Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews announced their pregnancy shortly after they got engaged in September 2020.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his lovely fiancée, Brittany Matthews, announced the birth of their first child on 20 February 2021. The thrilled couple took to social media to break the news to the public. According to ESPN, the couple put up matching Instagram posts to welcome their daughter, Sterling Skye Mahomes.
The picture posted showed Brittany wearing a sparkling necklace that spelled their daughter's name. The fans of the star along with other celebrities congratulated the new parents in town.
The news was broken just days after the sportsman stated he was counting his days to fatherhood.
Speaking after the Super-Bowl with 610 Sports Radio Kansas City, Patrick stated he could not wait to be a dad. "Hopefully [Brittany] gets all the way to her due date, but I mean really, anytime, I could be having a baby girl and I'm super excited about that," said the 25-year-old.
Drawing inspiration from his own father, he also added, "It's gonna be something special, and I'm excited for the journey of trying to find ways to better myself and become the best dad that I can be," according to People. "I've got to work on becoming a better dad even though I haven't become one yet," said the football player, according to ESPN.
The couple revealed they were pregnant in September 2020 after they got engaged at the beginning of that month. The couple shared a picture of them holding the ultrasound photo on Instagram. “Mom and Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding,” captioned Brittany. The sports star too shared the same picture with a heart emoji.
Since then, the couple has shared numerous pictures that depicted how much they were looking forward to parenthood. Though the maternity shoot images posted by Brittany drove people to think they were going to parents to a baby boy, Brittany cleared the air by posting the picture of herself in a pink room. She wrote, "Ready to meet you, baby girl."
The couple's romance dates back to their high school days. They began dating in 2012 at Whitehouse High School. The football player was a sophomore while his lover was his junior. After finishing school, the couple went off to different colleges but managed to keep their romance alive.
