Nearly four months after welcoming daughter Sterling Skye Mahomes into the world, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and fiancee Brittany Matthews finally revealed her face in the most adorable way. Sharing images of a photo shoot to both Twitter and Instagram, the proud parents are smiling ear to ear while Matthews clutches the future soccer star.
Take a look below:
Sterling Skye was born on February 20 in Kansas City, Missouri. Shortly after Matthews gave birth, the entrepreneur revealed why she and Mahomes weren’t comfortable with a face reveal just yet.

“We will share photos of her when we [feel] the time is right,” Brittany said on her Instagram story. “I know the Internet will instantly take the photos of her and share everywhere so just preparing myself for my newborn baby girl to be shared to the world! Right now we are just soaking in every minute with her.”
Many months later, we’re certainly glad she changed her mind because Sterling Skye is a perfect mix of her Super Bowl MVP father and Kansas City NWSL co-owner mother. Congrats, again, to the happy couple!
The Proud Parents Take Sterling Skye ‘Everywhere’
Since giving birth, Matthews has had to fight off criticism regarding her parenting. Not that it’s anyone’s business anyway, but in March the 25-year-old clarified any doubt and ensured that you see on social media isn’t a complete picture of their daily lives.
“(For the people) that are so concerned about where Sterling has been or if we’ve been leaving her or what she looks like and when we’re going to post a photo, she’s been with us everywhere we go,” Matthews confirmed, via Today.com. “I haven’t left her for more than a few hours because I’m breastfeeding, so I either need to feed her or pump every three or so hours.”
This is not the first time Matthews has fired back at keyboard warriors over her social media activity. Shortly after revealing beautiful images of their regal maternity shoot, she had to defend herself against those who made snide remarks about her choice of dress, theme, etc.
“Well, ladies, not trying to look ‘skinny’ in my maternity pics, I’m very pregnant and not trying to make myself not look pregnant,” she responded to someone who questioned the styling.
“Women being hateful to other women on social media seriously needs to stop! If you have nothing nice to say, THEN STFU,” Matthews continued.
As the saying goes: If you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say anything at all.
Sterling Skye Is Already Quite the Traveler
At nearly four months, Sterling Skye is already on the move and traveling to more states than we can count. As a member of the Kansas City Royals’ ownership group, naturally Mahomes is likely present for a number of matches. With Matthews and Sterling Skye in tow, the happy couple posted photos of her first baseball game in April.
Over Memorial Day weekend in May, Mahomes and Matthews traveled to Hawaii for the former’s inaugural charity golf tournament. While they didn’t post photos of her to social media, Matthews had an interesting revelation about Sterling Skye’s sleeping habits.
Moving to Hawaii sounds fun, but let’s hope they don’t seriously consider that until after Mahomes retires from the league.
