Sweet Sterling Patrick MahomesAnd Brittany MatthewsThey became parents in February 2021, and have been documenting their lives together ever since.
The couple began dating in high school, and they got engaged in August 2020. The proposal came on the heels of Mahomes’ Super Bowl LIV win, and he told 610 Radio at the time that he was “probably” more nervous about getting down on one knee than playing against the San Francisco 49ers.
“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,” the groom-to-be explained.
The Kansas City Chiefs player wrote via Instagram at the time that it was “RING SZN.” The bride-to-be gushed, “This happened today. My heart is so full! I love this man so much, and today was so special! Couldn’t imagine this day being anymore [SIC] perfect!”
She went on to write in a separate social media upload: “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. I will never forget the words you spoke to me as you looked into mine. This day was perfect because of you. You took my breath away and made it so special. You are my forever and ever! Cheers to spending our lifetime together and an inseparable bond.”
Matthews, a professional football player, proposed to Matthews one month later.
“Mom and Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding,” the former professional soccer player captioned the September 2020 social media upload, while her fiancé captioned a post of his own with a heart emoji.
When their daughter arrived, the Texas natives initially chose to keep the infant’s face hidden from their social media followers. Matthews explained in February 2021: “We will share photos of her when we [feel]The time is right. I know that the Internet will instantly upload photos of her and share them everywhere, so I’m just preparing for my newborn baby girl’s arrival to the world! Right now, we are just soaking in every minute with her.”
Four months later, Sterling made her Instagram debut. “Hi, my name is Sterling,” the new mom wrote alongside sweet June 2021 snaps from a family photo shoot.
That same month, Mahomes celebrated his first Father’s Day. His fiancée posted an Instagram slideshow full of sweet father-daughter moments, writing, “We love you.”
The quarterback did the same in May 2021, writing to Matthews: “Happy first Mother’s Day!”
Sterling’s proud parents tied the knot in March 2022 in Hawaii, nearly two years after getting engaged.
