Donna Kelce is spilling the secret behind her son Travis Kelce's bold fashion sense.

The mom of two, 71, appeared on the Wednesday, May 8, episode of The Martha Stewart Podcast, where she revealed why the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, pays close attention to his style choices.

"He's a fashionista," explained Donna, noting that his "image" and what he looks like is "very important."

"But not so much to be perfect," she continued. "It's more to put a smile on people's faces. At times, I mean, he'll dress the way he needs to, but most of the time, he's doing it to make people laugh or talk. And he loves being at the center of attention, which we all know that."

After host Martha Stewart asked if she would consider her son a showoff, she laughed and replied, "Yes, he is. And he has a very, very generous, good heart."

Donna told the celebrity chef that she believes Travis and her older son Jason Kelce's unique qualities were evident from a young age.

"When I go back and look at pictures when they were little or movies from video, I see Travis always dancing and shaking his behind. And, Jason always with a bat or a ball in his hand," she said. -

"They both love sports very much and very much you could tell their personalities, how much they cared and focused on things."

Travis has also showcased his love of fashion on and off the field.

During the NFL season, the football star made waves by wearing various stylish outfits to each of his games.

In September, he wore a baby blue and white denim jacket and matching jeans from KidSuper Studio to the Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears.

When the team faced off against the Los Angeles Chargers a month later, he wore a red plaid shirt with cream squares and a front pocket fromICECREAM, Pharrell Williams' luxury streetwear brand under Billionaire Boys Club.

To play at the Super Bowl, Travis took his game-day look up a level by attending the event in a black sequin game-day suit by Amiri.
