Kansas City Chiefs’ star quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, has not only conquered the football field but also found his lifelong partner in his high school sweetheart, Brittany Matthews.
The duo, who has known each other since childhood and played different sports for the team, tied the knot in March 2022 after Mahomes popped the question with an exquisite engagement ring worth almost the salary of an average NFL player.
The 10-carat emerald-cut diamond ring, estimated to be between $350,000-$800,000, was given to Brittany by the Chiefs’ poster boy to commemorate their dating journey and to make sure that she remains with him forever.
Mahomes proposed to his girlfriend on the same day he received his championship ring at Arrowhead Stadium, making the moment even more special.

The couple started dating in 2012 and went to different colleges but remained in the same city, which helped them keep their relationship alive. Brittany recalls the proposal as the most special day of her life, and the couple announced just one month later that they were expecting a baby.
In the following year, Sterling Skye was born, and they recently welcomed their second child, baby boy Bronze.
While Mahomes’ on-field success continues to make headlines, his wife remains a pillar of support. The quarterback, who signed a massive $503 million contract extension with the Chiefs in 2020, securing his presence for the next 10 years, chose to secure his life partner first.
The couple has been inseparable since high school, and their love story continues to inspire millions around the world.
