The Super Bowl 2021 is behind us and the Kansas City Chiefs took on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, Kansas Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 25, and his fiancée Brittany Matthews, 25, have welcomed their first child, a daughter. They announced the pregnancy news in September, shortly after they got engaged.
That wasn’t the only big news for Mahomes in 2020. He and the Chiefs agreed on a $450 million extension that includes a $140 million injury guarantee and it’s considered one of the largest contracts in sports history. Mahomes also became part owner of the Kansas City Royals, making him the youngest part-owner in sports history, according to CNBC. While Mahomes has been on a career high, his fiancée has been by his side the whole time. But who is the sweet soul who stole his heart early on? Meet Patrick Mahomes’ fiancée, Brittany Matthews.
Who is Patrick Mahomes’ fiancée Brittany Matthews?
Brittany Matthews and Patrick Mahomes started dating in high school
Mahomes and Matthews have been together for eight years and are still going strong. The Matthews-Mahomes love story began at Whitehouse High School in Texas. They even went to the prom together!
She’s a certified personal trainer
Matthews has a Bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and used that experience to get certified to help others reach their fitness goals. “A woman can be any weight and still be healthy. She can be at any weight and still be happy. She can be at any weight and working on herself to become a healthy person,” Matthews said.
Fitness is her passion
Matthews regularly posts workout videos on Instagram, sharing tips and tricks about staying fit, even during the pandemic. In an Instagram video she explained finding her passion. “I found that my passion was in fitness and helping others,” the former pro soccer player explained in an Instagram video. This led her to create Brittany Lynne Fitness, an at-home workout program. She runs her fitness program from Kansas City. She is also a Balance Elite Leader for the clothing line Balance Athletica.
So excited to announce that I’m officially joining the @balanceathletica team as an Elite Leader. Thank you for getting me out of my comfort zone & encouraging me to do something I have never done, share who I am & my story! https://t.co/17cpaJrDkV pic.twitter.com/qWvIuqg2un

Brittany Matthews and Patrick Mahomes announced their pregnancy right after they got engaged
The couple announced they were having a baby girl, their first child together.
“Mom & Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding,” she wrote in a celebratory social media post alongside two photos with her fiancé, in which she held up a sonogram as Mahomes hugged her belly.
She’s also an owner of a pro soccer team
Mahomes isn’t the only one that’s part owner of a sports team; Matthews is now the minority owner of a pro women’s soccer franchise for Kansas City. “I have a true level of appreciation for what these incredible women do on a daily basis,” Matthews said in a statement as reported by USA Today. “We have the greatest fans and community here in KC and I can’t wait to huddle around this team.” The ownership group will be responsible for player rights, draft picks and other assets.
She’s an animal-lover
Matthews is a proud dog mom to Silver and Steel, a pit bull and cane corso. Of course, they have their own Instagram page with a built-in following. In April, Matthews and Mahomes had a photo shoot with their pets “quarantine style.” Looks like Baby M already has a couple of siblings!
They just welcomed their new baby
The couple gave birth Feb. 20, 2021. They shared the news on social media, revealing the baby’s name is Sterling Skye Mahomes.
So, when are Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews getting married?
It seems they aren’t in much of a rush–who could blame them? They have plenty on their plates right now! “Brittany is committed to Patrick for life, and they will definitely get married one day,” a source close to the couple told HollywoodLife in February 2020 (before they got engaged). “That being said, she’s not in any huge rush to take that step. She feels they have a lifetime together and is not pressuring him to put a ring on it.”
“At the moment, she’s very focused on her own career, which has her feeling very fulfilled and very happy…it’s not something she’s on pins and needles waiting for.”
“Patrick and Brittany are all in with their life together,” an NFL insider told HollywoodLife. “Rushing into the inevitable is not on their radar just yet. They want everything else to fall into place.”
