Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his girlfriend Brittany Matthews are expecting their first child together, the couple announced on Instagram Tuesday. Each posted a photo of an ultrasound, with Matthews writing, “Mom and Dad, taking a little detour at the wedding.”
Mahomes and Matthews, a fitness instructor, announced their engagement earlier this month. Mahomes proposed after the Chiefs Super Bowl ring ceremony, according to CBS Sports.
Amid countless roses and candles at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, Mahomes asked his longtime girlfriend the question.
First, Mahomes moved on the field to receive his ring for winning Super Bowl LIV. The 24-year-old was named MVP after pitching for 286 yards and two touchdowns during the game, according to CBS Sports. He then proposed to the club-level suites.
Mahomes and Matthews met at Whitehouse High School in Texas nearly 10 years ago, according to CBS Sports.
After announcing her pregnancy on Tuesday, Matthews shared a photo of their dog on her Instagram story, writing that the puppy was “pretty excited to be a big sister.”
