Patrick Mahomes may have to play tough when he is on the field as the Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback, but when it comes to his personal life, he has the sweetest love story. The football player only married his wife, Brittany Mahomes, in 2022, but their love story has been years in the making.
What is Brittany Mahomes known for?
Much like her husband, Brittany is an avid sports enthusiast. After graduating from high school she went on to play soccer at the University of Texas, 440 miles away from Patrick. Brittany dabbled in professional soccer for a year whilst she was in Iceland. Turning her passion into a career, Brittany now works as a fitness trainer with her very own training programme. Beyond this, she is a co-owner of the Kansas City Current, a professional women’s soccer team.
How did Patrick and Brittany meet?
The pair met when they were just kids and were high school sweethearts – they met in 2012 when he was a sophomore and she was a junior at Whitehouse High School in Texas – eventually tackling a long-distance relationship while the two embarked on their separate college careers. While a long-distance relationship can be difficult, both of them understood each other’s high stakes, as while Patrick was focused on becoming a football player, Brittany was also training to be a professional athlete, and previously competed internationally as a pro soccer player in Iceland.
Both of their efforts paid off in 2017 when the soccer player graduated from the University of Texas and went to play in Iceland, meanwhile the 27-year-old quarterback was selected during the first round of the NFL draft to join his current team. The couple took their relationship to the next level in May 2019 when they splashed nearly $2million on their first home in Kansas City. Their luxurious home boasts a home gym and a lavish pool. Swoon!
He had his wife by his side as he achieved his very first Super Bowl win in 2020, and seven months later to the date, after his Super Bowl ring ceremony, he finally proposed to her. Patrick got down on one knee in a VIP box at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City in front of an illuminated sign that read, “Will You Marry Me?” He set the scene with an impressive floral display. How romantic!
When did Patrick Mahomes get married?
The couple exchanged vows in March 2022 with a stunning ceremony in Hawaii. On her big day, Brittany walked down the aisle in a stunning custom Versace gown complete with rippled folds of fabric, a giant bow and intricate crystal detailing. In March 2023, Brittany marked their one-year anniversary with an incredibly touching series of throwback photos. In her caption, she gushed: “Happy 1st Anniversary. “One of the best weeks of my life, marrying your best friend it’s one of the greatest things you could do! Nothing beats doing life with you and these beautiful kiddos of ours! She finished by adding: “Year 1 was wild but we got many more to go. You & Me forever.”
How many children does Patrick Mahomes have?
In September 2020, the loved-up couple announced that they were expecting their first child together. The couple welcomed their daughter Sterling Skye Mahomes on February 20 2021, with Patrick sharing their happy baby news via social media. He shared a heartwarming snapshot of his tiny tot’s hands alongside the caption: “Sterling Skye Mahomes 2/20/21.”
In spring 2022, they announced they were expecting a second child with a slew of sweet photos. Captioning the photos, Patrick penned: “Round 2! [white heart emoji].” They went on to welcome their second bundle of joy – a baby boy named Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III – in November of that same year.The doting parents share regular updates on Instagram. Most recently, the family-of-four coordinated in vibrant orange for the Easter break.
And back in August, little Sterling enjoyed a plaid twinning moment with her mother. Patrick and Brittany have had quite the milestone-filled last few years, with Patrick’s Super Bowl win in 2020, plus welcoming babies in 2021 and 2022. In 2023, the star quarterback headed to the Super Bowl in a history-making face-off against the Philadelphia Eagles. We can’t wait to see what the family get up to this year…
