He is already the father of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II saluted Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III out into the world on November 28, 2022.
“It’s great to bring a son into my family,” he said
The little boy, who weighed seven pounds, also arrived at an opportune time.
He was born Monday night, and the Chiefs had Tuesday off before returning to practice on Wednesday.
The Chiefs have a big AFC Championship Game rematch against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, but Mahomes II’s new baby shouldn’t spoil the quarterback’s preparation for that upcoming tilt.
“He’s quite focused on his work. He’s got a great wife who gets all of that,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. “‘Bronze’ is in good hands.”
This nickname is quite appropriate. Mahomes II’s eldest child, who was born on February 20, 2021, is named Sterling Skye Mahomes and he and his wife Brittany own a pair of dogs named Steel and Silver.
Since he was five or six years old, Mahomes II had the idea of giving a son the family name Patrick Mahomes III so that he could name him “Tre”. But his brother Jackson recently suggested the nickname “Bronze” because it goes perfectly with Sterling, Steel and Silver.
“‘Bronze,'” Reid said, “I love it.”
Mahomes III will be able to buy any bullion he wants.
His father ensured that the family will have generational wealth.
Mahomes II is the highest paid player in the NFL. His 10-year, $450 million contract, which expires after the 2031 season, is the most lucrative in terms of both total value and contract length. In addition, he has a ton of recommendations including Adidas, Coors Light, Oakley, Head & Shoulders, State Farm, Bose, and Electronic Arts
These riches are earned. Mahomes II already has a Super Bowl MVP and a regular-season MVP, and may be on his way to another regular-season honor.
Mahomes II leads the NFL in passing yards (3,585) and touchdowns (29) and is in the midst of a hot streak. He is the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for at least 320 yards in six straight games.
Not only may Mahomes III inherit these transcendent athletic genes from his father, but his mother Brittany also played college soccer at the University of Texas at Tyler and professionally for UMF Afturelding/Fram in Iceland.
The athletic line extends to family patriarch Patrick Lavon Mahomes Sr., who enjoyed an 11-year career in Major League Baseball with the Minnesota Twins, New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Rangers and backed by the Chicago Cubs.
Along with a host of family, including Mahomes II’s maternal grandparents, Mahomes Sr. was present at the birth of “Bronze.”
“He sure was emotional,” Mahomes II said. “My dad has gotten a little more emotional as he’s gotten older — like all of us.”
Perhaps the former pitcher was beaming at the next big NFL passer.
Reid joked that this was the players’ conversation in the Chiefs locker room.
“If they play long enough,” Reid said, “we’ll have another quarterback here.”
