Already following in Mom and Dad's footsteps!

Earlier this week, Brittany Matthews shared on her Instagram Story that her daughter with her fiancé Patrick Mahomes, Sterling Skye, received a national letter of intent from Texas Tech University.

The letter of intent says the student-athlete — in this case, newborn Sterling — "will be recommended by the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics at Texas Tech University to receive a Soccer scholarship."

Dated for Feb. 22, two days after Sterling's birth, the notice is also signed by Kirby Hocutt, the university's director of athletics.

"@PatrickMahomes She's ready," Matthews, 25 — who played soccer at the University of Texas at Tyler Graduate School — wrote alongside the letter from Sterling's dad's alma mater.

The longtime couple began dating in their teens and got engaged in early September, with the quarterback, also 25, popping the question to the former pro soccer player after the Chiefs' Super Bowl ring ceremony.

Later that month, they announced the pregnancy news, adding that they were "taking a small detour to the wedding."

The couple found out the sex of their baby on the way in October, both embracing and sharing in excitement about expecting a daughter.

Prior to that, when asked on The Drive in September whether he was hoping for a son or daughter, Mahomes said, "I'm just super excited to hopefully have a healthy baby and someone I'll be able to love for the rest of my life."

Mahomes and Matthews are also getting ready to say "I do," as the new mom revealed earlier this month that she and her NFL quarterback beau have officially set a date and location for their upcoming nuptials.

Matthews shared the exciting news on Instagram alongside photos of the couple from a romantic shoot. In the sweet shots, the couple are seen hugging one another and cuddling on a grand staircase.

"It's wedding planning time👰🏼‍♀️ We have a date & place wahoooooo🥂," Matthews wrote. The fitness influencer also included the hashtag, "2022," suggesting that the couple won't plan to tie the knot until next year.
