The wait is over.

During the week before the Super Bowl, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes joked his fiancé, Brittany Matthews, could have their first baby during the game.

However, the due date was several weeks later, and today, their child was born. Mahomes and Matthews posted the same photo on their social media channels today.

Sterling Skye Mahomes was born Saturday and weighs 6 pounds and 11 ounces.

Their story based in Tyler has captured the hearts of America with their story, dating since their early high school years at Whitehouse ISD to separate colleges, his career in the NFL and her career as a professional soccer player and now an entrepreneur.
