Life is good right now for Travis Kelce.
Not only did the All Pro tight end help lead the Kansas City Chiefs to their second Super Bowl win in the past four seasons, he got to do so by playing against his brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce.
The first ever matchup between brothers in the big game, combined with Kelce’s dominant playoff performance, have shone a bright spotlight on him in recent weeks.
Kelce is continuing to ride that wave into the offseason. During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, he announced that he will be hosting Saturday Night Live on March 4.
“I used to watch Saturday Night Live with my mother,” Kelce said, “and it’s an absolute honor and a privilege to be hosting SNL March 4.”

Kelce will be hosting the show alongside another Kelsea, music star Kelsea Ballerini.
While Kelce said he grew up watching Saturday Night Live, he admitted he’s “so nervous” for the appearance.
However, given his vocal nature, Kelce figures to be a good fit for the long-running comedy show.
Kelce’s personality was on display after the Chiefs’ win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game, when he said “Burrowhead my ass” during a postgame interview and later called out the Cincinnati mayor.
Kelce racked up 27 catches for 257 yards and four touchdowns across the Chiefs’ three playoff games. He caught six balls for 81 yards and a score during the Super Bowl.
