Patrick Mahomes has had quite the fairytale run on and off the field — from his heroic feats on the NFL gridiron as a Super Bowl champion, MVP and consistent clutch performer to his victories off the field with his wife Brittany Matthews and his burgeoning brand. That brand includes an ownership stake in the Kansas City Royals.
In 2020, he was awarded the largest contract in sports history: a 10-year extension reportedly worth $450 million. The total potential value of Mahomes’ current contract could reach more than $500 million between the 2020 and 2031 NFL seasons.
He’s truly living the life of an individual who is healthy and rich in the things that matter far beyond money and fame.
As Mahomes prepares for another ring run, he and Brittany are adding a second child to the Mahomes Empire. It’s been roughly a year-and-a-half since the two welcomed daughter Sterling Skye Mahomes into the fold. During that time, they also have dealt with the unpleasant side of fame — in the form of unwarranted attacks by social media on their family. They seemingly haven’t blinked an eye at the drama, refusing to let gossip affect the way they live their lives.
As is common practice these days, the Mahomes family revealed that they are having a baby boy via video post on social media on Sunday.
According to the New York Post, when asked for a prediction before the reveal, Mahomes said, “It’s a guaranteed boy.”
In photos provided exclusively to PEOPLE, “the parents are seen wearing light blue hoodies with “Baby Mahomes Boy or Girl” emblazoned across the front. The blue and pink motif — also seen on a T-shirt worn by their daughter — shows “Boy” circled.”

Mahomes now has the mini-me that he’s always wanted. Both of his kids will be successful and have athleticism, no doubt, but family history says they are going to call the son Patrick Mahomes III. Pat Sr. was an MLB pitcher; Mahomes II is an NFL star. Maybe the new bundle of joy will go to the NBA and complete the rare pro sports family trifecta.
Mahomes always produces in grand fashion. According to PEOPLE, “After squirting blue liquid from toy guns, the parents-to-be cheered alongside their guests before Mahomes jogged away and jumped, clothes still on, in the pool.”
Mahomes and his high-school sweetheart continue to rise in status among the high-profile couples in sports and entertainment. Both are just 26 years old and making major moves while building a family to enjoy it with.
Patrick Jr. isn’t the only one with business acumen. In November 2021, it was announced that Brittany became a co-owner of the National Women’s Soccer League’s Kansas City team. The new name rollout occurred in Kansas City along with other significant changes helmed by Matthews.
She’s also an outspoken supporter for women’s rights in sports.
Being able to juggle relationships and celebrity lifestyles at such a young age isn’t easy. Mahomes is always at the forefront of conversations about the NFL’s elite quarterbacks and he’s also the center of debate.
Mahomes has set such a high standard that analysts are always looking for the next best thing. You believe he’s the best. Or you think someone else is gaining ground. That split in opinion, despite his obvious greatness, is what makes him so polarizing.
Either way, he seems to have life all figured out. Happy life. Happy wife and an inner circle that supports his rise as one of the most well-known athletes on the globe. We’re also sure to hear a lot more from Brittany Mahomes in the future. When you talk about dream teams that also extend across cultural and racial boundaries, all the Mahomes clan is lacking is a reality show.
