Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews are having a baby! The Super Bowl LIV MVP, 24, and his fitness trainer fiancee, 25, announced the exciting news on Instagram with photos of a sonogram pic on Sept. 29. This marks the couple’s first child together.
Brittany’s pregnancy news comes nearly one month after the couple’s engagement on September 1. Patrick surprised Brittany with a stunning (estimated $150k) square-cut diamond ring — right after he received his Super Bowl LIV ring during a formal ceremony with the Kansas City Chiefs in Missouri. The star quarterback got down on one knee in a decorated suite at Arrowhead Stadium, where the team plays its home games. The newly engaged couple posed for photos inside the suite, which featured a white fur carpet surrounded by rose petals. Brittany was greeted with a lit-up sign that read: “Will you marry me?” Additionally, the room was filled with white flowers and dainty candles.
“On a day that was meant to celebrate you, you turned it into celebrating us,” Brittany captioned an Instagram post with photos from the special moment. “It’s always us, it’s always you and me. The words you looked into my eyes and said to me at this moment, will NEVER leave my mind! You made this day perfect, you took my entire breath away and I could not have imagined anything better,” she continued, adding, “I love you, forever and always! Cheers to spending our lifetime together and an inseparable bond.” The proposal came one day after Patrick’s 25th birthday.
Patrick and Brittany’s engagement was a long time coming, as they’ve been dating since they were teenagers. The pair met while attending Whitehouse High School in Whitehouse, Texas, where they even went to prom together in 2013.
After Brittany graduated, she went on to play college soccer at the nearby University of Texas, while Patrick, who graduated in 2014, went to Texas Tech University. Despite being hundreds of miles away, they made the distance work.
In April of 2017, Patrick was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the NFL Draft. During that time, Brittany graduated with a kinesiology degree and later committed to play professional soccer with UMF Afturelding/Fram in Iceland in May of 2017.
Patrick and Brittany currently live in Kansas City with their two dogs, where she runs her own fitness company, Brittany Lynne Fitness. We’re looking forward to seeing this twosome turn into a trio! Congratulations to Patrick and Brittany!
