Brittany Matthews: The Truth About Patrick Mahomes' Wife

As the Super Bowl LVII game day draws near, all roads lead to State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and all eyes are on "Diamonds" song sensation Rihanna, who is making a performance comeback since taking a hiatus in 2019. The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Philadelphia Eagles after recording a 23-20 revenge win against the Cincinnati Bengals. For the first time in history, the men to watch are both African American: 27-year-old Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who put on a splendid showcase ahead of the finals in spite of an ankle injury, and the Eagles' QB Jalen Hurts.

You may be familiar with Mahomes for his on-field athletics, but what is he up to when he's not training, throwing the pigskin, or promoting his team? Based on Instagram, there's a pretty good chance he's spending time with his wife Brittany Matthews, their two children, and their two pups, Steel and Silver.

The twenty-somethings reportedly moved into a $1.9 million home in Kansas City in 2019, so they're really putting down roots as a couple. Fans are also well aware that Matthews is usually at Mahomes' games, cheering on those Chiefs. But there's plenty more to know about Matthews beyond just her QB husband. So let's kick things off, shall we?

Their relationship goes way, way back

Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews are high school sweethearts. According to Yahoo!, they've been together since the 10th grade and even went to prom back in 2013, which Mahomes documented on Instagram. He rocked a turquoise bow tie with a gold vest to match her sparkly gold skirt — let's just say the looks are adorably very much of that time.

Not only do these two have a strong past, but they're working on building an even stronger future. As reported by Business Insider (via Bleacher Report), Mahomes talked about buying a nearly $2 million house together and said, "Setting down roots in Kansas City was huge for us. I think the people are what we love the most about Kansas City. We're trying to be here for a long, long time." From high school prom to purchasing real estate, these two are checking off all the major milestones.

Patrick Mahomes' wife is his biggest fan

There's no doubt that Brittany Matthews is Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 fan. Celebrating Mahomes' 2020 trip to the Super Bowl, Matthews shared a photo kissing him on the football field, captioned, "YOU DID IT BABE ... #chiefskingdom." She was so excited about the game that her reaction to the win sparked a TMZ story saying she "WENT FULL-ON BERSERK while watching her boyfriend engineer one of the greatest comebacks in NFL playoff history ... screaming, yelling, talking trash!!!"

While she's a huge fan of her husband's team, Matthews hasn't always been treated the kindest by other football fans. According to USA Today's For The Win, Matthews detailed what happened when she attended a Chiefs game against the New England Patriots with Mahomes' brother, Jackson, in December 2019. She tweeted at the time: "As soon as we sit down, drunk dude 'hey everyone this is patrick mahomes girl and brother, let's give them s***.' This shall be fun." In a follow-up post, she added, "Gillette security came and got us and moved us to a safe place ... that's how you know it was bad." Matthews posted on IG that despite "getting harassed," the New England bullies "will NEVER keep me away."

You better believe she was there to witness the Chiefs win Super Bowl LIV on February 2, 2020! She posted plenty of photos throughout the night, including a celebratory post-game pic with the caption: "We fought for our right to PAAAARTYYYY."

Brittany Matthews is an athlete, too

There are two sports enthusiasts in this relationship. Brittany Matthews is an athlete who played soccer growing up. In an interview with Yahoo! Sports in July 2019, Patrick Mahomes mentioned his then-girlfriend also keeps his health on track. "Eating-wise, I'm blessed that my girlfriend is [big on] nutrition so she helps me out with that — she's [about] fitness," he said. And he's not the only one she helps.

Over on Instagram, Matthews shares videos of her workouts regularly, since she's a certified personal trainer and earned a bachelor's degree in kinesiology. "I am a strong woman who is aspiring to make a positive impact on people's health and wellness," she says on her website, BrittanyLynneFitness. She also reportedly played professional soccer in Iceland but had a change of heart: "By the end of my first season, I truly began to fall in love with being in the gym more than being on the soccer field," she said. Now, she's doing what she can to help others discover a passion for fitness.

While Mahomes is the one playing in the Super Bowl, it sounds like Matthews can hold her own as an athlete, and their mutual love of fitness only brings them closer. They've been going strong for years now, and really, who doesn't love a high school sweethearts story?

She led an anti-bullying campaign

When the Kansas City Chiefs triumphed over Buffalo Bills in a January 2022 divisional round, Brittany Matthews may have taken the celebrations a bit too far. In a video shared on Instagram and captioned "Chiefs Kingdom, YALL ROCK#nextround" accompanied by two emojis, Matthews was seen popping a bottle of champagne. The entire section of the stadium appeared to be in a festive mood when splashes of Matthews' drink showered fans below her suite.

Social media users did not take the act lightly. "Nothing like drenching your fans with champagne after they sat out in freezing cold weather for 4 hours while you sat in your heated booth," One user wrote when the clip was shared by Barstool Sports. In response to her critics, Matthews tweeted, "I just wish I could do what I want without getting attacked every week."

