The year 2020 keeps getting better for Patrick Mahomes.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and Brittany Matthews, his fiancée, announced on social media Tuesday that they will soon be having a baby. The couple has been together for years and recently became engaged.
Mahomes’ year got off to a great start in January, when he led the Chiefs to their first appearance in the Super Bowl in 50 years. Mahomes then was the MVP of Super Bowl LIV as the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 on Feb. 2.
Mahomes, 25, received the richest contract in U.S. team sports history over the summer when he signed a 10-year extension that could pay him almost $500 million. Mahomes, who grew up in baseball clubhouses going to games with his dad, Pat Mahomes — a major league pitcher for 11 seasons — bought into the ownership group of the Kansas City Royals in July.
Shortly before the start of the season, the quarterback received his Super Bowl championship ring and became engaged on the same day.
