Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his fiancée, Brittany Matthews, have been privately enjoying their first month as new parents―and now they're ready to give the world the first look at their sweet baby girl!
The couple, both 25, shared their first photo of their daughter, Sterling Skye Mahomes, on Saturday in honor of her 1 month birthday. In the photo, Mahomes is cradling the little girl, whose face is turned away from the camera, and giving her a big smile.
"1 month," Mahomes wrote, along with a heart emoji. Matthews also shared the photo, with the message: "Ster is 1 month."
"omg! my heart literally just melted! he is the best dad in the world," one person wrote on Matthews' page.
"So cute!! She looks like she’s cheering him on," another fan added.
The sweet moment between father and daughter was the first time the couple has shared a full photo of Sterling. A birth announcement showed the newborn's tiny hand grasping her mother's finger. In that photo, Matthews was wearing a necklace with her daughter's name.
Brittany Matthews previously explained why she and Mahomes wanted to wait before they shared photos of their baby girl.
"We will share photos of her when we (feel) the time is right," she wrote on Instagram one week after giving birth. "I know the Internet will instantly take the photos of her and share everywhere so just preparing myself for my newborn baby girl to be shared to the world!”
The couple announced in September 2020 that they were expecting their first child by posting a photo on Instagram of them holding a sonogram. The high school sweethearts also got engaged the same month at the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl ring ceremony.
