Patrick Mahomes may be focused on the Super Bowl, but his fiancee Brittany Matthews’ due date is approaching “pretty quickly” according to the Chiefs star quarterback. During his Super Bowl media availability, Mahomes declined to give the specific due date for baby Mahomes but indicated the day is coming sooner rather than later.
“I’m not supposed to tell, but it’s coming up pretty quickly,” Mahomes responded when asked about the due date.
Could Mahomes have to pull double duty with a Super Bowl baby? Mahomes stopped short of saying there would not be a baby on game day, but the Chiefs quarterback admitted the couple is hoping for their daughter’s arrival a “few weeks after the game.”
“First off, we’re extremely ready,” Mahomes explained. “We’re excited. We have all the things planned out and every single gadget and toy you can have to be great parents. At the same time, I’m trying to tell her to hold off until after the game. Whenever it happens, it happens, but if we could wait until maybe a few weeks after the game that would probably be ideal.”
