After winning his first Super Bowl (and becoming its MVP), Mahomes signed the richest contract in sports history, became a minority owner of the Kansas City Royals and proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Brittany Matthews, on the same night the team received its Super Bowl LIV rings.
On Tuesday, Mahomes announced more good news — that he and Matthews are expecting their first child.
“It’s extremely exciting,” Mahomes explained on Wednesday, “being able to grow up and have these dreams of having a family and playing in the NFL, and for that stuff to start happening and really coming into truth and everything like that, it’s really cool. I’m just excited that I have a lot of great people around me and I’m in a great organization and I’m able to live out these dreams day by day.”
Mahomes was asked by reporters which teammate might make the best honorary “uncle” for his growing family.
“I would say Matt Moore — or someone like that — that’s responsible,” he replied. “I can’t let like Trav (Travis Kelce) or anybody do it. You’d never know what would happen.”
