The two high school sweethearts finally tied the knot after becoming engaged in September 2020. Mahomes' brother, Jackson Mahomes, was the best man for the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback. His teammate Travis Kelce was also a groomsman.
The only person happier than Mahomes and Matthews was Mahomes' mother, Randi Martin.
Randi took to Twitter Sunday to post an adorable picture of herself getting married when Patrick was a toddler. She included a picture of herself and her son in the present day for comparison. Her caption read:
"My firstborn is married!!! God is great."
On a day when the bride and groom are traditionally the centers of attention, it's often the parents who are the most emotional at seeing their children get married.
Given how close the Mahomes family is, it was a wholesome moment to see the family's matriarch post the side-by-side image.
Patrick Mahomes is incredibly close with his family
Patrick Mahomes' family is often scrutinized by the media. Matthews herself has been on the receiving end of negative comments on social media regularly.
Both herself and Mahomes' brother, Jackson, are die-hard fans of the Chiefs and their quarterback. They've posted videos of themselves cheering as loudly as anyone in Arrowhead Stadium (or any stadium for that matter.)
Sometimes, their fandom has gone too far, such as when Jackson poured a bottle of water on a fan's head in the row below him.
Their personalities have gotten so critiqued that there have been reports Patrick Mahomes banned them from attending his future games. The 2018 MVP swiftly put a stop to those reports.
For all the times Matthews and Mahomes have been criticized, Mahomes has defended them through thick and thin. When people speculated the two were having a spat at an NBA game courtside, Mahomes again shut down the rumors.
Mahomes and Matthews have a one-year-old daughter, Sterling Skye Mahomes. Mahomes has been vocal about his love of fatherhood, including during last year's Thanksgiving when he and LeBron James exchanged a back and forth about the topic on Twitter.
Now that he's a married man, we'll see how Mahomes plays for the Chiefs in 2022. After an early season slump in 2021, the former first-round pick changed his style of play to adapt to defenses.
The Chiefs figure to be Super Bowl contenders as long as No. 15 is their quarterback.
