More to love! Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews have embraced their roles as parents after welcoming children Sterling and Bronze.
The couple started dating in high school and got engaged in August 2020. The proposal came on the heels of Mahomes’ Super Bowl LIV win, and he told 610 Radio at the time that he was “probably” more nervous about getting down on one knee than playing against the San Francisco 49ers.
You don’t think it’s going to be nerve-wracking, especially when you’ve been with someone for so long, but before you get on that knee, your heart’s racing, I promise you that,” the groom-to-be explained.
The Kansas City Chiefs player wrote via Instagram at the time that it was “RING SZN.” The bride-to-be gushed, “This happened today. My heart is so full! I love this man so incredibly much and today was so so special! Couldn’t imagine this day being anymore [SIC] perfect!”
One month after the quarterback proposed, the pair announced that Matthews was pregnant with their first child.
“Mom and Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding,” the former professional soccer player captioned the September 2020 social media upload, while her fiancé captioned a post of his own with a heart emoji.
The duo welcomed daughter Sterling in February 2021, but it wasn’t until four months later that they shared her face on social media.
“Hi, my name is Sterling,” the new mom wrote alongside sweet June 2021 snaps from a family photo shoot.
That same month, Mahomes celebrated his first Father’s Day. His fiancée posted an Instagram slideshow full of sweet father-daughter moments, writing, “We love you.”
The NFL star did the same in May 2021, writing to Matthews: “Happy first Mother’s Day!”
Sterling’s proud parents tied the knot in March 2022 in Hawaii, nearly two years after getting engaged. Three months later, the pair announced they were expecting baby No. 2.
The twosome gave fans a glimpse at son Bronze’s feet via Instagram in November 2022 while announcing his arrival.
