The couple started out as two friends in Texas who went to school together. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback became close with Matthews in 2011 when he was just a freshman at Whitehouse High School.
After dating for several years, the pair attended different colleges but remained an item.
“He ended up going to Texas Tech, and that’s when it really hit me, ‘Oh s—t, he might go play professional football,” Matthews told Today in December 2020 of her then-fiancé’s football skills. “It was surreal to see him living his dream and seeing him grow as an athlete and as a man in general was just amazing.”
They cemented their relationship in March 2022 when they said “I do” in Hawaii. Mahomes and Matthews have since embraced married life — and the craziness that comes with raising two children.
