Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and fiancée Brittany Matthews announced the birth of their first child on their Instagram pages.
Sterling Skye Mahomes was born Saturday, and weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces. The couple each posted a photo of their daughter holding Matthews’ finger as she wore a “Sterling'” necklace.
Mahomes had told reporters during the week before Super Bowl 55 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that the due date was “coming up pretty quickly.”
The couple got engaged on Sept. 1, 2020, the same day the Chiefs received their Super Bowl 54 rings. Mahomes proposed to Matthews in a suite at Arrowhead Stadium.
Four weeks later, they announced that Matthews was pregnant, as she held a photo of an ultrasound. Nearly a month later, they announced in a gender reveal that they were having a girl.
Mahomes wasn’t able to win his second consecutive Super Bowl, but he now can say he’s a #GirlDad.
