“But whenever it happens, it happens. But if we can wait to maybe a few weeks after the game, that would probably be ideal.”
The timing of childbirth is a situation that can’t be controlled, but it’s something that the two are hoping can wait until after Sunday’s game. It’s another significant moment in Mahomes’ life, in which they both don’t want the experience of his daughter’s birth to overlap with the Super Bowl.
