You can’t draw up a better love story than the one Patrick Mahomes, and fiancée Brittany Matthews have exhibited. Let’s take a look at the relationship’s timeline.
Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews met in high school when he was the school’s quarterback, and she was the cheerleader. Cliche, but cute.
At Whitehouse High School near Mahomes’s hometown of Tyler, Texas, he became close friends with Matthews in 2011, which eventually budded into more.
By Valentines Day the following year, Mahomes started throwing loving hints to Matthews with a rose and a card, which brings us to the beginning of their romantic relationship.
With Patrick Mahomes being a star at both baseball and football, he could always count on Brittany to be at his game to cheer him on. Likewise, Brittany was a standout soccer player and could depend on her boyfriend to be her biggest supporter in the stands.
After years of high school dances and college recruitment trips, Matthew graduated in 2013 and attended the University of Texas at Tyler to play soccer. This meant another year close to Mahomes.
The following year, Patrick Mahomes graduated and was offered a football scholarship at Texas Tech University, nearly 440 miles away from Mattews.
Despite the nearly seven-hour drive, the couple decided to make it work and stay together. Due to Mahomes’s insane talents at Texas Tech, the realization that her boyfriend was potentially being drafted to the NFL dawned on Mattews.
Patrick Mahomes Heading to the NFL, Matthews to Iceland
“He ended up going to Texas Tech, and that’s when it really hit me. ‘Oh s—t, he might go play professional football,” the Brittany Today in December. “It was surreal to see him living his dream and seeing him grow as an athlete and as a man, in general, was just amazing.”
He wasn’t the only one living out his dream as a professional athlete.
After graduating from UT at Tyler as the second all-time leading scorer, Brittany signed with a professional team in Iceland. The contract came just one month after Mahomes was drafted tenth overall to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017.
After nearly a year and league title, Matthew returned to the US to move in with Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City, Missouri. Finally, they can enjoy each other’s company, living in the same place for the first time since they were young.
About Time for a Ring
Patrick Mahomes finally popped the question to Brittany in September of 2020. The day the quarterback received his Super Bowl ring, Matthews got her massive rock as well.
“On a day that was meant to celebrate you, you turned it into celebrating us. It’s always us, it’s always you and me,” Matthews wrote via Instagram at the time. “The words you looked into my eyes and said to me at this moment will NEVER leave my mind! You made this day perfect, you took my entire breath away, and I could not have imagined anything better. I love you, forever and always! Cheers to spending our lifetime together and an inseparable bond🎉🥂💕.”
The two share two dogs and are expecting a baby girl any day. Considering both her parents were professional athletes, the future is bright for baby Mahomes.
Next month, the couple will celebrate nine years by each other’s side, throughout all the wins, losses, and distance. Like we said, quite a love story.
