AceShowbiz - Congratulations are in order for Patrick Mahomes. More than four months after confirming his fiancee Brittany Matthews' pregnancy, the NFL star finally became a first-time father as he welcomed their first child together.
The 25-year-old broke the happy news via Instagram on Sunday, February 21. Posting a picture of the tot's tiny hand with theirs while the new mom flaunted a necklace bearing the word "Sterling", he penned, "Sterling Skye Mahomes. 2/20/21 [red heart emoji]."
Patrick's post has since been flooded with positive comments from many. One in particular was his younger brother Jackson Mahomes who exclaimed, "YOU WILL BE THE BEST DAD!!! CANT WAIT FOR ALL THE ADVENTURES!!" Fellow NFL star Dez Bryan additionally raved, "Congratulations." Darius Leonard sent out similar sentiment, "Congratulations bro!"
Also posting the identical snap on her own Instagram page was Patrick's fiancee Brittany. Though generally offered similar message in her caption, she did add a few more details about her new bundle of joy. She noted that their baby girl weighed 6lbs 11oz at the time of her birth.
The baby news came after just a few days after Brittany treated her Instagram followers to her maternity pictures.

She went on to unveil some more images with a message that read, "Ready to meet you baby girl."

The lovebirds have been together since high school and got engaged on September 1, 2020. The footballer popped the big question after the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV ring ceremony and one day after she celebrated her 25th birthday.
