These two are living a teenage dream, and Katy Perry is here for it.

After Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift filled in the blank spaces of their rumored relationship with an official, hand-in-hand date night in New York City Oct. 14, the “Last Friday Night” singer didn’t hold back on making her opinion known.

In fact, after Vogue posted a picture of the NFL player and pop star on Instagram and dubbed the evening a hard launch, Katy took the opportunity to give her stamp of approval by commenting, “I ship.”

And she wasn’t the only one sounding off their support in the comments. One fan wrote, “HE’S SUCH A GENTLEMAN,” while another added, referencing another famous singer-athlete pairing, “The Victoria and David Beckham of our times.”

The evening saw both Taylor and Travis make special appearances on Saturday Night Live—marking the show’s first episode back since the end of the writers’ strike—in addition to a post-game at the show’s after-party and a dinner-date at Nobu the following day. In each of the pictures from the evening, the pair are looking absolutely smitten as they hold hands.

This “hard launch” comes weeks after the pair got the rumor mill turning when Taylor made her first NFL appearance at Travis’ Kansas City Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 24. Since then, the “Cruel Summer” singer has attended two more games, most recently sitting alongside the tight end’s mom Donna Kelce as the Chiefs defeated the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium on Oct. 12.

And though Travis has made it clear he wants to respect the his and Taylor’s privacy and won’t speak to their relationship publicly, he did reveal how he’s been feeling about the budding romance.

“As all the attention comes, it feels like I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl—and right now, even more on top of the world,” the 34-year-old said during an Oct. 6 press conference. “You’ve got a lot of people that care about Taylor, and for good reason.”
