It’s safe to say that 2021 is shaping up to be a pretty massive year for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Not only is he heading to the Super Bowl on Feb. 7, where he'll face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he's also getting ready to welcome his first child with fiancée Brittany Matthews. It turns out Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews' baby is due soon.

The news that these two were expecting dropped (where else?) on Instagram. The happy couple shared their baby news with a photo of themselves holding a sonogram on Sept. 29. No caption was needed because, in this case, the photo said it all. While the couple hasn't shared an exact due date, couples don't typically go public with their pregnancy news until at least the 12-week mark. If Mahomes and Matthews are indeed sticking to that timeline, it means their little one may arrive in April (if not sooner).

While they haven't shared a definitive due date yet, the couple did reveal their baby’s sex: They're expecting a baby girl. Both of them tweeted the news, but Mahomes’ simple ”#girldad” caption is the cutest.

The great baby news came on the heels of another positive event. Mahomes popped the question in the most epic fashion on Sept. 1. The same day he received his Super Bowl LIV ring, he surprised Matthews with an elaborate proposal that included a white floral wall and bright lights that spelled out, “Will you marry me?” Of course, Matthews said yes.

The couple are high school sweethearts who've been dating since Mahomes was in the 10th grade and Matthews was in the 11th. Through the years, they’ve stuck by one another. From their junior prom to now planning a wedding and starting a family, this is exactly the kind of epic story that can make just about anyone believe in love.

This is going to be the cutest, most loved, most athletic baby!
