Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, has had a decent 2020 compared to most. Mahomes won the Super Bowl in February, signed an extension for $500 million in July, and is now engaged to his longtime girlfriend Brittany Matthews.
The young quarterback had two rings with him at Arrowhead Stadium at the Chiefs socially distant Super Bowl celebration. One was his brand new Super Bowl ring that was awarded to all the players from last season’s title-winning team. In addition, Mahomes had a huge engagement ring in preparation to propose to Matthews after the event.
Mahomes surprised Matthews with a floral arrangement and bright signs in the Kansas City stadium after receiving his Super Bowl ring. Some are even saying Matthews’ engagement ring is even nicer than Mahomes’ Super Bowl ring. The cost of the ring has not been reported, but by the looks of it, money was no factor for Mahomes.
Matthews gushed over the special moment as she posted on her Instagram account sharing the couple’s good news.
