Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany welcomed baby boy Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III to the world on Monday. According to Brittany’s Instagram account, the baby was born on Monday weighing seven pounds and eight ounces. “Bronze” joins sister Sterling Skye (2/10/21) as progeny of the MVP QB and his wife.
Who Is Bronze Mahomes?
The Instagram post featured a photo of the latest addition to the Mahomes empire lying on a Mahomes-printed blanket. Though the baby’s face was not featured in the snap, Mahomes and Matthews did include an iced-out Cuban link chain with the baby’s name.
Not a bad gift for your first day in the world!
It’s not going out on a limb to suggest that Patrick III will be a standout athlete. His grandfather, Patrick Mahomes Sr. was a major league pitcher for over a decade, and Bronze’s dad — who could throw a fastball 91 mph as a 14-year-old — is the NFL standard at the quarterback position.
Brittany was in attendance at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday during the Chiefs 26-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams. She posted a few photos from the game. That’s dedication. Less than 24 hours away from giving birth and she still manages to show support for her hubby.
Though Patrick did tell Fox Sports’ Charissa Thompson, that Brittany wasn’t allowed to give birth on a football Sunday, her due date was scheduled for Dec. 4, which would have been the Chiefs road game against the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals. See, Brittany understands priorities. Football first. Kidding, of course.
Patrick Mahomes Is NFL MVP
The Chiefs are 9-2 and sit atop the AFC standings. They can do whatever they want offensively. They’re averaging an NFL-high 1.23 expected points added (EPA) per offensive drive; no other team is above 0.52. For context, the Chiefs were at 1.22 in that same metric in Patrick Mahomes’ MVP season in 2018.
Speaking of … Mahomes is having another MVP season. He leads the league in yards thrown and touchdown passes. He’s ranked first in DYAR, second in DVOA, and third in QBR. He’s thrown for over 300 yards in six straight games, but he sees room for improvement.
“You like the win but we have a lot to get better at,” Mahomes said after Sunday’s win over the Rams, “especially me.”
The Chiefs were not great in the red zone on Sunday, including an uncharacteristic interception by Mahomes. As the team gets ready for the playoffs and a potential AFC championship showdown with the Buffalo Bills, they’ll need to be sharp in all aspects of the game if they want to advance to their third Super Bowl in the Mahomes era.
Will Kansas City Chiefs Sign Odell Beckham Jr.?
There is also the slightest possibility that the Chiefs could sign free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Imagine adding OBJ with Travis Kelce and Juju Smith-Schuster? Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and head coach Andy Reid would have a field day drawing up ways to use the versatile wide receiver.
A Chiefs fan suggested that OBJ ignore the Rams, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys and play with the best QB in the league in Kansas City. It’s a compelling argument, and OBJ left the door open.
“Tell em send me what they think I’m worth ….. n we can talk”

A pipe dream perhaps, but it would be fun to see OBJ with an elite quarterback.
In the meantime, Mahomes can enjoy being a dad of two. Congrats to him and Brittany.
