Travis Kelce wasn't the only one having the time of his life at this year's Kentucky Derby.

The footballer became the spectator when he swung by Churchill Downs on Sat., May 4, but he didn't duck the attention from fans as he made his way to the stands, making one little girl's day as he paused to accept a gift from her.

Olivia Grace Blackwell made a beautiful gold and white friendship-style bracelet, reading "KY Derby," to celebrate the event, which perfectly coordinated with her airy white dress and quintessential derby hat, but when she caught sight of the tight end walking through the crowd with his sleek all-white pinstripe suit on full display, she told her mom, Holly Blackwell, that she wanted to gift it to him.

In a compilation of clips from their day at the Derby, set to Taylor Swift's "You're on Your Own Kid," which reignited the friendship bracelet craze, Olivia was able to have a quick but heartfelt interaction with Kelce as she dropped the bracelet into his hand as he walked past.

The Chiefs legend immediately turned it to read, telling the two, "Oh, I love it—a little KYD." Holly tells Parade that he also noted, "Taylor would love this," telling the young girl that he'd show it to the "Karma" songstress.

He smiled at Olivia in the video, reaching through the crowd to pull her close to pose for a photo. Her own smile couldn't be wider as she came completely into view for the first time, glancing at him quickly before turning to look at another lens out of frame.

The towering NFL star leaned down to come closer to her height, spinning the bracelet between his fingers before he eventually slid it on his own wrist, where it could be seen in photos of the two shaking hands.

When an account dedicated to the singer reposted part of the video, fans fawned over how "kind and thoughtful" the athlete always is, with one pointing out the fact that "he always reads the bracelets" first, rather than just "shov[ing] it in his pocket."

"[He] is so sweet to everyone that approaches him," another agreed, while someone else replied, "He is so kind and gracious ❤️."

It certainly adds another point to his score when it comes to the "boyfriend of the year" competition.
