Patrick Mahomes: From Scrawny High Schooler to Star NFL Quarterback

Patrick Lavon Mahomes II was born in Tyler, Texas on September 17, 1995. His father is Pat Mahomes, a former Major League Baseball pitcher for seven teams including the Minnesota Twins, Chicago Cubs, and Pittsburgh Pirates. At Whitehouse High School in Whitehouse, Texas, he began his football career while also playing baseball and basketball. Like his dad, Patrick was a talented pitcher. He was so good that he had to choose between Major League Baseball or committing to Texas Tech as a quarterback.

Mahomes went on to play for Texas Tech, where he set records and was one of the most productive quarterbacks in college football. At Texas Tech, he won the Sammy Baugh Trophy as the best passer in the nation in 2016. He was then selected by the Kansas City Chiefs during the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Since joining the NFL, Mahomes has quickly established himself as one of the top quarterbacks in the league, winning the MVP award in 2018 and leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl victory that same year. He also has become a multiple-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro.

Brittany Mahomes: Fitness Guru & Social Media Star

Brittany Mahomes (nee Matthews) was born August 31, 1995, making her almost exactly the same age as her love. Like Patrick, Brittany attended Whitehouse High School, although she was one class ahead of him. She played soccer and was a cheerleader before attending the University of Texas at Tyler. In college, she played soccer while completing a degree in Exercise Science. Brittany graduated in 2017, the same year that Patrick Mahomes was drafted into the NFL.

These days, Brittany is an American personal trainer, fitness influencer, and entrepreneur. She is a certified personal trainer and a certified strength and conditioning specialist. She also owns a fitness company, Brittany Lynne Fitness. Brittany is known for her workout videos, healthy living tips, and motivational posts on social media — as well as being an awesome momma and partner to Patrick.

Patrick Mahomes & Brittany Matthews Fell in Love After a Valentine’s Day “Joke”

Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews met when he was a freshman and she was a sophomore at Whitehouse High School. According to Life & Style Mag, Brittany recalled their friendship and said it was only platonic at first.

“He just became one of my best friends, like all of his other friends were,” she wrote on Instagram. “I never liked him, we were just best friends.” Brittany elaborated in a social media video. Their romance blossomed a year later after Patrick’s friends goaded him into giving her a rose and a card for Valentine’s Day. They were chanting, “Kiss Her, Kiss Her!” and she realized she had a crush on him. Shortly after, they started dating. Luckily for the lovebirds, they also stayed in Texas despite transferring to different universities, which kept them close.

Mahomes Proposed to Matthews on the Same Day He Got His Super Bowl LIV Ring

A decade of true love complete with physical attraction, stamina, and loads of money to basically do whatever you want truly sounds like a recipe for bliss.

Brittany Matthews transitioned from the superstar quarterback’s girlfriend to his fiancée on September 1, 2020. After being together for 8 years, Mahomes bent his knee at the Kansas City Arrowhead Stadium. It was the day after Brittany’s birthday and Patrick had just received his Super Bowl LIV ring, so the mood was certainly set. But Patrick took it up another notch with a massive floral arrangement and a lit-up sign that said, “Will You Marry Me?” At home, he had a candlelit dinner waiting. It was something out of a fairytale.

“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,” Brittany posted to Instagram (via Us Weekly). “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.”

Daughter Sterling Mahomes Was Born In February 2021

If that doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, it gets better. Brittany was actually pregnant when Patrick proposed. Their gender reveal party, like all of their parties, was huge. The final reveal came when a set of pit bulls with painted nails and pink paint on their paws came walking down a paper-covered walkway.

Their daughter Sterling was born February 20, 2021. They got married in March of 2022 in Hawaii. Brittany wore a stunning cut-out corset gown while Sterling served as the flower girl. A carousel of wedding photos posted on Patrick Mahomes’ Instagram shows the couple madly in love and standing under an enormous flower arch. Brittany shared a sneak peek video of the location, complete with fire dancers, gorgeous light decorations, and exotic cocktails that would make any straight and sober person want to hop on a plane tomorrow.

Two months later, Patrick posted a set of photos of their family holding a sign that said, “Big Sister Duties Coming Soon.”

“Round 2!” Mahomes wrote on Instagram. He and Brittany are beaming from ear to ear, as they are 99.99% of the time. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, there don’t seem to be enough pages on the planet to describe the love coming from these high school sweethearts. It’s clear they were made for each other.

Son Patrick Lavon III Was Born In November 2022

At some point between the epic Hawaii wedding and baby #2, the Mahones managed to sneak in some time at Coachella. Brittany looked like a supermodel and Patrick was hiding behind enormous glasses. Enough said.

Patrick “Bronze” Lavon III was born November 28, 2022. Brittany kept her fans eagerly awaiting the day after posting a seemingly endless thread of gorgeous silhouette photos to the ‘gram. Little baby Bronze hasn’t made much of a debut yet beyond glimpses of the tiny bundle that he is, but of course, he is still a newborn.

“Entering 2023, still chasing you….& two kiddos,” Brittany wrote on New Year’s Eve. Her post bounced back and forth between Patrick and her on their wedding day and when they were high schoolers.

It simply doesn’t get any cuter.
