“We stay together and try to help each other as much as we can,” Donna tells PEOPLE of her sons amid their respectively busy NFL schedules
Though Travis and Jason Kelce play for different teams, they were born teammates for life.
When speaking about her latest partnership with Heluva Good!, Donna Kelce tells PEOPLE exclusively about what’s kept her family so close over the years amid her sons’ respectively busy schedules as professional NFL athletes.
“We’re very, very small. We’re tight-knit,” Donna tells PEOPLE exclusively of her brood. “We stay together and try to help each other as much as we can.”
The mother of two broke down her family tree, explaining that her brother and her husband’s sister didn’t have any children. Therefore, Donna says, it was “just the two boys” — to which she admits, “growing up they used to yell at me because they didn’t have any cousins to play with on Christmas.”
Therefore, Donna and her boys always had each other’s backs. “We stay together and try to help each other as much as we can,” she says.
However, she concedes that the extend of how much family time they get to enjoy together isn’t what it used to be due to Travis’ schedule as tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs and Jason’s busy life as center for the Philadelphia Eagles with three kids.
