Patrick and Brittany Mahomes are Kansas City’s power couple, but it took time for the budding romance to turn into true love.
In the first episode of Netflix’s Quarterback docuseries, the couple shared how they first met and became the adorable, beloved family we know today.
How Patrick and Brittany Mahomes Met
“We…met in seventh, eighth grade,” recalls the two-time Super Bowl MVP. “She was a grade above me. I was like the best friend, in the friend zone forever.”
To achieve your greatest accomplishments, you need to put the work in, right?
Mahomes adds, “I used to walk her to class and was trying to flirt. When I was a sophomore in high school and she was a junior, I actually got her a rose…I had a crush on her.”
He says he got the Valentine’s Day rose as a “joke” that he hoped she would take seriously. It worked.
Brittany fondly remembers, “He thought it was a joke. I thought it was the cutest thing in the world.” Then, the peer pressure mounted. “And then everyone at our lunch table started chanting, ‘Kiss him, kiss him’ and made it really awkward…because we were ‘just friends.’ So yeah, that’s kind of what started it and I thought it was cute.”
Her story was then interrupted by Patrick yelling at their dog Silver, a nice touch showing how far the lovebirds have come.
“So they were chanting, and I thought it was kind of awkward,” the former soccer player and co-owner of the KC Current continued. “I was like, ‘Okay, this guy is actually kind of cute. Maybe I do like him.”
The rest is history. Fast-forward to the present and the couple has two children, just built their dream home, and are heavily involved in numerous business ventures throughout Kansas City.
Brittany’s love of and support for Patrick is evident throughout the series. You can stream Quarterback on Netflix starting today to see more insight into the Mahomes family, their challenges and their successes en route to the 2022-23 Super Bowl victory.
