The last several months have seen Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes experience some life-changing events on and off the field. At the top of the list is the birth of his daughter last month. The special moment also saw Mahomes and his fiancee Brittany Matthews received a touching one-of-a-kind gift.
Patrick Mahomes experiences the birth of his daughter
Throughout the latter portion of the 2020 season, Patrick Mahomes had the lingering excitement around his family’s next venture.
As he moved through the playoffs, questions began to arise concerning the upcoming birth of his daughter. Before Super Bowl 55, Mahomes voiced tremendous enthusiasm for the life-changing situation, which he singled out as his favorite moment.
“For me, it’s going to be whenever I actually become a girl dad,” Mahomes said in an interview with ESPN. “Sorry to Brittany and the engagement ring and everything like that, but being able to see that baby girl is going to be a special moment.”
He and his fiancee Brittany Matthews finally welcomed to the world their daughter Sterling Skye Mahomes on March 20. The strong outpouring of support has also seen the growing family receive a unique gift from a familiar place.
Patrick Mahomes’ daughter received a one of a kind gift days after her birth
Since their daughter’s birth, Patrick Mahomes and his fiancee Brittany Matthews have shifted their attention to their newborn.
The two have mostly kept away from social media, with Matthews just recently posting a video on Instagram of her cradling their daughter. However, it was hard for them to shy away from sharing one unique gift they received after their daughter’s birth.
Mahomes and Matthews took to social media to show a letter of intent to play soccer for Texas Tech, where the Chiefs star quarterback attended. The document was dated Feb. 22, two days after Sterling’s birth, and signed by athletic director Kirby Hocutt.
The letter is a touching move by Texas Tech as it’s a unique congratulatory gift. It’s something that ties directly to both parents as Mahomes played football and baseball at the school. Meanwhile, Matthews played soccer at UT Tyler and is also the co-owner of the Kansas City NWSL Club.
It’s another special moment that Mahomes and Matthews can cherish and keep forever for their daughter.
Chiefs’ future remains bright
Patrick Mahomes’ personal life has taken an exciting new turn, venturing into fatherhood.
Mahomes should also be quite thrilled at what lies ahead of him in his football career. Although the Chiefs fell short in disappointing fashion in Super Bowl 55 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there remains a bright future.
The 25-year-old has quickly made the franchise the gold standard in the AFC behind three straight championship game appearances and back-to-back Super Bowl trips. There will have to be adjustments made to the roster, but the pieces are there for Kansas City to continue to contend for Super Bowls.
The loss in Super Bowl 55 will continue to linger in his mind, but it provides additional motivation to push forward. Mahomes is the cornerstone to the Chiefs’ future as his play should keep the franchise in championship contend for years to come. Kansas City also has him under contract through at least the 2031 season.
As he moves through pivotal moments in his personal life, the star quarterback has plenty of that ahead on the football field.
