Petition pushes for Donna Kelce to do Super Bowl LVII coin toss as sons face off: Sign the petition here

The petition says it would be 'a great way to show the super proud mama some amazing appreciation and love.'

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Donna Kelce is making Super Bowl history as the first mom to ever have two sons -- Travis and Jason Kelce -- facing off in the big game, which is why a Change.org petition was hoping to make her moment even more special.

The petition was calling for Donna to do the honorary coin toss before the Philadelphia Eagles battle the Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl LVII as "a great way to show the super proud mama some amazing appreciation and love."

It was signed by nearly 32,500 people as of 4:45 a.m. Friday, Feb. 3, but that total has since exploded to more than 166,550 signatures as of 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Despite the petition's plea, it was announced that four Pat Tillman Foundation Scholars will serve as the honorary coin toss captains at the big game.

The Kelce family has ties to Northeast Ohio as both were raised in Cleveland Heights. Earlier this week, Donna talked with the TODAY show about her excitement for the Super Bowl.

“I’ll just be so elated. Probably some tears," Donna Kelce said during the interview Wednesday morning. "It will just be a very, very emotional moment.”

At Super Bowl LVII, Donna Kelce will officially become the first mother to have two sons play against each other in the Super Bowl.

But which team is she rooting for? She was asked that exact question during the conversation – and her answer was priceless.

“The offense,” Donna Kelce replied with laughter. “Every time somebody has the ball.”
