Brittany Matthews Reacts to Boyfriend Patrick Mahomes’ Record-Setting Deal: 'I'm So Proud of You'
Mahomes, who led the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl win in February, inked a huge deal that could reportedly net him up to $503 million over 10 years
It's a jaw-dropping contract for sure, but it could be worth every penny: The 24-year-old led the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers in February and has long been labeled one of the league's most talented quarterbacks.
After the record-breaking deal was announced, Matthews posted a selfie with her beau to her Instagram Story with a simple message that read "I'm so proud of you." Matthew and Mahomes have been together since they met in Texas as 10th graders, according to Yahoo Sports.
Matthews — who operates her own fitness company, Brittany Lynne Fitness — posted several other pictures from the signing with the caption "Let me tell y’all about my best friend, he earned that ish." The message also included pink heart emoji.
But Matthews wasn't the only one to celebrate her boyfriend's big day.
Kansas City Head Coach Andy Reid called Mahomes one of the most "incredible athletes and special people" he's been able to coach throughout his storied career.
"He's a natural leader and always grinding, whether that's on the field, in the weight room or watching film," Reid said. "He wants to be the best."
Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson also reached out to Mahomes to offer his congratulations.
