Patrick Mahomes & Brittany Matthews' Love Story — from High School Sweethearts to Engagement
Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews were together for nearly a decade before the quarterback asked for her hand in marriage. Here’s their story.
As the world stands still amid the coronavirus pandemic, Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews’ relationship continued to grow.
Recently, the NFL star asked his girlfriend of nearly a decade to spend the rest of her life with him. Their love story is one for the books.
HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS
The couple first crossed paths in Whitehouse High School, Texas, where they began dating in tenth grade. Although they went to separate colleges, their relationship stood strong.
One thing that bonded the pair was their love for sports. Matthews went to the University of Texas, where she attained a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and played soccer while Mahomes played football at Texas Tech University.
The athletes continued their sports after graduating as Matthews signed for UMF Afturelding/Fram, where she won a league championship, while Mahomes joined the Kansas City Chiefs.
Although she no longer plays as a professional athlete, Matthews still works in line with building a stronger physique. She runs the fitness company Brittany Lynne Fitness and creates programs as a certified personal trainer.
On September 1, 2020, the star quarterback knelt on one knee and asked his longtime partner to marry him.
In 2019, the couple purchased a Mission Hills home in Kansas for $1.925 million and renovated it to their ideal home.
Living in Kansas was a decision based on Mathews and Mahomes’ experience and love for the people there. Together, they are parents to two dogs, Steel and Silver.
In one of her posts, the health guru shared a glimpse of their afternoon stroll with Steel and Silver. “My world, my family, my best friends,” she wrote.
