The Super Bowl didn’t go the way Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes was hoping it would. Now the Pro Bowler is gearing up to be a new father and hopes to the best dad he can be.
Patrick Mahomes Readies to Become First Time Father
Until then, Mahomes is ready to take on a challenge harder than any defense he’s ever faced — being a father. The quarterback and his fiance, Brittany Matthews are expecting their first child this year. The soon father-to-be says he is ready to take on the responsibilities that come with raising a child while quarterbacking an NFL team.
In an interview with “The Drive,” Mahomes expresses excitement over becoming a dad. The quarterback and his future wife are expecting a baby girl in the coming days.
“I am super excited about it,” he says in a gleeful voice. “It’s really going to be something special. I am excited for the journey of trying to find ways to better myself and become the best dad that I can be.”
Patrick Mahomes says the family is officially on “baby watch” as Brittany’s due date comes ever closer.
Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV
Mahomes and his Chiefs’ teammate were looking for a back-to-back dub in Sunday’s Super Bowl. Instead of leaving Raymond James Stadium with another ring, they ran into a buzz saw named the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Lead by future NFL Hall of Famer Tom Brady, the Bucs methodically took apart Mahomes and the Chiefs. Brady appeared in his tenth championship game and definitely put the “super” in Super Bowl. This win is his seventh NFL championship victory. The 43-year-old quarterback was sensational, completing over 70 percent of his passes and connecting for three touchdowns. Brady took home the game’s Most Valuable Player Award in his team’s 31-9 win.
On the other side of the field, Mahomes and the Chiefs were struggling to find a spark. The defense couldn’t contain Brady and the offense didn’t fare any better. After putting up one of the top offensive seasons in NFL history this season, the Chiefs fell flat under the league’s brightest lights.
Patrick Mahomes spent most of the evening running for his life from the Chiefs’ defense that intercepted him twice and kept him out of the endzone. While it may have been his worst performance of his young career, he vows to come back stronger next season. Plus, next season, he’ll have a baby Mahomes to impress!
