Not many people can say they were lucky enough to meet their soulmate in high school, but Brittany Matthews and Patrick Mahomes can. The two first met when they both attended Whitehouse High School in Whitehouse, Texas, and they started dating while Mahomes was in the 10th grade. This is why some of Brittany Matthews’ sweetest quotes about Patrick Mahomes come from her memories of when they first fell in love.
After graduating, the two attended different colleges in their home state of Texas. The distance couldn't keep them apart, however. Even when Matthews moved to Iceland while playing professional soccer with UMF Afturelding/Fram, they maintained a long-distance relationship. Her team won their league in September 2017, but by October that same year she'd relocated to Kansas City with Mahomes, who'd begun playing for the Chiefs.
After eight years of dating, the two got engaged when Mahomes proposed to Matthews shortly after the Super Bowl ring ceremony on Sept. 1, 2020. Later that same month, the couple had another huge announcement for fans: they were expecting their first child. With a love story like this, it's no wonder Matthews never misses the chance to gush about her love. Here are the sweetest and most glowing things she's had to say about her forever teammate.
