While on the Rich Eisen Show this week, Patrick Mahomes spoke about his daughter Sterling, whom he has with wife Brittany, a former professional soccer player.
Mahomes said that his plan was to never force his children to be athletes or to play sports. He said that although they never taught her how to kick a soccer ball, she has seen others do so and just picked it up. The star quarterback also mentioned bringing her to Kansas City Current games, the NWSL league co-owned by his wife.
He believes Sterling picked up on it and can now dribble a soccer ball around. The quarterback said that it is really fun to watch her pick up that skill all on her own, especially at such a young age.
The quarterback has said in the past that he will support whichever sport his daughter and future children decide to play. He and his wife are expecting their second child, a son, sometime this fall.
