Brittany Mahomes covered the 60th anniversary of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, and the wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick announced her shooting just days before the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
Mahomes, 28, shared a video of himself posing on a beach in San Pedro, Belize with SI describing him as “unforgiving” ahead of his 2024 May edition.
‘I’m really humbled and I still can’t believe it,’ Mahomes told the publication.
‘As a girl from Tyler, Texas, who only knew sports, I never thought in a million years that I would be in the SI Swimsuit Issue. I am very grateful for this opportunity.’
Mahomes saw his rise to fame as one of Taylor Swift’s “besties” since the singer started dating Travis Kelce, one of Mahomes’ teammates on the Chiefs.

The two are often together at Chiefs games at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City – they even celebrate by shaking hands.
And away from the game he collected, he often eats in New York near Swift’s Manhattan townhouse.
But Mahomes is also known for his work in football. He is a former player during his time at the University of Texas at Tyler and played with the team in Iceland in 2017.
She retired in 2017 and started her own fitness brand, and is also the owner and founder of the NWSL women’s team Kansas City Current – which Patrick also has a stake in.
The team is opening its women’s stadium in March, which is a very important time.
“These women need to feel valued and have their own space in order to be successful,” Mahomes said.
“I hope this will make women’s sports better everywhere and other cities continue to focus on women’s sports. Just like young boys dream of playing soccer in stadiums like Arrowhead, I want young girls everywhere to dream of playing in stadiums like CPKC.’
Last week, Mahomes divided the internet with a video in which he asked a guard to visit him after the Chiefs beat the Baltimore Ravens two weeks ago to reach the Super Bowl.

Some fans were not happy with his behavior and how he twiddled his finger while talking to a security guard in the street. People on social media criticized him for being on a ‘high horse’, but others disagreed and insisted that nothing was wrong.
Mahomes appeared to hit back at what appeared to be a deliberate cover-up on his Instagram account with the words: “I take the rumors as a compliment. The fact that you’re bringing my name to tables that I’m not at shows your passion. Be bullied.’
But for now, the Mahomes family’s attention is on Sunday’s Super Bowl in Vegas, where the Kings face the 49ers.
Patrick is bidding for his third Super Bowl victory and his team is looking to join the elite list of back-to-back title winners.
Mahomes is the owner and founder of the Kansas City Current women’s NWSL team.

Brittany, who is already in Vegas for a game, and Patrick met and started dating in high school and have two children together – a son and a daughter. They got married in 2022 and Kelce was one of her groomsmen.
It is not yet known if he will have a seat next to Taylor at the game.
He is currently in the middle of a four-date Eras Tour in Tokyo, Japan that ends Saturday night. But Japan is 17 hours ahead of Vegas, meaning time is on Swift’s side if she takes the trip, as she hopes.
