Sterling Skye Mahomes
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and his then-fiancée announced they were expecting their first child Sept. 29, 2020, just weeks after he proposed at Arrowhead Stadium.
Sterling Skye Mahomes was born Feb. 20, 2021.
The couple announced the arrival of their first child with matching Instagram posts, featuring a photo of the newborn clutching her parents' fingers while mom Brittany donned a sparkly nameplate necklace that read "Sterling."
During the early days of Sterling's arrival, her parents kept her face hidden.
“Obviously at first we wanted to keep stuff private and not have her out there,” Patrick told TODAY in 2021. “As we started doing different things and she started getting a little bit older, being out and about, it almost became like a burden to try to hide her at all times when we do stuff, and this coming season we want her to be at the games and not have to worry about hiding her the entire time.”
In 2021, the Mahomes family celebrated Sterling's 1st birthday with an epic birthday bash, which included a cotton candy machine, balloon archway and custom decor.
Sterling makes regular appearances at Kansas City Chiefs football games alongside her mom and extended family members.
Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III
In May 2022, the couple announced via Instagram their family was growing and that Sterling would be a big sister.
“Round 2,” they wrote alongside family photos of their little girl holding up a sign that read, “Big sister duties coming soon.”
Sterling donned a shirt that read "I have a secret to tell you" for the family announcement.
In June, the couple shared the gender of their second child in a sweet Instagram video. In the clip, the duo squirt water guns filled with blue liquid, indicating a boy.
Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III was born Nov. 28, 2022.
The high school sweethearts announced Bronze's arrival in a similar fashion to that of his sister using nameplate jewelry.
“Patrick ‘Bronze’ Lavon Mahomes III 🤴🏽11/28/22 7lbs 8oz” the couple captioned their joint announcement.
“When me and Brittany had Sterling, we didn’t know if it was a girl or boy at first so we started thinking of girl and boys’ names,” he said at the time. “We wanted them to have that connection and them to be brother and sister forever.”
The athlete added, “I’ve always wanted to do Patrick Lavon Mahomes III. I’ve thought about that since I was literally like 5 or 6 years old. I always thought it was going to be ‘Trey’ as a third.”
Patrick credited his brother, Jackson, for his son’s nickname
“He said, ‘What about Bronze? It fits perfectly with Sterling,’ so we went with that,” Patrick said. “It works out well. He can have his own thing now, where he’s not Patrick, he’s Bronze, even though he’s Patrick. Then, Sterling and Bronze can have that connection moving forward.”
While the couple have taken the same approach to obscuring their newborn's face in early days, Bronze has since made appearances on mom Brittany's Instagram story, including a heartwarming moment between siblings.
“She is obsessed & loving her new role,” Brittany wrote on a photo showing Sterling smiling at little brother Bronze on Dec. 3, 2022.
