The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback celebrated his daughter Sterling's third birthday on Feb. 20, writing in an Instagram post, "Happy 3rd birthday Sterling Skye! You are my [heart]! Stop growing up so fast!!"
Just one week earlier, Mahomes celebrated with Sterling as well as his wife Brittany Mahomes and their son Patrick "Bronze" Lavon Mahomes III as his team won their second straight Super Bowl title, defeating the San Francisco 49ers in overtime on Feb. 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
During a press conference ahead of the big game, Patrick Mahomes discussed how he communicates with his kids when he’s away from them.
"Yeah, I always FaceTime them whenever I'm not with them and talk to them throughout the day. Bronze is running around now, starting to walk," he told reporters, according to People magazine, adding, "It's always great when I get to talk to them."
Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Mahomes have been together since they were in high school. The couple tied the knot on March 12, 2022, after welcoming their first child in 2021. They welcomed their second child in November 2022.
Speaking to "Good Morning America" in 2023, the NFL player discussed what it means to be a dad after becoming a father of two.
"It gives you a different perspective," he said at the time. "You enjoy every day so much more and having them, the years fly by and just try to do whatever I can to enjoy the little moments."
