While 2020 has been a year many would like to forget, it is a year NFL Quarterback Patrick Mahomes you may want to remember for a very long time.
In February, the convener handed Kansas City Chiefs signals to the Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. In July, the athlete signed a major 10-year contract extension worth about $ 500 million. Then, in September, Mahomes and his British girlfriend Matthews got engaged and announced that they are expecting their first child together.
How long Mahomes and Matthews have been together
Mahomes and Matthews have known each other since they were teenagers. They started dating when they went to Whitehouse High School in Texas together.
The two continued the relationship even though they went to different colleges. Mahomes went to Texas Tech University in Lubbock and Matthews enrolled at Tyler University of Texas.
Today, the pair live in the Kansas City area near Arrowhead Stadium where the Chiefs play and are expecting a young girl in due course.
On Sept. 29, the athlete and her boyfriend shared their baby news via social media. Each posted a sonogram with their accounts. “Just a short walk to the wedding,” Matthews wrote. While Mahomes shared a picture similar to a heart emoji.
Mahomes admitted he was nervous their first Christmas together
Mahomes talked about his first Christmas with his future bride in his weekly hospitality venue KCSP Sports Radio 610‘s The Drive.
“Man, that was back in high school … I had to go to her family and she came to me,” he remembered. “I think at the time we had been going for a month or two so normal kids showed up at this kind of family dinner to be anxious and all. ”
The quarterback said it was also zero-racking and like the movie Four Christmas because he and Matthews “had to go to every member of our family’s Christmas parties and they spent the whole day going from house to house trying to make sure we saw everyone.”
What Mahomes and Matthews’ mother will get him for the holidays
Mahomes was also asked what kind of gifts he will receive for Christmas.
“Wales, and my mum, usually find things that I use and that are very useful to me,” he told guests Carrington Harrison and Sean Levine. “I feel like those are the best [gifts] for me because they are stuff that i don’t think about getting and they get em to me and they will be sweet gifts that i can use. ”
The NFL star and her boyfriend are really looking forward to next Christmas when their baby is about to celebrate with him. “With bubbles I can see everything. I see the whole process of [Brittany] going through pregnancy and everything like that, ”Mahomes explained. “Hopefully just after the Super Bowl [we’re] able to bring a little girl into this world and [I] get to be a father in due time. ”