Following the heavy backlash she received, Matthews took to Instagram to announce a clothing partnership. "Our good friends over at Charlie Hustle which is a pretty big, favorite local Kansas City shirt company here in Kansas City ... um ... brought to me this idea of making 'Team Brittany' shirts which I thought was pretty hilarious," she conveyed in a since-deleted video (via TMZ). She went on to emphasize the need for kindness, especially on social media where she was accustomed to hostility.

Brittany Matthews keeps a solid circle of friends

No, Brittany Matthews does not hang around Patrick Mahomes all year round. Even though she considers him her bosom buddy, going by a 2020 tweet captioned "Let me tell y'all about my best friend, he earned that," she has a clique of girlfriends who showed up in her bridal shower which was captured visually and shared on Instagram.

The same script would replay itself during Matthews' February 2022 all-nude-colored bachelorette party, whose sneak peeks she put up on her Instagram stories (via People)."My girlsssss mean everything to me," Matthews noted in one footage that showed her getting down alongside her girl pals.

However, It's not all fun and games. Matthews' friends come to her aid when she needs a break from motherhood. Things can get chaotic, as she remarked in a series of tweets, but her squad stays alert. "Best friends that will come over and watch your kids and tell you to take a nap are just a blessing," Matthews tweeted in December 2022.

She got engaged to Patrick Mahomes in 2020

In 2020, the Kansas City Chiefs pulled off an impressive 21-point score within the last six minutes of facing the San Francisco 49ers to clinch their first Super Bowl championship in 50 years, per NFL. On the day Patrick Mahomes got presented with his gemstone-ruby-diamond Super Bowl LIV ring at Arrowhead Stadium, he was giving away one of his own. "Ring SZN," he called the moment in an Instagram post that showed he'd just popped the question to an ecstatic Brittany Matthews in a sea of white and red roses.

Matthews shared pictures of the cheerful milestone on the platform as well and penned a long note to Mahomes which partially read: "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." According to jewelry experts who spoke to Page Six, Mahomes may have splashed an estimated $300,000 to $800,000 on Matthews' 8-10-carat emerald-cut diamond rock. The amount in question is a drop in the ocean, considering the fact that Mahomes displaced Russell Wilson as the National Football League's highest-earner the same year.

She walked down the aisle in Maui

Brittany Matthews and Patrick Mahomes tied the knot in Maui, Hawaii in March 2022. The couple announced their newly acquired status in a collaborative Instagram post with pictures of their destination wedding, simply captioned, "Mr. & Mrs. Mahomes," with a white heart emoji in tow. The color, a universal symbol of harmony, was in many ways a reflection of how the ceremony went according to a little birdie who spoke to E!.

"Brittany and Patrick's wedding day was very peaceful and fun," the unnamed source gave away, adding that the couple danced like no one was watching.

In an Instagram interaction with her fans, Matthews explained that choosing Hawaii, their first holiday destination as partners, was an easy task. "The weather and views are just perfection there! I wanted somewhere where people couldn't just pull up to lol," she raved, per People. As for her choice of cake, there were multiple flavors for their guests to savor, including carrot and red velvet. Mahomes, on the other hand, opted for cookies and cream.

Brittany Matthews had a dog-themed gender reveal party

Althought it's not unusual for couples to get creative with gender reveal parties, Brittany Matthews went all out in her October 2020 fun announcement. Matthews had her pet dogs do the modeling while her friends and family watched via video call. "Yes, my dogs walked down a run way with pink paws for the reveal," she captioned an Instagram post along with the confirmation that a baby girl was on the way.

Two months later, Matthews shared video footage of an all-pink baby shower in which her family and friends were in attendance, and Patrick Mahomes, who wasn't present, voiced a sweet message: "I hope you're having an amazing time at your baby shower and that it's everything that you can dream of," he said. " You're gonna be the best mom ever, and I hope that I can be just as good as dad."

The couple's first child, Sterling Skye Mahomes was born on February 20, 2021. Matthews posted a picture of Sterling's tiny little hand clutching Patrick's finger on Instagram, in a shot that had her sporting a customized neckpiece with her daughter's first name as a pendant.

The couple welcomed baby No. 2 in 2022

In May 2022, Patrick Mahomes tweeted that there was a second bun baking in the oven. His caption was as simple as it gets: "Round 2." Less than a month later, there was a second gender reveal party, one which had all guests certain that a boy was on the way. Mahomes couldn't contain his excitement when this was confirmed; he tossed himself in a pool while fully dressed.

Matthews' pregnancy came with its share of cravings, her most notorious one being a pizza order whose late delivery she tweeted about. "When you got the pregnant woman at home and she doesn't ... she's not getting her food, she's never gonna be happy," Mahomes commented on the tweet — which caused a buzz online — when he spoke on the Drive podcast.

Toward the end of 2022, the Mahomes family got even bigger when baby Patrick "Bronze" Lavon Mahomes III was born on September 28. As usual, the announcement of his birth came with a custom chain boldly bearing his name. Dressed in a nude onesie which was also the theme of Brittany Matthews' second baby shower, Bronze's face didn't make it to social media and hasn't since.
