By winning Super Bowl LVII, Patrick Mahomes cemented his image as the current face of the NFL and virtually the only candidate to compete to take Tom Brady‘s spot as the greatest player of all time when his career is over. Regardless of all that, he apparently already has something in the present as well that the seven-time Super Bowl winner had in the recent past.
Tom Brady retired from the NFL and his marriage in the same season
Until last October 28, Tom Brady was married to Brazilian top model, Gisele Bündchen, forming the most famous and followed marriage involving an NFL player, however, after 13 years together, the famous couple decided to divorce.
The reason for the separation, according to a report by Page Six, was the former Victoria’s Secret Angel’s anger with the former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback over the regret of the announcement of his first retirement on February 1, 2022.
That’s surely why Patrick Mahomes’ young marriage to current Kansas City Current owner Bittany Matthews has taken the spot vacated by Brady and Büdchen.
The similarities of Mahomes’ and Brady’s marriages
Unlike Tom and Gisele’s marriage, Patrick and Bittany met in high school when neither was famous and the love story was cemented with a wedding that took place after the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback proposed to his girlfriend at the Super Bowl LIV ring ceremony, the first Lombardi Trophy in 50 years of franchise history.
Like Brady and Bündchen, Mahomes and Matthews have two sons from their marriage, Sterling Skye and Patrick Lavon. As a family, the four were together celebrating the father of the family’s second Super Bowl MVP at Disneyland.
