Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes's Father Was Also a Professional Athlete
Now that Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is in the Super Bowl, fans want to learn about his family. Meet his parents here!
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is quite the stud in the NFL. He's headed to the Super Bowl for the third time on Sunday, Feb. 12 to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles. Now, fans are curious to know more about his personal life — and specifically, his parents. Scroll down to meet the athlete's family!
Who are Patrick Mahomes's parents?
Patrick's parents are Pat Mahomes Sr. and Randi Martin. His mother is white and his father is Black. The two reportedly divorced when Patrick was just 11 years old — but for the sake of their son, they've remained civil and are able to watch his football games amicably.
Patrick's father, Pat Mahomes Sr., was a professional athlete as well. He is a former professional baseball pitcher who played for teams including the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, and Pittsburgh Pirates from 1992 until 2003.
So yes, Patrick was certainly born with athletic genes and grew up around professional sports, thanks to his dad. Although he didn't choose to take the pro baseball route, he did play college baseball at Texas Tech University. However, he opted to pursue a life in professional football instead and was drafted by the Chiefs in 2017.
Does Patrick Mahomes have siblings?
Patrick's mother, Randi, just like his father, is also very proud of her successful son. She is also a mom to Patrick's two younger siblings, brother Jackson Mahomes and sister Mia Randall, both of whom Patrick adores.
Patrick's parents and his siblings are often featured on the professional athlete's Instagram page with heartwarming photos and sweet shout-outs. By the looks of it, despite his parents' divorce, they are still a tight-knit, supportive family.
In an interview, Randi gushed about how her son is truly living the dream. “It’s truly been a blessing,” she told KSHB. “I tell him that all the time. [It’s] a blessing that, you know, little boys dream about. He’s gotten to actually live a dream. So, you know, we take it — I take it one day at a time and try to enjoy it. It is a little overwhelming.”
Is Patrick Mahomes married? Does he have kids?
Patrick has built his own adorable family with his wife Brittany Mahomes and their two little kids, daughter Sterling Skye, born in February 2021, and son, Patrick "Bronze" Lavon Mahomes III, born in late November 2022.
Patrick and Brittany tied the knot in March 2022 after meeting in high school and dating for years. Brittany is a certified personal trainer and owner of Brittany Lynne Fitness, and she and Patrick are two of the co-owners of the Kansas City Current, a professional women's soccer team.
