Patrick Mahomes emphasizes the importaпce of appreciatiпg a womaп who stood by yoυ wheп yoυ had пothiпg, who sυpported yoυr dreams. He expresses deep gratitυde to his wife for her υпwaveriпg sυpport.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes subscribes to the notion that there is a great woman behind every great man.

The 27-year-old athlete credited his spouse, Brittany, with helping him achieve success both personally and professionally. “I have a great wife. I think that helps out a ton,” Mahomes told People at the premiere of his new Netflix documentary series, “Quarterback.”

“She helps me out a ton by taking stuff off my plate,” he said. “I have great people around me and I can be Patrick Mahomes. I can be myself, the same person I’ve grown up being — and luckily that’s won a couple of Super Bowls.”

The couple married in July 2022 and share a daughter, Sterling Skye, 2, and a son, Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III, who is eight months old. He and Brittany met as high schoolers in Texas and went to the prom together in 2013.

After college, Mahomes was a first-round selection in the 2017 NFL draft. Brittany is also a pro athlete and was signed to play soccer with a professional team in Iceland.

The NFL star told People magazine he’s trying hard to set a good example for his children. Mahomes said he hopes they know “that when dad’s not home, he’s out there working hard to achieve his dream.”

“I don’t know what my kids’ dreams are going to be, but I want them to work hard at it and try to achieve those,” he said. “Now they’re too young now to understand, but when they see this as they get older, I want them to know that they can go out there and chase their dreams and still have a great family at home.”

Brittany was equally complimentary toward her husband. “He has a soft spot, but I think he’s done such an amazing job at balancing his work life and his at-home life, and I think he’s really switched around his priorities and figured it out,” she told People. She also called her husband “the best father ever.”

The docuseries “Quarterback” premieres July 12 on Netflix. It follows Mahomes and players Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota as they provide inside access into their lives as NFL quarterbacks.
