Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has found his soulmate in longtime girlfriend Brittany Matthews. She is his childhood sweetheart. Their childhood love affair adds a romantic touch to the story of a couple whose determination for success, love, and support of one another has helped propel Mahomes to the top of his profession.
Mahomes and Matthews, who have been in a relationship since they were teens, have both worked diligently on their career ambitions since being together. Mahomes studied and perfected his sport, moving up the ladder to be a star player on the Chiefs. Meanwhile, Brittany carved a niche out for herself in the industry, first as a professional soccer player and now as a fitness model.
Although for years distance made the couple's relationship a challenge -- as both moved around frequently to pursue their passions -- they have finally put down roots. They purchased a $1.925 million house in Kansas City in early 2019, according to USA Today. The duo reportedly plans on staying put in the area "for a long time."
As fans gear up to watch Patrick and his teammates take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, one thing is sure, Matthews will cheer for Mahomes the loudest, hoping he will take home a game ring and a big win alongside his team.

In the photos, the lovebirds can be seen in their finery, getting ready for a night out with their friends as they celebrated the end of high school life.
After graduation, Mahomes went on to play football at Texas Tech University while Matthews played college soccer at the University of Texas at Tyler. Even while both were focused on their studies and sports ambitions at different schools, the couple continued to maintain their relationship in spite of the physical distance between them.
When a professional opportunity presented itself for Matthews to play soccer in Iceland as part of the pro team UMF Afturelding/Fram, she knew that she could rely on Mahomes to support her as she challenged herself professionally.
