Patrick Mahomes might be one of the best QB in the NFL, but he is also a dedicated family man. The Chiefs QB began his married life with his high-school sweetheart, Brittany Matthews. However, there was a time when he and Matthews were dealing with some trouble, keeping their firstborn’s identity a secret. They both weighed in practically while revealing her identity.
In February 2021, the Mahomes household welcomed their new member into the family — A baby girl. Patrick and Brittany named their child Sterling Skye Mahomes, who turned one this year. But after her birth, the couple kept her identity a secret. However, they have altered their minds, as they couldn’t keep the girl secret.Patrick Mahomes mentions via TODAY, “Obviously at first we wanted to keep stuff private and not have her out there. As we started doing different things and she started getting a little bit older, being out and about, it almost became like a burden to try to hide her at all times when we do stuff, and this coming season we want her to be at the games and not have to worry about hiding her the entire time.”The QB continued by stating while they keep “some stuff private,” they control the flow of information on how much they showcase the newborn in front of the photographers.
A celebrity carrying his child out to the paparazzi was always a hotly debated issue. Mahomes understands how it feels to grow up as the kid of a pro athlete. His father, Patrick Mahomes Sr., pitched in Major League Baseball for six various teams.Months after Mahomes and Matthews married in March, the couple revealed another joyful announcement. The quarterback announced via Twitter that his family is expecting their second baby. Sterling will now have a new sibling and some elder sister duties. The couple disclosed the gender of their newcomer to the family to add to the excitement.
The Mahomes family held a gender reveal party in June. They had colored liquid water guns that would disclose the identity of their future child. The water revealed that their next child to be a boy. Patrick’s joy was uncontrollable following the reveal. He dashed to the pool and dove right in with clothes on. As Mahomes decks up for his 2022 campaign, he will also prepare himself as a father of two — maybe even have catch practices in the future.
