervous Ross Travis, who is her boyfriend Travis Kelce’s best friend, when it was his turn to feed a lion during their recent trip to the Sydney Zoo.

The former Kansas City Chiefs player, 31, posted a clip of the moment on Instagram Friday, which showed him hesitantly approaching a cage with the wild cat pacing behind it.

“Alright, Ross,” Swift, 34, can be heard telling Travis while recording a video on a smartphone.

The zookeeper then instructs the pro football player how to properly feed the lion and be it’s “best friend” without getting hurt.

Travis can then be seen sliding the stick of meat through a hole in the cage, prompting Swift to tell him, “Beautifully done,” as the NFL free agent lets out a huge sigh of relief.

One fan commented under the post, “Taylor recording is giving big sister vibes and I’m here for it ????.”

They spent some time together in stadium suites supporting the Chiefs tight end amid the NFL season, and it’s been known that Swift has gotten along well with Kelce’s inner circle.

“I understand now… That. Was. Amazing,” he wrote over an image of his outfit via his Instagram Story after the sold-out show.

Videos circulating online showed Swifties gave Travis and Kelce a warm welcome as they walked through the crowd to the VIP tent, while the latter high-fived fans and handed out guitar picks.

Swift, meanwhile, had to stay behind in Sydney, as she still has two more shows there on Sunday and Monday. She will then jet off to Singapore to continue the international leg of her Eras Tour.
