LUBBOCK, Texas — In an interview Monday on 610 Sports Radio (KCSP) during a show called “The Drive,” former Texas Tech legendary quarterback turned NFL superstar was asked, “What’s more nervous – the fourth quarter of the Superbowl or finally proposing to your long-time girlfriend?”
On February 2, Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to their first Superbowl win in 50 years. Then, on September 1 (the same day he and his teammates received their Superbowl rings) Mahomes proposed to Brittany Matthews.
“On a day that was meant to celebrate you, you turned it into celebrating us,” Matthews wrote on Instagram.

I love you, forever and always! Cheers to spending our lifetime together and an inseparable bond🎉🥂💕
So, which was more nerve-racking?
“Probably proposing,” Mahomes responded. “You don’t think it’s going to be nerve-racking especially when you’ve been with someone for so long. But before you get on that knee, man, your heart is racing, I can promise you that!”
Who will be the best man?
“I’ll probably think about it for a while,” Mahomes said. “Luckily for me, I got a lot guys I can choose to be best man.”
