Patrick and Brittany Mahomes are the most prominent couple in the NFL right now. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is the reigning Super Bowl and league MVP. This naturally comes with plenty of attention.
Despite being in the league for just a few years, Mahomes is already being compared to NFL legends like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. However, he and his wife Brittany have stayed grounded.
In a question-and-answer session on Instagram, Brittany explained how the couple have stayed humble despite constantly being in the spotlight. She credited their upbringing in a small town and keeping the same family and friend circle.
"Well we are from a small town so I feel like that molded us to always stay true to who you are. And we still have majority of the same group of friends & people around us who still look at us as those kids from east Texas and don't give a sh*t about all the other stuff."
Patrick and Brittany Mahomes have come a long way
The story of Patrick and Brittany began all the way back in high school. Patrick played football and baseball, whereas Brittany played soccer. They both attended Whitehouse High School in East Texas. They started dating in 2012, but had a temporary separation as they went to different colleges.
Patrick went to Texas Tech, whereas Brittany went to the University of Texas at Tyler. However, since both universities were in Texas, their love endured. They reunited in 2017 and have been together ever since. They now have two children together and are married.
