Kanas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes sat down to talk about his numerous business ventures, but also opened up about recently becoming a first-time father.

Coming off back-to-back Super Bowl appearances with one Lombardi Trophy to his name, and an enormous 10-year, $503 million contract, Mahomes has begun to invest part of his fortune in recent months. He purchased a minority stake in the Kansas City Royals organization soon after signing his record-breaking deal. In addition, he invested an unknown amount in Whoop – a wearable fitness tracker.

However, the biggest news out of the Mahomes household is that he’s recently become a dad. His fiancée Brittany Matthews gave birth to a little girl, Sterling Skye Mahomes, on February 20. During an interview with Yahoo Finance, the 25-year-old opened up about being a first-time dad.

“It’s been awesome. First off thanks, but it’s been amazing” Mahomes said about his new life as a father. “Luckily enough, Brittany’s been a champ. I mean she’s helped a ton with just taking care of most it. And I just try to be supportive as possible — so I do what I can. But at the same time she pretty much handles everything and I’m just kind of a cheerleader on the sideline.”

The NFL star said not much has changed since becoming a parent. Yet he admits he’s not getting quite as much sleep as he used to.

“Other than just a little bit of less sleep, I’m still able to get in and get the workouts and stuff done in the morning. And then I come home and a lot of just holding her and trying to figure out which way she isn’t crying and try to keep her in that position,” Mahomes added. 

Patrick Mahomes and Family Share Easter Outfits Photo

During Easter weekend, Brittany Matthews shared an adorable family photo of Patrick Mahomes and their baby girl all wearing pastel outfits for the holiday.

The couple has shown off their firstborn on numerous occasions in recent history. The proud mama made sure to take advantage of their matching Easter outfits when she shared the photo with her more than one million Instagram followers.

At just six weeks old, the family celebrated their first Easter with Sterling Sky as the third member of the family. Supposedly the infant even made it through her first church service as well, which Matthews joked about on Twitter.

“Made it to Church ON TIME, & made it through church with baby girl, GOD IS GOOD! #HappyEaster,” Matthews tweeted.

The Mahomes family had plenty to be thankful for this Easter. The high school sweethearts have gotten engaged, had their first healthy child, and are building a life together in Kansas City. And that doesn’t even include Patrick Mahomes’ already legendary NFL career at such a young age. The Mahomes family is definitely blessed.
