Brittany Matthews Had the Best Response to Fans Asking When She and Patrick Mahomes Will Get Engaged

It doesn’t matter how long a celebrity couple has been dating. As soon as they step out together, fans start speculating about when they’ll get hitched.

In the case of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, those are actually valid questions. He’s been going steady with longtime love and fellow athlete Brittany Matthews since high school and just purchased a house with her. These two lovebirds have a very sweet relationship and seem fully committed to each other and to raising their dogs together.

So when will the NFL star propose to his childhood sweetheart? It’s a question they get asked a lot. That’s why Matthews has the perfect response for when it inevitably comes up.

Brittany Matthews addressed engagement questions on Instagram

Even though their careers are both on an upward trajectory, this hard-working couple still has a lot of time to figure life out. Both Matthews and Mahomes are 24 years old and clearly aren’t in a rush to tie the knot.

Matthews recently shared a photo of herself with Mahomes with the caption, “7 years, the greatest 7 years with you! Lots of life changes, lots of growing, lots of surprises, lots of memories! Cheers to a lifetime with you.”

And because she already knew the comments would be flooded with proposal speculation, she headed off the impending comments with a response.

“P.s- to everyone that’s gonna ask when we are getting married, the answer is whenever we want,” she added, with a smiling and laughing emoji. Even though she kept it lighthearted, you have to wonder if she gets sick of hearing the same question all the time.

She reacted to fans predicting Mahomes would get Matthews a ring if he won the Super Bowl

Even though Matthews isn’t pushing the marriage issue, she did have a sweet response for fans who predicted that Mahomes could propose if he helped nab the Chiefs a big win in Super Bowl LIV.

Fans in the stands at the Houston Texans game held a sign that said, “Get Britt a Ring! We’ll Take One Too!” Matthews shared a photo of the fans holding the sign in her Instagram stories with a big heart next to it.

One reason Mahomes and Matthews aren’t in a rush to become husband and wife is they’re both very committed to their careers right now. Currently, Mahomes is considered one of the most promising young athletes in the NFL even though it’s only his second season as a starter. Some sports analysts are even calling him the best player in the league right now.

Meanwhile, Matthews is hard at work making a name for herself. After playing collegiate and professional soccer, she transitioned to starting her own personal training business.

Do these two have time to plan a wedding and get hitched in the off-season? Will Matthews get a ring if Mahomes gets one? We’ll all be watching closely to see what happens next!
