Members of the Kansas City Chiefs received their Super Bowl rings Tuesday. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, though, had his own to give away — perhaps on one knee.
Mahomes proposed to longtime girlfriend Brittany Matthews, according to her social media. It looks like Mahomes had an assortment of flowers arranged in an Arrowhead Stadium suite with some spelling out “Will You Marry Me?” as part of the big ask. The Super Bowl MVP also posted a photo of the diamond with the caption “Ring SZN.”
The couple have been dating since they were students at Whitehouse High School in Texas, according to The Kansas City Star. Matthews turned 25 this week, and Mahomes will be 25 on Sept. 17.
Mahomes, who signed a contract extension worth more than $500 million this offseason, and his teammates received rings with engraved markings of the postseason scores that resulted in the franchise’s first Super Bowl in 50 years, along with the deficits the Chiefs faced in each game.
