It's been a whirlwind three years for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and wife Brittany Matthews. The NFL star, who made his second Super Bowl appearance in 2021, has welcomed plenty of life milestones alongside his soaring football career. After his victorious 2019-2020 NFL season, where he led the Chiefs to win Super Bowl LIV, their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years, he became the youngest quarterback to ever be named MVP at age 24. He went on to sign a record-breaking 10-year, $503 million contract—the biggest in the history of sports. In 2021, Mahomes once again led the Chiefs to the Super Bowl (where they ultimately fell short against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers).

Off the field, Mahomes experienced plenty of personal wins too. In 2020, he got engaged to longtime love Brittany Matthews, a personal trainer and fitness entrepreneur. Just months later, they welcomed their first child shortly after Super Bowl LV. And on March 12, 2022, they finally got married at a sunny beachside ceremony in Hawaii. We break down everything you need to know about the famous duo—including their wedding details—below.

How Patrick Mahomes & Brittany Matthews Met

Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews have been with each other since the beginning. The childhood sweethearts met at Whitehouse High School in Whitehouse, Texas, and even attended prom together in 2013. They occasionally share sweet throwback photos documenting their early days as a young couple.

Matthews has been a constant supporter throughout Mahomes' record-breaking career. In February 2020, she gushed about his accomplishments while on the famed post-Super Bowl trip to Disney World. "I am so beyond proud of this dude and this team," she wrote on Instagram. "All year it was about battling, amazing comebacks and overcoming an injury, and for that YOU DESERVE THIS, no better way to end it than at this Magical Place!!"

How Patrick Mahomes Proposed to Brittany Matthews

Patrick Mahomes got engaged to Brittany Matthews on August 1, 2020. The romantic proposal, which happened one day after Matthews' 25th birthday, took place in a VIP box at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, just after the team received their Super Bowl 54 rings. The bride-to-be shared a glimpse into the proposal set up on Instagram, which included lavish arrangements of white flowers and light-up marquee letters that said "Will You Marry Me," writing, "So this happened today!"

The NFL star gave the first look at Matthews' engagement ring, writing, "Ring SZN" and tagging his new fiancée. The ring is an elongated emerald-cut diamond placed on a double pavé band.

The couple then enjoyed a private candle-lit dinner. "My heart is so full," Matthews wrote on Instagram. "Couldn't imagine this day being any more perfect!"

The moment didn't come without a few jitters though. In an interview with 610 Sports Radio, Mahomes later confessed that proposing was more nerve-wracking than the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LIV (when he led his team to a come-from-behind win). "You don't think it's going to be nerve-wracking, especially when you've been with someone for so long, but before you get on that knee, your heart's racing, I promise you that," he said.

Brittany Matthews & Patrick Mahomes' Baby Girl Joins The Family

In October 2020, just two months after getting engaged, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together, due in February 2021. "Mom & Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding❤️," Matthews captioned the reveal on Instagram, which highlighted her growing bump. The two openly gushed about their excitement for their first baby. "Hopefully right after the Super Bowl, I'm able to bring a little girl into this world," Mahomes remarked on Kansas City radio show The Drive in December. "And [I] get to become a dad in the offseason and get to see that process as well."

Mere weeks after Mahomes made his second Super Bowl appearance, he and Matthews welcomed their daughter, Sterling Skye, on February 20. Mahomes posted a photo of his baby girl's newborn hand wrapped entirely around his fiancée's finger. Matthews added on her Instagram page that the child weighed in at six pounds, 11 ounces.

Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for their little one to attend her first sporting event. The couple, who openly document their journey into parenthood, shared photos of Sterling's first Kansas City Royals baseball game on Opening Day 2021 with her parents. (She even wore a custom Mahomes shirt for the occasion.)

Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews' Wedding Details

On March 12, 2022, Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews got married in Maui, Hawaii. Their long-awaited nuptials, planned by industry maven Mindy Weiss, came over a year after Mahomes popped the question back in 2020. The lavish party was a family affair: Their daughter, Sterling, joined them for photos at the altar (donning her own white wedding dress), and Mahomes' brother, Jackson, served as his best man. Mahomes' teammate Travis Kelce was also a groomsman, while his girlfriend Kayla was a bridesmaid. The bride wore a sexy Versace wedding gown with cutouts on the bodice, while the groom opted for a gray suit with printed shoes.

After teasing their wedding in the week leading up to the big event, the newlyweds shared a slideshow of photos on Instagram from their big day with the caption, "Mr. & Mrs. Mahomes 🤍."
