Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is gearing up for the stretch run of the 2022 NFL season, but he and his wife Brittany also welcomed their son and made a subsequent announcement earlier this week. Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III, the newest addition to the Mahomes family, is taking the city and the internet by storm.
Mahomes said on Wednesday that “everything went great” with his son and that his wife “is a champ” for how she handled delivering their second child. Even with a big-time game against the Cincinnati Bengals approaching on Sunday, neither Mahomes nor head coach Andy Reid is worried about missing out on any preparation. Mahomes’s Chiefs teammates are also thrilled about Patrick III being brought into the world, joking that he could be their new quarterback down the road.
When me and Brittany, when we had Sterling, we didn’t know if it was a girl or boy at first,” Mahomes said. “So we started thinking of girl and boy names. We wanted them to have that connection and them to be brother and sister forever. I’ve always wanted to do Patrick Lavon Mahomes III. I’ve thought about that since I was literally like five or six years old. I always thought it was going to be “Trey” as the third — you hear of a lot of people doing that. My brother Jackson, whenever we were trying to find something that was a little unique and different, he said, “What about Bronze? It fits perfectly with Sterling.’ We went with that, and I think it works out well.”
