Patrick Mahomes and fiancée Brittany Matthews will soon be adding another member to their team.
On Tuesday, Matthews, 25, announced that she and the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, also 25, are expecting their first child, less than a month after getting engaged.
“Mom & Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding,” Matthews captioned a pair of Instagram photos featuring a sonogram image.
Together for more than eight years, Matthews and Mahomes have celebrated a number of highs in 2020, ranging from a Super Bowl title to a 10-year, $503 million contract extension with the Chiefs. Here’s what you need to know about Mahomes’ No. 1 fan.
She started dating Mahomes in high school
The Matthews-Mahomes love story began at Whitehouse High School in Texas. Back in 2013, Mahomes shared a collection of prom date snaps from their special night.
“Best prom date a guy could ask for!! #prom2013 #bestfriend #greatnight,” the quarterback posted to Instagram.
Mahomes later attended Texas Tech, while Matthews studied at the University of Texas at Tyler, where she also played soccer.
She’s a personal trainer
Not only does Matthews boast a B.S. in Kinesiology, but she’s a certified personal trainer, too.
Matthews regularly posts workout videos on Instagram, sharing tips and tricks about staying fit, even while exercising at home.
“Let’s focus on our health and positivity during this time! Let’s build each other up, let’s help each other out! Let’s get through this together (while apart),” Matthews posted in March amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
She’s got a close bond with fellow Kansas City WAGs
After the Chiefs topped the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 2020, Matthews and Mahomes celebrated Kansas City’s victory in February with players and their significant others, including Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and his then-girlfriend, Kayla Nicole.
In response to Tuesday’s baby announcement, Kayla also showered the parents-to-be with love on social media.
“I mean I thought it was gonna be hard for y’all to top 2020, but BOOM. A baby Mahomie??!?!?!!? 😩 CANT WAIT. Love y’all,” she wrote.
She’s an animal lover
Baby Mahomes already has two built-in siblings.
Matthews is a proud dog mom to Silver and Steel Mahomes, the pit bull and cane corso duo. Much like Olivia Culpo and Christian McCaffrey’s adorable pup, Oliver Sprinkles, the Mahomes canines also have a substantial Instagram following, frequently showcasing their Kansas City game-day gear.
In April, Matthews and Mahomes engaged in a family photoshoot with their pets “quarantine style.”
Like Mahomes, she’s also having the best year ever
No one is having a more exciting year than Matthews and Mahomes. Between their summer getaways at the Ozarks to Mahomes’ dreamy proposal for Matthews, 2020 has become a game-changer in the best possible way.
On the same day the Chiefs received their 2020 Super Bowl rings, Mahomes popped the question to Matthews at Arrowhead Stadium, presenting his longtime love with an estimated six-figure engagement ring.
“9.1.2020,” Matthews posted to Instagram at the time. “On a day that was meant to celebrate you, you turned it into celebrating us. 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. I love you, forever and always! Cheers to spending our lifetime together and an inseparable bond.”
